    Not all rock crawling is equal. ever seen bolder hopping a lot of things grab the belly of those lower rock crawler that i dont want toughing my belly.

    yeah if you cut the ever living fuck out of your truck and if you plan on running a 44" tire thats lots and lots of cutting. At that point should have just made a buggy. I dont want a buggy i want a truck that can clear that tire still have some really good up travel and lots of flex This is not my first rodeo this is my second build.

    once again i had a sas'd crawler that worked great for everything it had a 28" frame height and was factory width. so being much wider and longer makes me stable yet i dont drag when i do the big boy parts of the trail mmk;). As far easier and safer well thats rock racing not crawling.

    A low CG is cool for a go fast truck, but I have like 8" of frame clearance at full stuff. I leave skid marks in the dirt on hard hits. It gets hung up pretty easy in the rocks, but the wheel travel compensates quite a bit. Obviously, a normal height sas will do better in a rock garden.

    I know what you mean. Having lots of up travel means my cab is pretty level through everything while crawling, but at the expense of clearance. When your rig starts using that up travel your belly gets closer to the rocks... With my ORI's empty (so full stuff) and 50 psi in my 33's I can't fit a floor jack under my diff skid... and sure enough, running at 50+ mph with the tires at 20psi

    I was going the other direction when I hit the ground. We turned around to look at the ground and check out the truck. Mark is adjusting the Go Pro.

    Looks like my career is changing. Got a job offer at a tire shop. Might get my mechanics apprenticeship started pretty soon. Cheap tires, cheap parts, free alignments, free labour!

    howboutyou?

    whipsaw is usually an august for me, just due to the way it works out perfectly for some summer vacation, trying to decide If I haul the Lexus there or if I drive their lol


    I think I'm going to do a weekend at crowsnest in July or potentially even june, just depends on my work schedule going forward into that month. work took a big up swing for me, lots of new projects, I have two months of 5 on 2 off and than 139 days of 14 on 7 off and than 90 days of 7 on 7 off
