    Yup. I haven't heard from the guy with the chevy since that run. I didn't see the comment until you mentioned it lol. Ya thats the area. Its a little tricky to find. Its not that long of a trail, probably between 1-2 miles long. And hahahaha no there is no egg ranch at the top. If you keep on the trail and go left at the split there is an area where you can mess around in the rocks.

    Hell no it ain't. I barely made it a year ago and the trail have only gotten worse.

    hey Doug, are you free to try the trail this week or weekend?

    Oh I'm sure Mike knows its not Prerunner friendly Sean :D I just bought a Center bearing Today & doing the brakes ( Thanks again TW) so for a couple days anyway , maybe this weekend, from looking at that vid tells me 2 things, first one is it's def a 1st gen trail in a couple spots, narrow like by that rock & unless it was recent (didn't notice when it was done) that trail may not even be accessible, those ruts looked suspiciously Corral canyon like...but if theres not too much clay in it..;) Is it USDF or CDF, or well, its not posted right ? But yeah I'd like to check it out..:D

    I have chalenged that and won.:D. It gets a little narrow by the rock but only cause of bushes. There is not much if any clay (I believe). No, I haven't posted anything about setting up a run.

    Oh LMAO. There are no signs posted at the entrence or along the trail, so to mine or everyone I know that has run the trail it is not illegal.

    I'd be down, if my truck is all fixed up by then.

    As usual I'm impressed by where you get that truck of yours Matt , but videos don't show diff. level like actually seeing it, looks to me in a few spots that you need the front wheels to bite to pull you forward, I guess if you hit it fast enough , looks like damage to me, I dunno if any prerunners go up it it'd be you buddy if any did ..:D:D

    Anything in this vid look like a familiar run ?? :eek::eek:


    holy shit I just looked closely, that black 4runner has a gal navigating , WELL DONE

    Hey reckless, I'd be very suprized if you or any prerunner make it pass that first obstacle. And this trail continuously gets worse.

    Although this trail is out of the scope for prerunners probably from not being able to have a fast line of approach , like the first obstacle you mention, I saw it (in video anyway) I agree looks a little technical
    but I will say this, Matt's (Recklesstaco) truck isn't even an E-locker
    it's LSD !! After quite a few runs with this guy pretty amazed where he gets that limited slip diff. up & over, the dude has some skills.
    05OFFROAD (Mike ) also has good skills, I'll trail with these guys anytime.

    You should go with us on a run Sean we always seem to have a goodtime
    we do it safe (reasonable risk) & actually get a little nuts when appropriate. I can get just as big a rush at 7mph as I can at 70mph...:eek:

    I'm doing my center bearing tomorrow but that trail you've got has my curiousity bro' so, ya know, I gotta hit it....:D:D

    Alright, so my cats are fried and getting replaced tomorrow (if they get the parts in tomorrow). If its done tomorrow then I'd be down for saturday or sunday, but for saturday I would have to be out of there by 1pm. Sunday could be all day if people wanted. I will post tomorrow telling the results of the fix.

    EDIT: It would have to be Sunday or Monday, have to help a friend on Saturday earlier than excepted previously.
