I think Fordyce is harder than the Rubicon. Iv'e been on the Rubicon with open diff Jeeps and Toys on 31's that have wheeled through no problem. I wouldn't even think about Fordyce without 33"'s and locked front and rear. I'm not saying it can't be done, I just wouldn't do it. 35"s would be better. Just ask mtngoht on this forum. He has made 2 Fordyce trips with our club on 33"s, and the last one claimed his engine due to deep water crossings.
Here are a few pics from the past couple of years:

Don't get me wrong, the whole trail isn't like that. There are just a few spots that will take some skill and a built rig to get through, not to mention the possible deep water crossings. (depending on the flow of the river).
It's kind of ironic than most of my body damage and broken parts have been on the Rubicon, not Fordyce. I think that I am just more complacent on the Rubicon and I try all the hard lines.

There are a couple spots on Fordyce that just flat scare the piss out of me. one being the ledge before Sunrise Hill, the other being the water crossings at high flow.

Deer Valley is a good trail. I did it twice last year. You can either do a long 1 day trip or a 2 day trip.

Might have an issue with the 2nd water crossing. It runs about 2 feet. The rest of it as long as you have front and rear hook points and a good tow strap I see no issues.

I will probably plan a trip to Deer Valley. I am guessing in June. Make sure the snow is gone. I already have plans for 3 weekends in May. I am busy on fathers day weekend too in June. Maybe early June.

Same here, I've got to work Father's Day. We've got the Tour of Nevada City bike races in town that day...... We all have to work.
