Jim and a few of his local buddies have formed a four-wheel-drive club named Damage Inc. Together, their trail adventures have turned over a few rocks and a few of their vehicles as well. More often than not you'll find the undercarriage of Jim's J10 covered with a fresh coat of mud from a weekend of dirty mishaps. Thanks for the images, Jim; we always love seeing people playing hard off-road.

"This bronco is simply amazing!"
Thank you for the images and letter, Eli. It is nice to see someone with so much passion for their vehicle and for hitting the dirt. We really loved the form and function of this Bronco and hope that we will see it on the trails some day. The photography work in the pictures is great; however, next time, be sure to show us how well those big tires work. Be safe and have fun out there.
