SLEDGEHAMMER JKX Pre-run Dec 11th !!!

I am going to run Sledgehammer in my JK on Saturday.

This would be a good time to come out and see how tough it is.
All are welcome---
Test your JK and your skills-
It will be a "no one left behind", Everyone gets through no matter what. It will be a 'group' effort.

We can use this as a 'pre-run' for JKX.

We can use "helpers" too. So, if you dont want to run your JK, but want to come check it out, or possibly lend a hand--- that will work!!!

The trail is short (approx 1/4 mile), so walking it with the JKs is no big deal.


Meet down Boone rd, just past the bridge on the left at 9am Sat.

For those of you that dont know where it is or how to get there-- post up for directions.

Boone rd, off of Hwy 247 in Johnson valley.

WHO'S IN??????????????????????????????????????

I will be there this weekend. Thanks for posting this, now I know what trail to avoid on Sat.

Edit: If you get there before me don't steal my parking spot by the little quad track at the bridge. If you do you are going to have to deal with my 5 year old.

I would but I have done sledge about 10 times in the last 3 months. We will probably do either wrecking ball or outer limits. This is me:

I should be there around 1-1:30 at the latest. I will be just past the bridge, can't miss me. If you feel like doing some trails Friday, I am up for Turkey Claw, Jack north, and chocolate thunder or any combination. As long as I am heading back to camp by 5-5:30.

Looking for a spotter to bring along with me (other than a 6 y.o.) Looking pretty good; however, I'm still not running a spare tire, so I hope that won't be an issue (y'all are running 37" tires as well, right? ... I should be OK).

Great, George!

Yes- Boone rd is the rd going from hwy 247 to the lakebed.



I lent (is that a word?) out my spare set of axles and my 36mm socket to a fellow JKer last week, so I dont have my spares! I have a set of drivelines that I will bring.
If anyone has any spare parts-- BRING THEM!!!

Going to try to hook up with "Hammered" today to run TurkeyClaw, and I'll see you guys out there tomorrow morning at 9am!!!

SLEDGEHAMMER in the JKs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:grinpi mp:

It looks like myself and 1 son will be there at 9:00 am.

I'm gonna go and look for a used spare tire today ... hopefully someone has a 37" tire that will be suitable.

I don't have many spare parts that I can bring along, although, I do think I have a 35mm or 36mm socket. Should I be worried about my rear stock axle shafts?

Looking forward to some good weather and great wheelin'!

We are going to have a good crew!

You SHOULD be worried about breaking parts! But this will be a lesson in Patience! E A S Y Throttle (OLeg)LOL

I think the point of JKX (and tomorrow's run) is to wheel as smart as possible as to not break anything. Sometimes easier said than done! I wish I had my spare axles...

With our small group-- looks like 4 or 5 JKs- perfect- We will fix/winch/drag/call in the troops for whomever may need help. We never leave anyone, but this run is really a "all for one. one for all" run. We will all help each other get through.

CANT WAIT!

ps- I know the axle nut is supposed to be 35mm, but I have found the 36mm fits better.
