    I always wanted to hit the trails ever since the BFG MT KM2's were installed. I've been lurking around in this forum and TTORA to join the meets and runs. Unfortunately, the dates did not work for me.

    After the sliders got mounted, I hit the trail last Sunday. I did not have time to contact TW members, so I went solo. Actually, a colleague of mine accompanied me but we were on the same vehicle. We were just running the fire roads until we met a couple of Jeep Cherokee's. We tag along with the jeeps, and yes, through the medium and hard sections. At the end of the day, the only casualty was my right rear mud flap. It was fun and exciting.

    Here are some videos and photos of the experience. Enjoy...

    The weather was bad. No wonder we only saw these guys out there.

    I had thoughts of going up there, but I did.

    Looks good! Fun place to mess around and test mods out.

    Yes, indeed. I tackled the obstacle with caution even knowing I already have the sliders. The extra lift and taller tires made a big difference.
