Part 3 of RUBICON : A Legendary Jeep Trail & Off-Road Adventure is the last chapter in a 3 part series that was originally made as a single half hour long video. In this final episode, we kick start our morning at the crack of dawn and with a welder in hand. Once repairs are made to Trail Bud's broken front axle housing, we head over to the cool waters of Rubicon Springs and spend some time cleaning up and having some fun. Packed up and ready to roll again, we slowly climb our way up the last real challenge on the Rubicon Trail - Cadillac Hill. At the top, we take in the awesome view, pose for pictures, assess the condition of our Jeeps and then make our way back to civilization down in South Lake Tahoe.

Crossing through the El Dorado National Forest up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Rubicon Trail is truly one of the most beautiful ones I've been on, bar none. Of course, its unrelenting 22 miles of boulders that need to be crawled, steep ledges that need to be climbed, narrow trees that need to be squeezed between, deep muddy water crossings that need to be forded and tippy off camber terrain that needs to be carefully negotiated is ultimately what makes the Rubicon Trail so legendary and famous around the world.

More than just a Jeep, it's a way of life!

I will never forget the Rubicon!!  After my friend's CJ7 shutdown we made it all the way to Cadillac Hill in my ZJ, but then couldn't make it up and moved out of the way only to watch a Wagoneer flip over with his wife and 2 kids inside.  We hooked his winch to a tree to keep them from sliding down the rocks, then used a high jack and chains to flip the Wagoneer back over so they could repair the front drive shaft.  We ran out of daylight so we back tracked, back through Rubicon Springs, got an electric fuel pump from someone, camped, hit the trail first light in the ZJ and made it back to the CJ, got it running, almost made it out then the ZJ front axle broke!  Paid a rock buggy $100 to tow me out but he drug me over stuff that caused more damage.

I have noticed you always have really good video cuts. Primarily cinematography by trade, or are you a mechanic?

Honestly,  Who could give this video a thumbs down?  it is simply amazing.  Not only the courageous drivers who navigated their vehicles through that impossible terrain but also to all of the camera operators and editor.  I really liked how they detailed the upgrades on each of the jeeps.  Super Job!!
