Polaris RZR XP 900s take on the Rubicon UTV Challenge

Monday, October 29th, 2012

RubiconChallenge Oct2012 006 220x146 Polaris RZR XP 900s take on the Rubicon UTV ChallengeI have been riding here since the early 1990s.  First in a Jeep CJ7 that was never complete.  I was always looking for something new to make the trail easier or more comfortable. Then in 1998 I bought a Jeep TJ.  The new Jeep with a lift kit and 33 inch tires was more capable than my 1977 CJ7 that had thousands invested to make it more trail worthy. But I still added a long list of goodies to the new TJ. Something about the trail has always captured my intrigue and made me want to build vehicles capable of taking on the trail without lots of damage.

It is perhaps the best known off-roading trail in the world. The Rubicon Trail located in Northern California is world famous among 4×4 fans. The trail was established in the late 1800′s as a stage coach route between Georgetown and Lake Tahoe mainly to serve two resort hotels at Wentworth Springs and Rubicon Springs. After the hotels went out of business and the road deteriorated it was picked as home for the first Jeepers Jamboree in 1953. Since then it has gained international recognition and is considered the “Granddaddy” of all four-wheel trails – a 10 on most scales. The Rubicon Trail is actually an unmaintained county right of way – the Rubicon/McKinney Road. Read More→
