A group of guys from have organized a Veterans Jeep rally in Big Bear, California that will take place on May 3-5 to help raise funds for the Wounded Warriors Project. The guys have already signed up about 30 rigs, representing every branch of service with veterans from Vietnam, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom. The guys tell us that some of the trails that they will run are Onyx Summit, Gold Mountain trail, Holcomb Creek and possibly the John Bull trail. There will also be a run to Pontiac Sluice/Heartbreak Ridge to pay respects to a fallen U.S. Marine, Major Rowe, who payed the ultimate sacrifice during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2004. Major Rowe was an avid wheeler and was a member of the So-Cal Broncos club. Some of the companies that have already stepped up to help support our troops and are donating items to the raffle to raise money for the Wounded Warriors Project are, Teraflex, Poison Spyder, and ARB, just to name a few. The event is open to anyone who wants to show their support for the military.  Each raffle ticket is $20 and will enter you for a chance to win a 25 percent off gift certificate from ARB, a set of GenRight Offroad hood louvers, and GenRight Offroad LED marker lights.  All proceeds will go directly to the Wounded Warrior Project. The run is open to anyone that wants to come out and do some wheeling for a good cause. There are no minimum donations and every little bit helps. If you want to join the Wrangler Forum members on this epic run, they will be meeting at Hanna Flats Campground in the San Bernardino National Forest on May 3-5.  For more information on how to donate to a great cause, please visit: or contact: Joe Johnson,  Trail Run Organizer
