August 2013 JOTM Winner

Congratulations to Nick “TJ_BULLDOG” for August 2013 JOTM Winner!

05 TJ 4.0 6spd on 35′s at the time a 3.5 inch lift

Saturday May 5th, day after my birthday. I was showing off, thought I would give the Twins a shot. So I preceded up the middle section. I didn’t make it very far. I got hung up and after many attempts I decided that I wasn’t going to make it. So I then did what I knew I shouldn’t have done, I stood on the skinny pedal and hopped the D35. Next sound I heard was the snap, I broke the drivers side axle. After getting two jeeps up top I began to walk my jeep up to a flat surface, stopping once to push the axle back in. After 5 hrs of being in the dirt, one trip to autozone and spare axles brought from McKinney I called AAA. End of the day, it cost me my pride, broke locker and a new shaft. All in all, it was a great day. Too many names to list, a big thanks to all the guys who stopped wheeling and gave their time to help me.

Congratulations to Rick “HanaHou” for June 2013 JOTM Winner!

This was at Green Acres in Clayton, Oklahoma the 2013 Jim Parker Run. Last year I watch the group climb Jeff’s Ledge as I took the easier route, and then had to get pulled off a rock.
This year I have the Dana 44 rear with a Detroit, so Jeff’s Ledge was not going to stop me. Thanks to Jason Villa for taking the picture.

The Jeep is a 2006 TJ with a 4 banger, Warn Power Plant, RE 4.5 lift, Dana 30 front with a aussie locker, Dana 44 rear with disks, and a Detroit, 488 Gears, hand throttle, sliders, corners, and Hello Kitty stickers. LOL

May 2013 JOTM Winner Kade “Rugged4″!

Congratulations to Kade “Rugged4″ for May 2013 JOTM Winner!

Here is his 2007 Jeep Sahara Unlimited. 2.5″ Skyjacker lift, XRC front bumper with 8k Smitty Built winch. Smitty Built XRC rock sliders. Epic custom flat fenders. 35″ Dick Cepek Bone Crushers. The picture was taken during an unofficial Bridgeport run on 4/6/13. It felt like an official run with the amount of Jeeps. I was leading an “easy” group around the first part of the day. I made it up the Twins and wanted to run spiderweb before lunch. I was about to pull out of the Spiderweb when I heard the famous, “You can do it.” from behind me. So I thought I’d sit on the spare while waiting for my winch line.

April 2013 JOTM Winner Matt “SofaRider”

April 1st, 2013 Comments off

Hey, thanks for all of the votes. The picture was taken at the top of one of the steeper drop-offs near the end of Hell’s Revenge, in Moab, last summer. My brother (Tim, aka Sooner Crawler) snapped the picture just as I was starting to ease over the edge. I was a little nervous about this section and knew if I stared at it too long I’d never get down (I hate heights)… Moab is a great place!

The JK is pretty run-of-the-mill. It’s a 2009 Rubicon with 3″(ish) of lift, 35″ Toyo’s, Raceline beadlocks, and PSC hydro-assist steering. It does just about everything we want it to do.

March 2013 JOTM Winner! Ron “Redneck Ron”

Congratulations Ron “Redneck Ron” for March 2013 JOTM Winner!

Thanks for the votes guys (and gals). This a pic of our TJ in Moab on the Behind The Rocks trail. Very fun trail. We were out there with a small group of our LSJC friends, being lead around by a great older gentleman named Gunther.

I took the picture. Jen was actually driving (claims it is her JOTM. Meh, whatever) I told her to take this line after watching everyone in our group taking a off camber route around the rocks that risked scraping the tops and cages against a rock ledge. Our Jeep was too wide and tall for that line.

If you have never been to Moab, you got to put it on your bucket list. Awesome place. Just beautiful.

Our TJ is a 2002 streched to 106″ with Dana 60′s, Atlas 5.0/1, PSC full hydro, 39.5″ Iroks, blah, blah, blah.

January 2nd, 2013 Comments off

Congratulations to Tim “Bounty” for 2012 JOTY

This photo was taken by club member tehiv (Thomas) in Hot Springs, during the 2012 spring run. The trail doesn?t have a name, but it?s B28 on the map ? it has a rating of just 2, but scenic and fun. Hot Springs is our faVorite place to wheel, some parts rarely get seen if you head straight for the harder trails, but we tend to cruise the easier stuff. The Jeep is a 2005 Rubicon, it has 2.5? of spring lift and I run 33? Goodyears. Most of the upgrades I have are armor, althOugh I have added a Teraflex tummy tuck as well. I can?t wait for the next Hot Springs run, thank you to everyone that voted.”
