Crystal Mill/Lead King Basin

Hi ya'll I would like some advise on Crystal Mill and Lead King Basin, I am fairly new to jeeping, and have a stock 06 cherokee (for now). Can my jeep handle at least crystal mill without bottoming out, or maybe even dare Lead King? We did China Wall this last weekend and were a bit over our heads and probably pretty lucky we made it out without damage. Any advise you can give we'd appreciate, we really would like to get at least to the mill. Thanks for your help!!

traildamage doesn't rate it too high, you should be fine unless there is still deep snow there

Just another old fart in a Jeep... watchout younguns!!!

There are some rocky sections on both trails that you might barely scrape on...but nothing to be concerend about. I've seen quite a few stock rigs up there. Beautiful area.
