Straddle, Air, and more Air

It is not always easy to straddle a deep terrain, catch air, or even stay on all fours when you want to. Check out these next three shots from the 2006 photo contest! Have you ever found yourself in any of these positions in your Jeep?

He is running 35″ tires, an 8.8 with Detroits and a hand throttle he should have used!!!” Picture was taken on ‘Politician trail’ at TMTC’s Barnwell Mountain in Gilmer, TX.

  1. Those are way rad. The first one looked kinda scary, the second flat out fun and I’m still trying to figure out how the third one got in that position. I guess you had to be there. Too bad they aren’t clips instead of photos.


  2. I have not been fortunate enough to have experienced the likes of these 3 but I’ve only been Jeeping for a little over a year. I’ve learned a lot and tried a lot and I know there is so much more just waiting for me to find it. And I will, make no mistake about that. Those are some totally awesome pictures and inspiring too. Thanks for sharing them.
