Guys this is a killer trail, last time I ran it with my 80, I was blown away by the view. We got stuck having to wait with a whole bunch of heeps that broke down. As soon as I get a lift I'm going. You could probably make it with a prerunner, but you would be spinning alot. A locker is highly recommended for miller.

Biff from MUD! Nice to hear from you. Didnt you run this with a stock 80?
Just to let you guys know Biff had a very capable 80 before selling it to another Cruiserhead. Mad skillz I tell you.

Cant wait to see what you do with your FJC.

Re: Miller Jeep Trail Run 5/25/08

This sounds awesome... but is a lift necessary for this trail?
yes/no A lift is preffered to keep the under body of the Fj from scraping the ground.They are by pass routes you can take and avoid the Black Diamond sections.I've seen stock Fj's that have tackled huge obstacles.Its up to the driver.

In addition to what oscar has said:

I have not run this trail but know of others that have. Most important thing to have are sliders if you have a stock rig. And - good spotting over the questionable stuff.

Youll have good company with this crew.

How've you been!?? Wish you could make this trip. I am running with no sliders and a lift. Should be okay. Upgraded to All Pro skids up front.
