I was there last weekend and didn't find most of it that bad. I'm completly stock and of the trails we took, there was only one section that we got hung up on. It was my first time out there so I don't remember the exact trails we took but I'll find out and let you know.

You'll be fine.

Get a map at the Outpost and watch out for Daniel and Dutch Jon.

Go with a buddy (or 10).

Have recovery points on your Jeep.

I was just wondering the same thing! Me and my roommates are planning to head there sometime and try it out. I have a stock YJ with dead suspension! When I say dead I mean the leaf springs are bending the other way in the back. Roommates roll n LR3 and a 07 F-150 thats 6" up.

Some parts are narrow. I'm not sure I'd take an f150 or LR out there.

I drive a TJ and have to fold my mirrors in for a few spots on the trail.

tow your jeep out there with the f150 incase you break something you can still get home.Then send the lr3 for some fish and chips for lunch... prob the best uses for the 3 vehicles

I saw some Land Rovers (Discoverys, not LR3s) doing Kodak Rock the first time I went to Uwharrie. They seemed to be doing OK.

kodak you want lockers, theres easy routes but theres parts your not going to do with out lockers. and one part of dutch john i think has a good size rock hill on it that you need to have good flex to get threw beware of daniel!

I avoid the 'bad' side of daniel, the side closet to the parking lot it starts at, but the from the top of the hard area back to the trails is fun( i hope thats daniel that i'm thinking of). everything else I did with ease, 2wd alot of the time. I even play on kodak rock with no lockers and well I have everything listed below, but I use alot, and I mean alot of skinny pedal. My only thing is I don't care for the mud and it can get pretty muddy. But its the most fun you can have on $5 day pass plus gas. I know i say I hate mud, but if it starts raining on you, oh man that red clay is a blast.

I just got back from a trip in my TJ on 33's with open front/ limited slip rear. I ran every tail except for Daniel. You should be fine. Just start with the easier trails to build up your confidence and have a blast.
