Erics issue on the FJ forum is that he upset steven by saying steven was bragging about doing it stock.
I personally didn't see it as bragging since everyone and their sister has done this trail stock. I did it stock with open diffs and 28.5" tires. Mike did it stock earlier this year. Nate did it stock, open open. Kyle did it stock. It is a trail that is tough for stockers. Thats part of the appeal for most.
I saw it as he was happy to have gotten through personally. As we all were the first time.
Anyway, Eric seems to have smoothed things over.
