yeah as long as the trails are dry you can do almost all of them. i got a 2.5" lift on my yj and my friends yj is stock and we did Rocky Mountain loop and daniel and both did fine.

The problem is its been raining ALL week and there are chances of isolated showers Saturday and Sunday so I'm almost 100% sure it wont be dry. My other concern was not his clearance but his worn out tires. I'm not to sure on the gas tank skid plate...

Sounds good. I'll do my best to try and find the place, and I'll be there tomorrow morning. I'm leaving Raleigh right now and should be in troy in a few hours! I'm taking my black TJ, it looks pretty stock except its on 33's. I can't wait!

hey guys,, well we had a great time on sunday . We did all the trails except daniel ,, although i thought stephen could have done it . The only trouble we was at dutch john, where stephen had to try it a few times , but after he aired down some more he got right up it. I forgot my camera , but stephen took some pics ,, he'll prob post them up soon ,, he also got a video of me on kodak rock
GOOD TIMES

Sorry for the delay guys! I didn't get home until late last night. I had a meeting with a Navy recruiter on Monday (applying for commission as a Navy officer!)

So I had a GREAT time at Uwharrie. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. I was seriously impressed with the capabilities of a jeep. It seemed like sometimes we were crawling up the mountain sideways! I need to thank starsjeep for being an awesome guide. Without his knowledge and experience I would have A) gotten lost a few times for sure, and B) not attempted things in the end I would have made it through fine, and C) provided me with good tips and pointers as well as advic on what parts of the trails to by-pass. So.......thanks starsjeep !!!! Anyways, on to the pictures!

Before:




Just leaving the Dutch John Trail Head:


Kodiak Rock:

No major damage to either jeep, and surprisingly not too muddy considering how wet it was...
