    LOBSTAH QUEST Part 2 : JL/JT Experience - Check In & Wheeling NORA New York

    After spending the better part of 4 days on the road and covering almost 3,000 miles along the way, Cindy and I finally made it out to Newburgh, New York, the starting point of Lobster Quest - the Nitto JL/JT Experience presented by KMC Wheels! As always, the first day was a fun one being that we got hook up with old friends and make some new ones as well and being that this was the year of the all new Jeep JT Gladiator, it was great to see PSC, Skyjacker, Drixtin and even Randy showing up with theirs. Better still, most of these trucks were running EVO suspension systems, one had a Hellcat HEMI under the hood and all were running Dana Ultimate UD60 axles pushing 40" tires. Of course, being that we were in Newburgh and staying at a hotel right next to the world famous Orange County Choppers, that's where we got to finish up our day and complete with tour of their facility and dinner as well.

    The first official day of Lobster Quest took us out to Ellenville, New York and to an off-road park known as, Northeast Off-Road Adventures or NORA for short. I should note that this is a private park that does require a fee to use but it is one that offers 4WD training, driving tours and event programs on it's 75 acres of trails. Given the limited amount of off-road options available in the New York area, it really is awesome that the good people at NORA have created this place for people to use. For our purposes, we were truly grateful that they would allow us to take on their trails, soak in the beauty and shake down our Jeep JT Gladiators (most for the very first time) and JL Wranglers on the fun obstacles they had.

    We hope you enjoy watching all the fun we had and hope you'll check back soon for more.

    Pretty rad... I can see why those east coasters are into rock bouncers.

    Looks like a very fun time. Traction seems different out there. Definitely agree that the gladiator is crazy comfortable for long highway stretches. At 11:18ish, how are you able to get a rear camera view while still moving forward? That would be way beneficial if we can do it in ours.

    Do the speed bumps at the mall count as crawlin?

    I forget exactly how, but turning on the rear view camera while going forward is an option you select on the radio. Unfortunately the JL only has the rear camera unless you do an aftermarket upgrade. You get both cameras in the JT.

    Breakfast is just so much better when there is a new Wayalife video up on YouTube to watch. And yes, by far the best video of driving through flyover country I have seen yet.
