First Attempt wheel, Eagle Rock

Whats up guys. I recently lifted my xj 3 inches and put on some 31's and decided to try to wheel a little bit. I heard eagle rock was pretty cool so i went up there by myself lol.... ended up having to turn around after going up a few hundred yards because of it getting way to rocky and i didn't want to get stuck out by myself. I will attempt it again when ppl are with me. I want to get a locker but i need to lock and re gear same time and its something i don't feel comfortable doing myself so ill need to save and pay a shop.

Oh heck don't you like getting hopelessly stuck and having to walk 5 miles to get help?

I haven't done Eagle rock yet. Was hoping to get down there this year.

Eagle rock is a fun trail, good decision to turn around though, getting stuck by yourself is no fun .

Good idea turning around. Nothing worse than being alone & have something happen.

ALWAYS FOLLOW RULE #1!!!!

Me stupidly not following it, and this was just going camping - not even wheeling!

I am going to head back to do it just waiting for the right time to meet with my buddy and do it. I found out later i was looking up at the last stretch of harder trail when i turned around.... so it cant be that bad.
