Looks like a nice place to explore

How big of an area is that rock garden? I only ask because I didn't see any spotters, maybe they were off camera or is it just that one obstacle?

In that part of the trail it was just that obstacle. Most of the time the group I was with doesn't use a spotter unless a driver requests one.

The a quite a few more trails with rock crawling and rock gardens in that trail system.

I wheel a lot by myself, and I'm use to not having a spotter. Did the whole Rubicon Trail without spotter. If your looking for a large rock garden go to The Crusher its a challenge to say the least.

I just wish someone would buy my 35's so I can get my 37's. At this rate I'll wear the 35's out.
Thank you. To keep it relevant to the thread, I need this lift so I can run Rock Garden and Crushers. lol

Crusher will take more then just a lift to do. You seen how tall mine is, Ive smacked the crap out of my belly pan and my rockers last time I was in it. Not to mention the abuse my bumber endured due to the very very tight turns just after the filter on the north side.

Hmmm... interesting.
With our club, there usually always someone up ahead keeping an eye on things "just in case"

Thanks.

Yea thats normal IslandTJ has full skid set up, and uses them to his advantage. Its painful to watch some times. But the sound of skids scraping rocks puts a smile on his face.

The "Crushers" appear to be in a natural state as there are boulders and rocker strewn throughout the upper and lower sections. I just ran my Jeep through the upper portion (depicted in the pics). However, the trail is adopted and maintained so the keep to the natural settings, it is purposely "man maintained" in areas where need be, for example - the filter/entrance .

I'll be going into the crushers also. Skids come in next Wednesday and if all goes well will be installing them on Saturday. I'll be a taller version of Island's Jeep

The rest of us usually request spotters, they are just gluten's for punishment!

That's true. It'll be a while, but eventually I hope to run it. Preferably after the Jeep is paid off. Lol!
