Forgive my ignorance, just bought my 1st wrangler and want to take it on some trails. But, the jeep is just stock - no fancy upgrades. Would I be biting off too much by hitting up the cliff with my stock ride and limited experience? I don't want to trash my jeep the first time out. There are some crazy youtube videos from the cliffs. Don't think my standard ride would cut it on the videos I saw. Long and short for a newbie with stock ride, no wench, would I be able to enjoy the cliffs (and not trash the new ride.) Thanks for any info everyone.

Cayhill the Cliffs isn't that bad during the dryer season. A stock rig with All Terrain's and some guidance you can have a great time and not get into too much trouble. I would suggest though that you head out to the Badlands first, less slick stuff (the cliffs is primarily a slick blue clay) and there are a ton of open areas for you to get a good idea of what you and your Jeep can/can't handle.

When you get some mods and/or tires the Cliffs will be a true challenge. It has a lot of up and downs, wicked hill climbs, creeks and draws are the most challenging part of the park. When you add even a slight sprinkle to the ground it makes the "easy" trails a challenge. I have wheeled a lot of places and if you can wheel at the Cliffs you can wheel anywhere.

If the wife knew how much I got in this thing I'd have to sleep in it!!

If it's not the refinery causing it, what is the excuse now to raise the gase price over .50/gal in the last couple weeks?
