    I was using the Ebrake locker at that point. Wont be doing that any more unless absolutely necessary, I thought I broke it. It was locking up after that feature for a better part of the day, seems ok now.

    I need to get some video of my truck, but I also want to do a few more things too it. In those videos, I knew I was holding the convoy up, so I gave it 1-2 tries and moved on.

    Hey a couple of guys and I are going up to wheel up some passes there in a couple weeks and this one was on our wish list. Do you think a 2nd gen, bone stock except for 32" tires can make it up this? Ive got a DCSB Off-Road. Weve done some driving and have experience spotting but that wont help if its impassible for the truck. What do you think? Thanks for the input!

    you have a locker at least..so that's a start

    bowling ball hill changes every week/month/year so that's hard to say, but with patients you could make it up there

    i would suggest sliders or skids ideally as those rocks can get slippery and put you into a rock

    the early obstacles have easy lines if you know how to find them

    so i'd say yes, but trail condition may turn you around but is uncertain as it changes. you will get pinstriping through the willows, so be prepared for that. there is no way around that. the willows are past the beginning obstacles, before bowling ball hill.
