Another JK Runs SledgeHammer AT JV

The rocks are huge here and I've never seen so many in one place. I ran the trail with my rock crawling buddies from NorCal. Two builtup Broncos, 69Crawler and Bent70 from NorCalBroncos.com and a badass built YJ. It was their first time running SledgeHammer also but not their first time at JV. We all worked hard getting through. I was exhausted and psyched at the same time. This place is badass. Pictures don't do this place justice but here goes anyway.


Beginning of SledgeHammer















This young spotter did a great job.







More pics to come

Actually, that was my third time up that trail...it never gets old. Its awesome at nighttime too....kinda wish I didn't break cause I wanted to see if I could walk the plaque again.
Next time we will do jackhammer and more trails, its great to see your driving skills progress in no time we will do "full of hate" that trail I found off of clawhammer.

Awesome run Rob and great pics!! Glad you're having a great time down there. Nice work getting the the JK through Sledge - my hat's off to you. I love it ... you're not afraid to take it anywhere! Evap canister still untouched? It looks like you took the license plate off before the rock did. I took mine off last week when I built my new bumper and tire carrier.
