Hey fellas, i just got my BB installed and my TJ for next couple of years will be DD. i want to wheel some. now i have been to Uwharrie back in 1995 w/ my Nissan 4wd truck. at that time it did great, we had no issues, and had a ball.
my question is, with the years gone by, can i still take my TJ DD down there, avoid the rocks, go easy on the skinny pedal, not tear anything up and drive it home?
right now from the threads i have read, i think the answer is yes, but i want to be sure. when the weather breaks, i want to load the wife and kids up, pack a lunch adn go for a ride to URE.
i would love to hear from people that have been down there lately w/ a stock or mildly lifted TJ.

Daniel is the only trail marked "Extremely Difficult" on the state maps, it has a loose hill climb on it. Other than that, Kodak is the only other spot to look out for, but that has a bypass that runs right beside it.
if its dry you can do anything there, if you want to beat it you could prollly do kodak, i saw a tj w/ stock tires and a bb just romp on it and bounce up one of the easier ines on kodak that was still pretty tough, and daniel if you pick a good line on the first few parts its simple and easily walked up, when its dry that is, did just about everything in my xj on 31" bfg at's but havent been there in rain yet

We did Uwharrie this past Thanksgiving, the trails are great. Anything there is doable for you as long as it's dry. For Daniel: SKINNY PEDAL!!! ..... by that I mean don't stop and pick a good line of course too. Kodiak has a bypass up the left side. We ran my fiancee's DD, an '02 TJ X with a 2" BB, 1" BL, BFG AT 31 10.50X15's, JKS Quicker Discos, engine/tranny, steering box skidplates, diff guards and came away with no damage.
If you don't want to go alone, which is never a good idea anyhow, go to the Eldorado Outpost in the morning, (many groups start out there) and see if anyone will let you tag along, most folks don't have a problem with this.
