Black Bear Pass

Anyone able to weigh-in on doing black bear in a JKUR? There seems to be a lot of discussion on using a short wheel base vehicle, but I would like to take my own ride...without damaging it or myself. The you tube videos make it look doable, if you don't mind challenging switchbacks.

I plan on doing it this fall, and so I've done quite a bit of research as well. Many of the videos I see have JKUs in them. I see no reason why you can't do it as long as you are very careful. There's nothing on the trail that is extremely challenging terrain wise, it's just the off camber "steps" and the switchbacks that are dangerous. I think if you keep your head on straight and watch what you're doing you'll be just fine. Have you seen this video?

Yes, saw that video, thanks. I did not see anything terrifying except where the driver side wheels were hanging on the edge! Can't remember if it was in that video or another...
