    WA: PNW4WDA Trail Jam 2019 7/11-7/14

    Just a heads up for the NW folks. This is a fun event that some of you may be interested in!

    Located just west of Naches, WA.

    I am not affiliated with the PNW4WDA but I have been to this event the last few years.

    Trails for anything from a stock Jeeps to full builds.

    How does the JK perform with all the tight trails and trees. I was under the impression that trail width restrictions prohibited JK use of many of the trails. Your first hand experience is appreciated.

    I just finished building my JK so I haven't had it over there yet.

    I can tell you that there have been many JKU's on the trails over there in the past years.

    The rules show width restrictions on a few trails. https://www.pnw4wda.org/trail_descriptions.php

    I have a friend who has a JKU on 40's that is about 86" wide and was able to do everything but Rim Rock and Little Rattlesnake. I have done Rim Rock in a TJ on 35's and it was tight! Not sure I would want to take my JKU there.

    I am at 88" wide so we will see how it goes!

    While I have not done the PNW4WDA event in Naches I did wheel in Rim Rock in my TJ as well and it is tight. Are the areas where JKU fit very interesting like Rim Rock. Any details would be helpful. Thanks!

    Each trail over there has something to offer. Most have awesome views. Some have harder spots. Some have lots of logging roads.

    Rim Rock is by far the most fun to wheel. It is also the tightest and most dangerous. Because of that they really restrict who can go. Cage is required. F/R lockers required. No exceptions anymore. I think I was the last to get by with the factory cage.

    Next up was Rocky Saddle. Some good hill climbs. I am having trouble remembering if wide JKU's fit. I think they did. If it is wet lockers are required.

    Naches trail is a good one. Some climbs and good views.

    Kaner/Quarts and Shoestring/Kaner share some of the same trail sections. Good views and some tight spots to maneuver through.

    Yep! Got a good test in this week at Sand Hollow.

    I will be at trail Jamboree but I got talked into hosting some trails.

    The trails I will be hosting are not anything really exciting.

    Get signed up for trails like Rocky Saddle, Naches trail, Shoestring Kaner, Kaner Quarts, etc. Those are the fun ones.

    Funny Rocks and Moon Rocks are neat as well. But a short day.

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.
