I agree that videos like this ruin our reputation. People will think were a bunch of reckless idiots with no regard for the environment.
No kidding, when they try to roll the Jeep back over I'm sitting there thinking wth are they doing rolling it THAT direction.

Seriously though, I've done Cleghorn a few times and feel it is a real fun trail, but not that hard. It does have some hard spots, but the best thing about it is every obstacle has a bypass. Many also have easy and hard routes.

I've watched a lot of the roll over videos on youtube to try to figure out what they were doing wrong so I don't repeat it. Many times it was simply that they were going too fast or doing something else stupid.

This is one of my favorite examples of doing something stupid:

AGREED.

Respect the land. It's not a tall order.

CLASSIC.

And for the record, nobody should be trail blazing over shrubbery. It's disrespectful (I don't care where you're at) and why a lot of our wheeling locations get shut down.

They blocked off some of the tough stuff. There was one section that alot of people had not been on since the storms, some nice 3 wheel action.

pluke the 2 Not a bad line. He floored it when he got sideways and those are top heavy.

So bad line and maybe a little too fast?

From what I remember it was between 80-82 and everyone was OK. From what one of the guys told me they had that toy with the works, seletables, marlin transfer case, etc. Sad to see the pics but they were hopeful for a rebuild with a v8

I wish I had pictures but the fire department close that extra credit line until they got the truck out.

One side note, the guy I went with bailed on me a little bit less then half way up, so I ended up doing it alone.

turdhurdler Heck, I never hate on someone on the trail. A few years ago I was the guy in a 2wd thinking I was cool.

949OC Came across this one on the other side of the lake on 2N17x. Same thing, IFS stepping in holes in places where he maybe shouldn't be. Even the easy trails can ruin someone's day. But we were able to drag him out out there and back on his wheels.

Cleghorn F up

My Dad, Brother and I went out to cleghorn last saturday , great day, except for the four kids in the 2wd ford F-150 in front of me, got stuck at this spot for about an hour and a half, in front of his pass tire is a giant boulder, indy front end susp and open diff in the back equals long wait, he got stuck 3 more times, on a down hill!
oh well at least we were on the trail.
