On 5/15 at about 10am we all met in Mullan, Idaho where the Jeep was unloaded off the trailer and the Broncos aired down. From there it was just a few minutes drive to the trailhead. 3 Broncos came out, my BL on 35s, a CO BL on 37s with 3.5" lift, and a GC BB on Sasquatch wheels. Unfortunately after about 10 minutes the BB learned that Sasquatch wheels do not a Sasquatch make, as he had no lockers, and he turned around when he realized the difficulty level.

The rest of us plowed onwards. The trail was very challenging at times. Loose smaller rocks, fallen trees, large rocks, tight turns, and lots of driving in the creek. I struggled with a few fallen logs, I didn't have the belly height to clear them and had to be pulled off twice. The lifted 4 door and the Jeep had no issues there. At the very end of the trail was a waterfall that was the only thing that denied our Broncos. The Jeep on 1 tons and 40s went through fine. The 4dr almost made it, I didn't even attempt after seeing him try.

Then we turned around and ran the trail in reverse. Going downhill should have been uneventful, but then my luck ran out. As you may have seen in my other post, I managed to suck up a large rock into my wheel well. It trashed some brake components. We removed the wheel to get it out and tried to continue but my brakes kept locking up and I lost the use of my swaybar disconnect and front locker which made it very challenging and I needed several pulls before we got back to the dirt road. At that point my brakes we smoking so we stopped and pinched off the damaged line and bled both front calipers, it let them release so I could drive home.

Regardless of the damage, it was still a very fun trail that will test your Bronco. Highly recommended.

Oh and a PSA: If you spend a day in the woods with your soft top flipped back, don't be surprised if you get a tick shower when you close it. My poor wife picked half a dozen out of her hair.

It's frustrating that a f%cked ABS sensor would disable it, there's no reason for that. I'm sure it's part the disabling over 20 mph feature though, if it can't tell how fast you're going it shuts it down.

The front locker being disabled was a much bigger problem though.

Sorry about the damage! Was your BL on 35’s a SAS or non-SAS with 35’s? Mine is a BL non-SAS that’s leveled, and I’ve been trying to figure out which lift/wheels I’ll eventually get.

So did you steel a few wheel studs from the spair or the passenger side?
The studs were fine, only took the wheel off to get the rock out, it was wedged pretty good.

Sorry about the damage! Was your BL on 35’s a SAS or non-SAS with 35’s? Mine is a BL non-SAS that’s leveled, and I’ve been trying to figure out which lift/wheels I’ll eventually get.
Non. No rubbing issues. I have a 1" level to put on but I don't want to go higher than that, I'll just live with the low belly.

I should have invited you. It started as a Bronco only event but we added the Jeep last minute because he knew the trail.

No worries, just giving you a hard time. Maybe next year when I have a Bronco...

I think there is going to be a lot of people that figure this out the hard way. Sad thing is the money spent on fancy rims, a lift, and new tires is more that just getting Sas in the first place. Tiny axles and no lockers is no bueno with oversized tires. That is just meant for mall crawling.
