    Shortly after buying my Cherokee XJ, I found out about this class on facebook and signed up. I was able to learn about my Jeep and gradually build up my skills on various obstacles. By the end, I was surprised that I was driving over stuff that I thought was impossible at the beginning of the class.

    I highly recommend it - especially for new 4x4 owners.

    I first met TJ and Crystal at their first skills 101 class a few years back. They had a great way of explaining the basics of off roasting and I could tell they have a lot of experience under their belt. Their character was shown when my tow rig broke down at the event and they were crawling around in the dirt with me trying to figure out what went wrong. Rather than go wheeling with others in the class they stuck with the broken rig and live by the motto of no man left behind. Since the skills class I have interacted with them through their Facebook group and run several trails with them in Moab and the Salt Lake City area. They are amazing and a hoot to go out with. I always know I will be taken care of if I am ever in trouble and they help create and foster as safe of an environment as possible while out wheeling. I have had several moments with large amounts of pucker factor while wheeling with them, but seeing how calm they are while guiding me through an obstacle has a very reassuring effect and helps grow confidence quickly. There is one skill in particular they taught during the skills class that has gotten me out of a few tricky situations that were close to a roll over. If it wasn’t for them there is a good chance I would have already been on my lid. I will always jump at the opportunity to wheel with the double dominators. It’s not only they skills that they bring with them to the trail, but their attitude and energy. It’s difficult to describe but if everyone on the trail was even a little more like them, the off road community would be a much better place.
    Last year at Easter Jeep Safari I ran metal masher for the first time. At the first major obstacle I almost went over backwards on a ledge. Everything probably would have been ok if I didn’t do anything, with one of the skills taught in the double dominators skills 101 class I was able to make sure I didn’t go over backwards. It’s a skill I have used several times on different trails as my front end gets light or comes off the ground. I know someday it will actually keep me from going over, if it hasn’t already. The cost of the skills 101 class is well worth it. It has paid for itself in repair costs alone, but I also made some of my closest wheeling buddies in that class.

    This class is definitely a game changer for someone who desires to know how to trail ride safely. It is amazing the things they explicitly taught in a thought out process to systemically take you from learning the parts of your jeep to keep you and the jeep in one piece to safety in getting your self out of a situation that may cause damage and then taking you on a mini training trail that is geared towards you and your comfort level. On this mini training trail TJ will guide you and push you a little each time to help you feel confident with being off camber and facing obstacles with the knowledge of things you need to be looking for to take care of your jeep and you!
    These two are amazing people with so much knowledge to share! I have loved getting to know them! They continue to impress me with all the knowledge they know and share. Just today one of my students I taught last year came up to my husbands jeep and was like what is this?? And instead of saying I have no clue…. I was able to take the time to share my new found knowledge and share it with this little kid.
    I will be forever thankful for these guys!
    I recommend this course to all! Whether you are new to your jeep you have been riding a few years to many years. These guys will help you safely get to the level you want to be at!

    TJ and Crystal, are amazing! I was beyond scared to off road on the trails. Tho, I was determined. They gave me the confidence in myself to trust my Jeep. TJ, was so calm in directing my panic self. I have highly recommend this team to guide you through any trail.
