    It's a trip to see stock rigs doing golden spike trail.
    25 years ago I was doing the trail in a solid axle locked and crawlered and thought we were getting extreme.

    Most of the vids I see of tacoma on Golden crack have the almost tip moment.
    Anyone see a rig roll there?

    While it feels sketchy to teeter on the crack, there are very few rollovers there. Especially if you have any sort of wheelbase.

    It's the golf carts that struggle there more than the trucks.

    Of course it's all easy to say the crack is no worries when you when you can do it without lifting a tire. YMMV. IMG_20200213_162414.jpg



    Nearly that whole trail favors long wheelbase, so the Tacos don't really struggle.

    I remember getting to the waterfall just on dusk a few years ago at the back of a RT group that included some stock Tacos. There was a brand new 2 door JK on the waterfall having to bump really hard a few times to try to get up. He even ended up sliding sideways and doing some body damage.

    In the end all the tacos made it up without much drama. The longer wheelbase meant they were hooking the front over the ledge.

    This particular day/night is one I'll never forget. First time meeting @SilverGhost, who proceeds to launch into the night sky with people at arms reach of his tires. Pretty sure there was also a guy with a trailer-thing stacked with speakers playing music off in the distance?

    ill run pritchett again with you next year. itll be fun when you get big tires and forgo the thought of straight body panels :D

    i really enjoyed that run. Left a lot of rubber there, cooked the tranny, and grenaded cv or two...but the only thing i couldnt make it up was rocker knocker. super fun trail for sure!

    I'll likely be giving it a

    mmmmm sadly too much else going on right now life wise to take this week off as well. I have a dedicated tow rig now though so there will be less fucks to give at moab in the future.

    Yeah that always makes a difference for sure. Have another person(s) (one vehicle) interested in running it with us.

    @rctoy and I ran it last year. Discovered I had a broken shackle on rocker knocker. Welded it back up then took the bypass.

    My rear bumper prevents me from getting on to rock pile. The bypass is no joke there though.

    Might run it it again especially if @TBuzz is keen.

    The main issues with pritchett are
    1. All the golf carts clogging it up these days. We got stuck behind a big group of them on Chewie. 2 were already broken. They were just bumping harder and harder to try to make it. Eventually they let us go. Konsta and I both pretty much just walked right up it. I didn't even slip a tire.
    2. The exit road back to camp kinda sucks. Just bumpy and long.
    3. Despite all that we made good time and were back in camp pretty early. Not really early enough to go hit another trail, but still felt like a bit of a waste of an afternoon.

    Yeah that was my thought, bring ya back to camp.
    I think our already pissed off rack will be our limiting factor. That and sorting out how we want to take on rocker knocker. Otherwise, from what I remember, it should be a good time.

    Well I officially have a truck and trailer set up, so I’m definitely down since I’ll be trailering out and back. Just gotta make sure work doesn’t fuck me

    I may be trying to get the camper and truck hauled out if you want to grab a bunk in the trailer.
