Claytonandson,

I'd love to take you up on that offer. I just got a stock 05 Rubicon and looking to take the stepson offroading a bit. I'm a novice, but looking to learn things the right way.

There is a Crozet run this spring that I'v just been informed of. Any interest?

Crozet open wheeling weekend 4/9-4/10
Wondering how my stock Rubicon would be on the Easy blues? I should have my side rails on by then.

Also wondering if 31" Goodyear Wranglers count as "non-street tread".

Don't mean to derail the thread, but can anyone tell me what the laws are in MD for bumpers? Do they have to be as wide as the vehicle? Seems most of the bumpers I am interested in are stubbies in one form or the other.

I have not been there before but would think you would do fine on the low blues. Rubi's are very capable even in stock form. GY wrangler MT/R's would qualify as "non-street tread". They just don't want people showing up with bald highway treads.

MD bumper law is 28" to the bottom of the bumper i believe but have not heard anything about width of the bumper. I'v seen tons of jeeps with stubby bumpers (mine's somewhat narrow as well) so I don't believe it's an issue.

Interesting question. I'll ask the Deputy at work today . . .

I'm not so sure about the 28" height either. There is a big debate going on over at one of the Jeep forums. Apparently in Maryland, it is illegal to change the suspension of a vehicle at all, but enforcement seems to be selective. One thing I read which appeared to be legitimate was that the max height is 20" measured from the ground to the bottom of the frame. It did go on to say that a class "M" (?) vehicle can have a max height of somethig like 24" or 28". Sorry for being so vague there, but I dont have it in front of me.

BTW, Claytonandson - Your rig looks fantastic.

i had a feeling thats the area you were talking about i have not been back there in years. i just checked on google maps and it through me off becuse i rember getting to it from the 90* turn on radio station road and now it says the main dirt roads in there are called jaybee ln. i would like to go back out there some time ill pm you
