North American JK Experience

North American JK Experience
Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to go on a few organized hardcore Off Road Trail Adventures. I have had a blast on these events and thought it would be great to bring this kind of experience to the Jeep JK community.
Objective
This is an extreme event that is intended, by design, to be the most demanding and toughest JK only event EVER. I would like to get all the top Manufacturers of JK performance parts together and have them wheel their rigs. It will be an event that will PROMOTE the off-road and on road capabilities of your products and your JK. On the trail, expect very hardcore terrains and possible body damage. There will be camping three nights on the trail and you will need to be self sufficient (food, shelter and repair). This is going to be an EVO experience you will remember for a lifetime.

Minimum Vehicle Requirements
• 2007 or newer jeep wrangler
• Two people per JK
• 37s or bigger tires
• Full size spare tire
• Lockers front and rear
• Sport cage
• Winch
• 2 recovery points
• Fire extinguisher
• First Aid Kit
• CB radio
• Street legal ,registered
• NO TRAILERING VEHICLES DURING THE RUN!

General outline of the RUN
Dec.7-12
6 day event with 3 nights of camping and the 3 nights of hotels
This year we will be starting in El Paso, Texas and ending somewhere in the Mojave Desert.
There will be many difficult rock crawling trails, open desert running, sand dunes, along with on highway road traveling and other surprises.

Sponsors/Manufactures
This is a great opportunity for everyone. This event will be the most extreme JK run of its kind allowing you to showcase your best products and prove them off-road and on. This is not a competition but rather an extreme 4×4 adventure with other MFGs in the JK industry.
This is an open event for ANY manufacturer of JK performance parts that would wish to sponsor and participate in this event. It will be limited to 15 sponsors on the run.
You may bring any JK you would like. You are responsible for all your expenses on the run.
As a sponsor you will be able to do live updates to your websites, U tubes and 4×4 forums. These updates should be only about your companies participation in the event, trails ran that day and status of your vehicle. This event is intended to be great proving grounds for the Jeep JK and your products by testing your rig and skills to the Extreme. All sponsors on the run will be mandatory to attempt all obstacles on the trip at least 3 times before winching.

Invited Guest
We will be picking 3 avid JK off roaders to join us through a raffle on our web site. These lucky guests with their sick JKs will be given the opportunity to wheel with the manufactures of their favorite off-road parts wheeling there JK to the fullest extent while testing their driving skill and aftermarket parts.

Sounds awesome. We did a similar event in Michigan this past summer where we hit a handful of ORV parks over 4 days and tried to stay off pavement in between. It was a really good time.

An unexpected perk was the friendships made. We all make new friends during a day of wheeling, but wheeling and camping with people for 4 consecutive days turns into a team effort to make sure everyone gets through. We are looking at doing another this summer.

I wish this was a bit closer to me. I would come and join in a heartbeat!

Ditto! Haven't figured out if this is going to be big on Project JK or what the deal is.

Call Mel... I am under the impression that this is all him. I am sure JKF will be there in some form... but it doesnt appear to be a "JKF" event.

would be kick ass to see the Poly KOH Rig there!!!

I would totally go but its hard to take a week off with less than two weeks notice. Got too many projects to finish up before christmas to take off. Might catch up with them in JV at the end.

Those of you that think you know everything really annoy those of us that do!
