Grizz was the high point of the trip. He did Little Sluice with just one roll bar strap, to safeguard a flop, and one winch pull at the last 5-7 yards. It was sweet!!!!

Looks like you all had a great run.

Nice guys!
It would have been fun to trek along with my Rubi. Im DeeJaying weddings more these summer months and I would have to take time off my day job.
I love DeeJaying so I wouldnt take time away from that.

DJAmazonnnn mixing live from the rubicon, ladies drink free till midnight!!!!

In 2009 a crack commando wheelin' unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the South Florida underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as wheelers of fortune. If you have a problem. If no one else can help. And if you can find them. Maybe you can wheel with The 50/50 Off-Road Team.
