    so looks like the guys that went to bulldog had a lot of fun. i was curious if anyone wanted to get another trail run day going before i head back to school the 19th!

    if your interested maybe post a trail up and possible days to go so that i can request work off and get some trailing in on the new setup :D

    i MIGHT be out at montana mountain out in flourence junction monday the 4th if someone wants to come along. i dont know yet though because im going camping with some people and they are such corn flakes

    I think taylor and I are doing Broken Arrow soon if you have a locker or 4x4.

    Other then that there is nothing planned. I'm down for going out but I'm gone all next week and weekend.

    You can do half the trail with out the locker and get to the first play area. How would you get back up the staircase (or is there another way out) I thought it was a loop. :confused:

    once you go down the stair case you dont have to go back up. went with a buddy with a jeep. only thing i am afraid of with the truck is that its a pretty steep decent and theres not much weight in the back haha

    at a certain point on the trail you see the staircase and keep driving and go around to get to the top then come down and same trail takes you back to the beginning

    Yeah it is steep. You could put some sand bags in the back or something like that in the bed. Whatever you can get for cheap or free.

    Andy: Taylor and I were talking about on a weekend so you wont have to worry.

    Oliver: We will have no problem going down it. But THe way We talked about is doing the loop and going back up it. THats Why I was saying locker or 4x4 only. But If you know there is another way out when you get that way you can take it. I wanna try to get back up without having Taylor or a pink jeep pull me up it.haha From what I've been told its all about what lines you take going back up. When I went up there over summer I only did half the trail because I didn't take a 4x4 buddy with me. and didn't want to get stuck alone. So I went to the first play area and messed around there and took some pictures.

    I have done Broke Arrow many times in my old D-90 and a Rubicon. Some of the turns were pretty tight and that was with a short wheelbase vehicles. I think a double cab Taco would be tight but doable. As for the stairs, not a problem without lockers or two wheel drive. Gravity is work in WITH you there!

    ya thats why he mentioned the 4x4 or locker for the return trip (up the staircase) going down anything with wheels that turn relatively well will just roll right down :)

    you do any wheeling holling in the taco?

    Missed that part. Up would suck unlocked or 2x4

    As for the wheeling, a bit with my Rubicon buddies. I hope to go out with a few of you guys in the near future.
    I'm just getting back into the off-roading thing.
