Chase.. sounds to me like the gearing needs an overhaul kit. Did the person who regeared it know what he was doing? That's one of those things that needs to be precise or goofy stuff will happen.

Stock axles, horrible drive shaft angles, top never taken. Probably because it to tall. Haha and never gets dirty. It does look pretty good though just not built to wheel.

What are you talking about, construction sites? The only real spot is the cliffs.

Don't let people scare you about the cliffs. There's a lot of guys (mostly on other forums) That say the cliffs sucks because the trails are "too tight" or you run the risk of getting "body damage" too easily. 1) I went to the cliffs for the first time a month ago and had a blast. Needed a change from the badlands and that was a decent option. We camped out there and ran the trails at night and had an even better time. 2) if you are worried about damage... why the hell would you wheel it at all?

It honestly isn't that bad. We had a Guy with us running a cummins diesel truck and he made it through the trails just fine. Some people just have no clue how to drive.

That is so true. All the trails have ruts that are perfect for the jeep width and you stay in the ruts and you will not hit trees. So spots do get a little tight but that's on the hardcore trail or if you get on to a atv path. I haven't had anybody damage there.

If you go to the Cliffs watch out for this hole on trail #1 (easiest). I could've went around, but wth I had to try to get thru it... lol I ended up going down further instead up forward or back, so we pulled the winch.

That was actually the worse part about it for me! those ruts are so deep in spots.. its like you dont even need a steering wheel and are on a roller coaster.. it just takes you wherever it wants to go. Part of my day i spent trying to steer out of the ruts but it was next to impossible!

LoL! Ive made it thru that section before, but i didnt have enough momentum this time... I'm working on a couple two tree tings for the jeep. After that it shouldn't happen again... Although, I must say it wasn't that bad at all. I pulled my winch and was out in about ten to fifteen minutes.... No big deal. FUN!

Any chance I could get in some of this? I am downtown but if you guys have something out in the Bartlett area, that would be cool. Just got my XJ this summer. No lift, just 235/75/15 M/T tires...Would that make it through anything you guys are doing?
