squeeze is about a 3-4 JEEP trail. the main wash can be done with small lifts and no lockers. the other stuff takes quite a bit more

http://www.cataclysm.net:8080/oldsite/Trails/View.asp?T=26
this is a copy of the trail from the VJC trail site

Squeeze Rock - Sycamore Canyon
Trail Rating: 4.5+

While i dont doubt taht some areas of it can be a 4.5 (certain lines and trails near it) i dont think it actually deserves the 4.5 rating.

4.0 on the shnipey scale

Bring the yota out. Ill show you some fun stuff. Ill try and keep your dent free body off the rocks :P

Man I wish I could make it but I made plans to head out to Box Canyon with my boys. To let my oldest drive. I havent been out there since I blew up my power steering. Oh what the hell I am a definate maybe besides D owes me money.

I'm SKEERED cuz Shnipe is dangerous on the trail and abusive the the rocks

JCSXJ
10-09-2007, 08:29 PM
I picked the "I'm scared" option but...........want to go. Never wheeled out there before. I'll post up later either way. The wifey is leaving for Cali on Sunday, just don't know what time yet.

You might want to scout it out ahead of time. I was out that way last Friday (10/5/07) and its changed a lot since the last time I ran it. The 'water hole' has a lot of water in it and a muddy bottom, I guess, and elsewhere boulders have been moved around. I walked the water hole by-pass (up over the rocks) and I could not see the line that you would take going that way - assuming anyone has ever gone that way. I would guess that the rating has gone up by at least 1.

SHNIPE
10-10-2007, 08:55 AM
the bypass is doable. it just doesnt look like it. There are a few steep drops and soem ridges to ride but it can be done on 33s with lockers. If we have to go up and back because some cant make it its just as well. No biggie.

SHNIPE
10-10-2007, 08:56 AM
oh and im NOT dangerous!!! Ive never broken anything that didnt get me off the trail and ive only scarred a few rocks! Theyve scarred my jeep more:D

10-10-2007, 10:41 AM
Good luck to you. Be sure and take some pics. :D

10-10-2007, 10:45 AM
Make sure you have Shnipe take you up to the left then back over it the other way. Its a blast! :)

10-10-2007, 07:19 PM
*** i guess i'll show. last week i didn't make it to the trail so this is a redo.

i must warn that the trail has slightly less challenges than it did before the last monsoons. and the highline might still be the only way around the mud hole.

SHNIPE
10-10-2007, 07:28 PM
then its a good thing i dotn have my jeep! id prolly just end up testing the cage again! Im sure now that ill have lockers ill be just fine. Itll be good to see ya ROC your bish matty!

lilbluej

10-10-2007, 07:57 PM
I ran Squeeze a few months ago (night trip, really cool). I did need to get a slight tug off of one group of rocks. Since then, I've gone up 2" in the back and 1" in the front, locked the rear and disconnected the sway bar links. Think I can make it with with my upgrades even though its tougher?

Its a heavy truck but the only problem I had was getting the opposite corners light...now that I'm locked and more flexible, I don't think that will be as much of an issue.

I need more pictures of "real wheeling"

SHNIPE
10-10-2007, 08:02 PM
cant say you wont tag a bit of body athought its possible to make it cleanly through the whole thing. I doubt you will make the bypass around the water but we can see about that when we get there. I say come out and youll have fun!

10-10-2007, 09:47 PM

Sorry, I wont make it on th 14th, im coming down and camping it on the 15th and running the Squeeze or the upper portion of the creek on the 16th. 350cj5 has to work otherwise we were kinda planning on coming...wouldnt be any fun meeting Shnipe without his Jeep. I would love to watch the resident flop king of azvjc do his thing.

10-11-2007, 06:29 PM
ok so i was trying to fix my driver rear shock and i now have two stuck bolts (and no shock installed).....one was broken off in the nut, and the other one is now stuck in the nut...

so does anyone want to help me drill these out sometime saturday so that we can all have fun on sunday????

