-Connect, i'm not sure if the MJ can do it, but im sure he will probaly try. from what i remeber from last time out it looked like it would be very hard for a stock rig to make it. you would definatly need all your skids(especially rocker protection) but depending on all this rain we have been getting we might not make it through the waterfall. this is just a quick trip out to have a little fun. it would be great if you could come for a few hours with us.

-Nick, i was thinking the same thing about the water. hopefully it wont be too bad, but it could make things really tricky if the rocks are all wet :eek:. climing that switchback could be very interesting ;) after the storms too.

Connect, if you plan on going up the waterfall then no a stock XJ will not make it, if you want to go up the other way then i dont see any reason that you wont make it unless its very muddy out there, which it very well could be.

Heres a Few pics of the last run we had out there

I think looking at it that just about any 4x4 could make it... the question is how much damage did you want to get on the way over. I know I held my breath as Eric was going through when he was less than an inch from the rock wall.

I feel my Cherokee would have made it. There were more than enough spotters and enough extra rocks to move into place, I just try to keep my vehicle as dent free as possible, so I chose not to. Rock crawling isn't really my thing, anyways....

amen to that nevada xj... haha.. i looked under my jeep for the first time the other day after steves loop with everyone.. i should take some pics.. the reason why i had to winch was that i cought myself on one of my body mount posts... it is totally bent now.. but it looks cool... and i dented the hell out of my crossmember even some more... but i dont care about that stupid thing anymore... its been beat to shiznit since a month after i bought the vehicle.. and it is its own damn fault for being so low to the ground.. bad jeep design ( and my tcase lowering spacers haha)... nonetheless, i look at my body damage and smile, feeling a little bit better after reminiscing back on the good times i had doing it...
some guy came up to me the other day at the bank looked at my fender and asked me if he could bend it back straight.. i laughed and told him that he could not pay me to let him fix it.... i would never let anyone fix it!.. i love how it [email protected]~!! i chuckled, as i walked away thinking back on how much fun i had at hunter lake, walking off of a rock, straight into a tree and giving it that beauty mark


chicks dig my rig... its 'hardcore'
