I think thats a great site and dont get me wrong but its too busy and too spread out. And i know there is a section for each vehicle type and i dont mind going wheeling with some yotas and what not but its just a lot of fun to go up to a trail with a bunch of other jeep guys ya know. And it seems a lot easier for us all just to communicate here

soo lets just say i have been working my butt off so i can go wheeling with you guys this summer. Im trying really hard to get money for a lift, and some bigger tires. I am thinking a rubicon express 3.5 lift, with 31 M/T's would this be enough to do some easy trails with you. my dad and i used to 4 wheel, but hesold his bronco and 89 cherokee, and i have been dying to go ever since. Finally got a license and a jeep so i will do watever it takes to get up there.

i have a deal for you guys that want 33" tires. i have the set that came on my jeep. the po had got them shortly before i bought the jeep. they are mounted on some rims. if you buy a set of 16" tires for my dodge truck ill give you the tires and rims. you get tires and rims for the price of just tires . id put them on my dodge except my dodge is a different size and lug pattern.

Hey Bob that last trip 'til dark sounds like a similar trip recently. Wish I could have hit that one. The fuel pump problem had me down but last night got it worked out and I'm back in the game again. Hope to hit the trail soon.

I'll be hitting the Rubicon as soon as the road is clear. (it's closed for snowmobiles in the winter). Last year we went for it in the first week of May but only made it to little sluice. The Rubicon in the snow is a blast!

I went to Frank Raines OHV park yesterday with some Jeep Forum Bay Area Guys. It was a blast. Lots of steep hill climbs with ruts from recent runoff. Very high pucker factor on lots of trails due to the steep trails and very little room or error. I talked to the Sheriff out there in his JK rubicom unlimited he said that in the last 5 years 3 Jeepers have DIED out there. Anyone without a capible rig and plenty of experience should use extream caution. It's easy to find yourself in a bad situation out there. I helped some guys recover thier rigs off one of the more difficult trails. The first guy in an coil spring YJ with 33's and open diffs blew a radiator hose going up the hill. His friend in a Tj with dana 60 front and stearling rear with 40 inch Iroks was trying to pull him in reverse back up the hill. The YP slipped into a rut and HC'd on the diff. The TJ then broke a hub. When we came over to help they were facing each other with about 2 feet between their front bumpers. I went in and took control of the situation winching the Tj back up the hill and anchoring him with my winch line. The tj then winched the YJ out of the rut. We then fixed the hose and refilled the radiator. The hardest part of the trail was further up and the Sheriff's said the YJ wouldnt make...So we lowered him back down the hill backwards using the TJ's winch. The driver didn't have much exp., was hard of hearing, and was stressed out to the max. Then the to make things worse the winch cable broke. Lucky for the guy in the YJ the cable slowly unwound and frey instead of letting go in one snap. Seriously the guy probably would have died if the cable snapped and we went slidding backward serveral houndred feet. To remind us of what could happen there was a mangled rusted jeep tub in the ravine next to the trail RIP to the driver. It was difficult to stand due to the super steep incline of the hill I dont think I would tackle anything much steeper. So we tied the winch line to the YJ past the break as the trail was to narrow to move any of the jeeps past each other. We had to lower the YJ move the TJ down then I moved down in my LJ to reanchor the TJ. We had to due this twice so the YJ had to go backwards down this hill about 300 feet. All this took about 2 and a half hours. It was a very challenging recovery Thanks to everyone that helped.

I've never been but the last time a couple guys from my club went down they tool their little kids and said it was still pretty "tame"...did everything in the part in like 2 hours and was not really worth the drive up...maybe these are more "hardcore" dudes that compare everything to Johnson Valley or Rubicon or whatever... dunno...

Not too much hardcore stuff at Frank Rains. There are a few places where if you mess up your rolling a few hundred feet down the side of the mountain.
The harder trails are long steep hill climbs with ruts and loose footing. Fun for the day, not worth driving over 100 miles for. A few years ago a large part of the park was closed due to a fire.

I'm looking for a new place to go this weekend. Are there any good trails open below the snow line?
