Locked Jeep Cherokee XJ Climbing tree

My buddy James was playing around at some local trails one afternoon and decided to try out his new lockers on this tree near the top of a hill. I actually recorded him the second time he tried it and he didn’t make it as far due to already spinning some ruts on the first go around but still very cool to watch and shows the advantage of having locked differentials.

One ton Jeep XJ jumps into tree, doesn’t break!

Bruce Wiles, the original owner and builder of this awesome XJ on one ton axles, takes it for a rough ride up the speed bounty hill at Dirty Turtle Offroad Park in Bedford, Kentucky. The first two attempts are unsuccessful as you can see a good size ledge at the bottom of the hill causes his front wheels to become airborne and not able to steer. The jeep bounces into a pretty good size tree and the Jeep seems to take the hit without damage. A well built rig and good exo-cage allow him a third attempt in which he makes it to the top! The low quality iphone video doesn’t do this monster hill justice but it’s certainly still entertaining to watch.

This girl’s combos are on point! Killing it at Dude Date 2014

I had a decent amount of footage of this chick from Dude Date and put together a short clip of her riding. I filmed most of it while we were at the Motorcycle Superstore outlet. She was pulling off lots of combos and killing the streets all day. Have a look for yourself below.

Epic Jeep Fail

So a friend picked up a new Jeep ZJ that was already mostly built, or so it seemed. After trying to remove a log from the trail in reverse with a strap attached to the front bumper his control arms snapped and allowed the entire front axle to roll forward. So far forward in fact that the front differential cover and tie rod was facing the ground and the jeep now steered side to side rather than left to right. This was a first for me to see and we all got a good laugh out of it. Now someone hand me a wrench…

Tearing up the streets 9-21-14 – Louisville, Kentucky

I went riding with my boys at One Wheel Nation yesterday along with some other locals and it was a perfect day for some wheelies through downtown Louisville, Kentucky! Weather was amazing minus a few gusts of wind. Check out the edit and how much fun we had below!

New Honda Grom gets airborne!

Not sure of this rider’s name(if someone can fill me in that would be great), but I caught this guy launching his Grom off this fun little berm in Shawnee Park. Just another reason these Groms look like so much fun. They’re such a hybrid bike that you can do nearly any riding style with them, not saying that you should try and sail one over a motocross double but these little bikes are perfect for shenanigans like this all while being street legal. I’m curious to see if any of the other big four brands (Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha) will follow in Honda’s footsteps and produce similar motorcycles.
