check out these pics, its a Jeeps Gone Wild run. Scroll through, a lot of the pics are of the orange trail, you'll see a silver xj with black rims, he has 3" of lift and 31s

Im on 2" with 31's so you'll do better than me and im going. Just go on the 15th and you dont have to worry about being the only one who cant make a hill.

I did the orange trail at last month's Haunted Trails run w/3" lift on 31" AT's; only place I wouldn't go is the swamp (you'll know it when you see it). there is a bypass to the right. also, I hit my driver side rocker panel on an exposed tree root. it was driver error, not a trail issue (went too far left). when you're going up the first "big" hill, stay left and hit the gas! There were a few guys that took several shots to get up (i hit it in two!!!). Other than that, had a BLAST!!! I'm w/mhard, come out the 15th and get some help. Thanks!