Thanks
Keith

edit: ive been driving it around today, and it doesnt seem to have any really really bad driving aspects.....so i dont think this will be a deciding factor for sunday's trip....so i will prolly see you guys there.....8am at bush and 87 right?

SHNIPE
10-12-2007, 06:23 PM
yeah 8am on the bush and 87. Youre missing a shock on one side? Do you have your springs captured? Hope you dont have any other issues. We like to make sure you make it out there.

UGROWUP
10-13-2007, 02:27 AM
Why is it I had no say in this what so ever? This is the first time I have even seen this post and I'm already roped into going. I guess I shouldn't have told Shnipe I wanted to go in the first place!

NJSurfCowboy
10-13-2007, 02:27 AM
yeah my springs shouldn't go anywhere....hopefully..haha

hope to see you guys out there, im gonna change my tranny and t/c fluid tomorrow which should be a quick thing....but we all know how stuff can get out of hand...

Yup no choice. Hey at least you get to have my girl ride in your jeep. Im just that guy thats diversifying your jeeping experiences :D Its a new adventure every time i go out... even if its to my favorite place.

10-13-2007, 12:47 PM
so all of the people that checked the "i'm scared" box aren't comming? or did they do that to be jackasses, and are going to be there.

10-13-2007, 12:55 PM
no clue. We'll just leave by 830 and the rest that show up are screwed. :D

10-13-2007, 03:14 PM
You know D, I would say to have Belle bring a friend but sadly she doesn't have any that I would be interested in. Oh and I don't think Richard is going to be able to make it. Something came up with work for him.

SHNIPE
10-13-2007, 03:15 PM
someone stole coke bottles? uh oh! I thought they were free!! yeah ive been trying to have her find some chicks at work but she says theyre all not good enough for you :P

UGROWUP
10-13-2007, 03:19 PM
Well yes someone did steal coke bottles but that's that the issue this time. And Belle told me the same thing. Something about the girls she works with all being not good enough for me. I still wonder what that means really.

had a great time even tho i didnt get too run :( on the way in me and shnipe were in my rig (never a good mix) we were driving threw the wash talking about how i need a SYE then there was a little sand ledge he says bump it so i go up and over it pull out my rear drive shaft eff the splines all up so i pull it out and we go on are way then once we are in squeeze cliff got on one of the obsticals and poped his rear axle. He drove back too his trailer and off he went. Then it was the 3 YJ's left and 2 of them driven by matt and ryan went up and over the water bypass and took the other way out. So 4 of us got into corys rig drove out and i decided i wanted to play around in the little rocks well it ended in a pretty cool flop not too much damage was done just lost a window and got some new dents...

I think Ryan and I were the only two not to eff something up. Oh wait... I did lose my rear view mirror driving down Shea before we ever got to the air down. Does that count? Prolly not. It was a blast tho. Shnipe got a few good pics and a vid of Cliff busting his axle and of Glenn's flop. That was fun just to watch. The little Mexican kids there thought it was great. I couldn't stop laughing. Then of course it was Cory's recovery service to the rescue. I should have charged all the stuck people 5 bucks to pull them out. Could of made a bit of cash today.

Man I'm sorry that I missed that. Cory the rig looks good with the lift and tires did it perform as expected? Glen your going to break your toy if you keep abusing it like that or are you just trying to hold down the fort until D is back up and running. I found out what the problem I was having with my rig too my rear end is starting to go out again, "I need something other the a d35

UGROWUP
10-15-2007, 05:38 PM
Heck yeah the jeep preformed great. Now I just ditch the 35c and get some lockers. Then 35's and I'll be set.

But then again I'll have to get a SYE and tummy tuck and Winch and oil pan skid and and and. Well the list just goes on and on.

Were you able to get the shaft out ? It was the rear shaft that broke, right ? Stock ? Carrier is OK ?

Great pic's and videos Dennis, looks like a lot of fun !


Rich you gotta get back out there with me again when my jeep is ready to go. We had a grip of fun that day we got lost :D haha We have some more fun spots to play in since then!!
