custer3_5 I had a blast up there today. It doesn't really get good until after you pass where the fire tower is. I have a stock JKU and it did great. I don't ever wanna go up there without a winch or somebody to yank me out of the mud if I get stuck.

custer3_5 It's actually a good thing nobody could go. Something came up and I was forced to stay away from there. If everything works out I've always got Fridays off and I'd love to get out there again.

Yea we can do that and actually I'm meeting another Jeep this Saturday morning and we are riding through 7 Creeks outside of Christiansburg and then heading down through McCoy into Giles County then up to Mtn Lake and then to New Castle and do Broad Run.

POINT D is the beginning of the road that leads to shoe creek. if you follow the map while zoomed in close, you'll see an outhouse and parking area in gravel, about half way between POINT D AND POINT E. that is where the trail really begins so to speak.

POINT E is the end of shoe creek and the map takes us back to wards RD in lynchburg.

BJK2080 Who wants to go Sat??
04-28-2014 09:24 AM
stevenjill i as well would not recommend a stock anything go across Potts. and i had to wonder if that Chevy Tracker is still up there!! that was CRAZY!!!!
04-27-2014 12:06 PM
bajonesy77 Not sure they made it out but in the middle of potts yesterday we passed a stock looking 4 door Chevy tracker! Steve saw it too so no im not crazy. The stacks section is the easiest it has ever been so the only really rough spot is at the bypass at the ledge aka rocker knocker. Please dont think you can take a stock anything thru and not suffer some type of damage, I dont recommended it but yes apparently some do it but with no regard for the condition of their vehicle or the safety of those with them!

That would actually be considering a worth while trail ride not really. We have Potts an then shoe creek is around 2 hours away but is stocked friendly an an awesome trail

That's about what I was thinking. What kind of skids would you recommend? And what brands? And for a winch I need a new a new bumper first. I want to put a winch on a bumper with a hitch receiver. I don't live in the best neighborhood so I'd like to easily remove it.

From what I understand at the very least 3 inch lift and 33s. But I did hear of someone with a jk rubicon went through stock. But they had plenty of trouble
