This is the tree the CJ got hung up on... twice. Other than this, he did fine.

Here is the issue with OFR. It's an old county Rd that comes out of the state
forest. Over the last 30 years what was once a few mudd puddles turned into
the big water hole. If you are coming UP the road stay to the left and do
not go way right. People have said this is a protected water hole but the road was there first. Some people in the DCR, State of MA are allways trying to keep people off that road. They have not been able to shut down this road.Back in 06 The NEA said to turn around ,since then we have changed
that statement and ask that you drive ALL the way to the other end.
In the first part of the road you must stay on the road and DO not use the
mud hole bypass this is private land. Keep off.

The tires are 32's, but the lift Im not sure about. I wanna say 3", but could be wrong. He did fine over the trail for the most part. He got hung up on a couple spots, but it was mainly traction issues.

We just ran old florida road fo the first time this weekend. It's pretty clean, no down trees, and easily passable with a unlocked TJ with 31 mud tires if you take a little care. Nice spot.

Only easily passable when you don't drive over the large obstacles. I saw no pictures of any of the rigs on any of the real obstacles. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to you, those go arounds are on private property and taking them will surely get the road shut down as the property owners see that people are NOT actually driving on Florida Road but on their land. They make a stink at a town meeting, and the road gets closed.

OFR is NOT easily drivable with an unlocked rig on 31s.
