    Project-JK Bullfrog Jeep Trail - Cougar Buttes

    Located near the town of Lucerne, CA, the Bullfrog Jeep Trail is one of the newest additions to the Johnson Valley area and one of the most scenic. Although it is one of the easiest trails in the valley, it is still rated "difficult" and depending on the lines you take, it really is all that and more.

    Working its way through and around a well known outcrop of boulders called the Cougar Buttes, Bullfrog offers a myriad of challenges throughout the length of the trail and they come one right after the other. The rocks and ledges are formidable and the more flex you have, the easier it will be to negotiate this trail. Of course, a locker or two wouldn't hurt to have and aside from tow hooks front and rear, I'd have to say that rocker guards are a must here. When we ran this trail, one of the guys in our group showed up in a stock 2-Door Jeep JK Wranger X and with stock street tires. Although he did need some help getting up and over some of the biggest obstacles, he made his way through the trail just fine. Granted, he did have heavy duty aftermarket front and rear bumpers and a set of good rocker guards and all did their job well.

    I love going through old videos here. That looks like a stock 2 door! Fun times.

    WOW, look at Moby's tiny little axles! Really makes you appreciate how long it actually took to get him to where he is today. A great example of a real world build that takes time, just like the rest of us have to do.
    Anybody who thinks they can't wheel as they build over the years should really watch this.

    LOL!! Yeah, this video is a blast from the past and contrary to what so many people seem to think, Moby was NOT built up over night. We literally went through 1 front locker, 2 rear lockers, 1 front axle, 1 rear Rubicon axle and 1 Sahara axle before he started running ProRocks

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.
