Tuttle is a great place. What was the purple jeep with street tires thinking or did you guys apply just enough peer pressure for them to step out into the mud?

Hunter
Although it looks purple in the pics, it was red. I am anti-mud and advised him to stay away. However...... he didnt Just less than 1 month ago the whole lower part of tuttle was underwater. Heck, even in the dry stuff it was soft enough to allow us to sink 2-3inches.

Do you make it down to tuttle that often? I would like to wheel with a built ZJ some day

Been out there a couple times, before I owned a jeep. Was always with my step dad and step brother. Look forward to making it out there with my jeep, once it is completely done.

Drive train hill is pretty bad ***. The exit hill, my step brother tried making it up, the last time we was there. He made it 3/4 of the way, but then rolled down about 1/2 of it. lol Wasnt funny at the time, but he didn't think he'd get very far up and would just back down. But, the jeep kept going until he trip to pop over a jutted rock or something. After that, things happened very quickly. Took a couple hours to winch it back down, after we righted it. Once down, we jumped back in and drove it back to the trailer. That was a pretty intense ride back, after rolling 3 times down the hill.

The crazy thing is, after the jeeped stopped rolling and we climbed out, virtually unharmed, we could hardly walk due to the incline of the hill. I asked him what the hell we were thinking and he just shook his head. lol

I have not yet gone up Driveshaft yet. I will do it though Going down is a piece of cake. The "exit" hill from Driveshaft is fun to climb. Nice and steep with a few little rocky ledges.

First off, great pics! Wish I could've been there. I'll probably go down a couple times in Aug. so i'll make sure to post and hopefully those in the region can link up.

Second, Driveshaft has gotten a lot tougher over the past few years. My dad and I have driven it with two stock Grand Cherokee's but the last time was probably nearly 4 years ago. It would probably be next to impossible to do it as it is now with the stock ZJ (unless Hunter was driving, of course ). A stock TJ, especially a Rubicon, would probably be able to do it w/ a good line and a little throttle (just a little). Dammit, I need to wheel!!!

There is no way a stock rig (TJ, ZJ, whatever) could do driveshaft these days. It is so washed out, when it curves to the left. A stock rubi might be able to do it locked and the front end disco'ed.

Impressive I am not aware of that ledge. Please, tell me where

I think this fall we need to arrange a Jeepforum Tuttle run I will be gone for the first 2 weeks of August (wheeling in Colorado for 2 weeks) Anytime after that I should be free to wheel.
