    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    I've seen good year frequently throw out buy 3 get one free deals. Matter of fact they had one going about 2 weeks ago. Also, sears usually matches online deals so if a place doesn't have them in Stock, call sears.

    So is anyone else going to want to wuss out and stick to the easier trails? I'd rather not have to call AAA for my daily driver. :D

    Just spreading the love Paul! Are you 2wd? Checked out the site you suggested and they don't have tires listed.

    Jim, if I go, I'll be on the easier trails especially at the beginning.

    Ok, ok, it was harsh bouncing. But I didn't get all 4 wheels off the ground or something.

    One of the reasons it took me so long to get back to you all was because I had to stop and watch your drive. I can't say all 4 tires came off the ground at the same time, but I can tell you that you used all the down travel you had available. If I had know what was coming, I would have recorded it! :eek:

    This is in my hometown so I'll probably be ready to hit some of the trails up there. I'll be in my '86 though. I took my Tacoma up there a few years ago and it's no joke, unless you have a locker and don't give a damn most of the trails are not friendly. I followed a bunch of locked Rubicon's around that night and made almost everywhere they went. What i couldn't climb straight up i would just back up to stay with the group. Get on the website and check out the trail/ hill called twister 2 and 3....the ole '86 had a hell of a time but i made it.

    Let's just say you need to know where you are going. There are a few trails up there that once you get into them you have no choice but to climb some huge ass bluff to get out or back out all the way. For the really hard stuff there are by-passes. All the trails pretty much lead back to the main road too which is where you see the large mudpit posted on here. I stay out of the deep mud when i go but the trails are pretty fun.

    now I didn't mean to talk anyone out of this ride because there are plenty of trails up there that you can stay in 2wd. Like i said i followed locked Rubicon's in my Sport with factory tires so it's doable for sure. The only damage i got when i was with the jeeps was that damn stupid trailer harness connector got bent up, few ledges on the trails i was on.

    you can still get around to watch the large hill climbs and make it through most of the trails.
    By looking at your lift & tire combo you should be fine.
