Congratulations to Bryan “Stickerhead” for April 2016 JOTM Winner!
The picture was taken by my brother, Lee Bob on Sunday Cruise on Feb 19th. We had just mud- bogged thru Whatever and decided to do Sunday Cruise as our last trail of the day. Got half way down the obstacle and sunk! Backed up and tried it three times and the squirrels said “enough!” I ended up backing out of the obstacle. Spent several hours getting “Gilmer” out of that running gear.
Congratulations to “Tall Steve” March 2016 JOTM Winner!
This picture was taken in Hot springs during the fall run a couple of years ago. I was trying to get close to the tree to clear the rocks and when I gassed the Blue Mule it climbed the tree. It scared me and Sharon but did not effect my son Jake that was in the back seat. Everyone yelled STOP so they could take pics but I had to back down a foot to make myself feel more comfortable before pictures were taken. Shortly after this picture was taken on the same trail I got the Blue Mule on three wheels and almost flopped again, it was a scary morning of wheeling for us for sure but fun. The picture was taken by LSJC club member Skip Hill…Thanks Skip!
Congratulations to Jeff “TREX” February 2016 JOTM Winner!

Congratulations to Al “Wushaw” January 2016 JOTM Winner!
This pic was taken in Clayton on the Jim Parker Memorial Run at Green Acres on Green Mamba extension, Cal was spotting and did a fantastic job. I made this obstacle on the first attempt.
It was a great run, Clayton is very challenging and a lot of fun.
I want to thank everyone for the votes!
Chris, blue TJ for taking the pic.
Congratulations to Skip Hill and Rick “Hardtimes” for 2015 JOTY winners!
Congratulations to Lane “63Willys” for December 2015 JOTM Winner!
This picture was taken while on a camping trip to Arbuckle Offroad Park with Shawn Tinkam aka Shawn, Steve Jones aka chyznachoslayer and Dean Cline aka Dac Dac. We were up on top of the big rock outcropping watching a group of side by side and quad drivers rescue one of their own that had rolled down into the trees while trying to climb another part of the rock (they initially refused our help). Dean and I decided to give a shot at climbing up to the top over the big crack in the rock. My initial line wasn’t quite right which brought the passenger tire off the ground but Dean straightened me out. Steve and Shawn were at the top cheering and filming as it happened. It was a very fun weekend of camping and wheeling with our sons.
Congratulations to Bob “Offcamber” for November 2015 JOTM Winner!
The photo was taken the on our last day in Ouray this year after attending the Jeep Jamboree there. Friday and Saturday we did the Ouray Jamboree with the guys from Screaming Lizard Customs and had a great time. I think our favorite part of the trip was Sunday when we decided to take the Last Dollar Road from Ridgeway to Telluride and that photo was taken at an overlook off of the Last Dollar Road. We drove the 35 miles through the back country and into Telluride, picked up some food and then had a picnic at another of the overlooks. We drove about half the trip back after sunset and it was a great experience. There are very few other vehicles on the road so you feel like you are a million miles away from civilization. It’s mostly ranch country so there are lots of cattle, horses and of course the local wildlife. We saw tons of deer, elk and even a bear on the drive back. My jeep is a 2012 Rubicon with 3.5″ of lift, 35″ Nitto tires, Fox 2.0 shocks, synergy suspension steering components, Rampage front bumper, AEV rear bumper and Baja Designs Stealth lightbar which was awesome for driving the backroads at night!
Congratulations to Larry “CJ8Larry” for October 2015 JOTM Winner!
This picture was taken back in May during the club run to Hot Springs ORV park. The trail / obstacle was Bailey’s Boulders. The second half of Bailey’s boulders has always given me fits in the past but this time someone (I think it was Redneck Ron?) suggested a different line to hug the left side. I tried it and the old Scrambler just walked right up it. I think the new Krawlers helped a little too. It was one of my more proud Jeep moments.
The Jeep is a 1981 CJ-8 Scrambler running a Ford FI 302 / C6 auto / Dana 300 with 4:1. Out back is a ford 9″ with a Detroit locker and 4:88 gears. The front is a Dana 44 with a new Grizzly locker, 4:88s and Yukon Chromoly shafts. Tires are 37″ BFG blue label Krawlers on 17″ Allied beadlocks.
Thank you for the votes. CJ’s Rule!
Congratulations to Jeepin Jen for September 2015 JOTM Winner!
This picture was taken during our 2015 LSJC “Run to the Rockies” trip to Colorado. This was our 2nd day on the trails, after having some unfortunate down time with broken rear driveshaft. This was taken on Placer/Picayne Gulch trail outside of Animas Forks. Ron asked me what I was doing when I pulled the jeep over, parked and got out. I said “look at that scenery”! Enough said. I’m ready to go back! Thanks to those who voted for me!
Congratulations to Rick “Hardtimes” for August 2015 JOTM Winner!
This pic was taken by Toby Allen (President of Arkansas Crawlers) on the LSJC Hot Springs Run in May 2015.
Toby had volunteered to lead a group. For some reason it wound up being myself, Hondo and Tall Steve. We were going to be doing some trails to test out Steve’s new front ProRock 44 and Kevin’s fairly new King Coilovers. We should’ve known. Toby took us on a few median trails that seem to be getting a little more difficult. Who would of thought. This pic was taken on Four Fingers. Although following his grocery getter,our little TJ,JK and my YJ hung in there pretty well. It may not look it in the pic but it’s “stable” (famous last words).
This YJ is a “93″ model. Yes…It’s almost a antique. With only 87K miles on it and mostly original, it will preform off road with some of the best. The 16″ KingCoils in the front, air shocks in the rear keep the axles planted firmly on the ground (most the time). Atlas transfer case and BFG Reds pull it though most of the time. If not it’s on the driver (or so I’ve been told).
