What I am trying to say is, we shouldn't expect to be able to take our "wider" rigs on every single trail in the PNW...just like the old timers (for lack of a better term) shouldn't expect to be able to navigate every trail in the PNW with 31" tires, short wheel base & no lockers.
Old timer... I like it. Thats me to a tee. I totally agree, different rigs different trails. I love to get off road with something a little more than a flat gravel road with 4% grade. But don't really want to spend the time and money it would take to prepare my rig for some of the wilder uh, roads. Found a perfect spot up in Elbe Hills with my grandaugher, we both had a blast. Hope I can find it again.
"93" YJ 2.5L
Hardtop, Full doors. which are off as much a possible. Stock steel wheels with 215/75
Replaced with Canyon wheels with 30x9.50 GSAs, Then bought a set of the
Goodyear TA KOs. Added a winch, a 2.5" lift, and fire extinguisher.
Thats right, I'm the guy with just enough jeep to get in your way.
LOVE MY YJ
