How hohum?  My son wants to take his new to him jeep out and wheel it.   

I'd say a basically stock rig on 31's could make it.  I don't remember anything challenging on that trail, but I haven't been there in quite awhile.  Slick Rock is also a pretty easy trail, but way more scenic.  The end is a bit of a challenge (assuming you're running north to south).

South to North is more challenging. The other Connor made it that way, in his budget lift and 31's, in his WJ. But that was a while back, and I think it's gotten a little more difficult since then.

I meant the end of Slick Rock going north to south.

You're right. I just read that wrong.

Trail hasn't changed much. Pretty much ho-hum going South. I always liked northbound better 'cause you can pick more challenging lines. Water levels were okay and mosquitoes were non existent today. The thunderstorm was impressive. Stock LJR got stuck a lot and ARB issues had a CJ-5 driver putting some thought into his lines. He did fine with open diffs though.

I remember sarah rose making it south to north on her budget lift with 31s. Deep water would be my only concern. Shouldn't be a problem if you have a buddy and a strap.
