HEARTLAND : The 2012 JK-Experience - Silver Lake & Rocks and Valleys [Part 2 of 3] a WAYALIFE Film

Check us out at: http://www.WAYALIFE.com Because there is so much more to the JK-Experience than just wheeling, our 2nd day would be what is known as a "road day" as we would be doing a lot of on pavement driving but, it was also what I like to call a "tour day" as we got to do a lot of that as well. To start off our day, we headed over to the world famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway where we soon found the reason why we needed to have the undercarriages of our Jeeps clean and completely devoid of mud - we were being grated a chance of a lifetime and, would be running a lap around the Brickyard!! After all the fun we had at the IMS, we headed over to Impact Racing where we got a private tour of their manufacturing facility and, got a chance to visit the Don Schumacher Racing facility where they gave us a VIP tour as well. Leaving Indiana, we made a long trek out to Perrysburg, OH, and wrapped up the day by hosting a meet-n-greet and having a great time with fellow Jeepers in the area. Good times!! Being in Ohio, I think there there must have been some kind of a calling to our Jeeps... a calling to come visit their place of birth. And, as if by destiny, that's exactly where Day 3 of the 2012 JK-Experience would take us to - the Toledo Assembly Complex. Now, I should point out that public tours of the Jeep plant isn't something that Chrysler typically does or even allows for that matter and the fact that we got to go at all was really amazing. Day 4 would take us about half way up the state of Michigan and out to a wonderful little beach community known a Silver Lake. Here we would get to spend the first part of our day playing on the only dunes that allow private motorized vehicles to play on this side of the Rockies. The second half of our day would be spent at a relatively new off-road park called Rocks and Valleys and it boasts over 200 arces of hills, rocks, mud, tightly planted trees and other obstacles that offer a great time for wheelers of all skill levels. It would also be where most of us would get our first experience wheeling on tires!! We hope you enjoy our film and come back soon to watch the final part in this series. The 2012 Off Road Evolution JK-Experience presented by Nitto Tire was also made possible from support of the following sponsors: AdArt, ARB, ATX Wheels, Daystar, Discount Tire, Dynatrac, Dynomax, EVO MFG, Hi-Lift, Hora Zero, Impact, King, Mastercraft, Project-JK, Rancho, Rockstar, Superchips, Skyjacker, Tochmate and WARN.

HEARTLAND : The 2012 JK-Experience -- Drummond Island & Turtle Ridge [Part 3 of 3] a WAYALIFE Film
Check us out at: http://www.WAYALIFE.com Our last two days on the 2012 JK-Experience would take us over the Mackinac Bridge to Michigan's Upper Peninsula and then to its eastern most point where we would cross the St. Mary's river by ferry to the largest fresh water island in the United States, Drummond Island. In addition to having an awesome off-road park like Turtle Ridge, Drummond Island hosts over 117 miles of trails that meander through boreal forests, across glacial rock deposits and stone ridges carved out by Lake Huron. It truly is one of the most beautiful places you will ever see and, we were happy to relax, explore and end our JK-Experience there. We hope you enjoyed our JK-Experience HEARTLAND series and come back soon to watch other films that we make.

Building of a Dynatrac ProRock 80 Full-Float Rear Axle
Come visit us at: http://www.WAYALIFE.com With more and more people building up their Jeeps JK Wranglers with 40" tires and pushing them with the kind of big horsepower that a HEMI or an LS swap will provide, there's been a real demand for an axle that can handle the abuse and Dynatrac has the answer for it -- the ProRock 80! With an 11.25" ring gear, a 2" diameter pinion, 40 spline 4340 full float shafts and all packaged in a high clearance, light weight rigid housing, there really is nothing out there that comes close to all that you'll get with this axle. In this video, you'll get to see exactly how it's made and right here in America!





Obstacle Course, Hill Climb, and Coal Chute! - Top Truck Challenge 2013
Purchase the Top Truck Challenge DVD here! http://www.4wheelparts.com/search.aspx?kw=top+truck+challenge+dvd The Obstacle Course begins with a shockingly tall and long slippery hill descent known as the "first hill" and it ends with a nasty dogleg gully that's tantalizingly close to the finish line. In between is a treasure trove of terror. The "lower section" forces competitors to navigate a 360-degree turn through three deep water holes and sand. From there, competitors travel up a hill to the "upper section" that includes a deceiving off-camber U-turn (known as "U-turn Hill"), two deep water holes, and numerous tight turns. This event has a 10-minute time limit, but speed is the enemy. This is because the course is marked with numerous cones and each one hit adds 20 seconds to the overall time. If all four tires of a rig travel outside a cone the rig is disqualified at that point. Safety violations net a whopping two-minute penalty. Clearly, accuracy is the key to success in the Obstacle Course. Think back to those hillclimbs you've done in your 4x4. Yeah, the TTC Hill Climb isn't like that. The Hill Climb is built specifically for TTC, it's approximately 600 feet in length and it has an average angle of approximately 60 degrees. It twists and turns as it winds through the poison oak and it's peppered with strategically-placed deep holes and dirt hills. Yes, we added hills to our Hill Climb. The Hill Climb is loose, steep, and unpredictable. Naturally, we don't let drivers see it before they run it because that would ruin the surprise. The Hill Climb rewards those who can think on-the-fly and punishes those who are thinking about the next event. We allowed each competitor 5 minutes to tackle the hill and during that time they could stop, reverse, or winch. If a competitor exceeded the time limit, traveled out of bounds, or violated a safety rule they were disqualified at that point. The Mini Rubicon, a staple of Top Truck for years, was a brutal event that forced competitors to fight for every inch of forward progress. It was tough and unforgiving. We wanted something tougher. So, for 2013 we replaced the Mini Rubicon with the awe-inspiring Coal Chute. This event uses a newly developed area (Rock Rash Ridge) at the Hollister Hills SVRA that contains an amazing collection of man-made obstacles. Naturally, we tweaked it to make it exclusive to Top Truck. Our mind-bending course was approximately 525 feet in length, and included steep walls in excess of 7 feet tall and jumbles of rocks and cement tubes. We even brought in a water truck and created a waterfall on the final cement climb. The course was broken into four distinct sections. We threw competitors a curve ball and allowed them to skip one of the two first sections. However, we penalized each competitor 10 minutes if they bypassed the first section and 6 minutes if they bypassed the second section. Strategy was a major player at this event. There was a 20-minute time limit and safety violations netted a two-minute penalty. If two of the vehicles tires traveled outside of the cones the competitor was disqualified at that point.
