Im in the same predicament, wheel a stock no frills 1968 CJ-5 with 31x10.5 Goodyear GSAs  and tow hooks or if the trails will be a little nasty, a YJ with 33x12.5 trxus and a winch. HMMMMM Smiley

Ran our CJ5 with 31x10.50 BFG ATs open/open through all the trails there for the last 2 years.  Only tugged once (it was wet and raining).  I think I am bringing my 7 on 33s and locked this time... Cheesy

Relax Bruce, Oak Ridge is good times.  Roll Eyes Search "Oak Ridge Jeeps" on YouTube or Google, you'll see.

Hi Bruce,
Talk to some of your fellow Wisconsinites(?) who guided for us at Camp Jeep 2007.  They have seen the trails and can hopefully compare them to whatever you've run at home. 
Another question, did you help work on the Camp Jeep 2006 trails in Wisconsin?  I can help with a comparison there. 
No need for angry eyes, isn't wheeling (anywhere) more fun than staying home?

If when we registered for the Wheel In we marked Difficult, but reading this want to upgrade to Extreme, is that OK.  It sounds like maybe everybody runs everything anyway... is that correct?

Thanks,

John

Yes sir you are correct.  Everyone will basically be running the entire trail system (time permitting).  So your quest to upgrade will be answered...then taken away so to speak on the easy trail portions of the property. Wink
I'm not sure where/how the trail rating requests got into the registration.  I am assuming since this is the first of hopefully THOUSANDS of United Wheel-ins, they were preplanning for those venues who can realistically offer a true trail delineation like that.  I will guarantee you have a good time at Oak Ridge at this inaugural Wheel-in.  If the trails turn out to be to easy for you, you can always be thankful there is nothing to fix when you get home.  You can put your rig away knowing it is ready to go on your next trip.

Maybe I can clear up this issue...

I placed the trail rating on the registration just so there would be some indication of the type of trails you like to ride, or what your rig is capable of. This was only meant to generate statistics for the organizer of the event and help with organizing trail rides. The ratings were not meant to be related to any particular trail(s) at the venue.

Hope that helps.

Go to Youtube and search for "CJ-5 Hill" one of the more "xtreme" sections.

Here's one:

 Grin Pictures never do justice!  Sounds like there will be plenty of chances there to pucker up a bit!  My rig is by no means extreme, but I do like a challenge... I like the easy sections too.  Closing in on 2 months away... I am excited and ready for a little vacation!
