I do have front and rear lockers (just the stock OEM Rubicon ones).

We led an XJ with a rear locker on 32's down Rock Creek. No damage, few scrapes. Good spotting and good driving make up for 'mechanical advantage'.

(I'm gonna have the strap hooked up for them anyway... )

6.5" lift and 37's is a ridiculous amount of ground clearance for a jk. Actually too much. Unless your a terrible driver you won't even scratch a skid on a black.

Thanks for the heads up! It's too much clearance? Meaning I'm too tall now? I know I was having issues running my 3.5" lift on 35s, mainly with cresting hills. My skids were pretty scratched and banged up last time I went up. I'm also very heavy with all steel parts (fenders, bumpers, skidplate system, rock sliders, etc), and a hardtop with full doors; so that squats me quite a bit. I really hope I made a wise investment, as it realllllllly hurt my pockets to reupgrade the Jeep after having it only a few months.
I am actually pretty new to wheeling (started in April). So, I guess that qualifies me as a terrible driver I've done a lot of off roading in quads and dune rippers, but this is my first full size vehicle crawling. I VERY much want to learn, and very much want to learn to spot for people too. Thought about taking the 101 and 201 learning classes at RC, but they aren't too often, and I've heard from people taking them, that they didn't learn much. I still am thinking about doing them anyways.

Oh, looking at the map, I may have done one black before without scratching on the 3.5 lift I had before. It was a long rock garden, but some stockers were going through too. I'm not 100% sure, it may have been a blue, but it was indeed tough and fun.

No your fine. I have a 4.5" lift with 37's n I feel too high. You don't need much lift with a jk. 6.5" is high though esp for your drive shafts. I was just breaking your balls. Your better off wheeling with a group that'll push you a little bit but keep in mind that you wanna drive home then taking the classes.

Matt we are going to get there Tom afternoon. From a few pages back, it sounded like people were ready to hit the trails around 8-830. We'll see how that goes after a night of boozin haha

It should be fun... finally got my t case fixed. Me and my buddy did the install wrong. I should have double checked him but thought he would be good since he did one before. Nope... Long story.

Yeah I think around 8 is when we started meeting and paying for the day and all that last year. We usually meet 1 morning on the comp course for a poser shot. I'd be down to do it again.

I want to make sure guys are still wheeling on Sunday... I'm planning on going to the Jeep show on Saturday, and doing Rausch on Sunday. If this doesn't work out with anyone in this group, i'm going to have to try and rearrange my schedule to do Rausch on Saturday instead.

You guys can message me on here or PM me if you want my number. Best thing to do however is try to find a group either on this thread or on the facebook... then link with them. Our group already has too many


Wes, seriously. Call off....This happens once a year. It's more important than a wedding (I'm skipping my cousins). You can do it.

That said, the rig is ready

...almost.
