I did it this summer with a stock JKU Rubi, heck I think it even still had the temp tags on... if that counts as a stock vehicle. Only drug in a few spots, but this was coming from the Red Rock side. I had the wife drive while I spotted, I just set her up right off the bat in 4l all locked and the sway bar disco'd. She rocked it all the way, then would not shut up on how she did it

I did it in the waggy over a year ago, made it through with zero issues. Only bruises I got was from backing my bumper into some rocks because my turning radius blows.

I used to baby my Jeep on trails until I got my first thump. I dropped and put a dent in my gas tank skid. After that, I really didn't care about scratches or anything. I don't even care if a bush scratches my Jeep bumper to bumper. Like becoming a whore after getting my cherry popped.

I meant a stock TJ. I think they came stock with 27's. What are stock JK's running? 31's? I'd love to have 4-dr JK. Sucks not having all the room and getting people in the back of a TJ is a pain.

I question if my old TJ on 33's would have made it, and that is only because of the open diffs... Heck I even wonder if I would get through now without a lift now that I added bumpers and armor


We really like the 4 door, it pretty much rocks. I used to leave the TJ home for the longer road trips due to space. Now our only consideration is 40+mpg in the tdi or 17ish in the Jeep.

Not to pimp my website too much, but check it out. For a list of trails I've done in Clark County, go here. Not comprehensive, and it's a work in progress, but here's a lot I've done.

I checked out your site. Many trails. Would u mind recommending a few that are close to Vegas? My girlfriend wants to go to Vegas, I wanna go 4-wheeling, so this is the middle ground. Haha. I'm just looking for moderately difficult trails for a day (or two) run in a JK Rubicon. Thanks!

A good days wheeling could be found by doing the Bitter Springs, Boathouse Cove and Anniversary Mine Roads. This will take you into the Lake Mead National Rec Area, but you get to avoid the toll booth going in this direction. Bitter Springs is easy, with a few obstacles, but takes you through some pretty scenic stuff with lots of places to get out and play. The Boathouse Cove Road is a bit more varied, you'll use your 4 wheel drive, and it take you down to the water. Anniversary Mine Road (particularly the western half) can be more difficult, plus you may need to stack some rocks to get past the midway point down in the wash. If you want to hike a couple of miles, head up to the narrows. They are worth the time and effort.
