Haven't been to the badlands in years and never with a jeep. I trailer mine cause im running all stock drivetrain 3.07's and open diffs. Just a precaution. Im building a hp dana 30 w/arb and 4. 88's and either an 8.8 or dana 44 for the back. Running a 4 in lift w/ 33"s mtr/w kevlar and winch. Went to the cliffs on jan 1st and it did really good.

I was there this past summer. Will probably be a little different with the snow and everything. Only thing im worried about is im still running all terrains. Will let you know towards the middle of the week if we are for sure coming down.

I could possibly be in as well. I don't want to go with a huge group just a few Jeeps. I have a LJ with 33 BFG All Terrains with everything else stock. Don't want to do anything to wild with possible breakage but something to have fun with.

Well the girlfriend just said she wanted to go so looks like we will be there. I havent been to the cliffs in probably 5 years or better. How do u think my all terrains would do there? Think it is about the same distance for me to either park. How many do we have going so far?
