Cleghorn

Can anyone advise me if a bone stock wrangler sport can navigate this trail here in Southern California? I understand from reading about the trail there are alternate by passes when the going gets to the Rubicon level...comments please. Thanks,

Yes. I've led 20 groups through that trail from boner stock to 40" tall tires and both Stock and Heavily Modified Jeeps can make it through all the hard and easy off shoots...

Go with someone and if you don't feel comfortable back off.

I ran Cleghorn in my Tundra CrewMax, that's the 4 door big boy. On 35's and an Old Man Emu 2.5" lift. Didn't even have to use the front ARB locker. A JK Sport will run circles on this trail, probably pull it off in 2WD if driven carefully!

Not trying to start a flame war or anything, but I just love how some never chose the path of least resistance. In a few of those pics you can see that if you move 5ft over on the path you can completely avoid the deep ruts. When I was 20 I would have probably chose the path with the ruts, but at 46 and now wiser I always take the path of least resistance. I bought a Jeep to be able to go into the back country and explore, I have no intention of deliberately taking her into a situation where I may break something or roll and not be able to drive her back home.

I applaud those who take the risk but not me, my pockets are not that deep.

You make a good point. Those thoughts crossed my mind while posting these pictures.

People we're behind me as I was trail leading and I wanted them to experience the joy of using their Jeeps. Sometimes you got to seperate posers from people who wheel. No offense.

You can do the trail easy. The first obstacle can hang up some stock jeeps but can be overcome fairly easy. One of the last obstacles might dent your muffler. And you will get pin striping. Try and go with someone who knows the trails. I've been through with many stock jeeps without lockers and basically street tires. No problem.

No offense taken, to me a Poser is the guy that buy a Jeep (Or big truck), lifts it puts 40" tires and then proceeds to never step her into the dirt. For some Wheeling is the ruts, rock crawling etc, for others it is just being able to go back country, fire roads etc. Again if I had deep pockets and my Jeep was nothing more than my weekend toy I would probably let the dumb 20yr old kid in me come out and play.

Checkout this thread for some Cleghorn video and pics, it's a run I put together in March:

3/11

JPI4.0 is in the 2nd video on one of the harder sections. I think his avatar is from Cleghorn.

Cleghorn is a fun park to go to! A stocker can handle most of the sections. There are a few that you would probably need a locker to make it on though. That's what's cool about Cleghorn though, the main fire road can be used as a bypass for every obstacle.

Definitely go with some people that are familiar with it. That way you'll know which sections you might want to skip. It was the first trail I ever did, met up with people on here. Much more fun with a lift, armor, and lockers.

When you're ready to go, just post in the CA section:
California Jeep Forum - Jeep Wrangler Forum

The second section that Pluke posted is usually referred to as Pilot Rock. That's a fun continuation if you have the time. Definitely have to take the bypass on some of those sections with a stocker though.

Yeah, definitely good to wheel it stock to get the feel for it. The one thing I would say is a good first mod though is rails. You can get Rubi take offs for around $100 - $150 through the classifieds. Rails will save you from some major body damage.
