This was a last minute invite to a JK Forum trailrun. All the rigs I know or work with are all JKs :wallbash:. Anyhow here are pictures since thats all anyone ever wants :coffee2:.

This trail was an old wagon train trail back when settlers were first coming to the puget sound area.

This trail would be rated at 2.5 going from the rating guide.
I will post the non rig pictures first just so you can see the beauty of this place.

Nice. I used to wheel w jk-forum guys all the time but they all went to jk-freaks cause the owner of jk-forum is on par vertical scope.
I hate to advocate weird chemicals, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone...but

Nice thing is the four door jk is really similar to our dimensions but we can turn sharper.

The problem with the Trailblazer is, people think you know what you're doing.
