On the pix it look like they were on the left side of the main trail that is if your coming from Lovell canyon side (back side).You really need 35s and lockers there..thats where me and BIL went a few months ago.I did run it with 33s awhile ago but i wont do it without another Jeeper to bail you out.

Yep Potato Ridge. It didn't help that his 33's were just shy of racing slicks . I'm going to say that was 90% of his issues other would be open rear. No traction in that loose gravel base and he was dug down good. We stayed in the wash pretty much the whole way. He did a good job of attempting some of the harder lines that I was taking. Sometimes he was successful, others i'm pretty sure the lack of traction slid his Jeep and moved rocks into places that I couldn't believe they ended up. Good times!

So this is what I did this weekend. Took my dog to LA, met up with a friend and drove 4 hours to Pismo beach. Didn't get a lot of pictures as it started raining pretty hard and I didn't want to damage my phone.

This weekend, I spent about 16 hours collectively driving my Jeep on the highway. Let's just say 32" mudders, RC lift, 3.07s, and the infamous TJ hardtop has me thinking...

JK rubi w/ hardtop, auto, and all-terrains.....
