The Rubicon has a reputation for being one of the most iconic Jeep trails in the world and for a reason - It’s crazy beautiful and of course, it has some of the most challenging and non stop rock crawling fun that you can find anywhere. In this second, of our 2 part series highlighting, the Other Rubicon, you’ll get to see us take on the Little Sluice, the Old Sluice or True Sluice, the Big Sluice and more of the optional lines and obstacles that you can find all along the way and to the very end of the trail. We hope you enjoy.

I forgot how much water there used to be in the trail. Awesome second part! Thanks for digging this out of the archives.
Good time for sure and we're so happy that we got around to making this into a video. As far as water goes, yeah, there were a few years in there where there was a ton of it on the trail.

Great series! Just got caught up on both parts and looks like it was an absolute blast! I'm sad to say and admit I have yet to make it up to the Rubicon Trail. Definitely a bummer as some of it is not the same anymore :( But great videos as always! Doug gave her hell on that rock! lol (we've all been there Doug)

Awesome second part! Looks like a ton of fun and relaxation. I’m going to have to try that cheese and pepperoncini. Looks interesting… maybe after a few beers though. 😂

Awesome second part! Some cool spots of the rubicon you don’t normally see and it was fun to watch “new” obstacles!

I too forgot that moby was on toyos for a bit. Went back to our Moab trip to see that he was. Was this 2015?
 
The frame on wranglers must be one of the strongest ever made. It is unbelievable that they dont get big dents on the frame rails. One of my friends had a defender and if you hit the frame like you guys do all the time the result where a huge dent. Gotta love wranglers. Awesome wheeling!

Got to watch the second part last night. I have wanted to run the rubicon since I got a jeep, but now even more so! That looked like so much fun and the view at the end was great! Thanks for posting Eddie!

"You really need front lockers" "Driver, No OTHER driver" "Front Lockers...."

and then my favorite "Squeeze, insert in bottom, fill it up"


Great vids and looks like great people.

Thanks for sharing your awesome times.

The Turtle had me Rollin. Lol. Can't wait to Run that Trail... Even though Adam got it done on 35's so "gracefully", I think I'd want to be on 37's. Awesome Video!
35's on a 2-door is like 37's on a 4-door. Glad you enjoyed the video and seeing the turtle 😁

Well, when you do finally make it out, I hope that we can join you (y)

Awesome setup you have there too :D

LOL - it's surprisingly good stuff 🤪

Toyo MT's used to be our go to tire. They may not hook up as well as Trail Grapplers on the rocks but they're a great all around tire that are super street friendly and with near bulletproof sidewalls. Or at least, from what we have seen.

The JK frame is a HUGE improvement over the TJ and I would argue, stronger than the JL. They really can take a beating.
Nice one!!
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it :)
That was great! I’ve not run the Rubicon so it’s nice to run it vicariously through your vids! Thanks!
Well, I hope that when you do get around to running it, we can be there to join in on the fun :)
