    Sweet, It'll be good to meet you.
    Actually... I've got a 1/4" IFS skid, and a Tcase skid I could bring. I have both the tcase skid with or without the exhaust cross over cutout.

    If you guys say I'll be alright without nice 33" offroad tires, I'll go. I don't want to hold anyone up is the thing if I get stuck and stuff. I just have toyo a/t's.

    I only have 31" bfg all terrains...and an air compressor so I can pump my tires back up after lowering the pressure a bit.

    Screw it I'm in. I'll see if I can snag my dads snatch straps just in case. I'm bringing him too for some good old bonding.

    That's the spirit! Haha. We're going to have a lot of fun doing this trail with all these open open rigs.

    I wish I could bring my dad but he has a bad back :(

    might be doing a little bit of :burnrubber: but hopefully not too much.
    Sorry to hear about your dad's back. My dad's had some back troubles, too. Not fun

    Sweet glad this is shaping up and the Strawberry closure didnt mess things up too bad. I need to get out wheelin! :D
    I'll have hilift, a snatch strap, several d rings, tire deflator, misc tools/fluids, and of course my GF/dogs with me. :jellydance:
    I've been through some pretty rough stuff open/open. Its all about choosing the right line, and knowing when to use momentum and when to be careful. I'm happy to spot people through any difficult areas.

    Haha yeah just a little!
    Thanks man, I really wish he could wheel with me.
    Sorry to hear about your dad's back too.

    Yeah! It's going to be fun. Check the first post there is an address there. We are meeting in farmington at a gas station.


    Sounds like you're all set :D

    Yeah same here. There are a few spots on this trail that will definitely need some spotting for all rigs and will most likely take more than a few tries to get through.

    Really?!? hmmm I would only have the current funds for the IFS... is it the 3/16 or 1/4? or fancy dancy aluminum?

    hmmmm I want it... but I'm not sure. I have reservations about the 1/4 just because of the weight.... I'm all stock for the suspension, so I cant do any heavy duty wheeling. And I dont know how much weight I want to throw on to the front end like that. Do think it would be to much? I would really love the aluminum... or even just the 3/16 im sure could do it for me.
    I definitely think I am under the "light-duty" category..
    And let me clarify. I know for sure that I'll be buy it from you... eventually. Just was going to depend on when either I or my brother would be getting to Reno next.
