    I disagree. There are only a few 4x4 trails. There are dozens of 4x2 trails.

    Sure, on holiday weekends there are a lot of bikes driving all around but there are still a lot of room for trucks.

    Send Tacoskim a PM. He is almost like a guide to Gorman (Hungry Valley).

    I've been to Gorman. It is pretty sweet. Good for 2x4. The trails are marked for difficulty. You can go on the easy trails and some of the intermediate too. I have taken mine out there and I don't even have a locker. You know what would be cool is if we got a group together of prerunners to go to gorman.

    I've been to Hungry Valley with 3 other trucks in this forum. The "difficult trails" are not really difficult. I think the pre-runner will be fine there, but since we were all 4x4, we kept looking for some kind of challenge. There were some steep descents, where it's best to engage 4LO.

    There is a practice area for mudding and rock crawling if you don't want to take the trails.

    You'll be just fine with 2x4 @ gorman as long as you don't do anything stupid and stay off the hard trails. Tacoskim and I went out there for a night run a while back and he did just fine following me in his prerunner. he actually had to pull me out of a ditch that night :eek:

    Yep. I'm just over the hill in Valencia. I've done it with my dirt bike but never with a truck. I'd be down to check it out sometime.
