    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.[​IMG]

    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

    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 :thumbsup:

    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 :cookiemonster:

    yea...i'll stick with the high speed stuff in Johnson Valley :eek:

    I'd rather hike up that shit than sweat balls off driving up it.

    Also, winter may be better in the day for off roading but it gets freaking cold and windy at night!
