Cj Holcomb creek or John Bull?

So cal guys, Which one would be "easier" to navigate this summer in a '72 CJ5? It is set up w/ARB's, D44s, SBC (carburated but set up for angles), SM-420 trans, mild lift, 33's, lots of armor.

It is new to me and I have not wheeled hard since '99 and that was in a Scout. I do want to stretch our new Cj's legs a bit and stay were it is coolish for the family.

Thanks for any input and advice.

WSS

once you get past the start of Holcomb, its rather easy the rest of the way.

Bull is the better trail. of those two.
Gold(something) was good has options that are harder
Dishpan is good can be harder depending on what line you take of the three I think.

Your locked so you should have little trouble.

you can run Bull and Gold in the same day or holcom and Dish.

Thank-you!

I looked at some u tube videos of the section you mentioned on holcomb. I'll take it slow, does not look impossible by any means.

Thanks again,

I ran John bull in my tj with only a front locker and a 2.5" lift. It was challenging but you'll make it

Holcomb isn't easy, but definitely not as hard as John Bull.

Gold Mountain is a nice run too.

Thanks guys! It was fun. Entered on the SW side (off of 3N16) and enjoyed the run a lot.
