Interested in this trip, I haven't been before and am curious about what I'd be able to safely do without any skid/under armor yet. I recently had some sliders made and welded on by BAMF, which I love and can't say enough about, but are currently my only armor. Would anyone advise I work on getting various skids before tackling this run? If so which would be most important. They are on my list of must haves already, just haven't gotten to them yet...also may or may not make it depending on how my lower back heals up after displacing a disc and pinching a nerve about 10 days ago lol, but this is far enough out that I may be gtg! Appreciate any feedback, also I've got a 6" stage 2 procomp DB lift with 35" nittos

You should be fine. I'm going to run it with 33's, sliders and stock skids.With 35's you should have enough clearance to make it. Just pick the right lines and you'll be fine.

Maybe Tarcilo can chime in. He did Slick Rock with a 6" lift and 35s, and he only has sliders and bumpers, no skids IIRC

I think the only sketch part is the 3 rock cluster right after the water crossing and right before the last obstacle. But yea, with the right line and patience, you'll be okay.

I only had my budbuilt last year and sliders and only had some minor scratches to the stock front and rear bumper and wheel rash. Of course both of those were from the last obstacle and going up the hard line. If I hadn't taken that line I would have been damage free.

So Jerry, when is that press going to be running...

Nice, will you be making any skids? Pending on prices and any extra cash I have, I may pick one up before this trip if their are being produced.

Mj is right on the hardest part being after the water crossing but like everyone's saying with some patients and choosing the right lines you should be more than fine to get through.
What everyone really needs on trips like these is to bring or have lots of hunger at the end of the day cuz you will be eating like Kings.

Thanks everyone for the advice, that is pretty much what I figured, and I'm not afraid of a little road rash, already have a decent amount along....well the entire body on both sides! hah. I've come to like it and am definitely not afraid of getting more. Avoid it if possible but if not oh well, its a truck. Just have to make sure I heal up completely by then.
