Joshua Noesser grew up in Southern California but has lived in different parts of the country during his young adult life. Josh was first turned to four wheeling when he road with one of his friends dad up Surprise Canyon in the Panamint Valley at age14. After nearly 3 different roll overs later and a half dozen intense waterfalls, Josh was hooked. At 16 he purchased his first Jeep a CJ 7 and by 17 was putting his first locker in it. Currently, Josh is the owner and CEO of Nybble, an IT Solutions Company based in Orange County, California. Nybble isn't your normal IT company where everyone stays in and plays video games. Nybble's average company trip is out on the trails since a good amount of his staff enjoy wheeling too. As Josh likes to say, he offers the only IT Company with the ability to provide services in extreme locations. "If you want a server at the top of The Hammers, we will take care of that for you." Today you can find Josh out on the trail behind the wheel in one of his three different off-road vehicles. See the vehicles below for more information. If you ever run into Josh, please say high, he is a very friendly person and is always happy to have a new person join the group.

My Garage (3)

Lift Size: 4"
Tire Size: 35"
The vehicle he drives the most is a 2001 Jeep Wrangler TJ with a 4.0, 35's Falken Mud Terrain, and 4-inch ProComp lift. This Jeep does have open diffs which is something that Josh really enjoys. Josh was driving fully locked up vehicles so long that driving the open vehicle is adding the extra challenge and bring a whole new life to some of the older trails.

Lift Size: 4.5"
Tire Size: 38"
His other jeep which is currently in testing and being used on trail. This is a 79 CJ 7 with a 4.0 Stroker (4.7), 38's falken's, Raceline Beadlocks, Dana 60 HD Front, 14 Bolt Rear, Detroit's, NV4500, Atlas, Custom Built 4 link and 3 link Suspension, 18" Coil Overs, Spuderwebshade, custom belly armor, and the list goes on. Before all the cool toys were added this Jeep, Josh has successfully either created or traversed almost every trail in Southern California.

Lift Size: Stock
Tire Size: 35"
As for the last vehicle, it is a 2002 Ford F250 Diesel 4x4 CrewCab. It might not be a rock crawler but Josh does use this vehicle for trails rating 1-4 and will tow his jeeps through trails up to a 4 rating to get to campsites that are very remote. He did recently replace the rims with 20" Raceline Wheels and Falken A/T tires.

(within last 6 months)
The Bradshaw Trail (02/19/2020)
Cool trail, extremely easy. There is a lot of cool stuff out there to explore. The road itself was super easy, as in able to do 40+mph most of the time. I want to go back and do it again...
Brooklyn Mine - Joshua Tree (01/26/2020)
Just ran out there for the day. I love this trail. I think i might go back in march and camp.
SR2013 - Red Canyon Trail (01/26/2020)
Ran the canyon really quick thinking about finding a place to camp. Long story short, we kept going but I so want to go camp there. Might help back in April.
1N09 - City Creek (01/12/2020)
Received an update that the full trail is open. Enjoy!!!
Sandstone Canyon (12/05/2019)
Ran the trail well into the rock crawling part. The trail is clear but the obstacles at 10 and 11 are back. This will be a problem for anyone that has no lift. Also, long wheelbase will struggle through this spot. On a fun note, I was able to push through the wash at the large waterfall. Based on what I saw, I believe I might have been the first person to do that since the landslide. #FalkenTires #JeepAdventures #Raceline
