Have fun on Pritchett. Is it doable with the setup you described? Yeah, but it's gonna beat you up. No skids? you're asking for trouble on a couple of the obstacles. Only one locker is going to be a stretch. And you're going to need at least one winch in your group to get up the rockpile. I highly doubt you guys can make that obstacle unassisted, especially without a front locker.

Don't let me stop you from trying. It'll test you and your truck for sure, but if you wanna try it I say go for it. I'm just saying I'm not confident with my own truck on that trail.

If my truck is ready by then I should have front and rear mounted winces. I usually have a rear winch on a cradle, but I'm going to mount it for sure

Sounds difficult haha. I think I'll give it a try. I know it might be iffy without good skids, but I think I'll just take it easy

Here's a ledge early into Pritchett. If you don't have a belly skid (or more lift that your truck has Mark) then your t-case is going to get ripped off.


Or this one just a little farther into the trail. Nevermind that this Cruiser has 38" tires.




This is a *fun* spot too and the ledges are bigger than they look in this pic.


And the Rockpile. Tell me how you plan to tackle this (with no bypass) without skids when this dude with gobs of lift and 42" tires and still dragging his belly.


Still the trail can be done in a Tacoma. But this dude has 35's AND SKID PLATES, and a front locker.

Honestly as long as there a couple winches in the group you can get through the trail. The thing that makes Pritchett tough is the fact that there are no bypasses so you have to do the hard obstacles. But even if everyone in the group winched it you could get through ok. But without skid plates on a relatively short Tacoma you're definitely asking for trouble and you WILL drag your t-case even if you are winching.

I don't know about you but I don't like the idea of trying to limp out of a trail with a t-case cracked in half.

Also, if you have to winch through most of the trail can you really claim to have done the trail?

How come everyone's suddenly all interested in Prichett now?? No one wanted to join me a few months ago..

(I agree with Adam's and Laurens's comments btw.... 33s or just 1 locker = winch winch winch)
