Hey all...
Was in crown king this weekend, was a jeep weekend... Jeeps are damn good vehicles but was hoping for some vw represention.. was a bug with no body, swing axle, and a "clutch cable is disconnected ' security system.. anyway, was curious,

Has anyone made it up crown king the 'back' way----ie lake pleasant route??

just curious.. and if so, what features of your build were the most beneficial??

-Brett

The Virtual Jeep Club was doing a run up the road. There were supposed to be 50 Jeeps. Most of it is easy but there is some stuff that is a challenge. You need ground clearance, tools, spare tire(s, bottom end torque and very good skid plates. I'll be doing a two day trip up the back way this Saturday and Sunday exploring the area.

He must of had weak ball joints to start. My ball joint Baja went 90% of the places you can see in my videos. In the two years of extreme off roading every weekend I only broke two used CV joints after installing an 1835 , slightly tweaked a beam, had lug bolts constantly come loose and sheared the steering box bolts. I upgraded to Z car axles, captured the steering box , installed T-2 diameter wheel studs. Maintaince and pre running an area is key to keeping your ride in one piece. There is a mile or two of this trail that would be brutal on a stock Baja.

Thanks for the info guys--

Implanning on getting a baja soon (not converting the bug, just waiting for tax refunds...) but I think I will keep it a bit milder for now and learn a bit first... it seemed like a damn hard trail to run...
