It was a good run, one Toyota, one XJ, 2 YJs and 2 TJs. We first hit the trail at the Rogers staging area (I don't know the name but it's the one that you could access in Rogers) and then headed to Powerline. We did the 2nd section of Powerline but stopped at the entrance of the 3rd section, as we found out that there were some rigs stuck down the trail line. We turned and decided to run Cedar Tree. We completed Cedar, up to just before the final section and then encountered deep untouched trail - so we made a left and ran the service road back to end the day.

Looks like it was a nice day to be out.

I'm a newb to the Jeep world, and I'm looking forward to participating on a run like this - but my rig has a 2" lift with 33x12.5 tires of the All/Terrain variety. Would these tires be effective on trails like the ones you went on? I don't want to be the guy who's stuck all the time and spending most of the day attached to a winch/strap and basically being a drag on the run.

What do you think?

I know you'll do fine. On the run posted above, we had a Jeep on a 2" lift running 31" tires, open differentials front and rear that kept up with me . Generally on snow. all terrains do better than mud terrains .

In the pic below, the Jeep in topic is in the foreground, while my Jeep is in the background.
