yeah, all the really gnarly obstacles are in the washes.
I did see it before 05 I remember driving a honda crv through there in 2000
I also remember running it right after it got washed out
that was when it was fun

I can get a run together anytime but it might be better iff we waight till it cools down a little
it was hot a couple weeks ago and I think thats why half the group left
at the end of noname

the pahrump valley 4wheelers are running lovell canyon and potato ridge tomarrow
Some of us are running the wash and I think we might have a chain saw so we can remove the dead tree in the wash so we can stay in the wash and check out the rest of it


If you think the pics from noname is cool heres a couple pics of jacks trail
this is the beginning of jacks

id say he could make it. there are a few parts that may take some manuevering but for the most part the trail is fairly easy. im completely open, then again the trxus mts and v8 help a bit. lol

well, considering that I made it with Sahara sidesteps and mudflaps on 30s the first time i did this trail and didn't bottom out, he could make it on a JK with 32s. surely a 4 door would be okay.

but it really, really helps to have disconnects on this trail, and not be totally stock.
