I have a new favorite trail. HOLY CRAP this trail kicks some ass! It has potential for MAJOR carnage. Making it through relatively unscathed is an absolutely amazing feeling. This trail took me to a new understanding of my truck and all I got to say is SUPER FREAKING WEEEEEEEE! ! ! ! !

Here are a few pics from later in the trail, early on had some great photo op areas but it seemed folks (me too) were more interested in watching everyone than taking pics. I hope that I can find some pics from others that were on the trip as there was some amazing obstacles through out the trail.

Cool deal Mike. I like the last pic. That fall is an interesting one. And Bob went wheeling? Could it be true? I should have brought out Lil' Blackie for another attempt at the firehole!

And who broke the D44 joint? Could it be Mike........... or Eric............?

Bob, went shotgun. I broke my 30 year old stock shortside parts. Next time out, both sides will have the AlloyUSA chromo's and their x-joints installed. The stock stuff took some abuse before I killed them.

This is perhaps some of the worst Tacama spotting I have seen Eric! He needs to be about a whole tire to the passenger side with the front to stay on the little ledge for about 3 more feet and his slider won't hang up. I can see in the video that Eric reached this little ledge and he didn't have a problem.

Full width, yes sorta. Eric and I are both running 78/79 Ford Bronco high pinion dana 44 front axles. They are not as wide as 60's, but wider than the old school broncos and trucks. The front wms is about 65" and I am 81" outside lug to outside lug and I believe Eric is 83". I am also running the 9" rear from the same Bronco and it has about a 64" wms with the disc brake conversion.

Get your junk done so we can go wheel.

I had problems on that fall just before the squeeze towards the end of the trail.........I tried to climb it from the right going left up the ledge and the rear slipped into the hole when it was starting to climb.......I got hung on my passenger link and wedged into the crack on top of the ledge......I tried to back out of it but the hole truck started to unload off the ledge like a slinky so I jammed it back into drive and pinned it into the wedge before it did go over.

1 little tug from Carlos and it came right up...........then I proceeded to put on a "GIT SOME" show on the next ledge.........i think that's where I twisted and crinkled my rear driveshaft a little! :D

Don't worry Eric, the supercharger will aid in parts breakage. One day the gettin' some will occur and the supercharger will boost and parts will fantastically break. I don't care if it's 35-spline chromo D60's. That is, if gettin' some occurs. Anything can break, you just have to fix it till it does:xdevil:

I have lots of regard for my truck. That's why I was able to get through with just the scratches when dents were a complete probability. The passenger side door was courtesy of Woody's Wash and a tire losing traction....BAM.
