Day 12 – Poison Spider

Waited around at the Poison Spider trailhead but after an hour decided to take off on my own. Not always a good idea being alone on a trail, but I did the trail last year and knew what to expect. Or so I thought.

At the one mile mark a Park Ranger told me the UTVs have been tearing up the trails so expect it to be tougher than last year. Well, I know there are three tough spots, but I didn’t have any issues last year when I rode a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Sport S, with 33″ tires, and a 2.5″ lift.

I went ahead, and ya know, he was right. This year I found myself stacking rocks on the three spots. Well this year I have 33″ tires, and Rubicon model comes with a 1″ lift. So I’m 1″ less lifted than last year.

Ok, so 1″ lower, and a ripped up trail requiring me to stack rocks. I think I’ll put some money on Aleve stock. Time to decide which 35″ tires and 2.5″ lift to get.
