crazy question

I've got a stock 07 rubi. I havnt wheeled it yet other than the beach. I have a gone a few times in my old lifted XJ on some trails that werent rated. Long story short should I have any trouble on the easier trails? I do happen to like my paint job on this jeep and don't think the trees or rocks would look too great with fire engine red streaks on them if I can help it.

Go out with one of the blue groups and you will get the feel for the place. After lunch you will be able to work on some of the blacks. Everything at Crozet has a bypass, so no worries about watching someone do something and being able to make your own decision.

Hope to see you there.

Yes you can register when you get there, that is what I did last time. Cost is a little higher though.

It is a great place to wheel. I will be there Saturday.

I just registered. I went there last December and had a blast. I can't wait. Redmanchew, I will also be running the lowest trails. Hope to see you there.

I had a blast today! I had some issues on Boulder Alley but thanks to some great spotting and rock stacking (and about 3 guys standing on my Jeep rocking it) I made it. Thanks for all that put the event on (Great thanks to our trail guide in the red YJ for the spotting and help.) If nothing else, I learned what mods I need to do. First is relocate my shocks on my 8.8 swap, second is new tires (almost bald 32s are not a good choice.) .

Thanks again for your help and patience . I admit, I was under prepped with my worn tires. I am used to trail riding and really had no idea what could be done.
