    How accurate is it that Cliffhanger requires 35+ tire size? It says the same thing for Gold Bar and I have watched 33s run it several times.
    And how come it gets taillights? Is it that tight?

    Same comparison. you are short enough that you should be able to stay off the wall coming back. Hug hard right and use the Doubler. I got hung up being too long, not enough crawl

    And you have 37s...
    :dunno:

    Those descriptions are written by jeep owners and are always conservative. I ran Golden Spike with a Cherokee on 33s and no lockers.

    I ran cliffhanger a few years back, open up front, Gov lock in the back on 35s. No real issues. I believe I got winched up on the big obstacle on the way back out, but it was to avoid body damage, not because I couldn't make it.
    It's not super difficult, but the views are stunning!

    I winched getting in at a ledge and at the big one you are mentioning. Because I could not make either.

    So did we settle on 3 days of pritchett and cliffhanger with @kgblazerfive and @Bent77 leading each day? I can lead people to the maverick and back each day if needed. (I will however use my GPS)

    I think @ktmoutfront mentioned something about taking a newbie group through Coyote Canyon.

    It's mainly for the trailer queens that don't want any body damage.

    That is very nice of @ktmoutfront to give up a day of hard core wheeling to take some new guys on a slow scenic trail. It's cool that somone will help them get their feet wet :) I hope to be as generous as him one day.

    I just sent the deposit check to the DOI/BLM today.


    And now that I have to lead a slow boring trail like that, I quit.

    You could always follow Brandon in the ORD buggy, he always takes the easy lines.
