A bunch between my old Rubicon and our Cherokee Trailhawk

I'll be driving my '16 Power Wagon. We will likely hit Wolf's Den, Fall's Dam, Rocky Mountain Loop, Slab Pile, and Saw Mill. Depending on how the PW does and my friend's WJ, we may hit some of the 3 D's as well.

What kind of upgrades do you have on the PW? The hardest parts of rocky mountain loop are now closed. someone supposedly found arrowheads at Kodak rock and Budweiser rock. Dutch John's trail is getting rutted out where the tight high walls are so it's perfect for a power wagon. Dickey Bell has been getting a little more rough every year. I believe I've seen ram4rocks go on all trails but Daniel on 33"s. I'm not sure if he had a lift on it or not.

I may be able to go but it's questionable. If I go it would only be part of the day on Saturday. I should be able to let you know tomorrow.

I've got rock rails and 37's on the stock suspension. We will be there about 9AM.

Just now saw this, sorry for the delay! My Wagon was still sitting stock when we wheeled! I was able to do all but front side of Daniel stock on 33s. Rock sliders would be advisable for back side of Daniel and for Dickey Bell hill climb though! (it has been a while since I have gone without sliders so, I can't recall which exact points are worrisome) Definitely need to do the easy side on main Dickey Bell hill climb when stock, that's for sure! Looking up the big hill on Dickey Bell:
left side initially (right side would be easier but, a Power Wagon is too wide for the tree spacing)
mid hill transition
right side for final ascent
I take this path^ even now on lift, 37s, and sliders. My truck can do left side but, that doesn't mean it should, LOL!

A stock Wagon drags belly a LOT (about every erosion control berm) but, with our beefy skidplates, it is fine!

If you are free July 24th, I'll be up at Uwharrie for a chill trail ride!
