One thing I wasn't expecting was how I had to stay focused for basically the entire length of the trail. Due to it being narrow in some spots, on 33" tires I think there were some sections that I kind of just tried to choose the lesser of two evils. The rocks were loose so there was usually several large ones strewn about so that I couldn't avoid hitting on the lower control arms and other low hanging parts of my Jeep, like the diffs. So in other words, I knew about the big obstacles but where I ended up banging and scraping the most was in between them. I wonder if Shane had the same experience having the same tire size. I made it through with no damage; I think everything that banged and scraped was strong enough to take it especially since I went slow. However I was inspired by this trail to purchase some armor for the differentials and control arm mounts near the tires, just in case.
