YYea but im stock on 31s no lockers haha

it shouldn't be a problem i ran 95 percent in 4hi no lockers. only put it in 4low a couple of times wanted to get a feel of the difficulty of the main trails for people with no lockers and not super low geared rigs. only used the lockers on the way to saddle lake and in morris lake. which are trails that do not have to be run as they break off the main trails.

Ah okay, i was looking at those pictures of the extreme trail and i was like HELL NO! I might have a small lift by the time this trip comes around.

gotcha. dont plan on doing that one again myself. It is a bit to much for my little Rubicon being the smallest jeep in the group, although i was surprised at just how well it did do.

Nice looking area. So you think a JKU with 32's (roughly, actually 31.6 vs. the stock 32.1's) with no lift will be ok? Doesn't look like much pinstriping and I'm more worried about body/underbody damage since the Jeep is my DD and only vehicle lol. I WILL have discos before the trip, but being as I have a Sport I have no lockers other than the BLD "brake lock" system and 3.73 gears.

You'll be alright. I tore it up at Knoxville stock with 32s and no lift. 3.21 gears and street tires. Oh and my winch gave me a nice .5-.75" droop... I'll be lifted for this run with bigger tires but still 3.21s and no lockers... Might have discos but not sure yet. Mine is my DD too and I hate pinstripes lol

Can we all meet up in Williams, say about 8AM? Just a rolling stop would be cool. That should get up to Paradise by 10AM.

The in-laws live up in Chester. So if the wife comes with that is where we may end up. If I can't talk her in to camping.

not sure what is the fastest way from there is but you could go 5n, to 162e, 70n to 191 paradise.

looks like the best route with out having to go across 20 to yuba city then heading north on 99 or 70.

LOL well don't get me wrong, I don't want pinstriping either. That just didn't look like it is the issue with these trails. Looked like it was more underbody stuff to watch out for instead.

LOL well, I DID try to install some Teraflex discos a few months back. They ended up going back to Quadratec though. Was missing hardware and it seemed like they changed the design to where there should be a different link for each side (zerk is now on the side instead of the end) but they sent me two of the same side which would have put the passenger side zerk facing the axle and unusable (beside that it wouldn't fit on the pin). I have JKS showing up Monday afternoon though
