Hey everyone,

It was that time again to take our Lifted JT offroad


This was Felicity's first time rock crawling and listening to her spotter (better yet) trusting her spotter). The JT is so long and you could def tell on the trail. Strawberry Pass Trail is a old Jeep trail and you needed to make sure your line was good because there is some spots!

Anyways, I hope you all enjoy the video, if you have questions about the lift etc, comment here or there and I will help answer!

It looks like one needs a Gaia account to follow your link.

I liked the video. Lately, I have spent far too much time watching these kind of videos waiting for my ordered Gladiator to come in. I call it "Jeep porn". My wife is starting to wish I would watch the real porn. :)

So, my biggest comment to any film maker is be careful about fast pans. Panning too fast can be dizzying (sometimes literally so) for the viewer. You'll probably want to get an external microphone with a wind filter because you all will end up in some windy places.

Take care and I will watch your progress with interest.

Thank you for this... Yes our last few videos the sounds has been really bad... I belive we have corrected the problem with a new mic :) We are making our long over due "Current Setup" ver1.

Got BooKoo time in the Eldorado and in AZ. Done part of the Strawberry, but ran out of time to do the whole thing as I had some stuff over in the Eastern side I wanted to get at. Especially loved the drive down PCH from Carmel and up and over into the Eldorado. If you are heading to AZ this time of year and you are not going N into Rim Country the heat can be a killer. I have prob done just about every trail out there that has any challenge to it at all. Ran the AZ trails for years on the way to Cali and back.

We would love to find some AZ trails maybe run into some hot springs or natural swimming spots would be cool too. We havent looked for trails in az yet since we are still in cali. Hopefully next week we will be in AZ ...

I didn’t have any issues with the sound and on my TV. Videos are great and I appreciate the free “porn” too!!

Felicity did a great job with spotting. Thanks for the videos as they do help me to understand the truck before I get mine. Keep em coming!!

Here are some trails, nothing hard but lots of scenery.

Table Mesa Exit off I 17 N just outside of Phoenix is THE gathering spot. Its BLM land tons of trails and always people there. I have run it all, most of them are challenging to a degree as most are in the washes and dry creek beds: NOTE OF CAUTION, FLASF floods take Jeeps and LIVES. It may rain in the N and now at Table Mesa which is in the Sonoran Desert. The dry creek bed you drove thru about 10 am that morning, at 4 pm it is UNPASSABLE, it's over 100 yards wide and flowing at 25 mph!!! Seen it and have saved a life and a Jeep.

Want some incredible views and trails then head to Sedona and get ahold of Nina Barlow, https://barlows.us/contact/ Nina wheels and wrenches with the VERY BEST, known her for 20 years, have wheeled with her in Moab and all over Az, she great people, in fact she is on this forum, but I do not remember her screen name. She is also a very astute businesswoman!

Just wondering, did you air down your tires?
No we did not, because our onboard air is out for service , we knew there for be a very long drive with 15lbs and didn’t want to do that so we took it extra easy. We have our air back now
