Yeah thats what heard, I haven't been up there in the last few months, I've been running into acouple problems, but not as bad as yours. Nice jeep for 250 bucks, I spent 500 on the XJ I'm building now. I heard some of the work trucks up there got their windows shot out, so if you go up don't bring a gun with you.

I go up there every once in a while....i havent been up there for a while though cause my engine blew......but to be honest as long as you can legally carry your gun....i would take it up there with you.....you have no idea who shot those windows out....those cross airs might be on you next.....some of those shacks up there are a little creepy

Here are some pics from up there: More in my build thread in sig

This is at the begining of the steep hill.
