We'll see. I'd rather do it once then get something in there that I'll just end up tearing out later.

Good point! I wish it was an easier subject to figure out. Reading that TJ cage thread with Blaine's philosophy makes you just not want to do anything with it, or go all out so I understand where you're coming from.

I talked to Blaine about cages a bit when I went over there to get my bearings pressed on. He makes some really good points which is why I'm skeptical.

I was feeling pretty confident about doing it but then I remembered all the problems with it. Lol.

I'm probably just gonna put a "glorified cb rack" in my jeep

Either ill go all out or leave it alone basically

Getting in and out of it all the time with door bars would get real old

Hanging out with Blaine, he really makes you think

Yea.. door bars, cross brace across the B pillar, harnesses, would make the Jeep a pain in a lot of cases.

I think I learned more in the couple hours I talked to Blaine then anywhere else! Really enjoyed going over there.


Are you going to be at the offroad expo this year? I talked to you last year @ the Savvy booth.

The CA section here is pretty dead. the only reason I go to that other forum is because they have a lot more runs.

I think we need to do a little Socal JF Cougar Buttes run. Keep my number for these future trail rides.

No need for 35's at cougar buttes. 33's are just fine as well as 31's and some good driving and a locker or two

35's make the main trails there boring for me atleast. I'm always venturing off and playing on the awesome uncharted terrain

It is a great place. Lots of room to learn and it's much more forgiving than the hammers

There is a bypass for just about every obstacle and your not stuck in the middle of a big rock filled canyon so it's less stressful

One of my Fav places to mess around

You and your buddy Carlos have still yet to come play on the rocks by my house. I got lots of cool **** just like cougar buttes actually

I probably had the most fun in my TJ at cougar buttes when it was mostly stock. When I go back i am definetly doing some of the harder offshoots.

Yours would do just fine .

Theres plenty of trails there that wouldnt be boring on a rig on 35s. Hammerdown and Hardrock come to mind.

Bullfrog is still fun for me even on 35s
