    How deep is the water crossing at Coney Flats? What would you say is minimum recommended mods to safely (dry-ly) navigate? Thanks.

    I ran it in a stock 2012 JK in 2013. Water is not the most difficulty on this trail.

    Your rig sounds fine. Will have a few tight turns. Plenty of ground clearance.

    Did the two water/mud pits get filled in? IIRC they were deeper than the pond (Coney Creek) crossing.
