Show & tell - wk2 photos off roading "proof"

COME ON it is time to put up or shut up . . . where's the beef ? Where are those great family camping in the wilderness pictures? RV parks & electrical/water hookups don't count! Camping on the beach, maybe, but in the woods by a river or lake or in the desert or backroads (dirt) of any Public Lands Wilderness or National Park primitive campsite will do ! ! ! Some have "talk some" of your WK2 Summits & Overlands going "where no man has gone before" (sorry Star Trek fans).
This could be a Super "Show & Tell" Time, and just think of all the FREE publicity for JEEP (FCA US) ?
I'm seeing a scene in my mind . . . it's me with my campsite fire aglow near sunset across & up river from me . . . walking back toward the 4x4 Laredo which secures the fire from the prevailing breezes. In hand one 14 inch hatchery rainbow for a late dinner. Coffee will soon be perking . . . it's all so clear (in my mind).
SO what do ya say . . . who's first ?
ps; mine will have to wait as I am presently without digital ability or vehicle and the 2017 Laredo I want is not yet available to buy (come July/Aug I hope?).

No actual campsite pics but that's because for me getting there is the fun part

Re: Show & tell - wk2 photos off roading "proof"

Not quite hardcore off roading yet, but it was a snowy dirt road with steep hills . I just haven't made it up to the hills yet for the real stuff, but I will soon enough.

Re: Show & tell - wk2 photos off roading "proof"

There are many threads here showing JGC off-road including some very challenging situations...

Re: Show & tell - wk2 photos off roading "proof"

There's a dude down in South America who's posted a number of threads that included things I wouldn't even think of trying, even though I know my JGC can do them...

Re: Show & tell - wk2 photos off roading "proof"

The WK2 platform is definitely capable. Here's a video I found a while back ago of a bone stock 2014 WK2 taking on the notorious Hell's Gate in Moab. I've been there when I had my ZJ and they recommended I not try it since I did not have a front locking diff. After seeing some other videos of vehicles flipping, I listened to them and just watched the others

Did you even bother searching? First off there's a dedicated forum for that. Most likely you find the evidence there. Second, some of us have already opened threads with our off road exploits.

I know I don't mind an additional forum or two of off-roading pics. Duplication also makes it easier to find information, albeit in separate locations. Researching duplicate threads always takes some time. Great pics! Keep em coming. Too bad there are no trails in WI - WTF!?!

Re: Show & tell - wk2 photos off roading "proof"

Next weekend I'm heading to New Mexico to visit the Trinity Site, which they open up two days per year for visits. Then we're heading over to tour the VLA, then after that I'm planning on driving up to the top of Mt. Withington in Cibola National Forest. I'll get some shots along the way.
