Rock Crawling Clinic 10/24/11 Table Mesa AZ

Where: Table Mesa (New River) AZ

When: Monday, October 24, 2011

What: Intensive Rock-crawling course focuses on classic Arizona rock wash trails.

"Intensive 4-Wheeling

For those who have previously had some 4x4 training and/or experience, build on the fundamental skills with more advanced techniques for traction, line analysis, trip planning, and recovery. This course is more demanding of both driver and vehicle—pinstriping and a skid plate work out are likely, so discussing your specific experience and vehicle set-up with an instructor is required before you book this. Though strenuous, the emphasis is safety and responsible trail use.
Vehicle requirements: 33” or taller tires, skid plates & rocker protection (factory JK is adequate), recovery points, one traction device recommended (JK TCS fine).

One-Day Course (5-7 hours)

Group course held at Table Mesa:
$169 per vehicle ($150 club price)

Happy trails!

Great group yesterday! Most had taken other training with us before, so we were able to focus on "the meat" of rock crawling--great line choice discussions, enthusiastic recovery demos, and fun interaction. We also had some "special guests" too, to provide some fun insights: Matt from Funtreks and Mike from Pink Jeep.

Thank you to all who attended!

Could you provide a brief explination of photo #4 with th hi-lift and the winch. Looks like a great way to put the jack through the side of the jeep.

This was a brief demo for both Hi-lift and winching. In the past, we recovered a TJ from this same spot. The TJ's driveshaft was sitting on the rock, and so in order to safely drag him off, we used the Hi-lift to push the Jeep up off the driveshaft first. Hi-lifts are handy for being able to jack yourself up off of the stuck part, and drive off, provided your wheels have enough traction. Typically, as you drive forward or backward, the Hi-lift moves in an arch with the motion of the Jeep, then just drops down once the Jeep has moved a foot or two. The only reason the Hi-lift would go into the door is if you did not give the foot of it a good purchase point on the rock and it popped out backwards from the weight of the vehicle.

In this demo, we used the Hi-lift to recreate pushing the vehicle further up on the driver side, rolling more of the high-center onto the mid-crossmember instead of the driveshaft (JK's DS was not touching--just the control arm, but for the sake of the demo, pretended we were worried about the DS). Then, as we winched the Jeep forward, the DS is kept out of harms way. Here's some video, too:
First video explains the set up--why Hi-lift and winch...

Second video shows recovery in motion:

Thanks for the question!

Thanks Nena,
One of these days I will get out to one of you clinics. Every time I read one of your posts, I learn sumthin' new or learn a different way to do it.

Thanks again.

P.S. Nice legs
