you will be fine. I have a grand cherokee with a 3'' lift and 32'' mt's and I can do everything at ure no problem. Daniel is really not that bad, it took me like 3 tries to make it the first time I went when I was open and I locked the rear before I went last weekend and I just walked right up everything.

I drove Daniel on Saturday and found it a lot of fun, one of the best trails I've been on in the eastern US. I did use both lockers when I thought I'd need them and just walked right up everything without any fuss at all...but thats not to say it wasn't fun. I highly recommend Uwharrie to anyone wanting to go, I can't wait to go back.

Uwharrie is a lot of fun, if you're on 33s you'll be perfectly fine.

Hell on 31s you won't have a problem with most of it. There are bypasses for all the hard parts so don't worry about it.

Here's a clip from Kodak Rock:

The easier side of Daniel:

This is the harder side of Daniel.. there are bypasses though so don't worry about it:

This is the same part of Daniel on a different trip, my friend Dave on 31s and nothing else:

Here is on the way to the big hill of Daniel:

You'll be fine.

Some of our guys have done Daniel and Kodak with 31s and open axles, but took some damage. I've done all the trails including both sides of Daniel with 32s and a locked rear and have mashed my bumper, front diff, gas tank, and nerf bars.

There are a couple spots (Dutch John I think is one) where you can get close or scrape your driver's mirror on walls or trees.

Edit: if you go up Daniel from the parking lot side, there is no bypass and you'll need to climb two tough ledges.
