    I'm only doing a rear ARB for now. Should be more than enough.

    The start is more eroded than I remember from a few years back when I had a Chevy. The rest is more eroded but not as bad as the start.

    It was a challenge that's for sure, even added my 1st 'dings' on the sliders!

    May have been easier if I aired down, guess I was feeling frisky that day ;)

    A year ago I did this whole trail with no armor and open diffs and made it all the way up.

    Anyone have any more recent pictures?

    I punched my rocker pretty good (small but deep) shit the way my bedsides & BOTH rockers look now I shouldn't care anymore, at least i've got some slides now so feel a little better, I was pretty much stock other than 5100's in front, pretty sure I hadn't done my springs yet, I just remember kinda crazy lines , there wasn't any real line to it , just tire tracks all over the place so that told me ya gotta "pick" your way thru I guess, thats what i did anyway but would love to hit it again tho'..

    Ya, my rig is pretty darn clean, check my build for a pic.
    I think I'll weld on some sliders before I head back up.

    Gate gets closed from time to time, I think during fire hazard times and when some yahoos trashed it out last year and had bonfires up there. Gate was open 2 weeks ago.

    Contemplating a run there the weekend of the 4th depending on fishing conditions, that may take priority.

    Pretty certain I'm going to put together a run there in late July however, as long as its open
