Ran the Rubicon last weekend. I took my Samurai (propane, 5.12's, 6.5-1, spool f/r,31 TSL radials). Had a blast. It was the 4th time I had ran it(3 previous were in my Jeep). The trail definately was the most difficult this time(probably because I don't have power steering yet). I ran the majority in 2 low and used 4wd only when really necessary. We decided to go from Loon to Rubicon Springs on the first day (10 hours) and then just kick back at the Springs for an extra day before heading up Cadillac and heading home. We ahd a total of 6 rigs (5 Jeeps and my Samurai)
I Ran Rubicon last month with Seapahn and a couple of folks from ROF. I agree the trail was much tougher than the last time I ran it '96. The locals say it's due to the influx of rock buggy type vehicles with 40's & bigger changing the complexion of the trail. Still a blast though! I wish I would have joined you guys for this trip.
We have a trip scheduled for next year at the same time (17-19 JULY 2009) start preparing now. There will be more details @ www.myjeeprocks.com . The real plans for the trip will be starting around the first of the year.
