    This is becoming quite the get-together, I'm stoked! :woot:

    I'll be bringing alcoholic beverages as well, along with an extra 10 gals of gas, auto fluids tools and what-not, so if any of us experience trouble we can handle it. :)

    Locking diff might get you through. If not, there's enough of us who can pull you through. Or you could jump in with someone :D

    Lift is optional but a good set of tires is a must. The trail is rocky in spots but with all of us being pretty good at spotting, we can get you through if you don't have sliders.

    I've seen older stock wranglers on this trail, which are lower at stock height than a stock Tacoma. There shouldn't be any problem at all with stock height rigs.

    I'll defer to JeepAndrew's judgement since I haven't been there since 09. Rocks, ledges, etc, can be easily spotted, strapped, stacked but my only concern would be a couple pretty steep uphill spots where someone without good traction (especially combined with inexperience) might slide off the road and down a hill. Like I said though, maybe it's gotten better since I went through.

    I think it has gotten better. With decent tires, I think just about anyone could do it. Me and andrew have spotted enough to be able to get everyone through. And I am on the same page as Jason. I have extra room and with my bedrack I have more than enough room for other peoples gear.
