The trail is awesome! Probably my favorite at R&V. I was also in that group, watching my buddy in the small XJ was quite entertaining, he had to beat on it hard to get it through there and he payed the price with quite a bit of damage. I highly suggest staying off that trail if you dont have a winch, mine saved my buddys jeeps multiple times.

Yeah...38's and lockers to make it half way comfortably. My jeep was running piss poor after about the first half hour of the day, it sounded like a 14 horse Briggs v-twin running on one cylinder. Good times, I can deal with shearing the bolts off the rear end, I'm just glad there was a bypass not too far ahead.

I need to go fix it a bit/ A few guys went in a winched some rocks and logs off the trail so they could get threw, Just if they would have put them back after passing would have been nice. Or build bigger and then try.

Wow Ron, that sucks. It's one thing if things get pushed around as rigs struggle. It's totally another if people move things just to get through.

Either go over it or around it. But don't move it!

Once again, thanks for all your hard work. Now, if you would just do the one thing I keep asking for.

I was there earlier, but did not run that trail. Checked it out and it looks even more nasty now!

Yes, that is my setup and I ran it over the weekend. It was a lot of fun.

Big Ugly was a tough go this weekend too. The ledge is getting pretty high.
