doh I read this after I posted. If you guys are just going to leave from the camp site then I don't want make you all go out of your way.

If I can come, perhaps I can just meet you at the camp site.

We are meeting at the flying J truck stop in Fraizer Park at 10:30, the campsite is at the end of the trail and if your not camping you can drive out through hungry valley after the run.

the campsite is at the end of the trail, and we are not going there beforehand. we will meet at the flying jays, hit the trail and we will end up at the camp.

you can continue on but fyi it takes an hour to drive from the campsite at the end of the trail and out to the 5 thru hungry valley fyi.

its a dirt fire road most of the way down the mountain, easy to follow.

We did miller 3 weeks ago. There was a pretty big Rattler hanging around under the table at the stream crossing. We poked him a few times with a long stick and got him to go into a hole under the big tree on the right. Just keep a look out. Had a blast on the trail. My first time out.

Should have killed, cooked, and eaten that snake. Rattler is delicious.

I'm in for the day run. Wish I could camp, but have too much to get done that weekend. First time doing Miller, but have been trying to get in on a run there for a while, and meet some people on the forum for a while, too. I can get out Saturday, so its now or never!

you haven't been off road before? i will go over the basics with you and how to drive off road before we hit the trail.

you have a jku? is it stock? do you have rock rails, becuse there is a section at the end you will need them if your not lifted, and because of your longer wheel base. your jk will make it thorugh no problems, though, but be prepared there is always possibility of damage. you will get custom pin striping on the trail, ie branches scratching down the side of your jeep.

also if your stock and not lifted, you will need to completely remove your sway bar links, and not just disconnect them. how do i know? on this same trail a stock jku popped 2 tires because his sway bar links rubbed at full turn and flex into his tires.

the trail is mostly steep and rutted, some rocky parts. if you make it up the gate keeper (which is not bad at all) just point it up and go, you will be fine. i will spot you thru the trail.

here is a video one time we went.

Last time we did this trail we had a stock YJ with street tires and he made it through with no problems. Just have to pick the right lines.

Other than one time in the Rockies up at Camp Dick in a rented stock F150, yeah this is my first time driving, and definitely the first in my Jeep.

Jeep Stats:
JKU Sport 2012
Stock Rubicon Tires (32's) NO lift
Stock Transfer Case/Gas Tank/Evap skid plates
Rock Hard Oil Pan/Transmission/Catalytic Converter skid plate
And I just received today some Rock Sliders that I hope to be able to put on tomorrow.

I have no idea how to disconnect, let alone remove my sway bar links. Is this easy to do? Do I need any special tools for the job.
Sorry for nubbing it up, if you prefer not to lead a newb down this trail I fully understand, I will wait till the 13th to go.

You wont have any problems. Sounds like your Jeep is set up just fine for this trail. Its a good trail to learn on and it sounds like we will have a very small group so its a good chance to learn and see what your Jeep can do. As for the sway bar disco Im not sure how they work on a JK but Im sure that Brad will help you out with that. So come on out and have some fun.

I seriously can't wait. I bought the Jeep so I could go wheeling. While I'm not interested in doing extreme wheeling (yet), I really want to get out there and do something. And I definately appreciate having more experience Jeepers out there to point me in the right direction, so thank you for that.

Beantown,

The link to the first video just takes me to the vimeo homepage. Do I need to create an account to view the video?

The second link was awesome. Very cool camera angle during the video.

I enjoy wheelin with new jeepers and helping out if needed. I think that you will find that alot of people on this forum feel the same way. i have only been on 3 runs with the forum group but I have always felt welcome and had a great time. This run will be a good practice run for the large group run on the 13th if you plan on doing that one too.

your jeep will make it thru, and we won't leave you on the trail

the trail is not so difficult, and you will be amazzed at what your jeep can do. we will go over with you how to pick lines and drive in 4 lo. do you have an auto or stick? (cause only real jeeps are stick) to disconnect your sway bar links, or removed them, do a search on here. i have a rubicon so i cheat with a push of a button. its not hard, 4 nuts and bolts.

try this link for the video

https://vimeo.com/26306080

why you want to disconnect:
