I want to run Hole In The Rock badly.  I'd say that's a trip unto itself, though.

I'm down for all of those.  I've heard Steelbender is pretty boring though, lots of dirt and lowspeed slickrock, not much in the way of obstacles.

I've ran steel Bender 1 time and it was pretty fur, BUT it was dark and we were kinda lost. Maybe that's why it seemed fun!

Steel bender is OK. It has a couple of obstacles and that's it. You drop off a big rock ledge towards the beginning and then climb some pretty difficult stairs in the middle. Other than that, it's a long DUSTY, bumpy road.

I bumped the thread on T4R.org to get a feel for what the guys from out of state want to do. You guys feel free to chip in over there if you have strong feelings one way or another.

I think we should adjust it around the corn planting so you can make it!

Guys are coming from across the country, there's not a whole lot of adjusting to be done.  Sad

I should be good with any date, I hope we can arrange it so Ty can make it.

I could probably go on that date to. I would also sugest doing cliffhanger because that trail is sweet and short. It would be perfect for a large group for the day.

Cliffhanger would be fun if Tyson is there. I wanna see him poop his pants.

Alright, even though I'm probably starting a new job on March 1st, this trip is going to happen. I've already done the math and I'll have no problem being able to take a couple of days off. I spent last night going through the trails and marking down how long they take to get through them. I say we hit it hard and get in as many trails as we can. When I've gone with a large family group, we don't hit the trail until 10 or 11am and back by 3...ain't gonna happen this time. Most of the good trails take 4 hours to get through. I say start at 8am, finish a trail...eat lunch, and then hit another one close by. If we really want to do the Trinity, I would propose that we do that Saturday afternoon (after a morning run), trail camp, and then finish up and head home Sunday.

Now, this all depends on the capability of the rigs that go. For the Trinity, 35's and lockers are really needed to get up all the high ledges. Even with 35's, lockers, and dual t-cases...I still broke a ring gear getting up those ledges. It is a TOUGH, TOUGH trail. If we get rigs in there and have to winch up every obstacle, we'll be there for days...

So...I know it's still a little early, but let's get a list of rigs planning on going so we can put together some trail rides that match the rigs going...

For sure I'll have my 85' lifted 37s lockers duals and winch. And a 2nd gen with a small lift and posably 33s no lockers and maybe a winch.

OMG he's alive! I was just getting ready to call you and make sure you still had a pulse. Smile

Lots of guys on T4R.org have made noise but not committed.  The ones who have committed are Quatre Coureur (Paul) with an '88 open/open on 33s coming from Cali, and Riff Raff (forgot his real name) with a '93 with a rear locker, also 33s, coming from West Virginia.  They're both IFS, and moderately experienced wheelers.  Mike (mikebontoft) is thinking about bringing his new-to-him GC, which would be mostly stock, but I haven't seen him commit yet.  I'll page all three of them over to this thread since I think more of us are active here than there.

If you think it'd be best to skip Triple Threat, I'm fine with that.  You've got the most experience down there of any of us, I think?

I'm also good with early starts.  I hate wasting perfectly good vacation time screwing around in camp.

hmm I thought I had a watch out on this thread. I even thought I posted?

Yes, being in two months should hopefully give me enough time to do what I need to:
-address power steering leak
-front diff whine
-real tcase swap (no more full time 4wd crap)
-4" lift
-31 or 32's
throw together some sliders and frame rail reinforcement.

should be good after that. otherwise yeah it's stock with about a 2" spacer lift. I'll probably be sitting a few out if that's the case.


also as I mentioned in the other thread, Jeep Safari ends the 20th of April... hopefully that's enough time for them to clear out?

I'm still planning on being there but it all depends on my work schedule. My truck won't be built up by then sadly so for the hard trails I'll be riding shotgun with a camera. Other than those I'll be wheeling whatever I can though.
