Hurry up Chandler! Don't take as long as TBob. And if your leafs are already bending, then you can't hurt them much more! WHEEL IT!

If you were thinking about wheeling your runner, to be honest, probably not good to go on this run even though it's easy. That is of course assuming you like your rocker panels. Sliders are basically a must if you do, not to mention stock height would not be fun at all, unless of course you don't care and GET SOME like Jaco.

I figure if you lead, and I'm right behind you for immenent Firehole driving, we're all good. We can finish the trail and run it twice and catch back up behind everyone.

We're prolly going to break off and run UAJ while you guy's make a career out of LWP & UWP :D

Maybe the Tacamas will make it a career. Besides the Firehole, I'll drive those in my sleep.

I think so. You may have to use the go pedal in a few spot, but nothing ridiculous. You might have to bypass LW(the whole trail is between 1/4-1/2 mile long and really easy except one spot that Tacamas with rear problems have fun with. It'd be easy to cruise past LW and drive backwards down it to this spot and then continue to UW. UW you'd be fine on, and has bypasses. I just want to hit Firehole on UW, that's pretty much why I want to do this trip. Looks like you're rollin 3" and 33's?

This is definitely stuff above Raw Deal. Nothing extreme though, unless you aim for it of course:xdevil:

If you have sliders, you can do the slider turn in LW. Used to do it in my Taco ifs all the time.

That area of LW is changed quite a bit now. There is some big rocks at the bottom where you would turn and the sand it washed out alot lower. In my Jeep I had to do about a 15-point turn last time because the lack of sand makes the rear slam into the rock you drop off of after the turn. I would advise against it as the short wheelbase vehicles are now having a hard time getting turned back up the trail after dropping in.

Bummer, been awhile since I ran LW. Guess everyone will need to check it out for themselves and see if they are comfortable doing it.

Spinnas
07-05-2007, 05:22 PM
For sure, I remember seeing Tacos doing it back in the day, it's for sure different. Last time I ran it I got all f*&ked up down in there and couldn't get turned back right and was just abusing stuff(which I normally do). Last time I ran LW with the built rigs, Sample and a couple other guys were smashing into some rocks with their rear tube/bumpers trying to get turned around. This is after previous trips with carnage abroad from taking the notch which is really deep now.

Spinnas
07-05-2007, 05:27 PM
This is the best pic I can find right now, but this is months ago and it;s worse now as the sand has gone down enough that more rocks the size of the ones in the bottom right are floating around in the area that used to be flat.
