Re: Cleghorn Adventure a success
Is that joke? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] ALL we did was the trail sections. It was great. We had the most trouble getting the stock Grand Cherokee through the Jeep trail, but we got it. I think most of the problem was the anti sway bar was still attached, it was running on 29 inch Remington Wide Brutes, and this was the drivers first time offroad. The XJ did great. There were a could cases where the atached anti-sway bars kept the 30 inch Bridgestone Duelers in the air, but a little gas solved that problem. My YJ led the pack most of the time, and I can tell you that seeing these stock long wheelbase vehicles keep up with me in my Money-Pit YJ made me a bit jelous, but there we're some advanteages I had(I never got highcentered!). It was good fun. Problems I had we're my shocks arent nearly long enough so they keep my axle from dropping another 4 or 5 inches which would be a big help. The Grand Cherokee guy is getting some coil spacers next week, and the XJ is getting a 3 inch lift kit soon, and we plan on heading back soon. I plan on having a winch or an OX locker by the next time we go(and definately longer shocks). It is a fun trail. I like the off-camber area with the dirt wall riding right on the driver side of the car. I think that is around the first or second criss-crossing of the fire road, near the Big rock in the middle of the trail.
