My Favorite. Stopped for a quick driver change, and saw a photo op.

So the 20s can take some off-roading, if care is taken. Cool trip!

OMG. One of my favorites. Have you found the coke ovens?
I got lost the first time I drove through. Didn't get back out until 3am.
Bring plenty of water. You can be there for a day. Also it is better to have at least one other vehicle.

Not really. His are scared now from the rocks. The factory 20s spokes jut out right near the tire so they will very easily make contact with rocks, sticks, stumps, etc.

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...
