Bring plenty of water. You can be there for a day. Also it is better to have at least one other vehicle.
In my limited, we did the Montana mount trail-at least I think that is what it is called-and we stopped at the entrance, but didn't continue. We saw them from afar! That was maybe 6 months ago though. Maybe next time...
I think if I went again, I would get some beefier tires and steel rims. I posted these pics on jeepforum, and included pics of the two "badges" on the 20s. Nothing deep, and nothing that wouldn't buff/polish out.
I purchased "Arizona backroads & 4 wheel drive trails" on amazon and used that as my guide. Very easy, and recommend it to those starting out or not familiar with the area.
I was kind of surprised, the trail was pretty crowded, if you could call it that, on a Saturday afternoon. We let a newer rubicon pass by going the other way, and 5-6 modified wranglers were stopped about halfway through. Plus atvs and a side-by-side.
As far as the rims, as terminator said, they did not make it unscathed. Gimme a sec and I'll post the pics here...
