damn, I think I am gonna have to back out. Since my YJ is down, I think 1' of snow will be too much for a DD XJ with only 30in tires, especially since it is my fiances lol. I know how easy it is to slide into a tree in that stuff, did it plenty of times before

I'll be heading up 131 and we probably won't get on the road until 5:30-6 P.M. thanks to my passengers. Should make for a fun Sat/Sun though!

EDIT: And Friday night.

Ill be spending the weekend at Boyne, on our way up friday ill stop off in grayling for a test run see how the lil jeep does. I just dont want to be that guy getting stuck all the time, or slide into a tree and smash it up (do have jayfab front and rear bumpers though). Im used to my yj, never wheeled a little cherokee and want to.play it safe.

Are the grayling trails on par with west branch, mostly 2 track with occasional mild hill climbs?

God I wish I had my jeep going...

You will be fine. Just a foot of light snow. You could bring a subaru.

You should do just fine, getting stuck is the best part of wheeling!

O im not afraid to.get stuck, ive just been.on trips where one jackass gets stuck every 10 minutes and it gets old quick

Maybe im just underestimating the jeep. Been a while since ive wheeled something close to stock. It does has fairly new 30" bfgs and posi. Ill be sure to air down. Ill probably still be down

For those backing out or thinking about it... think harder. I've been wheeling the last several days. The snow like TCxtreme has said is light. It's cold as hell and not slippery. I'd imagine those wondering if they'd have enough rig will have the perfect amt to have a slightly challenging run (the most fun). Like he said a subaru would have made it everywhere I've been this last week minus the rocks, etc that we went looking for. Go, and have a great time. And then post pics!
