Kyle, I'm up for this Sunday.

I ended up not doing Rausch. I spent the whole week in Wildwood instead! Perfect beach weather, not so perfect camping weather. Besides, the beach wouldn't allow me to leave.

Here's a couple of shots near Cape May. The Cape May Lighthouse and WW2 Fire Support Tower #23.

just recently threw a lift and 35's on my jk and have yet to go take it out anywhere. tried last weekend but ended up driving to a place that wasnt legal and then somewhere else only to find out i drove to the wrong town. I'm down for this weekend for sure though. My only concern is I don't have a snorkel and I've heard these trails get pretty deep here in jersey. It's suppose to rain all week

You'll be fine everywhere at stokes and especially in Sparta. The one mud pit that's deep enough you can avoid easily at stokes. And as far as a snorkel goes that's only the beginning to waterproofing your jeep. You need to move diff tranny and tcase breather tubes along with sealing all your electronics. Water and mud ruin things anyways. A buddy of mine hydro locked at stokes but he was being stupid and had holes drilled in his airbox. Your stock intake is fine

My Jeep is stock and I do just fine. Just have to be on the cautious side.

P.S. I'm picking up some Rubi take off shocks and springs. Hopefully this week.

That's up to you guys. I guess at the Chatterbox. I still haven't done the Sparta trails. It doesn't matter to me.

Lets do between 9 and 930 on Sunday at the chatterbox. I haven't done sparta either, can anyone guide us?

Gixxer did you stretch your line on your winch yet? I'm going to need to stretch mine at some point while there, maybe someone can help me out

How many rigs do we have coming?

Had a blast at stokes today. The mud pit over by the bridge is almost completely dried up but I hate mud so it's ok. Otherwise did a few hill climbs and found a nice new super steep hill. Went down into the river with my buddy and the Libby and did everything I could

Yea, I made it a decent distance up before the dirt got too soft and I just dug a big hole.... Same with kpickens...

Got to use my shovel for the first time though, putting the hill back to original condition before we left....
