EJS Photos
If a picture is worth a thousand words, these five photos from previous Easter Jeep Safari events should speak volumes about this incredible event.

Toyota Rock Crawler
Just because she’s got a few dents doesn’t mean she’s not a capable rock crawler.  This Toyota Rock Crawler probably has story to go along with every one of them.

Rock Bouncer Rejected
Too much horsepower can come back to bite you if you can’t keep it under control.  Clearly that was this guy’s problem, and it caused his rock bouncer to go for a swim. Check out the carnage.

Rock Crawling Fail or Save
This rock crawler is in over his head and cruising for a bruising. Check out the video to see how it ends up.

Reverse Rock Crawling
Pretty much anyone can pop it in 4 LOW and crawl up an obstacle, right? How about doing it in reverse? When this guy is done giving a clinic, he throws it in reverse and rock crawls like it’s no big deal.

KOH 2017 Highlights
The dust has hardly settled from King of the Hammers 2017 and this years event certainly didn’t disappoint. There are lots of race reports and recaps floating around, but this is a really well done video on the Ultra4 portion of the event.

BFGoodrich-Lovell-Ladies-Network-2-20-2017
MESA, AZ:
Everyday from 9-11 a.m. the Ladies of Hammertown gathered at the 4 Wheel Parts booth for a Ladies Offroad Social with coffee, cocoa, tea, water and snacks for a casual environment to talk and get to know each other. In addition to the daily socials, there were two hands-on experiences that ladies could participate in.

On Tuesday afternoon over 60 Ladies gathered to try their hand at welding at the Ladies Offroad Welding Experience hosted by ESAB Welding & Cutting, and on Wednesday Ladies gathered at the BFGoodrich Tires Garage for the Ladies Offroad Tire & Winch Experience to learn how to change a tire from Brad Lovell and work a winch line with WARN.  At each event the ladies were entered into immediate drawings including I’m Not Just a Girl shirts, ESAB Welding Helmets, BFGoodrich Tires Gloves and more.  They were also entered into the week-long drawing for the Black Forest Gear $649 Fridge/Freezer and Kicker $199 Amphitheater.

Brothers Brad & Roger Lovell have become back to back champions of the King of the Hammers EMC race in what was a relatively smooth run with only minor issues. The pair qualified 8th after a huge boulder was dislodged causing a fair amount of struggle on a rocky climb. What was most important, however was that the team was near the front of an enormous 130 car field.

As the sun painted the clouds with red and orange over Hammertown, the 11th annual Nitto King of the Hammers powered by Optima Batteries came to life with the low rumble of V8 engines. Race cars had to be staged by 6:30 a.m. for an 8:00 a.m. start. Pit crews scattered to one of three remote pits along race course as the cars lined up in staging areas. Drivers chatted and joked about the adventure that was about to commence as their navigators ensured the race course and notes were on their navigation systems.
