MALL CRAWLIN ARIZONA – a Blast from the Past with MOBY & EVO1
There are a ton of wheeling trips that Cindy and I do every year and for a myriad of reasons, we never get around to making them into a video. Some, we just don’t bother filming, others end up getting sidelined by bigger and better projects but every now and then, we stumble across an old photo or get talking to a friend about a specific trip and that gets us wondering, why didn’t we ever make a video out of it? Well, it took some deep digging through the archives to make this possible but today, you’re gonna get see one of those trips – a weekend trip we did about 10 years ago, out in Arizona and with our good friends Mel and Lisa from EVO. I should note that this was way back before anyone was thinking about a Jeep JL Wrangler, let alone a JT Gladiator and back when JK Wranglers were still all the rage. In fact, at the time, Moby was still rockin a 3.8L V6 and a 6-speed manual transmission and EVO1 was still a glorified orange Sahara. Also, while coilovers are pretty common place today, there was a time when seeing them on a daily driven Wrangler was still kind of a new idea. It was guys like Mel who helped to change all that and through the kind of extensive testing you’ll get to see on this video. We hope you enjoy.
