well i ought to find out next week. we head out Friday. aim to be at the Loon Lake trail head Tuesday morning. im hoping with all the bfg stuff and the jamboree coming that the trails in decent shape. we have completed it twice before, but it is a different trail each time. i think the JL will give it a good run. keeping her pretty will be the tough part.

We're both retired.
Yes ! My new JLUR is more capable than the built CJ7 I rolled on the Rubicon (Scotch induced) before they had a model named Rubicon. Don't drink and drive!

Wish some clubs enforced that more. It's disappointing when every other rig has a cold one between there legs.

For anyone who has ever done this trail, or has an opinion ;), do you think the new JL Rubicon stock, with steel bumpers of course, would make it?
On a related note, is there anything like this in the NE US or Eastern Canada?

Stock Rubicon on Rubicon trail, lot of good support crew for spotting etc.:

I saw that one, lots of screaching skid plates... Very impressed by how well they do though.

Check out the lite brite postings on youtube. They have a new Rubicon that they beat the hell out of on the trails in CO.
The under carriage really got beat to hell, but otherwise they did great. They did keep adding bigger tires as they took on the different trails..
