2 trips in the last 2 months, I think Im making progess xP

So my jeep has an iro 3.5in lift with bilstein 5100s front and 5125 for rear with 31 km2s, so would my jeep be able to handle the trail because it looks hard as hell.

You'd probably be fine ninja, all I have is a 3.5 lift. If you came across an obstacle you weren't sure about you could either bypass it or turn around. One of us will be spotting through the obstacles. Having a spotter makes getting through the obstacles easy.

Daniel, years ago I bought a little old cheap Shasta camp trailer and stored it at the market on hwy 138 between I-15 and Silverwood Lake. It was only $15.00 a month to store it back then.

Anyways I'd drive up Friday night after work and pull my trailer out of storage and take it to the local campgrounds, lakes, or out to Bell Mountain when I wanted to ride my IT490. Sunday I'd just put it back in storage and head back to Bellflower. It was pretty convienant having that trailer up here.

Personally, I've been liking the smaller groups. Cover more ground in a day.

I like wheeling in small groups also. However If you leave it open to anyone that wants to go your more likely to have a endless supply of wheeling buddies. Lets face it, life starts pulling people in different directions and pretty soon your small group can become one.

For instance, you could get knocked up anytime and need to trade your jeep in on a mini van.
