How hard is deer valley?

Could a WJ with 2" BB, 31" duratracs, skids and sliders make it through?

I camp at blue lakes almost every summer and always wanted to try it, but dont want to get suck...

If not, can anyone recommend a good place to camp and off road with the jeep I have?

Last year CMARJEEP did it with about the same set up. I only had to drag him 2 or 3 times,

I know this isn't tech, but what's a BB? As for your question, you'll never make it if you don't try.

Ben's that's sweet how it just plays the sequence one after another, I've never seen that. Usually you gotta post up a bunch of different links.

Here's a tip for you... air down. The tires on the two YJ's in the video's were way too hard. Better traction, easier on tire and easier on passengers.

FYI, mine were at 12 psi. On those aluminum wheels if I went down to 10 or less it liked to slip the bead too easy.

They didn't look anywhere near low enough, the tires weren't flexing a bit. Might want to check your gage. Regardless, you can go lower. The 35's pictured we at 12 psi and I routinely run 3-4 PSI lower in the rocks without any problems. Of course that is on my gage...

Skids and sliders will be your friends with 31's. Have a hilift or another vehicle to help you over the bigger rocks.

Got it, I was thinking like a body lift, but since they don't have a frame I was all kinds a confused.

There were three YJ's. And mine, (the white one) was down to 10 PSI. I also won't go any lower, for fear of popping a bead.

You should be fine, I did it sveral times when I was running 31's w/ a 2-1/2" lift. There are several camp sites on the other side off Highway 4. You can always go to Lake Alpine and camp there very nice. And if you are feeling like you need more off road due Slick Rock. I will be on Deer Valley the second saturday in July, maybe I will see you there.

X's 2 on Slick Rock, the entrance to that is actually right off a set of campgrounds.
