I'm new to jeeps as well but not so new to offroading. Last two weekends we went out to big bear and cleghorn ridge and i made it through with a few bumps on nothing more than ~32" mud terrain tires and limited slip diff in the rear.

Ive been emailing with another guy from this forum that just got his jeep back from the shop with new mods about this weekend too.

Cleghorn has bypasses on the fire road. With planning and gps (i have one we can use), im sure you could get around anything that you dont wanna try going over.

Do you have a cb radio? If not, it would be good to try and get one before heading out

This section is not the place you look for group rides.

I'll move this thread.

LOL I was at work and mis read it at first, I saw L.A., Santa Clarita and rowler so I read hunger valley. Your gonna try Holcomb creek? Fire cleared the creek of its canopy but its still a pretty ride. Lotsa rocks. Your steps might not make it LOL

Wait holcommmmm you might have a problem making it thru some spots. i wouldn't recommend it until you get a lift. Which way are you planning on going. If i remember it correctly the entrance on the west end was hard to get thru. I am on 35's open and dinged my plastic steps. make sure you have tow points and a good spotter. There are no bypasses for Holcomb from what i recall

Oh sorry just read it completely. Holcomb Valley is different then the holcomb creek "trail" That trail is rated a 6-8 on a 10 scale. With lockers its easier. but clearance is a factor

Not to familiar with trails out your way, i'm in west covina, most the trail's i've been to have been in big bear and that general area. Your are more then welcome to join my runs if you want to explore. I usually will do the easy to medium trails if ii'm leading. I've been out there once ,near gorman and i dead a "easy" trail and a hard trail. Always do trails with someone else and carry the right gear. You should never run a trail by yourself.

I was thinking he might reconsider after seeing the gate keeper on either entrance. Hell may as well run john bull too LOL won't have any plastic left and body damage to boot. ;-) at least if you had rock rails then you could be dragged thru but plan on repairs.

Thanks J! I saw this briefly just as we lost service. We ran from the forest service station on the 38 to pioneertown and back. Hit about a mile worth of black diamond-rated route thanks to the guy i went with and had a blast! He's on the forum and will post his pics within the next week. When he does, i will also post mine!
