Mapping Crew - California
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. This 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." But IT isn't Josh's only talent. He also has a very extensive background in Off-Road Marking, Mechanical Engineering, Automotive Tech, and Fabrications.
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.
The vehicle he drives the most is a 2001 Jeep Wrangler TJ with a 4.0, 33's ProComp Mud Terrain, and 4 inch ProComp lift. This Jeep does have open diffs which is something Josh is 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.
His other jeep which is currently in a frame up restoration is his 79 CJ 7 with a 4.0 Stroker (4.7), 37's BFG's, Dana 60 HD Front, 14 Bolt Rear, Detroit's, T18, Atlas, Custom Built 4 link and 5 link Suspension, 18" Coil Overs, 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.
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.
