Well this is actually my first trip there, so I cant answer the second question. I was hoping to get some people to go that have experience there and maybe teach me afew things about what my Jeep can do. As far as my setup, Check my profile. I am being trailered in though. Just in case I break ,I can make the 3 hour trip home.

Just saw your thread. I'll be there that weekend if you need a guide. I'm horrible with directions, but have been there a few times and can find my way around the place ok. I'll definitely run the creek trail and will venture over to the orange trail. Will also be at summers carroll, look for the black jeep with mangled fenders.

I may be able to go as well, this would be my first time off roading since I got my Jeep about half a year ago. I'm in the same situation you are, I want to see what my ride can do on 31" AT tire and no lift. I think I can do most trails and gave a great time, hopefully we can get more people together for this trip.

I ride a blue TJ with a black tubular bumper.

If I get my Ball Joints done this weekend I'll be there the 20th as well.
I normally start out running Green, over to quary, run yellow or white behind quary to creek, then usually hit Red & Pink right by quary entrance as well and then orange to end the day.

I may be in for this, depends on how this weekend at the Badlands goes. If all goes well I may try to come back up with a friend from work and his YJ.

I'll be there Sept 20th, if interested in riding trails, look for a Khaki Rubi w/ Clayton bumper sticker and blk powder coated moabs, and Hitman Offroad sticker.

I'll be starting w/ Green trail, then quary and then White or Yellow behind quary to the tubes, then probably Red & Pink by quary entrance and Orange.

Hey Chris and ODell - It's Joe and Jill! Chris, can your wife post or send us the pics from the trip? Our two pics of the jeep stack on the concrete pile were a little washed out. Thanks!
