Are you referring to the one on Durch John? It wasnt too bad. Hell hill on Dickey Bell wasnt bad either. Daniel was really the only trail that was significantly harder because of the rain. The first ledge is rutted out worse than I've ever seen it. Still doable dry, but no tration to be had when wet.

Worked perfectly. Much better than the trashed rubi locker it replaced.

The detroit is quirky on pavement, but it is awesome knowing I have a locker back there that will keep on working no matter what I throw at it! Only selectables in the front for me though.

I think it's Dutch John, then dickey bell is the hill with all the loose rocks, I kept confusing the two "difficult" trails cause they both start with D and are two words lol

There was water running down the first ledge of Daniel if that tells you anything.

I never saw Daniel, my Jeep is not quite ready for it yet! But there were some spots that I would of been better off with a kayak than with my Jeep.
