    Default T33A. Run Report.



    Oh boy that trail has become much more challenging in the last couple of years. Ran it stock back around 2012 with no issues. Today I have 2.5 inch lift and 33s, sliders and other armor. I am thinking this might be my last time. Thinking one really wants 35s to run it clean. Scraped rear bumper coming off a drop and also put a big dent in one of my sliders.

    Anyway it was a good day to be out except for the appx 50 atvs we had to negotiate around. Nice to meet everyone. No pics for me.

    I did it 3 weeks ago, With 33in, 3in lift, and 1.25in body lift on tj. It had 2 hard parts for me. I had time, so i could try different lines. I did it solo, but i really regret doing that because I could have really screwed myself. My rig was at the limit at 2 spots, which was not comforting solo. The trail has a point where the line is 2in one way or the other to start hitting armor.

    When is the rental company "done" each day? 5p? An evening run might be a thought for much lower traffic.

    This was a great run, definitely pushed the limits of the Grand Cherokee, was glad for the new tires. Would have been rough with the last set. The Wranglers up front did a great job leading the way and the Tacomas behind me seemed to just eat up all that mother nature could throw at them.

    Got some scrapes on the bumpers, just the trail's way of letting me know what needs to go

    I'm waiting on getting some photos and videos off my dad's phone, I have some roof cam footage of Hunter's Jeep in front of me tackling some of the hard stuff that I'll try to throw together and share here.
