    Slick Rock wheeling trip May 18
    Required: 4x4, decent AT tires, sliders
    Recommended: skids + aftermarket bumpers, locker, diff breather mod, recovery gear (winch, hi-lift), CB or FRS radio (I'll have both to communicate between the two)

    Tentative plan: Head to the northern trailhead near Lake Alpine on Friday afternoon/night and camp out at Silver Creek. Wheel at Slick Rock Saturday morning at 9AM, then after, hit up Corral Hollow trail. Then camp out Saturday night. Folks are welcome to camp the whole time, part of the weekend, or just do a day trip.

    tidbits from members...
    In all honesty, you won't need a locker unless you plan on taking the hard line at the last obstacle. If not, then you can take the bypass. But even those of us without lockers can do the last obstacle :D

    Yea sliders are required for this trip. Also recommended 33s and skids. But last year GhostFJ made it through with 32s and bjmoose made it by with no skids. Just be more careful with your lines and you'll be fine

    I'd be down, depending if I can make it to Moab this year. If I can manage the Moab trip, then I'll have to pass on this one. Unfortunately it's looking more like I'll be missing Moab though.

    I made it through last time on 31s, stock skids, open/open, WITH sliders (<--veeeeerry important). I had one spot of fender damage (you can see in Carson's video at 0:33 http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/no...orcal-spotted-bs-thread-1060.html#post6642677 where the rock hit his fender, but with my truck that area is metal, so it bent instead of flexing like the second gens can)
    Sliders are a definite must, but you can do it with a less built rig, just choose your lines carefully.
    I'll be in Australia for this one, so have fun! :)
