Meg 10/12

I know Braden has a group started to go to 5 mile pass this Saturday, I am not super confident in my Jeeps' ability to do the trails they have planned so I am trying to put a feeler out if anyone would be interested in doing MEG this Saturday?

Rattlesnake is easy I've done it in my Stock Yj with no issues , constrictor isn't bad either there are bypasses around majority of the harder obstacles I've done it several times in my XJ going over the obstacles When it was open/open and the sports where you can't take a bypass a spotter will get you around I run constrictor on 31's with open diffs several times. Your JKR will have no issues.

all the reviews online are saying 5/5 lockers needed, i dunno haha you guys said Mineral Basin was easy and that destroyed me. i'm sure it's my sad driving abilities as well. but you've been wheeling with me and you've seen my Jeep so if you think i will honestly be good i'll most likely make it out then. are you going Tom?

I can afford to go out. I am going to try to make the mineral trip on the 26th. I don't think you'll have an issue. Braden is good at spotting people through stuff.

You have to take the online ratings with a grain of salt also. They sat you need a locker and 33's for rattlesnake. The only obstical I have not done on constrictor is eagles nest which is a 6' tall wall I won't attempt it until I tow my rig there an have a cage. I usually turn around at that

Rattlesnake is like MEG. Easy stock rigs can do it 90% of constrictor is flat hard packed dirt. I think it's easier then mineral

All but 2 neither are bad. One is a little narrow but easy the other looks bad but stay right you'll walk right up.

Take a look at my XJ build thread, majority of the pics were taken at rattlesnake and constrictor. The link is in my sig.

On rattlesnake there are bypasses around every thing so that trail is as hard as you want it to be. So you could run that trail and park your rig and ride along on constrictor
