I'm starting with having it balanced and going from there. It kicks in at 35-40 MPH and the vibration is very powerful. When it first happened I thought I was losing a wheel in traffic.

What time do you guys think things will be done? my fiance has a doctors apt with a midwife at 4 and I want to do both things tomorrow but need to see if I can make it all fit. Apt is off eastern and 215 so I'd probably need to be heading back around 230ish at the latest - just don't know the trail length and all....

Shoot, just remembered last time I went out the weights 4wheel parts put on my tires are the clips that go between the rim and bead. I never got those replaced, also I need to locate a 33in spare. I really want to get out but I just don't have the time to get the Jeep over to 4wheel parts for a spare and replacement of the weights...

I'll keep an eye on the board and hopefully I'll be able to roll out with you guys next time. Now that I have some time again its time to find a jeep group

PM me anytime you guys run in the future. Rolling on 33's with a 4in lift, no lockers though or under armor - didn't really need it on the soft ground in the Pacific Northwest...

Just some info about this trail:

You dont need lockers unless you wanna do things that need lockers. Theres go-arounds for everything there. We are leaving around 9 from the Chevron station. We'd be back to that area by 1 to 2 at the latest (with lots of stops, playing around, etc). I just plan on taking it easy since I havent been wheeling in quite some time. Id rate this trail a 2+ out of 5. All you need is a bit of ground clearance (stock Jeep-Ive seen a Subaru wagon out there) and to be able to weave around the bigger stuff.

For those of you who are interested in going up to Logandale (like a mini-Moab for those of you who dont know), Im going to set up a trail run for the 23rd of October. We would run the ****ter Bowl Trail, the trail leading up to Bronco Falls, and Confidence Hill (Im not sure what the actual name is, but thats what I call it). And if we still have time, Id run you through the Rock Bottom trail. Ill set this up later on (beginning of Oct).

For Logandale, you can run through it on a stock TJ, but youll scrape and scratch here and there. Id recommend some lift, larger tires, and at least one locker. Just to give you reference, Dr Marneaus has been through ALL of those trails with 3" of lift and 32s (no lockers).

Stock JK Rubi
