    John Bull Dec 28th

    I am coming down from Vegas Tonight and staying in Big Bear. I want to do John Bull and dont want to go at it alone. Anyone up for doing this trail?? I have a 2012 JKU no lockers with 3.5" Lift with 35s and Rock Sliders. Let me know if you want to go.
    Thank you.

    I did this trail alone once , at night ! I really don't recommend it . I had forgotten how long it took and started very late in the afternoon . I also broke an upper front control arm . I never figured out how it broke . All in all , when looking back , it was one of the best and most interesting trips I've been on .

    Dam, I would go but I have my sons 4th birthday tomorrow. You'll most like nit be alone on JB, however I do not recommend doing it alone unless you have done it before a few times.

    I just ran John Bull today and I'm sorry to say its got quite a bit of snow on it and is going to be real hard for ya with no lockers. I'm on 37"s and had a hard time, I'm not saying its in passable but it is a tuff ride. I'm going to have to replace my track bar after today's fun,
    I would look into Gold Mtn, we ran that today too, and it was a blast.

    Post up after you do the run tomorrow. I'm going out with a few jeeps next Saturday so I'm curious as to how it works out for you.

    I am here now at my cabin in Big Bear. I know that usual meet place for guys wanting to go out or solo, is the Vons Starbucks parking lot, On big bear blvd. at 10 am. Think they discuss where everyone wants to go and head out. I would go tomorrow but supposed to go next saturday with other group. Also have family here etc.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
