I did almost all blue trails with a few greens mixed in. I am on stock end links front and rear and still connected. It was the best off-road park I've been too. What kind of lift are you running on yours to be at 3.5"? I am looking to add a bigger spacer for now which should put me at 3.75".

OME HD springs with .75 spacer front and rear. The springs alone game me about 2.75" of lift then the spacers gave me the rest. Im also looking to go a bit more to 3.75". Might put a OME 10mm spacer in.

You run into any problems on the green trails? I want rock sliders but I don't think I will have them this summer.

Green trails are the easiest....if you plan to do blue you NEED rock sliders. I should take some pictures of the abuse mine took.

Whoops, got my trail colors mixed up. My buddies do a lot of green trails but occasionally run into the blue trails here and there. Looks like I'm going to need to fab up some rock sliders.

Here's just some of the beating the IRO sliders took running the blue trails at Rausch Creek. I couldn't get any good pictures of the bottoms. They are pretty beat up.They held up great and I can honestly say that they are worth every penny and saved the rockers. The last picture is of the scrape and dent in the rear drivers door. Its barely noticeable.

Thats not too bad haha. Looks like they're worth their weight in gold then. I've been meaning to pick up some sliders, the initial price isn't bad but shipping kills it.

You are not kidding when you say they are worth their weight in gold. I paid $480 shipped for these and they are Iron Rock Off-road Premium sliders. I hear if your a paying jeepforum member they will give you half off the shipping. That would make them around $440 shipped. I would not get anything but the premium as they come with the tube which has saved my door and rockers numerous times.

I was actually sold on the jcr stage 3 until i found the Iro ones. I like how they tuck up tighter to the rocker. Iro also uses 2x2 instead of the 2x4 which doesn't stick out as much. I think you'll be happy either way.

I'm Platinum5.9s brother and I went along with him to Rausch Creek. Unfortunately my ZJ STILL wasn't up for going yet, but I had a GREAT time just riding along and I'm the one who took all the videos. The Jeep performed awesome and the QD was great and came in handy several times. Let me tell you if it weren't for those sliders, the doors probably wouldn't even open anymore honestly. I can't count how many times we came down on them HARD. Between those and the transfer case skid, he avoided thousands of dollars of damage. Plus they worked really nicely to pivot the Jeep on a couple occasions. Honestly even some of the green trails were a little more than I expected. Definitely not something you could really take a stock grand on. Anyways I highly recommend Rausch Creek it is awesome! Definitely lives up to its reputation!

I was wondering if you were there and the vids were your doing! Sucks that the zj is still waiting. Let me know if you end up wanting those rockers done and I'll reach out to my guy again
