Five of us went to Kansas Rocks for a day of wheeling in sporadic rain. I've been going there for a decade to stay sharp on my off-roading skills, so when I'm out on adventure trips I know what I can safely handle. The drivers of the Max Tow Sport and Overland have never been off-road before. The red and silver Rubicons have been a few times as well, so it was a decent mix of experience in the group. The newcomers were enamored at how capable their Jeeps were. They thought they'd need massive lifts and tires to go anywhere in the muddy park, but they were proved wrong. Yet again, the Gladiator's long wheelbase was proven not to be a major hindrance. All had fun and my eight-year-old son got his mud puddle fix. I'm still cleaning it.
