Nope none of the trials can be done without damage. If you had sliders and a IFS skid you would be fine but not bone stock. Hell Hole I'd recommend bumpers as well the stock ones wouldn't last at the tree.

Sorry bud bumper or not your tagging your rear end at the tree it's about a 40" drop and very tight. I had way more clearance then you when i was IFS and i tagged my rear bumper pretty hard at the tree.

Thats over 3 feet... I dont know if my rig can handle a drop like that on the rear even if I get 33's before the trip. I should have got a rear high clearance bumper. Too bad im to much of a wimp to cut my new trucks bedsides.

Damn, well then get your press working and make me a bumper...haha

Seriously though I'm in if we go somewhere a bit more stockish friendly. Unfortunately armor is not on the horizon anytime soon with the wedding this August.

It's not that bad as long as you have a rear plate bumper. Stock and you will have damage but we did have a few FJ's with stock bumpers that did ok. They did have scratched bumpers by the end of the trail. Hell Hole is defiantly not for the nubes but it's not too crazy. I ran it with stock skids sliders and bumpers. One locker is a must to get back out the only 2nd Gen with us stopped and parked his truck at the tree because he didn't have a locker.

I'm not sure the trail is tight and you are large if you don't mind body damage I'm sure you can make it. Just don't brake like Hollister tow trucks are a LONG way away!!!

I would love to go but i have no locker. So I'm out for hell hole but if its slick rock i might be in . So you don't think its doable without a locker. I thought i saw a video of guys making it without one. But that tree looks intense coming out. Im not sure i want to tangle with it.
