So after years of waiting I finally built a rig that can handle the Rubicon. So on the 13th me and my friend Jonny headed down to California.
Mine: 93 YJ 4.0L SOA +2 36 13.50 Iroks, D30/D44 open/electric locker
Jonny: 87 XJ 4.5L stroker 8in lift 35 12.50 BFG KM, D30/D44 LSD electric locker
We got to Loon lake at 1pm on the 14th and we took off from the trail head.
Just random trail pics
I would like to say we made it through the trail undamaged but we didn't. I got a nice dent on my driver rocker panel, and a few dings in the frame, also ripped the oil seal on the rear driver side axle.
Jonny had dented his passanger side rocker and but a small tear in the unibody by the stearing box.
Both rigs made it out and home, until......
Conquered the Rubicon only to be done in by I84
Guess i should have topped off the fluid in the rear end back in Reno, good thing for spares.
Overall this was a very challenging trail for both driver and jeep, and I cant wait to go back again next time ill go East to West it will be harder. Took us a total of 14 hours ish of wheeling to get through it.
