Finally got to Johnson valley

Spend Friday night and half of Saturday. Saw backdoor and chocolate thunder. For those who haven't heard of those runs you might want to YouTube those. Tried to run claw hammer without my front locked yet installed. Not gonna lie it got too tough. Gonna heard back when it's a little cooler and I have a front locker. A little Johnson valley tattoo on my passenger rear flare and an awesome scratch right thru my off road sticker. Bent up my 1/4 ATO skid plate. They held up fine but got scratched to s@*#. Anyway as monkeyproof will testify easily the hardest wheelin' anywhere.

The Hammers is the best!!

Cannot wait til MonkeyProof and I get the crawler running again. (Broke it on Chocolate Thunder during King of the Hammers)

Glad you had a good time, being locked in the front is a must.

Lmao.. the middle of summer is definitely not off-roading season!! Being broken on the trail in 100+ degree weather is not fun. It should pick up a lot more when it cools down.

Never got around to doing it since we never have to mess with our front. His best bet would be to find someone to needs the front done and take pics etc for a writeup.

Jeezus christ, if you break on that trail your going to need a fking Helo to get you out.

Looks like one of those trails that should be labeled "Body damage inevitable"

Thats ridiculous, lol

Last year our friend was so broken down we had to leave his junk there over night, take off his broken parts to try to fix at base camp.. Then drive up to the entrance of the trail and hike back to his truck the next morning. Lots of fun!

In fact, it was our buddy Glen's yellow pickup in MonkeyProof's first picture

every trail in Johnson Valley is "body damage is inevitable " . Front/rear lockers and 35" tires are a must..don't even try if you don't have em lol

That's the harder line for sure

Even the easier line that you see kn my pics above is not that easy..once you clear that theneclxt section that immediately follows is a left turn with a big set of rocks with a huge undercut that swollow s the left rear tire and then another biggy that hangs the rear diff pretty much at the same time..usually rigs with 35's or smaller will have to get yanked or winched through that section
