If you look at his sig, you'll see Lupinsea has a pretty mild set-up. 32" BFG Mt's, Detroit TrueTrac Limited Slip front and rear, D30 and a D35 with high strength shafts. I guess he still has a budget boost with Old Man Emu shocks, but for some reason I was thinking he'd gone to Old Man Emu springs to.

Right on Boknows!
Ill see if one of the guys has one, or if we can get a hold of one when we go out. And ill holler at ya about those those trail points. I think we're gonna hit up some (small) trails around olympia and lewis and then move our way on up. We need to make sure everybody that wants to go can make it. I dont want to get stuck on the first obstical all day because somebody wasnt prepared.

I actually created a trail map of Reiter.

Took me about 6 months of GPS mapping and about 80 hrs total (mapping and 'puter work) for all the route marking and graphics work in photoshop. It's available as a PDF file of a two-sided map. Designed to print on 11x17 paper. If you take the file to a Kinkos or Office Depot they'll print it in color for about $1-2. Another $1-2 and they'll laminate it.

Reiter Trails Map - look in the "maps" folder.


As for the set up, not much in my sig has changed except switching from the Anti-rock to the SwayLOC but it hasn't affected the trail capabilities of the Jeep. What I run is a bit on the light side for about 1/3 or less of Reiter . . . the place has some very challenging and potentially damaging areas. Other areas are no sweat. Um, I've actually had guys in my club on 35's and long-arms refused to follow me through some of the rock gardens after seeing what I had gotten myself into. Yet for all that I try to baby the rig on the trail so I don't break stuff.

I figure my setup is good for about 97%+ of the trails in WA state. It wasn't worth it to me to build my rig to tackles the other 3%- trails and compromise it's driveability. Plus I didn't have the pocket book for a hardercore build.

A stock Jeep can do a lot of the trails. A stock Jeep with a good MT tire can do a lot more.

A slight lift and slightly bigger tires (2", 32's / 33's) can do a bit more trails but do them with much greater ease and panache.

I'd recommend some minimum recovery gear (tow hooks, two d-shackles, a recovery strap, shovel, ax, gloves) and at least one Jeep with a winch.

..But, we do most of our wheeling in Washington, in Gifford Pinchot.
As far as Oregon, I like Sand Lake and Brownscamp.

But I went to Moab for the first time in April...and there's no better wheeling than that

Sandlake is cool. When I go down there I like to take this:








Much faster than my Jeep.

That is definitely on the to-do list.
