Rawkon Heres some photos of the other areas that can be tuff.
I ran it right during and before a Thunderstorm. I was on 33s and open diffs. A couple spots had me spinning but a good spotter will get you through.

you can see the damage on the tree where people smack it.


I believe right after this pic was taken I wedged my bumper on a rock pretty good.




This spot banged up my lower control arms




haha i had the big green monster tail gating me

RedRubiTJ Jack, weather was typical: mid 70's clear skies. Even in the summer it is rare to hit 90 up there.

tiny, except for lockers you have a better setup than the Rubi's that went - you'll be fine.

No way from the looks of it I think we can get you thru there with no damage. Mabye a little skid scraping, but that's it.

RedRubiTJ Not yet I don't tiny. Like I said I was flying solo so just didn't get a chance to take pics except for these. If anyone else sends any my way I will get them up.

tiny terror Red, you have anymore pictures? I'm curious now since those weren't the really "tough parts".

1BLKJP Looks like good times out there. How was the weather. We were wheeling about at about 5000 feet this weekend and it was about 85 during the day and perfect camp fire and drinkin weather at night.

Oh, and Tiny when I come out there you are going to run this trail and we will spot you right thru. If they don't get you to run it before then that is.

They spotted me in the really tough areas, Red, there just wasn't quite the hand holding that you guys do for me. I'da not made it through the one area without Comp.... and they kept calling it a bypass. Bypass my butt.

RedRubiTJ It did great, I only had one problem where I dropped into a hole and got pretty tippy. It was my own fault as I was trying to make it through it unlocked . I am still getting used to being so big but other than that I am very happy. Did you get my PM?

The two stock Rubis (1 JK and 1 TJ) did fine but scraped up underneath pretty bad. No damage though.

Rawkon sweet pics Chuck, wish i coulda been there. how did your setup work on JB??? i know youve been on it before but just not in your TJ. On the way back home from our last trip a guy in a stock tj on 30s stopped me and asked where i was. he was also in big bear and ran john bull. he said his jeep got beat up pretty bad on that trail.

That's funny. I have gotten so used to it that the OEM fenders look "droopy" to me now .

John Bull 5-17-07

I ran Jacoby and John Bull today with the ROC peoples. We were running slow so I bailed while they continued onto White Mountain. I was solo so didn't get many pics but here is what I have:
