HEARTLAND : The 2012 JK-Experience - IMS, Jeep Plant, Silver Lake & Rocks and Valleys [Part 2 of 3]
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.

Long Road to the Hammers - A Behind the Scene Look at the 2013 King of the Hammers Race
Come check us out at: http://www.WAYALIFE.com
There really is no tougher race on the face of the planet than the King of
the Hammers. At about 180 miles in length and traversing 20 of the hardest
trails in Johnson Valley, the 2013 race was by far the most brutal one to
date. In the Every Man Challenge Stock Class, only 1 of 26 rig crossed the
finish line and only 5 or 33 made it across in the Modified Class. In the
main event which required a run up Backdoor, Sunbonnet Pass, Spooners and
Outer Limits, only 27 out of the 127 rigs managed to complete the race. The
long road of hope, determination, suffering, disappointment and defeat is
something that most everyone in this race endures. In this short film,
you'll get to follow Mel Wade of Off Road Evolution and Jim McGean of
Dynatrac as they travel this road on their quest to build up two separate
race rigs and use them to compete in both the 2013 Smittybilt Every Man
Challenge Stock Class and the Ultra 4 King of the Hammers main event.
The Nitto Tire, Discount Tire, Off Road Evolution and Dynatrac Race Team
consisted of Mel Wade as the main driver, Jim McGean as co-driver and Greg
Melancon as alternate co-driver. This team was made possible by the
additional support of ATX Wheels, Impact, Mastercraft Safety, King, WARN,
Torchmate, EVO MFG, Royal Purple, J.E. Reel, Truck-Lite, Long Beach Taco
Cart, PSC, Anzo USA, Advance Adapters, Brown Dog, Summit Racing, Atlas
Transfer, 505 and WAYALIFE Productions.

Read more about VENGEANCE here:
It's not everyday that you meet a guy like Ken Offerbeck. Better known by
his screen name HappyCurmudgeon, he was the kind of guy who was committed
to helping others, someone that everyone loved and was someone who helped
make the Project-JK.com forum what it is today. Cindy and I have always
considered ourselves lucky to know him as a personal friend and when it
became clear that he was losing his battle with cancer, we knew we had to
step in and help him to fulfill a dream of his -- to provide for his
daughter long after he was gone.
December 18, 2012 will mark exactly one year to the day when we bought
Ken's 2-Door Jeep JK Wrangler from him and began its year long
transformation, turning silver into gold and creating the beast known as,
VENGEANCE!! Bidding on this badass, stretched out 2-door JK will begin on
Tuesday, December 11, 2012 and will be sold on Tuesday, December 18, 2012
to the highest bidder.

JK Experience Area BFE Helldorado Extreme 4x4 Trail Run by Jeep JKs at Easter Jeep Safari
Area BFE is a rock crawling and 4x4 heaven. These Jeep JK's are some of
the best built if not the best built in the world with some of the best
drivers and supporters of the off-road community present. The trail being
run is upper Helldorado. The first obstacle is known as the gatekeeper,
later is the squeeze, followed by the waterfall at the end. Entry to area
BFE is free of charge, but donations at the gate are appreciated.
EVO 1's Final Run on the Rubicon Trail's Little Sluice
Come visit us at: http://www.WAYALIFE.com
Approximately 100 feet in length and filled with enormous boulders that
offer little in the way of traction, the Little Sluice has stood for
decades as being the premier obstacle on the world famous Rubicon Trail.
Unfortunately, as of Friday, September 28, 2012, it will also cease to
exist as we've come to know, love, respect and fear it. In spite of
significant efforts made over the last 2 years by organizations such as The
Rubicon Trail Foundation and Friends of the Rubicon to prevent this from
happening, El Dorado County Supervisors have decided to proceed with their
plans to break up many of the boulders within the Little Sluice and level
out the rest with tons of fill rock that'll be flown in by helicopter.
With this knowledge in hand, Mel Wade of Off Road Evolution asked us to
join him on the Rubicon Trail to give this iconic obstacle, one final run.
And, on Saturday, September 22, 2012, that's exactly what he did,
completely unassisted and in the very same 4-door Jeep JK Wrangler that he
used to conquer it 3 years before. In this short video, you will get to see
raw footage of his run with limited edits and no music so that you can get
the full experience of just how challenging the Little Sluice really was.
If you're unhappy about what you're losing and want to find out how you can
help prevent more alterations from being made to the Rubicon Trail or, even
help prevent its potential closure in the future, I would invite you to

Teraflex Trail Review: Ouray Colorado
http://www.teraflex.com Ouray Colorado is one of the most surreal Jeeping
location on planet earth.
It's not known for its rock crawling, or difficult obstacles. What it is
known for is epic beauty, and rich history. Take a trip with Brooke and the
Jeep Jamboree through this scenic Christmas Card town. Find out why Ouray
Colorado is a MUST DO for any Jeeper.
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!
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.
