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
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.
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.
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.

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.”

Congratulations to Shane “DOZ3R” for December 2012 JOTM Winner!
This picture was taken by Josh Bertschy at his event in Clayton on October 13th of this year. This was my shakedown run with the Baertrax 609 axles. Worked as promised. I drive this rig almost everyday and love it more every time I drive it. It actually just made it from Dallas to Laredo and back. We also added ARB’s, OBA, the Raceline Beadlocks and 40″ Krawlers during the axle build too. Most of the armor is Poison Spyder steel except the tube fenders which are aluminum. I’ve got Mastercrafts, Genright aluminum front bumper, a new gas tank skid, Amsteel rope, and an evap skid in the garage waiting for a long weekend and hopefully they will all be present during the next photo op. Happy Holidays and Wheeling to all.

Congratulations Landon “JKCrawl3r” JOTM Winner!
This picture was taken by a fellow Jeeper from JeepForum on September 22, 2012 at Bridgeport, Texas on “The Twins”. This outing was originally made to test out the new lockers David Anderson had installed a few weeks before. Once I arrived I decided to put them to the real test. I made it up the first half and 90 percent of the second half when I had to get tugged a little by Hanahou because of high centering on the top. The Jeep performed great and it was a beautiful weekend. The Jeep is a 2011 JK with a 4 inch lift, 35s, 4.88s, Bumpers, Winch, Sliders, Sport cage, Line-x tub, Detroit in the rear, Spartan lunchbox up front, and some other bolt ons.

Congratulations David “Flying M” JOTM Winner!
This picture was taken at the top of Waterfall Trail at the original Katemcy Rocks OHV Park by The Better Half (Pam), during one of BaerTrax Customer Appreciation Runs. You can see Russ Baer?s legs in front of the Jeep, as the spotter. A great spotter actually makes this section easy. You may also recognize some long time LSJC members watching from the rocks.
Rawrr?s (Rob Anderson) JOTM picture back in Aug 2009 was taken at the lower section of this trail. To this day Waterfall is one of my favorite trails ever, and I miss that park; although K2 is a very good replacement.
A great time was had. It just doesn?t get much better than a weekend of wheeling with
