    So what do you all think about wheeling at strawberry pass? I was thinking of the 13th, 20th or the 27th. We can camp too if people want too. Ill start a pole and then once we get a date decided I will start another thread. You can choose multiple dates too if you're available for more than one!

    EDIT:

    So it looks like the 13th is the prevailing date so far. We have Cram, Mikey and maybe Shaw. I will start a new thread in a few days.

    Suitable for stock trucks? A couple friends and I were planning on doing Barney Riley on the 14th but if my friends stock 2nd gen can make it through this then I'll see if I can get them to do this trail instead.

    I've never ran the trail but I wouldn't recommend a stock truck run it at least sliders. Barney Riley would be much better for a stock truck.

    I don't have a locker or any lift...stock suspension from 1992 and 31" tires. I DO have sliders though (thanks to Jerry). Would this be possible for me? Those two obstacles in the ttora trail description seem pretty intense and tough for anyone open.

    I have an open diff with lsd but have skid plates and sliders. Not sure if that will be a problem. I’d like to hear from anyone that has wheeled strawberry pass before. Anyways I’d be in for the 13th or 20th not sure if I can make it on the 27th

    Yeah!

    Like others have said, sliders are a must unless you want body damage.

    I'm not sure on 31" tires. Maybe someone else will say what they think about that. I'm open-open.

    Sweet, sounds good. I think the 20th is a no go for me too.

    Just like Eric said you are golden. I'm same as you but no skids and I've done slick rock and deer valley, which I think are probably more difficult than this trail.

    Yeah I feel for ya man.





    So it looks like the 13th is the prevailing date so far. We have Cram, Mikey and maybe Shaw.

    What do you mean by hits? I did Eagle lakes a few weeks ago (using the bypass instead of doing Driveshaft hill, though) and I hit the front skid and LCA mounts a few times, but nothing too bad. Is that what you mean?
    As for the date, I'm good with whatever. I won't be able to do a camp, though.
