    Not my company, but they pay me for my truck whenever I use it (except the commute to work and home). Any driving between jobs or for jobs gets charged. Rate changes if I'm pulling a trailer or loaded.

    So are those trails like Liberty and the others that have been discussed recently better for SWB rigs in the 110" WB or less? Kinda makes me want to find a little sami that someone isn't asking an arm and a leg for and building a rig.

    Without having been there, I'm going to pretend its like what I wheeled with @In4aride in montrose and say yes for the most part. The trails are super tight and the SWB allows much more room to move around. But then a longer wheel base would be nice for the super vertical sections. However, with the low belly height of a tacoma, that basically negates the advantage of the LWB because it gets you high centered on LITERALLY EVERY F#$%*%$ OBSTACLE. @Wulf @ColoradoTJ and @In4aride can correct me and tell me I'm stupid if I am wrong

    I think it's less about wheelbase and more about the stability. Being able to turn tight and be off camber is a big deal in those trails. Yes being smaller is nice to maneuver but the real small guys tend to go end over more often. It's a compromise just like anything else.

    Just looking at it I know my long as truck would have difficulty maneuvering. Just wondering if the sweet spot 118-121 WB rigs around here would be long even for those trails. We even get away with 125+" rigs our "tight" trails are more maneuvering around trees and narrow ridges vs. gulleys like that.

    Depends on the group, but I would say for the buggy guys or the extremely built guys the average wheelbase is probably right about that 110 mark. Really a jku at 116 is pretty long for a lot of the harder trails, and we have a lot of guys anymore who are in the low 100 range that are crawling everything. Plus with rear steer it totally changes what does or does not work in tight trails. I'd say it's more about body size and larger turn radius that screws us. If I were to build a buggy or hard trail wheeler for Colorado I would likely be in the 102 to 108 range

    Most of the comp buggies are 106” and some go up to 108”. I’m at 108-109” depending on how many beers we had before pulling out the measuring devices.

    At 108”ish I find it pretty tight on some trails...FYI

    That’s some good articulation, I assume that’s with 12s in the back? My shit don’t do that but it will soon because my shocks get delivered Monday.

    does the slider on the drivers side block your rear door from opening?
