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!
