Im telling you, all you need are rock sliders. If it is dry you probably wont even need them.

I can't afford them. And I think you would need them wet or dry seeing those ledges. I'm good with upper but not lower. Just not to that point yet.

Ive never seen anyone come close to needing sliders on the first ledge, and the second ledge is more about picking the right line (going up).

When we went up in my LJ 3 weeks ago I chose what used to be the better line to take, that has changed. Combined with the mud and my crappy all terrains, it made for a fun climb (I dont mean that sarcastically, that is the best challenge I have ever had at URE). If I had my good tires that day I could have made that line easily. You have good tires.

True but I can't risk body damage without solid sliders/fenders. I can do the whoe rest of the park without problem. I would consider heading down and back up the main hill but those ledges are just too much for my HS build right now.

Understandable, but when you start really wheeling your Jeep (Im talking bigger than URE) you will wonder how you could ever be afraid of the miniscule chance of body damage that URE offers. I did.

And who said anything about fenders?

IIRC, you gave your rear cloaks a nice love tap on one KC removing tree.

What is a KC removing tree? Dont forget my flares are 6 inches wide... and Im careless at URE because I have such little respect for the place.

Like I said, it comes down to what line you take. I tend to choose poor lines because it makes for more of a challenge.

Remember "There is a nice tree down there that will probably take out your lights"

Haha, yeah, that is a prime example of why you shouldn't mount lights there. That is a different argument though. I do hate that tree.

Heh well those lights were the first thing I bought post lift, so I didn't know better. I hope to learn to weld soon so maybe I can modify the mounts inward some. Plus I plan to replace with D2's some day, so much smaller profile.

I am the same way, a HS budget and damages are not good when you need the Jeep everyday.

Unloaded at Uwharrie. Art Lilley campground is actually pretty nice. Flexed on the ATV unload ramp.

Might want to refrain from doing that to the ramps in the future. The park rangers don't like it and will harass you about it if they see you.
