    Interested in the trail run but the website says for 8 "well set-up" vehicles. I have allpro skids but no sliders or bumbers yet? Anyone signed up for this yet? Also, you think this is a class format or just wheelin for the day?


    Edit: Just saw that OH-MAN signed up.....what do you think man?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I do not know which trail Bill will be going to do.
    Rachelsaid it may be Hackberry Creek.
    I will hope for the best but I do have sliders and a couple skids along with bumpers.

    The only thing I am not sure about is the stock 265-70-16s
    Hackberry will be a challange for me if it is the one, but then so was Box canyon ( the sissy route) north to south.
    This is how we learn I hope :eek::D:D

    I'm sure with the armor and a locker you should be good. Bill looks to be cool as hell. Probably won't make this one till I have some better armor. Still new to this sport and owe too much....lol! Still want to do box canyon though! Have fun and thanks for the response!

    After getting my truck dimpled by the hail storm at 5000 miles and some serious Arizona pin striping at the Vulture Mine run it is offically scuffed a bit!!I think it has been christened into off road land.

    I hope Bill is gentle with my off road newbieness :D:D

    Thanks Will for putting on the party.
    Met a lot of cool people and the vehicles there were amazing.

    I have a couple pictures of the trail ride, it was the biggest challange my Tacoma and I have been through.
    Big thanks to everyone on the ride for helping us out on the tough sections, I did choose the bypass on one section and still got it hung on both sliders at the top, Bill drug us out and over the top.
    Here are a couple pics.

    Thanks it was a blast.
    I am glad Bill was there to help us out when we were in a bit deep.
    The red Rover was not Bill's, his is a green one.

    The couple in the red one were from B.C. Canada and were great, they had that Rover in that position many times and we were thinking that is real close to becoming EPIC!!! but they kept it on mostly the ground.
