Yeah, from what I understand the trail is mostly just a scenic dirt road that winds through the back country, but there is some nice elevation changes and some historic stuff to look at. With any luck there will be some snow. Here's some quick info I found on the web:

Dirt roads are fine and I would be up to a class 2 trail with no problems I believe. Now that I have a bit of clearance I am looking for some things to do.

Vegas Trail Rider,

Buy a set of stock cherokee front springs, or get someone to give them to you for the cost of shipping after they installed a lift, and a set of stock springs from a 03-06 rubicon unlimited for the rear of your TJ.

This will add approximately 1" to your lift for basically no cost. I was running the budget boost, and it made a huge difference, and cost me like 50 bucks in the end.

Front with 32s and budget boost:

Stock 1997 4cyl rear spring next to a stock 2005 Rubicon LJ spring.


Dooooo it, you can often times find the stock parts locally, or like i said, on here someone will normally offer them up for next to nothing or just the cost of shipping. Lot of people dont want stock parts laying around, haha.

If you guys are down for sunday, I might be able to make it? We need to know for sure though. I have a buddy who just got a cj5 who would probably be down to go...

We can drive for a few hours and see how far we get. Maybe all the way, maybe not. The trail gets pretty high up, so i'm curious to see what the snow situation is like

Yeah, it looks like some crazy elevation changes though, going from 2000 to 6600 feet. Some sharp inclines in short distances it looks like.

I guess you never know til you get there?

Has anyone run the trail before?

I think the good Dr. and I are in for Sunday. Are you free as well? Maybe we meet on early Sun morning? Probably near some gas station close to the 95N before it leaves town?

I think we're both driving this time. Both our Jeeps work at the same time - what are the odds?

Sweet. Oh, speaking of towing, does anyone in our posse have a tow-strap? I have a chain and a tree saver that I guess we could use in a pinch, but still a strap would be nice.

Thanks for the info on the spring swap. I will start looking for those. Looks like you guys are planning on Sunday, so that leaves me out. Have fun.
