What Does Whiskey + Wheeling Equal? The RockAuto Xtreme Off Road Adventure!
October 4th, 2016
The crew is back from the RockAuto Xtreme Off-Road Adventure, and they told us all about it. Ian Johnson, along with 6 sponsors and friends, took their Jeeps over 300 miles to hit 4 off-road parks and 3 whiskey distilleries across Tennessee. Although it rained (actually downpoured) they made the best of it and wheeled hard anyway! Who lets a little mud stop them?
The best part about the trails they hit is that they were so close together, they barely had to drive the interstate. Back roads all the way. It also doesn't hurt that Tennessee has enough whiskey distilleries to visit one after each day at an off road park! Every sponsor that went on the trip had its parts in the RockAuto giveaway Jeep...from batteries to suspension to radios! There was a variety of Jeeps on the ride, from JKs to Daystar's custom 1941 "Bootlegger".
Ian reveals just how the giveaway Jeep held up on the trail and how he liked breaking it in! Aside from LOTS of mud, it sounds like it went well. The crew was able to check off everything on their list: whiskey history, awesome trails, and lots of fun.
The Xtreme Off Road shop built RockAuto.com Adventure Jeep specifically for this adventure and giveaway. RockAuto cofounder Tom Taylor and our own Ian Johnson will join us this weekend on PowerNation to talk about the build of this LJ with a half-cab conversion, 40” tires, Hemi conversion to name a few mods, including parts from Rusty's Off Road, Optima Battery, Rugged Radios, Daystar, and Paramount Automotive. Basically it's a street-able, hardcore throw down off road rig that you can win! Check it out this weekend on SPIKE. To enter go to www.rockauto.com or http://www.powernationtv.com/giveaways
