The Cliffs Difficulty?

I haven't been to The Cliffs in Marseilles Illinois yet but I'd like to check it out since its only 70 miles from me. How crazy are the trails there? Would I be ok in a TJ with a 2" BDS lift and 31" Destination A/T tires and open diffs? How about my buddy's stock Ranger FX4? He's on the stock 31" BFG A/Ts and I think he has a rear posi.

I really dont think your going to have an issue at all. Just stay out of the deep stuff. Plus when its really muddy there its actually quite easy... When its dryer there everything can be a challenge...

Id be willing to trip out there with you both if you going soon. I haven't gone in awhile. Im right in naperville

Depending on what trails you run, when it's muddy (which is most of the time) it can make things interesting. I've only been there once when it was dry and most of the trails were pretty easy then.

Some of the trails are tight & technical as well and the trail map is kindof hard to read & follow.

Maybe take that and flip it around.

When the Cliffs is dry, I find it to be a hoot.

When it's muddy though, those hills can be quite the challenge, and the muddy areas are getting deeper.

Second that, when it's really muddy its close to impossible to get out of the ruts .
