On October 15 22, we meet up at Flying J off Frasier Mountain Rd to stage running the Lockwood Creek & Miller Jeep Trails . We had a total of 7 Bronco’s make it out for today’s run.

The weather was perfect all day about 74 degrees & not a droplet let alone any rain once we arrived at Flying J. This beautiful weather would last all day, despite several of us encountering light rain on the way to the meeting spot. After a quick drivers meeting & line up were off right at 9 AM as planned (Que Hannibal Smith quote) :cool:

Participants were:

Felix808 White 4 door Badlands Sas on 37’s

Silentmordacai Cyber Orange Badlands 4-Door Sas 35’s

Mark Nunes White Outer Banks 4-Door 37’s w/ winch

SoCalG Red Black Diamond 2door on 32’s

Bellboyfab 6-Speed Carbon Grey? Charcoal 4 door Black Diamond 33’s

Korobok Area 51 2 door Badlands 6 Speed 35’s

_ocnorb_ 2 Door Bandlands Sas Area 51 35’s

After airing down at the trail head for the Lockwood Creek trail, it wasn’t long until the trail started to give us it’s best. Steep off camber climbs & descents with a few rocks thrown in along the way which might have tested the strength of a few seat covers :whistle:. Traffic on the trail was mild. Seemed mostly 2 sets of jeeps running in front & behind us most of the day & a pair of dirt bikes. & various groups of hunters out spotting. We all made it through Lockwood Valley trail with minimal hang ups due to everyone looking out for each other (y) . We had a couple of stream crossings & the trail actually runs through/ down the steam. It was great to see water still flowing from the spring. There was one slightly deep section that was crossed. We all learned at the lunch stop that the front skid plate can scoop and hold a lot of water as we watched it continue to drain out :unsure:.

We stopped at lunch around 12 PM at the Miller Jeep Trail trail head which we shared with a couple of Jeeps. We relaxed & looked over each others setups & Jawjacked a bit :cool:.

After kicking back for about an hour it was time to get back to work & see what the Miller Jeep Trail had instore for us. The trail is basically a 3 mile steep trek up Alamo mountain with plenty of rocks that seemed to increase in size & volume as we went with tight turns along the way. Pick the wrong line & the trail would let you know by getting you hung up, slammed in a hole or a chance to test your armor :oops:. There were about three large rocky sections that were no small feat & took a bit of spotting, but everyone made it through fairly unscathed & without it bogging down the group too long. Great job guys!!!(y)

We arrived at the top of Alamo Mountain at 3 PM. & formed the trucks up for a group shot & began to breathe easy . Then someone thought it would be a good idea if aired up at that point. This proved to be a poor decision that was made too soon judging by the missing fillings in my head :sneaky:. Now I remember why we usually aired up at the Off Road Park, it smooths out the ride tremendously :unsure:. After the long drive down the mountain, some of us made a few runs in the Off-Road Park while others felt they saw plenty of real challenges on the trails vice the manmade ones in the park :cool:. From here we parted as friends & went our separate ways while looking forward to meeting up again sometime.:)

I appreciate everyone that was able to make it out. It was a great day of adventures for all. Everyone had the right attitude & had a great time (y)



War wounds were minimal, but here’s the list:

1 vehicle had broken the clips on a Licensee plate retainer area on the rear bumper- Duct tape to the rescue ;)

Some pinstriping for most if not all- Take your resale value & shove it! We are going to Use/ not abuse these rides and enjoy it! :cool:

A few under carriage / skid plate scrapes- Meh :sneaky:

1 rock rail tested- test was passed & proved not to be the line for the rest of the group.

Took one for the team. Besides that is what they are for ;).



My bet is that most of us made it home before dark.

Unfortunely, I was not able to get many photos but hope that those in attendance will share theirs.

First off, thanks for the roster and specs. Much appreciated to understand the range and setup capabilities. How were the Black Diamonds with the non-beaded 32's and 33's?
Great write up. Thanks for posting

Thanks.
There were a couple hang ups but they all did fine with proper line selection. Drive tall was the motto of the day. There was concern earlier about the 32's being on 18" rims so he didn't air down as much as some of us.
