Well congrats on the engagement... Do you know of any online resources for those trails up there? I've tried searching online but haven found a lot of info on these trails.

Theres an Oregon meets/trail run thread that has some pics and info, I can also probably answer most anything you could need to know. What in particular would you like to know/see?
I also have a trail map of all the trails there, and can even recommend trails and routes based on your truck's build and your skill level. Most important thing to have for the trails there is a mild lift, a set of rock sliders and some skids. I can guarantee sliders being used a fair bit both on rocks as well as tree stumps along the trail sides. And skids would get a work out depending on the lines you take and/or the trails you run.
Many of the trails there are very tight between trees, so knowing the size and maneuverability of your truck is important.
Often, the harder trails have bypasses you can take- Archers firebreak for instance. It contains a dozen or so sections of trail along a mountain ridge where a forest service road snakes along. The trail jumps along a section, meets and crosses the road to the next section and so on. So if theres a hard section, take the road around and rejoin the group on the other end of the section of trail

I think one of the biggest things is not really knowing the area. Any recommendations that you have are welcomed. As for my truck build up front I have the OME 9000's with 886 coils and in the rear the Dakar spring pack, tire size is 285/70/16 as for armor relentless front bumper and I do have sliders. I will probably get a set of skids from you before I go up there and a couple of other little things. Is there any way I can get a copy of that trail map? What trails would you recommend?

Maps can be had from the Forest service, they're folding and get quite large so I cant really copy mine for you. If you're around Reno I'd be happy to show you the map and talk you through some of the trails and what to expect on them as well as anything else regarding the trip.

Heres what the trails look like:












Hard trails often have 'gate keepers' at the start to keep rigs out that dont have business being in there

Thanks a lot for the pictures it helped out quite a bit. Defiantly going to make that event or the weekend after, next time I'm in Reno hopefully next Friday I'll stop buy pick up a few things and we can go over the map. I found the OHV guide for TNF and it looks like there are quite a few trails to run up there.

Would anyone be willing to make the trip to Oregon for that event or the next weekend? Owen said he has some interest in it.

Anyone going to be in Carson this week? check out an fj60 for me?

And opinion time.

95 FZJ80, 234k miles, pretty clean, no lockers. I know the guy who bought it new, then gave it to his daughter who currently owns it.
85 FJ60, 217k miles, needs a few items, ujoints, possibly clutch, PS pump. currently a DD.
80 pickup. 20R, 5sp, small lift, new tires, shell. (haven't seen pictures yet, and forgot to ask mileage)

All basically same price.
