Default Warning Jeep Content

As some of you know Michele bought herself a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. We immediately put a 3" lift and 35's on it.

Kind of like it.....Sat radio, all the up buttons, t-tops, aka freedom top, wheel base.

Today we went up to Peru Creek Road and Chihuahua Gulch.

First couple from near the top of C. Gulch.

Last bunch from the top of Peru Creek where we had to rescue a rig trying to bust 50 yards of 4-5 foot deep drift going uphill....by himself.

Jeep or not...that is a sweet looking rig! I bet it wheels just fine too.

Nice rig, glad to see it wheels good. (working very hard right now not to say "I told you so")

Too bad you now have that Jeep affliction where now you go wheeling and don't ask any of your Toyota buddies to go along with you. I guess we've lost them to the dark side.............

Nice looking rig guys, congrats to Michelle.

Can't believe that guy was trying to bust snow on his own. What was he going to do, spend the night or dig it out with his hands????

Way to go Brady. Nothing wrong with Jeeps. Ther're all OHV's like we are. Heck, I thought you were the anti jeep guy. Guess not.

I'm sure you and Michelle remember all those old guys in Rubi's idling through the Golden Crack without flinching as we all ate lunch. Then proceeded to spank the hard line on the next obstacle.

I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time. But hey at least he didn't just drive around it, looked easy enough to do on both sides.. so give it up to the guy for staying on the road and working the drift for a bit.

And yeah nice Jeep Steve..
