That's what I got. In reverse order again for some reason I have yet to figure out.

Fun day, good to wheel with you again Yancey and Scott. Patric, good wheelin with ya.

Truck worked great, other than my shackle bolts not wanting to stay tight.

Park Creek was a great addition, never run it before.

Didn't make it to the end, but I think we did the fun part of the trail.

Tall in the front for sure. Thinking about pulling a leaf out of the pack but otherwise phenomenal. Few things to shore up before Moab, but really psyched about it. Everything just seemed to work well.

Good wheeling with you too Mark, Scott and Patric. Thanks again for setting it up.

I look forward to our next trip.

Nice shot of where my diff kept hanging up. That was a PITA part of the Park Creek Trail, but I had still fun!

BTW, thanks for all the pics.

Thanks for spelling my name right!

Yeah, not sure what to think about the lift being so high, I definitely want more of a low rider but have no desire to redo anything at this point. May pull a leaf and see how that rides.

Plane Crash seems to change every year, as most trails do. Still made it to the end in less than an hour taking our time with four rigs. Adding that section of Park Creek made for a great day as it was actually more difficult than Plane Crash.

Meh.

Have you seen the condition of my rig? Those aren't speed holes.

I actually like the wheels better than I thought I would.
I definitely prefer function over prettiness anyways, didn't put much thought into the weights when I had 'em done. I was just so excited to get those MTR's mounted up for their first time EVER!

I find that the Traildamage ratings seem pretty old as many of the trails have changed significantly.
I say that short section we did could make it a solid 6.
Though keeping in mind some other 6 rated trails could be cake, while this one gave us some trouble.
I've definitely run easier trails that were rated this hard.

6+

hope that helps!

I agree. That real rocky section and the section next to that log were a bear!

Hence Patric and I singin' "I wish I had a locker" blues.

It's all good through, better trainin' for better drivin'.
