Its not the same country. Snow mountain is at a much higher elevation than Indian Valley. I rode with Goldielocker about a month ago when she took the Jeep and was doing a pre-run for the Snow Mt. run. She couldn't complete the run because there was too much snow on the north side of Snow Mt. Snow mountain area is all mainly pine trees and oaks. Indian valley is mainly low scrub brush.
She is going to try the pre-run again now that it has warmed up and the snow should be melted by now.

Okay you're right the vegetation is different, however the terrain is very close to the same it it's dirt and rock roads. With trails that lead off very similar to the area of Indian Valley or Cow or Hull or Bartlett. The terrain is all the same in Lake county. With the exception of foliage.
Depending on the rout in and or out we should try Love Lady Ridge. It's a steep loose gravelly climb, it can be fun. The gravel is under the dirt and it makes it very "interesting." I've seen stock rigs make it with open diffs when locked rigs couldn't you just never know how it will go. Cause you made it once doesn't mean you will make it next time. And with every rig it gets harder. Just a thought. If life will let up enough I am planning on going this time.

Hey Goldie,
Thanks for the link. I have been to Stonyford years ago dirtbiking. Looks fun. and yes that was me that got seperated from the pack.
IVR--I was waiting for the rig behind me and lost the guy in front. Went to find the guy behind me and he was gone. So much for being the good samaritan.
plus my !@$%!! antennae for my CB kept falling off.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

Thanks! those are very cool too. I am putting mine through a few changes. I removed the Jerry can mounts and converted them to hold Roto-Pax cans. Installed shocks, they did not come with them from the factory.
Next going to convert it to a 3 axis hitch. I have to have the hitch ready by the slick rock run.

I just put a torsion axle under mine. Just got a top make for it, but don't have the gas shocks mounted yet or painted.
Here are a couple of before and after pictures.
