So I have to ask: how did that happen? Did you go too high? Are you stock in this pic? Just want to know so I know what NOT to do. Since this thread popped up a guy in my office showed me recent pics of a Rover and Tacoma, both heavily modified, rolled on Cleghorn recently.
This is why the "easy" label on Cleghorn makes me nervous. Fire roads are easy. You can't just take a bypass in the middle of the v-notch. I know; I looked for one.

That's part of the point of the thread. I've seen/heard about many flopping or rolling on Cleghorn. I don't think it's an easy trail unless you stay on the fire road and don't take any of the off shoots.

I think the reason people call it easy is because you can do all of the off shoots (in dry conditions) with few mods.

Most would say Holcomb is medium difficulty and John Bull is medium to hard. However, I would say less flop potential on both of those.

I've done JB only once and it made me less nervous than some of the spots on Cleghorn that I've done around 10 times. Similar with Holcomb.

The difference is you need a more advanced build (lockers) to make Holcomb and JB easier. Whereas with Cleghorn and the many off camber sections, a locker might not help you. Take the wrong line on a steep hill and you might flop or roll.

Since I mentioned Holcomb. Here's a flop from about a year ago. He flopped while in reverse. Oops! ha ha

My last time was my first time on Cleghorn. Big Vic had XJPhil lead us. We took a ton of offshoots. It still has snow on the ground which was melting. Was very slick in spots. Lots of V notches and a couple of steep slippery downhills. I was having a blast. I'm still too green to know better. If the leader makes it thru then I oughta be able to. Right?

I remember that day...what a mess. The guy that flopped was trying to anchor the guy that was trying to tug another guy off the rock.. and then the motorcycles came through right in the middle of it all....fun stuff...

Yeah, that was an interesting day on Holcomb. Our guy is stuck then the guy flops doing something stupid, then throw in the motorcycles not wanting to wait for a complete clusterf*ck!

I remember he almost flopped a second time. NOT AGAIN!

I'm still answering that same question my self, everything was stock on the jeep, the front left tire slid into the tench and it was game over after that hahaha, I wasn't running 4wd when that happened. All I had to replace was the fenders,top,windshield and minor dents.

Sounds like not having the sway bar disconnected may have contributed to the problem when one of the wheels went into the trench.

I wheeled mine 2-3 times before getting a lift with disconnects. I had a couple close calls. I got scolded by turdhurdler for one of them.

I scolded you? Must've startled me a bit for me to do that, haha.

Probably less of a scolding and more of a friendly warning.

I think it was after I pulled a 3 wheel move twice within about 20 feet. I think I was trying to go around rocks thinking I couldn't drive over them and got a little tippy.
