4/3/11 - Trip to Devil's Slide

Feeling froggy and looking at the beautiful weather the desert had this weekend, Eddie, his dad and I made the decision to head out to Devil's Slide and run it to the Plaster City plant. It was an awesome trip as I have never been before and also the weather was absolutely amazing at a high of 79 while we were out there. Here are a few picks from the day, Eddie took some more so maybe he will add a few also:

Nice day out there...

You actually were at the Diablo Dropoff it would seem? Devil's Slide is a sand mesa against the hill north and east of the dry lake at Ocotillo Wells (on the way to Shell Reef).

Devil's Slide 3-10:

OP- I've been trying to get an answer for a while now, but with your soft top, do you think it's possible to have a bed tool box that sticks onto the side rails a little?

In one of the Bestop picture threads someone did it. If your talking about one that rests on the bed sides I would say no....the supports that are clamped on the sides have to be a certain distance from each other and if the box pushes them further away you will never get the bestop zipped together.
