Dishpan & John Bull

Heading up to Holcomb Valley CG on Friday.

Anyone have any beta on the current conditions of Dishpan and John Bull? I'm in a JK 4 door with 35's and winch and pops is in a 69 Bronco with 35's as well.

Hit the trails this weekend with a 69' Bronco. Major thunderstorms and floods down John Bull, tons of wet rock and lots of slipping. Had to turn around becuase the rock was too wet. 1 broken drive shaft, body damage, and flooded engine in a 4' deep puddle (flash flood). Ended up blowing the engine up on the drive home. Anyone know any good Hemi convestion specialists in SoCal?
