Rubicon

Pictures never do justice. They just don't. You all know that.
Here's the deal with the Rubicon trail. Oh I do like the Fordyce trail much better. But it was closed this year so. The deal with the Rubicon is it never gives up. Most 4 wheel drive trails give you a little break. The Rubicon is wheeling from start to finish.

Here's Bill going thru and obstacle. Oh the other thing is your wheelin constantly it's hard to stop and get pics. But I got me some.












You wana take your car thru this stuff?

This is not the way you want to wheel.

nothing new in that- -remember the Jeepster? Jeep used to make small cars back in the 50's. Everything old is new again.

I for one am glad to see DC out of Jeep. Maybe they'll put solid axles back under the trucks...

Yabbut, the Jeepster still had solid front axles, and was a decent off roader. Nothing like a CJ, but it got the job done, specifically it was "trail rated on the rubicon", meaning it did the entire Rubicon in stock form. Even the Wagoneer, with all it's bells and whistles still had a Dana 60 driveline and could do the Rubicon. Those new jeeps are lucky to handle a speed bump without wetting themselves.

Nice! She looks happy.

I bet the guys detailing the jeep for the wedding were cursing, when they heard the bride was going to be wearing white.
