NORCAL: Slick Rock OHV + camping May 18-19

Slick Rock wheeling trip May 18
Required: 4x4, decent AT tires, sliders
Recommended: skids + aftermarket bumpers, locker, diff breather mod, recovery gear (winch, hi-lift), CB or FRS radio (I'll have both to communicate between the two)

Tentative plan: Head to the northern trailhead near Lake Alpine on Friday afternoon/night and camp out at Silver Creek. Wheel at Slick Rock Saturday morning at 9AM, then after, hit up Corral Hollow trail. Then camp out Saturday night. Folks are welcome to camp the whole time, part of the weekend, or just do a day trip.

CB channel 30

EAST BAY CARAVAN MEET UP SPOT: Pleasanton In-N-Out at 3PM on that Fri.
PIT STOP/SAC FOLKS MEET UP SPOT: Angel's Camp O'Reillys around 5PM on that Fri

Trailhead: 38° 28' 07.5" N 120° 00' 40.2" W

Trail had snow on first half mile. Muddy in spots and alot of loose rocks. Fun as always but I think those with out skids and lockers need to be cautious. I would highly recommend sliders, lift, 33" tires. Those without skids will have to take it slow to avoid hitting bottom and those without a locker will prob need to winched up the very last obstacle. For the long WB rigs, you might have to do some multiple point turns for some sections. Anything is doable if you have the will. Take a look at my rig from top to bottom and you'll see what I mean. Can it be done, yes. Can it be done cleanly, no. Made the last obstacle the hard way too. Also for those with open air filters like a cold air, if the water crossing does not get lower might have to think about changing it out.
In all honesty, you won't need a locker unless you plan on taking the hard line at the last obstacle. If not, then you can take the bypass. But even those of us without lockers can do the last obstacle

Yea sliders are required for this trip. Also recommended 33s and skids. But last year GhostFJ made it through with 32s and bjmoose made it by with no skids. Just be more careful with your lines and you'll be fine

I'd be down, depending if I can make it to Moab this year. If I can manage the Moab trip, then I'll have to pass on this one. Unfortunately it's looking more like I'll be missing Moab though.

I made it through last time on 31s, stock skids, open/open, WITH sliders (<--veeeeerry important). I had one spot of fender damage (you can see in Carson's video at 0:33 http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/nor...ml#post6642677 where the rock hit his fender, but with my truck that area is metal, so it bent instead of flexing like the second gens can)
Sliders are a definite must, but you can do it with a less built rig, just choose your lines carefully.
I'll be in Australia for this one, so have fun!
