A stock rig can run the mud flat road (Owyhee Back Country Byway) unless the snow on the west end is still too deep. It is just 104 miles of desolate county road. I would recommend decent HD tires for protection against the rocks in the road.

Thanks again TW, much appreciated.

Count me in for this! Especially if we catch everything blooming. I love scenic drives like that and I'm sure the wife would love to tag along on that one. I was just out in the desert off Pleasant Valley yesterday and with all the rain we've had, everything was already greening up and blooming. I imagine that time is coming in the next couple weeks...

Cheers

I got my rear springs hung, but am having a hard time seating my axle on them. And haven't even touched the front yet. And that's after 8 hours of work lol.

Any takers? Beers on me after!

Did you get your lift done?

I did, thanks for asking
Tested it all out yesterday;





SYE should be here Saturday, so hopefully by Mon/Tue I'll have my new sye/cv shaft in and getting rid of the T-case drop. Oh and tires should be showing up Monday too! Woot.

I feel like the Idaho section is so quite compared to other regions/states. We need more communication. Make it feel more like a community up in here.

Cheers

Just a reminder for all of you, the Idaho X Rocks first event of the season is this Sat. Just off Track Road in Nampa-about 1/4 mile south of where Kuna road tees into Track Rd. Some serious rock crawlers to watch.

Wow, from all the response so far, looks like we're gonna have us a couple of nice trips this season.

Sparrows: Nice looking YJ!


TW: Would you say the best part of that road is between Grandview and Jordan Creek road that heads up to Silver City from the south, or is it from Jordan Creek out to the Oregon side?

It's been ages since then but I favor the western half of the road, most especially when you head NW and get in the upper elevations. Ideally I would do it over a three day weekend. Start in Boise, hit the east end, camp somewhere west of Poison Creek. Camp again near the Oregon border. Go into Jordan Valley, refuel and take Cow Creek road into Silver City-over the summit and back to Murphy and home. If time was important, you could hit Hwy 95 at Jordan Valley and be back in Boise in 2.5 hrs.
You will not get over Silver City and NY summit before Memorial Day weekend due to snow. (They run a Cat through the big drifts the week prior to Memorial Day)

That sounds like a real nice trail ride t.w. I am looking at maps tonight and planing to do that run this early summer :-)

Yea, me too. Thanks for the input Don.

I'm probably going to make a day trip out of it though. I remember making all those runs down to Leslie Gulch and Succor creek and back with Whpony in one day and those were probably similar if not greater mileage. Doesn't mean we can't start out at the same time and place though.

According to the Owyhee Sheriff's Office; the road is officially open as of April 10-yesterday. They could not say if you could make it all the way through or not but it is legal now.

I have heard of folks making it in one day. I would be interested in that, and later going back to camp and explore side roads and such as time permits. I would probably skip the Silver City return loop to save time for a day trip.
Leave Boise fairly early, hit Mtn Home to top off fuel and then Grandview, start the road and end in Jordan Valley, refuel if needed and return home through Marsing and Nampa.

This is more what I was thinking. Probably pick up the pace a little in the areas where the road condition pemits and the scenery is bland, but slow way down where the scenery is great or the road to rough. We'd scout areas for a future overnighter.

Thanks for getting the closure status also buddy.
