Friday was the "maiden" voyage for the new Syota and we did a 3.0 trail out of Payson to some indian ruins and some old cowboy cabins south of town. Truck did great cept for some trans issues on teh highway back into town that ended up fixing itself the next morning????

No real rocks but a damn good time anyway;

We dropped into and climbed out of a few canyons along the way and ended up in this valley with some cool indian ruins and rock formations;

We had lunch at the cabins and then went further down the trail to a rock out-cropping to play around abit but the rocks were all wet, our tires were packed with AZ clay and there were puddles everywhere;

On our way back we saw this old rock formation but we couldn't figure out why they would build it?

We also got rained on pretty good for about an hour on the way back. Was a great day with the High Country Renegades out on the trail.

Looked like a fun run Sy. I kind of felt I needed to stay in town with only four tires. Although I gained a ton of confidence in the durability of those Creepy's!

Did you convert your rig to a 6x6? Dually? How many tires you need?

Where's your trip report?

I wasn't spotting, I was providing encouragment :D .

Nate: "What did he say?"
Uriel: lol "Stroke says to hit it harder" lol.

Nate was doing everything right, it just wasn't going. It was kind of sloppy, the rear diff kept dragging, and the length wasn't helping either. If the rim hadn't bent and the tire didn't slip off, he would of had it. Next time.

Yes Mr. Miller BUT you gotta remember that were workin with a Bluebird here, guy:rolleyes: He tried the normal way but his rear diff was anchored hard and would not let him go forward.So plan B was getting high on the wall and "bunny-hopp" the diff rock.:D

That is the same exact way I have climbed that fall every time I run it. Not every rig is the same, and not every line works for all rigs. Come on Miller, you know that.
Here is how it was supposed to happen: This was on 38" TSL's that really measure 35.5" when aired down

Either Kore beadlocks, Longfields, or the locks from OffroadOverstock.com. All are right around the same price, and mount the ring inside the bead lip. The other make you weld the ring on the top edge. The inside method helps center the ring better.

I have the longfield beadlocks and definately recommend them.Not sure if the others do but the longs have the anti coning ring to keep the outer ring flat with the inner and also have nut inserts.I think you were there when I drove back from Anaconda with no tire right?no damage!
