New Banner Picture -

I like the new banner photo but I noticed the yellow Jeep is towing the second Jeep. What I find strange is the fact that there appears to be no driver in the Jeep being towed. A passenger but no driver, that is odd. Just my observation.

Probably had to remove the driver because they were recognizable.. magazines sometimes do this too.

I realized after studying this a bit more that it must have been flopped since the differential is also on the wrong side of the axle. Before I could post this you clarified for us. Thank you schnutzy for the shot. That sure does look like Ocotillo to me as well.

just to clarify, i did not take the pictures. wish i did, but i was on the opposite coast while that run was going on. the one with the jeep in tow was posted by another member on the forum(who owns the yellow rubicon in the pic) and the driveway shot, well hopefully Josh wont mind that i borrowed that.

ive got no clue. i dont think it was some big organized thing. like the meet and greet is. if i remember correctly, Josh was just out that way and wanted to go wheeling, so he got in touch with people in that area.

I thought the yellow one was being pushed with a strap by the blue one!
It should have been easy to tell that the pic was reversed as in the pic north is to the left and in that area north has always been to the right.
