How much longer would it have been if we would have kept going to Nimberwill church?

Instead of going left up that road you saw me on you go right and its about 10-15 min of crawling down then a right at the crash site then about 30min back to paved roads. If you go left at the crash site you go down old bucktown road, but I've never been that way.

Nice, after we got to the top we came back down and went to the right and ran through the mud hole. But then we had to come back fast because my oil pump went out! :thumbsdown:

I was looking online today and found a map of the Dawson Forest WMA. There are trails labeled as 'Jeep Trails' in the map. Just wondering if anyone has ever been there and if so how was it or is it still open?

Hi all. Just got a new 2013 Jeep GC Altitude last weekend, and looking to get it a little dirty.

It's 100% stock, with those OEM 20" wheels and tires. No recovery options. Might swing by 4WheelParts and get me some tow hooks at a minimum.

Think this area is passable for me? Might go Sunday, if the wife allows.

I would wait a little while. That place is a hot mess right now. Give it about four days to dry out and you should be fine. I would take a trail buddy if you go. Faint be too safe.

Good to hear there is someone actually using a new jeep for what it's made for around here. Tired of seeing new lifted and stock jeeps that will never even see mud or even dirt. High five lol

Amen my brother.

Back in 97, I bought a new TJ. That day, I drove it out to the San Diego desert and ran it along some cactus'. Scratched the he!! out of it.

Never worried about scratching or dinging it after that!

Don't think I'm going to do that with this ride, but, it's a Jeep, right!?! And I own it. It's gonna get dirty!!!
