i think you would need bigger tires, i have 33"s and my diffs drag in the snow. its a good thing i have lockers front and back so i plow through. on the trip saturday we are going to try to push all the way to ice house if possible. as of right now i have the smallest tires of the bunch. you are not alowed to go off pavement right now so its just snow wheeling on the road. it can get quite deep at spots. but now its probably a lot of ice.

ok who's in? we will be leaving georgtown around 10:45 to 11:00am. the bay area boys are eating breakfast at placerville and getting motel rooms at george town before we leave, so if they leave concord by 7 am i would think 11:45 would be the earliest to get all that done. plan on a long day.

that would be great, keep watching for trips. there might be some mild trail rides when the snow clears . i wouldnt mind doing a trail that leads to a fishing lake or something like that.

just got back from the snow trip. we left george town and headed to uncle toms cabin. we stopped at stumpy and was shocked at the vandalism that had occurred by some low life asshats. they shot up the bathrooms and cut down a tree over the boat ramp.i want to post pics but im afraid that some enviro nut will use them against us wheelers to further there cause to close us down.not much snow there now. we started hitting snow on the way to uncle toms. it was real easy wheeling. after a while at toms we decided to go all the way to ice house . i figured it would be a breeze, boy i was wrong! there were a couple groups on the road and on jeep broke an axle and steering box mount. and if that wasnt enough ,while towing him they riped his brake line off. the were with a small group and i gave them some brake fluid to use after the crimped off the line. we pushed on and caught up to another large group and the going was slow. the trail had not been blazed yet and they ask use to take the lead. the yellow toy truck in or group led and did a fantastic job of blazing the trail. he had 37" tires and just creep really slow. if his wheel would spin he would stop ,back up and then proceed again. if i got my tire off the track by just a few inches i would sink to my axles. we winched and tugged or rigs untill dark . as the sun was setting we hit pavement. the snow was way different than the previous trips. it was not forgiving at all.if it wasnt for the toy we would have never made it out. i really need more ground clearance.

this is where it started getting hard, it was like driving on narrow would planks, if you veered of a little you would sink, you can see us passing the other group here, i hope they made it out becuse there was no going back after some of those down hills.

Looks like fun. That snow really melted. You can actually see pavement at Stumpy. That really pisses me off when people vandalize stuff like that. Karma will get them though.

i like to go with at least 2 others if possible, just for safety. but maybe on a monday we could try to put a trail ride together. im pretty much open any day but tuesday, but i can arrange that to if needed.opens would have been a problem yesterday, my buddy with air lockers tried to run with them off and it was a no go. it was wierd the first part of the trail was so easy and the last wasa so hard.it would have sucked if we couldnt get through right at the end when it was getting dark. and then turn around and go back the way we came. thats what happened on or you bet road trip.
in the summer if you want to do a day trip or even a a 2 day trip, we could do some off the rubicon. i would like to get a 4 to 1 kit for that.
i havnt done slick rock yet.

Oh yeah i wouldnt want to go with only 2 people. To me the more the better!!! Lets try and set up a ride this spring or summer, and we can keep the CA BOYS (my little nickname for the group we can set up) updated and excited about the trip via jeepforum. I'm already excited.

Just let me get my hands on the guys that decided to install torx bolts on JEEPS!

well down the road lol once i get my jeep up and running i would love to do a trip up and i have a buddy with a cherokee that would probably be willing to go too. I want him to get an 8.8 in his rear before i let him tag along though because he is running 35s and doesnt respect the skinny pedal but im all in just have to get my front end back together
