it was a blast, is a definate struggle of smaller tires and lower jeeps, but doable. we are looking to go extreme when it drys up a little and do busy wild when rick gets his lockers and 35's

For TJ's, the move to 35's is when you begin the descent onto the money pit. It's a lot easier for the JK's.

If its dry should be ok I had to lock both ends couple of times. Wet 35's your winch is going to get a work out and if your not locked front and rear it will be a rough day. It has some deep ruts.

Some of those holes on that trail were not bad... Till you imagined them filled with water.
