I ran there several times stock on no name AT's and kept up with my buddies TJ on 33's. They just had to pull me off of stuff a couple times because of clearance issues. You just have to use a little more throttle to get through sometimes. Just stay off of the Orange trail and you will be allright.

You will be fine. If you don't feel like going through something, just drive around it. Many ways to get around most obsticles.

Not that I am trying to be pushy - but - I do have 5 rubicon wheels with MTR tires that would be good enough to wheel on in the for sale section..... Those would fit pretty nice on there as is.....

You'll be fine...as long as you aren't alone. Alone is not good if you've never been there before.
