Tsf
 
My 13 year old daughter had her first chance behind the wheel today on the lower section of Hood Raiser. She's hooked! Question for those of you that wheel out at TSF. I just bought a 012 Wrangler. Put some sliders and some better tires on it but have only played around on the moderate trails. Any issues going to the single black diamonds with a stock rig?
Thanks

Hi, welcome to wrangler forum. Whats the better tires you have? If a A/T or M/T you should be fine as long as you air down. Start on Firebreak 5, it's a fun one. There is runs posted here pretty regularly. Also watch the sticky at the top for local get togethers, there won't be another one till next month though. :wavey:

Edit: go with a group, not alone in case you get stuck, read the other sticky about wheeling ethically.

i recommend armor oil pan, rock sliders and such if your gonna run stock, don't need a rogue rock finding an unwanted target. it also depends on what type of trails you want to run, is it more rock crawl type trails or more dirt trails ceder tree is a good trail with not alot of rocks firebrake 5 has rocks but can be done, might need a spotter

FB5 was pretty mild last time I looked at it. He has sliders he said, skid plates are really not necessary, ask Eric K.(white stock TJ with black flames) especially if it's dry. That would be the only single black I would run in a stockish jeep besides Bates road.

only reason i say oil pan skid cause i have seen it needed and used, but yes firebrake 5 can be done stock i know that

Thanks for the replies. I have skid plates on everything but the oil pan. Trying to find one for the 012. I got rid of the Good Year ARS and put a set of Falken ATS on. So far I' m pretty happy with them with 1200 miles on them. They are a little heavier then i would like and I can feel it with the 3:21 gears (unfortunately) I wish I would have done better homework up front and knew about the 3:73 upgrade. Oh well I Guess that's the next thing to do.

EVO makes a nice oil pan skid for the pentastar engine on the '12. Northridge 4x4 sells it here: http://www.northridge4x4.com/shop/off-road-evolution-jk-12-pentastar-oil-pan-skid.

You can get it stand alone, or as part of a full kit to protect the oil pan, tranny and exhaust crossover.

Thanks for the info. Just got off the phone with. Northridge and the skid is on its way

All but 3 trails on archers firebreak can be done with a stock rig and powerline is another great one for beginners. Watch YouTube, There is millions of videos of just about every trail at browns camp.

I've driven my Jeep stock on most of the single black diamond trails in TSF :). This is very feasible when trail conditions are dry and the driver has patience.

Give a little rain & mud, and a winch or strap is pretty much a necessity for a stocker. Also on a wet trail, your chances of breaking something on a stock Jeep increases :whistling:.

Stocker
 
I have run FB5 and all of Archers (down Hill) Hogs - Half of Rocky Up hill all of "Rocky Down Hill" (wont be doing that again) in my stocker and all I have is some good 31s and a few loose screws. So a lot can be done with a stock rig mine never ceases to amaze me.

Cider tree is a good one to learn on. My 10 year old did it few weeks ago in my jeep. Was alot of fun.
