4th of July plans got cancelled (Boo!) So did the next best thing and did some wheelin. Ended up just doing a 1/2 day trip to Gold Mountain. It's an easy trail, but one of my favorites for just cruisin. The rain made it nice as well.

Only got pictures in this spot since the rest is pretty easy.









Doing Mottino Wash Saturday. Should be fun!

I love how much wheeling you're doing. Your rig is also very photogenic and looks clean in every photo. Right on man. I know soon our paths will cross, I'm lookin forward to it!

Thank you sir, Wheeling is what it's all about! but I also like keeping her looking pretty too

Next year I'm looking to hit the Dusy, Fordyce, and Moab. I'm really excited for Moab again, but the other 2 seem like a blast too! Might be hitting the Rubicon in August as well. We need to set up some epic JF wheeling trips!

On the Big Bear bunny trails that shouldn't be a problem.

Motino was awesome! Definitely one of my favorites to date. Jeep performed great and was point and shoot all day. The MTR's seem to be grabbing a lot better now they they have around 1200 miles on them. The carnage for the group was one flat, a broken trackbar mount, ripped off license plate, and a broken taillight. The trail was rough on those JKU's, They are just so darn big.

For me I just got some new scratches and scuffed my fender pretty good. This trail made me consider getting corner armor and the tub rails sooner then later though.

Pictures were tough to come by. I was hanging towards the front so I didn't get many taken of me as far as I know.

Motino is a fun trail, what about the trail you did at the beginning of Rattlesnake canyon with Steve?

Sounds like a good day. Get that corner armor before it's to late.

Ha I already responded to that on the other forum but we skipped that. Did another loop afterwards instead (2n26y)?

I want to go back so I'm sure Steve won't mind showing us around. Lot's of neat trails out there I didn't know about!

I was so close to needing it. The fender and the gas can carrier saved me from leaning into it too far though

Got myself a new top courtesy of Craigslist. Got a sweet deal on it. I didn't the look of my old grey soft top, this one looks much better IMO. I threw the soft uppers on there too.

Not sure if I'm going to leave it like this for the rest of the summer or not. I like wheeling topless better.

Next on the never ending list of mods is probably going to be a Power Steering cooler. After that some corner armor and maybe tub rails.

John Bull and Holcomb in the rain. More summer BB stuff.

You can hear a squeak in the vid. It's coming from the front and just started. One of those tough to track down ones I guess.
