Jeep Trip to Holcomb Valley, Big Bear

On Saturday, Scott invited us on a Jeep trip up around Holcomb Valley in Big Bear. We explored a bunch of trails and got a little lost. Here are the pictures.

mmmMmmm... what's that brown stuff in the air? I haven't seen that in awhile. ;)

Looks like fun, you need to upgrade your Jeep so you can roll right over those rocks gardens.

That's smoke from a fire. They don't have those in Nevada. Dirt doesn't burn.

Oh yeah.... I'd have to spend 5 or 10 grand to get to the next stage (axles, lockers, spring-over lift). That's going to have a low ROI in terms of fun, so I'll just have to be happy with what I've got :-)

Apparently dirt burns.

How much would lockers be? You could traverse a ton more terrain with lockers and not lift, couldn't you?

I could put a locker in each axle for $500/ea, but the stock axles are too weak. I think that they would eventually break on the trail. When you lock an axle, you're capable sending twice the amount of torque to a single wheel when you're on rocks.

What suspension/shocks did the yellow jeep have?

I am a person who owns a jeep and hits trails on a regular basis. Unlike you I go by myself and I have no knowledge of anything mechanical (yes I am a female) We have a awesome rock garden in this area. I went over part of it but I had no spotter so didn't finish.

I'm not sure about the suspension on the yellow jeep. He was not with us. He just happened to be on the trail that day.
