I'm going to feel like Jed Clampett of the Beverly Hillbillies parking my little tent trailer between your Taj Majal RVs.

I finished up painting some new sliders and bumper on Saturday. Washed the RV on Sunday and hoping to have the Jeep ready by Friday morning.

I just got back from Truckhaven were my JKU took a good beating and Iím feeling a bit sheepish about trail 1. This is my first time at Calico and I want to be somewhat conservative, I believe there are alternates for the Odessa and Duran trail hard spots correct? If not put me back on the rookie run, trail 2.
Thanks

How is your rig set up? Odessa and Doran are not terribly hard. There are a few spots that I feel would be more intimidating than hard. Overall I'd say you would be ok. I would recommend some solid rock rails (which it looks like you have).

No, there is no alternate routes/bypasses for these two trails. With that said, if you have 33" and a locker you will not have a problem. These are very scenic rocky canyons with a few small waterfalls (thus the need for a locker) and NO gatekeeper to worry about. Trail #2 will be very easy and mostly fireroads. Hope this helps...

Ok I feel better, I have a Rubi w/ 4in lift and Toyo 33s and fully armored. I've done all the trails at Big Bear like Holcomb and John Bull. Jeff please keep me on trail one.

Yeah, you're good Randy. I did most of the hard stuff open/open on 33's. With both lockers and armor, you'll be fine.

I was just referencing the noticeable defference in shafts.

Obviously one is for a TJ and the other an LJ.

One of the front caps on my dad's front DS came off and all of the little bearings came out. And my rear DS wasn't holding grease (it was almost completely dry when I took it off). We also wanted something stronger than what was on there. I think one of my driveshafts was unbalanced because I dont have a vibration at speeds anymore.

Now I'm wondering if I may have chosen the wrong run, everyone was talking damage and how tough things were back when I signed up. I'm so confused, lol.

I thought trail 2 was more intermediate, is it really mostly fire roads?

There are some spots that will take a bit of watching where you are going, some fun 4lo areas also. But most of it is accessible with a stocker without mods. Of course, on the same run, you can choose to take a more difficult path to make things more interesting.

Jerry, we have a great time with you in tents, RVs, or around my trailer listening to good Beatles music!

Thank you, it's just that we've never been there so have no clue what to expect. Whatever we're on will be fun I'm sure

The intermediate run is nice, scenic and a variety of trail types and good views. It is best suited for those who are going for their first time or don't have a ton of clearance. It will most likely not require a locker...it's a tough trail to put together, that's why Jeff and I did a pre run.

Dave you did Doran last year and that's probably the toughest canyon to run, it won't be like that. Its tough to find a trail that suits everyone and it's not the best to make anyone uncomfortable with what they are running...

Gonzo ran all of Doran and Wall Street in a 2013 bone stock JKU Sport on 16's with just sliders and only munched the bumper covers. I got it on video. Of course he's a Marine.
