This is a trail that has gotten harder over the past few years. 6 years ago you could do it with a stock wrangler with only a few areas that were challenging for a stocker. Now it has gotten harder. My recomendations on Chinaman's is a minimum of 33" tires and a lift of some sorts. Lockers are not required but you will want to disconnect your swaybars. After talking to him it sounded like you had decided against running it though. On sunday we are going to go over to Taylor park and do Italian Mountain and some other parts in the area. Will be a fun trip and a full day trip too. This should be fine for stock Jeeps and will still be fun for the bigger ones. For those coming along we would like to meet at the City Market parking lot at 9:30 so we can leave by 10:00. Gymguyjeep is meeting us on the other side.
For those meeting up with me here is a pic of my Jeep
yeah, i've decided against Chinaman, all of my more modified rigs ended up dropping out last minute - so i have 2 stock Rubicon's with me (JK and a TJ) and neither are into damaging their rigs.

thanks to both of you guys for leading us on Sunday! we'll see you at the City Market at 9:30AM Colorado time!

Sorry we missed out today... hope you had a good run. We ended up just running hermit pass this afternoon once everyone made it to camp finally. Was a nice easy but scenic run, and not far from camp.

Yea you missed a good trip. I put on 136 miles round trip from my house. Lots of scenery, some playing, and the wife didn't get mad either. It was a good day
