    VIDEO : KANE CREEK - Moab Easter Jeep Safari Fun Run with EVO

    While most of our time at the 2019 Moab Easter Jeep Safari was spent covering the badass EVO Gladiator pickup truck, by the end of the week, it had to be parked in the arena and put on display for the show. Needless to say, our last day in the promised land would still be spent out on the trail and with our good friends from EVO, only this time, they would be wheeling their Sting Gray SEMA JL Wrangler and iconic Stars & Stripes JL Wrangler that was featured in the 2018 JLX. For our final run, we decided to take on a fun trail that we always enjoy if only for how scenic it is and that would be, Kane Creek. We hope you enjoy.



    A BIG THANKS needs to go out to our good friends Tony and Steph and Moochie for joining us on this epic trip to Moab and for helping to make it so much fun.

    Awesome video! I guess Iíve never thought about the steel fenders buckling the quarter. Thats what happens when I look at stuff as being cool but not functional. Lol. Thank you for pointing that out in the video.

    Not just the quarter panels, I've seen it totally jack up the front as well. It is the reason why to this day, we still run trimmed factory fenders on Moby. As you can see in this video, factory flares will crush and bend and in some cases, tear off but they will not damage the body the way hard steel and even aluminum fenders WILL.

    Thanks for posting this. Thatís a trail I wanted to do when I was in Moab a few weeks ago, but didnít have time. Itís on the list for Moab 2020.

    Out of curiosity, what tire pressure do you typically run in Moab?

    Looks like a great time on another amazing Moab trail. When we were there a few weeks ago, some locals talked us out of Kane Creek due to pinstriping brush. I guess we shouldn't have listed to them. We still had a blast on other trails, and there's always next time.

    Thanks for sharing!

    It's a fun one and you'll definitely have to run it the next time you're out there.

    Regarding tire pressure, I dunno - maybe 14 psi or there about. The slickrock has so much traction, I rarely feel the need to go lower and really, the less air you run, the less height you have. In something like a 4-door, it's nice to have as much break over angles as possible especially being that so much of Moab is big ledges.

    LOL - there's definitely a lot of pin striping but it's all well worth it to me.

    It's a fun one for sure and yes, you really need to get out there sometime sooner than later.

ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
