    You should be fine. I'm going to run it with 33's, sliders and stock skids.With 35's you should have enough clearance to make it. Just pick the right lines and you'll be fine.

    Maybe Tarcilo can chime in. He did Slick Rock with a 6" lift and 35s, and he only has sliders and bumpers, no skids IIRC

    I think the only sketch part is the 3 rock cluster right after the water crossing and right before the last obstacle. But yea, with the right line and patience, you'll be okay.

    I only had my budbuilt last year and sliders and only had some minor scratches to the stock front and rear bumper and wheel rash. Of course both of those were from the last obstacle and going up the hard line. If I hadn't taken that line I would have been damage free.

    So Jerry, when is that press going to be running...

    Nice, will you be making any skids? Pending on prices and any extra cash I have, I may pick one up before this trip if their are being produced.

    Mj is right on the hardest part being after the water crossing but like everyone's saying with some patients and choosing the right lines you should be more than fine to get through.
    What everyone really needs on trips like these is to bring or have lots of hunger at the end of the day cuz you will be eating like Kings.

    Thanks everyone for the advice, that is pretty much what I figured, and I'm not afraid of a little road rash, already have a decent amount along....well the entire body on both sides! hah. I've come to like it and am definitely not afraid of getting more. Avoid it if possible but if not oh well, its a truck. Just have to make sure I heal up completely by then.

    We had way too much food, not like I was complaining.

    This could be a possibility, depending on group size. This time I won't ride along with Eric.
