Dusy-Ershim Trail - Advice
 
I'm thinking about heading up and hitting this trail with a couple of buddies. I have a 2.5 TJ with a 32" tires, 4" lift, CV shafts, ARB in the rear with 30 spline axles and upgraded to the AX15 tranny. I also just got a 2007 JKU Rubi that is stock except for the fact its a rubi, Flat fenders, and I put 35" tires on it. Ive been wheelin' for a long time so the technicality of the trail is not what worries me.

My question is, should I leave the Rubi at home and take my short wheelbased jeep instead of worrying everytime I come across a rock garden? Yes this does seem like an awfully stupid question, but I would so much rather go in my new JK for comfort wise and I can sleep in the back of it instead of in a tent on the ground.

If you have any other advice or tips for me, by all means I am looking for as much information on this trip/trail as possible. Thanks guys.

I believe they recommend no less than 35's locked. Also a winch is a must have. If you have a Rubi locked on 35's I would take that. Also...there are many videos out there showing the terrain. That should give you an idea as to what to expect. The hill they call Thomson hill I think is the toughest part because its all rock most the way up. However I bet with a good spotter and some careful driving you can get through it without a scratch. Either way as I understand it. It doesn't matter what you take. Just be prepared for anything.

I hope to tackle this trail next summer.

It is 30 miles long and runs from Kaiser pass to the north east end of courtright lake. You have to take everything with you that u may or may not need.

also plan on it taking u at least 3 days
someone in your group must have a winch
add a cb to the list.....because there is no cell phone coverage

I live in SoCal and would be interested in making this trek. If you guys are going up on Thursday, when will you be returning home?
