Silverton34 Just be careful on that trail as you WILL need a spotter in a few areas. The last mile is the toughest.

Never2Old Sounds like I should give it a try, after all she knew what she was getting into 20 yrs ago, and as if I've changed, not. This will be fun, hopefully won't bring back any incidents. lol

Never old,

My friend & I did it in October with a stock JKUR & our 2door. We aired to 24psi. He steered around rocks I was able to drive over and we lightly touched the frame 5 or 6 times, no worries nothing damaged and was a fun day. that's one of my favorite trails down in Moab. Mainly just be careful up high on the slick rock. Your Rubi will crawl down the Dragons Tail without touching the brakes!!

I feel like bring in the passenger seat is a lot more stressful than the driver seat. Things feel way worse when you don't have control.

No body hurt, just my pride, got to know her on the three hour stroll back to town. lol best start to a great life with her.
hey so were you the people on Lion's Back years ago?

Secondly, with the stock mud tires, how low should I drop the pressure to manage contact with the slick rock? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
Ill be taking my stock jkur through there this spring. I did follow one a few years ago with my yj and he did drag a bit but nothing major.

dwindeck Your rubi will walk thru it easily. But it's always good to be with others, and better yet with someone who knows the trail.

Rubiconpoor I have done HR about 10 times, you can do 90 percent but DO NOT DO TRAILS ALONE!!

Skip what doesn't feel right, if you go to Moab and want to run with others just meet at city market around 8 am.
Most people will welcome you and your wife.
I have done Hells Gate but I had a GREAT spotter.
Have fun

Utahpete If you take the bypasses through the tough sections you can probably make it, but you will most likely have some scraping underneath.
Use low range, sway bar disconnected and about 18 psi in your tires

Hells Revenge, Can I do it?

Just looking for some advice around Hell's Revenge, I have a stock 2013 JKUR, added a winch but based on the photos I've seen it may not be very usable. The wife and I were going to drive over to Moab for our first venture out in the new Rubicon and wondered if the stock configuration will make it through Hells Revenge trail?

Secondly, with the stock mud tires, how low should I drop the pressure to manage contact with the slick rock? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
