Ill be there. I volunteered this past fall as my first jeep thing and artfully crafted that parking lot if I do say so myself. In fact, my jeep is the first on the left! As much find as I had volunteering, I think this time around I will go as a spectator and really enjoy walking around now that I know a lot more about Jeeps and mine is a little sexier.

I know. I was devastated when I realized my back bumper covered my rear recoverey point. Not this year!

At least you had a back bumper lol. I had ripped mine off a week or two before pulling someone out, and didnt think to get a hitch from a junkyard until day of, and they wouldnt let me just hook to the shackle.

So what are the requirements? does it have to be a hitch?

For the rock piles you have to have front and rear recovery points and either a cage (wranglers) or factory roof (XJ, WJ...)

For the mud trench you have to have rear recovery point and either a cage (wranglers) or factory roof (XJ, WJ...) It is recommended that you also have front recovery points but not required. Sometimes pulling a stuck jeep forward in the trench is better then pulling it all the way backwards.

Leaf spring shackles can not be used since they are part of the suspension, chance of pulling the leaf srping from the Jeep. The recovery strap can not be wrapped around a bumper. If your bumper has recover points, somewhere to attach a d-ring, those can be used. If you have a receiver hitch recovery shackle point that can be used. A ball hitch can not be used. Any factory recovery points can obviously be used also.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks a bunch. I wont be tackling the rock piles. I saw an XJ get hung up bad on the undercarriage and have to be pulled off. I will however be ready for that trench this year. Thanks for the guidelines!

Rocks are being rebuilt over the summer. We usually redo them every year so check them out, you may want to try them. It also looks like there will be more rocks coming in so that should help make things better for the wide range of people that come.

That's probably not the rocks' fault. The spotters last year were pretty bad.


Also, is the small rock pile going to be bigger than it was last year? Nobody even used it. It was just a bed of rocks, not really challenging, even for the smallest jeep.

Hmmm. I thought the spotters were great. Deep Woods Extreme guy guided me over the big rock pile no problem and I'm only rolling on 33's. I guess the driver bears some of the responsibility . . .

I was reading a lot of the comments on their FB page and everybody said they sucked. A lot of more than capable rigs were getting stuck. I also heard they were eating sandwiches while trying to spot.

But let's face it; we always blame the spotter when we get stuck or roll.
