    You don't need one man. There's a way around everything and we have recover gear to pull you out.

    Dishpan is chewed up..worst that it has been in several years..I personally know two people who have flopped going up dishpan recently as last weekend and heard of a jeep that actually rolled down several times from the top. A rear locker and a min of 33" tires are highly recommended due to actual trail conditions. Steve the new guy at allpro who goes by therealscuba flopped his junk there lastweekend..

    Dishpan Springs Trail(3N34), also known as
    Deep Creek Trail, is a moderate trail with a
    couple difficult sections. This trail requires
    a minimum of a moderate lift, 32" tires,
    sliders/skids and 1 locker. Body damage to
    a stock rig is very likely. This trail starts by
    Lake Arrowhead and drops you off in Big
    Bear. If you're not sure of your driving
    abilities, it's not recommended you attend
    this length of the run.
