    I want to go to Tellico. I used to fish there all the time, but I've never wheeled it. I looked at some of the pics and the rigs that are going over those rocks are a little more extreme than mine is. Would I be getting in over my head?
    Here's what I have: 1976 Blazer good 350 and th350, np203 part-time, 3.08 D-44 up front, 3.08 12 bolt rear, 6 inch lift 35 x 12.50 mud rovers that have about 20% tread left. no lockers or limited slips.
    I'll drive it in 4 low mostly giving a 6.16 driveline ratio. I've got decent articulation.
    I have never seen what kind of terain Tellico has.

    I think with 308's and 35's your trans is gonna be upset, but just my thoughts. I think you'd still have fun on alot of the trails though.
    I might come up and bring my wifes fj40.

    The only thing that will hurt you is no lockers. My rig last year had 350/350/203 & 10B/12B w/35's 4-5" lift w/lockers F/R. The thing that got me last year was Qjunk carb on way off camber spots.

    TH350s don't care about gear ratio.

    Find you a winch and bring it on.:wink1:

    Elliott and I were just talking about tellico the other day. He finished his sliders and is working on a rear bumper. He also got some used 38.5 boggers for the rear and some used 39" iroks for the front. I need to do some work on mine before I take it out, and I have exams all next week. I hope to work on it after that....but wont be able to make it the 5th due to my school schedule.

    I would like to try out Tellico again. I've only been once and got maybee 10 minutes into trail 4 before I had to turn around. I would really prefer to take the "guided tour" of this place, as it seems that it could get real hairy really quick.

    I definatly need some skid plates to play around the rocks, but since I just got a shiny new clocking ring from Bushwacker, hopefully I can get my 208 up enough to make a some skids. I may try to do that this weekend.

    A good way to see a lot of the nasty stuff of Tellico is to google for pictures and vids. Its amazing what is out there. It can give you a good overview of a lot of it. After running slickrock twice now, it was amazing how much it changed in 2 years.

    Come on up next Saturday! You'll be in amongst the same size rigs and ya can see how they do as they pick a line and you can then follow or pick a different line. And having Blazer/Jimmy pilots spotting fer ya helps, they know you're truck almost as good as you do! :wink1:
