Gotcha and makes sense. Washes are fun for all skill levels. It's a worthy trail for your future.

Saturday was a windy one!

Did 2 trails into the badlands just under Font's point - Hills of the moon and the slightly more technical Rainbow valley. They're both close to each other down the san felipe wash.

Made a Pinyon Mountain run this weekend. Took some work but I was able to get through the squeeze with only some passenger front fender and mirror rubbing. Think I could have gotten through clean if I wasn't running 3.5" backspacing on my wheels. Skinny JK's I was with just drive right through.

Nice job. I plan on going next weekend. People kept saying a lifted JL couldn’t make it. Glad to see it being done.

Make it through The Squeeze and only scratched my hard top slightly and popped off my fender. Easy fixes.

you sir have more balls than i. i took the jeep down that trail and got to the pinch and said nope. not in the 6 day old jeep lol. i will get my revenge when i get a lift and sliders installed
I have not read the whole thread yet. But is there a bypass at the squeeze location? I've seen some videos but it does not show past or too much around that squeeze point.

Thanks

No bypass, but if your Rubi is stock, its not that hard. I did it in my sport with Rubi wheels and suspension no problem. Its probably one of the few obstacles where more mods actually hurt you.

Only thing I’ve done is added 2” lift but what I’m worried about is the width. I’ve changed out the wheels to a -12 offset. So they do stick out about 2-3 inch.
