Poly Performance Rubicon Run.

I was waiting for others to post this because I got almost no pix.... but I guess I'll start and hope others will add thier pix. Really want to see my submarine pix (whoever got em)!!

I'd like to say a BIG thanks to PP... we had an awesome group, perfect size, and awesome trail leaders on and off the trail!!! Would love to wheel with ya'll again!

here's my Rubicon blog that I posted....

"The drive up there is beautiful... Kate and I took the back roads (395 into the mountains). Camped out right near Tahoe. Then we met up with a few JKO guys and Poly Performance guys. The trail is awesome!!! On the first day we ran the trail to buck island (or something like that). Ran up the wall on big sluice - which reminded me a lot of Moab. Then we ran Old Sluice - IMO the most fun obstacle on the con and were I earned the nickname "Crazy Ivan" from the guys. At one section it gets Extremely offcamber!! I was with two VERY built TJ's and a JK on 40s. The drivers all looked scared when I was watching them do an offcamber part... And I'm thinking it's nothing... Then I get on the part and I though I'm Def. Going over!!!! But we made it! Then on the second day we had a short run to Rubicon springs. What a beautiful spot! Kate was swimming and sun-bathing the entire day. So I snuck off with my JK while she wasn't watching and went to look for some deep water!.... Finally got my New JK into deep water.... and got stuck in the water!!! While I was waiting for someone to winch me out the JK felt like it was sinking a bit... and the water was already at the level of my bestop element doors... most of th shifter was underwater.... and water is still in my headlights. But I got out.... and didn't back down.... I decided to drive fast through the water and made splashes 20-25 feet high!!!.... that was awesome!... and my JK was named "Red October" by the guys. Came back to Camp and had Kate get upset at me for getting all the seats totally wet (and all the Marlboro's since the center dash was completely under water)! The third day was fun going up Eldorado... not too challanging but some pucker factor - your doing technical obstacles and one foot from your passanger tire is a 70 degree hill drop! Then the drive home.... I have the bestop element doors (they are almost as good as the stock halfs)... It was funny... We took mountain passes to 395 from tahoe to Claremont. The door uppers and the bestop safari top were all packed in the trunk.... As we were driving through the mountains it started to drizzle a bit.. We thought "not a big deal... It'll pass".... Then it started pouring!! We decided to keep driving because we'll get more wet and cold by stopping to put the uppers and top on.... Figuring we'll drive past the weather faster then taking time to stop. Then it dropped from 70 degrees to 50 fast and it started HAILING!!! Katy was in the passenger seat with a towel over her head and I'm trying to drive fast to pass the hail... And I'm wiping the inside of my windshield every ten seconds... The damn hail hurt!... but hey, it's a Jeep thing! "

the few pix that we took....

The JK's....

the guys....

the girls ...

Please meeting you Crazy Ivan! Your Jeep was very impressive in the Old Sluice.

It was great meeting everyone. A special thanks from Polyperformance for letting me borrow the 2D JK for the run.
Here is a shot of the "Red October" playing at Rubicon Springs...
