JKX 2020 – Rocotillo Rapids & Habanero Falls New Mexico / PART 1
For the first time in almost 20 years, Cindy and I did not get to spend the first week of November in Las Vegas, Nevada, like we always do and to cover all the cool new parts, accessories, wheels and tires being made for the Jeep JL Wrangler and JT Gladiator. I am of course talking about the world famous SEMA Show and just like everything else in this crazy dumpster fire of a year, the show got cancelled. Fortunately, not all was lost and all thanks to Nitto as they decided to hold their 10th Annual JK-Experience on that week instead. And, as luck would have it, we were invited to join in on the fun! Presented by KMC Wheels, this awesome adventure would start in Las Cruces, New Mexico and take us all the way to Barstow, California almost 800 miles to the west and loosely following the original route of the very first JK-Experience.
In this first of a 3 part series, you’ll get to see us put our Jeeps to the test in the canyons and mountains surrounding Las Cruces, New Mexico. In fact, our very first day would be a shakedown run up in the Robledo Mountains and in an area known as the Prehistoric Trackways. This is where big rocks and steep ledges can be found on trails such as Rocotillo Rapids and Habanero Falls. We hope you enjoy.
