    So you're on the equivalent of 33's. You should be good for some trails in the Hill Country. I'd love to see your Jeep. Hope you can make it out sometime. I know it's a haul from Houston area, but come out, camp, wheel, get the feel for driving offroad, it would be fun.

    :-/ ... ugh. Cant make it on the 13th.
    My new to me 05 came up with a bad precat P0431 last week so I'm going to replace both precats asap and get that problem solved.
    My 97 has been giving me misfire codes since I got it back from the tranny shop in Sept. Thought I repaired the problem but another misfire today.
    I can't take either jeep on this trip. Maybe shoot for Nov possibly.

    Bummer!! Was looking forward to seeing the blue Jeep. Hopefully you will get it sorted out soon. Maybe even have a few upgrades for next trip?

    Absolutely @b0xcar - a 2 inch SL is in the immediate works to be followed by a 1" BL.
    I put new plugs in this week, man that 4.0 is powerful, just have to get thru this precat bank2 snafu. :-/

    Yes, they're like 32.6"x12", I'll make it up there eventually. Yes I won't to make the weekend out of it and camp out and other. I've been to Burnett before just not driven the LJ that far yet. I can't get up there soon enough.

    Hidden Falls meet up was a blast. Winches came in handy as everyone in the group had to be winched at one point in time. Today was definitely my favorite wheeling trip by far! FM TRO has to be the best trail out there. I believe it took us about 3 1/2 hrs to complete. Exhausting trail, but a great one!

    I didn't get a chance for many good pictures as the creek beds are just too narrow.

    I was actually able to get out there at 10 after work this morning. Met up with @JMT and we started off on Snoopy Falls.

    Further down the trail, JMT found a nice hole.

    He was very persistent...



    Time for recovery vehicle #1. We thought about winching straight out but... I noticed a pretty solid tree to the left and figured a snatch block would be best used. Worked great!

    Decided to back up and take the high ground.

    We tooled around a little more and then head back to Area B. Met up with Nate and his XJ. From here we decided to head out to FM TRO. A very long trail. Really long, for ever long, did I say long yet trail?

    After FM TRO we took Penthouse up to WildCat Mountain for the group shot.
