I just went to the cabin yesterday! Now when you say the whole loop do you mean going to the mine after the cabin? I know it gets pretty crazy back there and dont think i could do that section.

I would feel better on 35s, but don't have the $$$ yet. :bawling: You think AEV will ever have a sale on their stuff? I see BFG has sales/rebates off and on. :confused:

AEV will never offer a sale on there stuff:laughing:

Come on......you don't need 35's for this trail

Jason

jdemonto
05-02-2009, 06:09 PM
I figured AEV didn't typically have sales, but you never know.

You gona take off your 37s and put on 32s for the run?

I thought about it.......................NAW:devil:


I love 37's can not give them up!

What is this trail like to a rookie like me? I have the suspension and tire size but not the experience yet. Can I do this trail without more trail time? If I can make it, what else would I need besides the obvious? Thanks for the input.

Post up your rigs equipment, likely if you meet the min requirements then its up to you. I have patients and no other plans so we can take our time.

BTW I like the wheels...clean looking jeep! The only way to gain experience is too hit the trail. Your welcome if you like to join us.

3 more open spots and we are booked

If we get done is at a reasonable time we can hit San Tan Flats for dinner

Hey all,
I had a great time even if I did'nt make the whole loop. What a great place to play and there were great views all around. I hope to try the whole loop after improving the Jeep a bit first, not quite ready to tear up body panels or underbody yet. Glad to hear the rest of you made it out ok and I look forward to wheeling with all of you again soon.

Jason and guys: I had a great time with you all even know I broke a few items and did not make the whole loop. I made it home around 6:30 even after I turned around so I am glad I made the decision. It was a great trail and a lot of fun. Only wish there were less BUGS next time. They were everywhere. My Jeep will be fully fixed by this Friday and we are heading up North this weekend. Hope you all have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend and I will try to get some pics up soon.
