My jeep will hate me after this. 31's sounds like some serious banging and scraping.

I did it on 31s last year for the M&G. You will scrape quite a bit but its do able. Only had to be strapped over one of the waterfalls.

Sounds fun to me, hopefully I'll be outboarded by then with those hold sitting in my garage at least xD.

I wish I had more power to waste these 31's. General grabbers @ 58 lbs in the 31x10.5 flavor on 3.07 is some bs

Jeeping : the art of getting dirty and broke, while slowly heading nowhere and taking all day to do it

I do also prefer a smaller group. We did Calico with 5 Jeeps last week. It was perfect! Got done pretty fast since all were pretty capable. All had 35's. Only 1 didn't have a locker. We had time to do the mud hills or something like that + stop and walk the Gatekeeper.
Cool Rick- been a while since we've wheeled together.

I've taken many through Calico with 31's. As long as you're armored some underneath, you'd be fine...just may need a strap in a place or two.

I did Miller on 31's with 1 inch of lift and no lockers. Got strapped a couple of times because I was learning to pick lines.

Miller in Frazier Park and Doran/Odessa in Calico are 2 different animals. Miller can be done completely stock with maybe some sliders for the very last part of the trail.

You know half the fun is getting lost Bob. And more importantly, good luck getting that woman to do anything if she sets her mind otherwise. Lol. But yeah, she's a great trail leader. And a blast to party with at the end of the day.

Whoop Whoop!!!

Awesome! Calico's wheelin' is by far one of my favorites. Badass rock crawling and the colors of the canyons and rocks are gorgeous. I'll add ya to my list and look forward to meeting you!

I bought my Rock Hard sliders for $300. They're a good make (I have their Roll Cage as well, that's already been put to the test and passed with a flop ) , they look freakin awesome and they're priced right. As for armor, get an oil pan skid at the very least, They aren't going to break the bank and you need one for Calico. Sharp rocks there. Let me know if you'd like to go and I'll add ya to my list! Be great to make another new wheelin' friend
