Rausch Creek PA Wheeling With 5.9L ZJ, TJ Rubicon, Exo-Caged MJ, Lifted XJ

My buddies and I went wheeling over the weekend up at Rausch Creek Off-road Park in Tremont, PA. It's only 1 hour 45 minutes from my house which is nice. This trip had been in the works for a few months. Most of my buddies were spending Friday thru Sunday there. I just went up for the day on Saturday.

Normally I focus on taking photos (Nikon D2x and fun glass), not video, but I wanted to test out my new Canon HD video camera. In this post you'll mostly see photos & videos from me, but some videos and photos are from my buddies who were there as well.

Rig lineup:
-Jeep Wrangler TJ: Rubicon, lockers/geared, 35's, Skyjacker long arm
-Jeep Comanche MJ: 35's, custom exo-cage, bumpers, etc.
-Jeep Cherokee XJ: 35's, front bumper, not a care in the world lol
-Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ: 5.9L, 4.5/4.75" lift, 32" MTZ's, Tomken Rocker guards, FourXDoctor diff guard



I arrived around 9:30 to see a packed park. I've seen it crowded before, but the line to sign in was out the building, down the ramp, to the parking lot. AKA, insane.











The first trail we hit did some damage to my doors, even with the rocker guards.

On-board:

Exterior:

After that was winch hill with the Exo-Caged MJ and the XJ:

We then headed back out on the same trail as before. It's a fun trail in either direction:

Moving on to some other connector trails, mostly blues with some blacks and a black/red:














Once we got to the red/black hillclimb things got a bit more fun:







The climb videos...

Crazy nice JK:

The XJ:

Exo-Caged MJ:

Chevy Blazer almost flipping:


After all that excitement we moved on to some more connector trails...

TJ & XJ:

Hardcore rocks in the XJ:

Another buddy in another XJ who joined us on Sunday:

Exo-Caged MJ on Yellow Jacket Ridge:


Then we got to the Quarry. It's nothing amazing unless you try "Shoot the Moon".. then it gets a bit serious...

The XJ up on 3 tires:

He broke the ears off his rear driveshaft:

Then had to use his FWD to try and get down to a recovery position:


Some photos from the Quarry:
















Hill climbs out of the Quarry:




The Rubicon showing you why lockers are awesome:


Random other photos and videos from the trip:









Damage report:
-XJ: Broken rear driveshaft ears & broken passenger side axle shaft
-MJ: Nada
-TJ: Nada
-5.9L ZJ: Driver side LCA, tie rod, diff guard, doors:

All in all, another great Rausch Creek trip. Looking forward to repairing the ZJ, adding some new skids/protection, and heading back out!
