    Anything but the 4-6 loop! I think I've got it memorized.
    BTW did you find the note on your wiper? I went the wrong way on Concord and it threw me off.

    I'll be there. Lets go up 6 to 7, then turn on 8 then on to 9, run back into 8, stay on 8 until it hits 4, take 5 out over water crossing-did it last year on the Thurs. before Dixie-it was great. Steve

    I still have not got to see 9. was it hard for you. Dep said it was real hard. I have heard others say that as well. The highest chance of a rollover is on 9 I was told.

    O.k. lets do this, lets all sign up for the same run if we can. That way we will get all the K5's and Suburban on the same run on some hard stuff. This should also attract a bunch of attention to us and hpefully bring a magazine over. Especially if we pick one of the better trails, like 9,11,2 or something challenging. Keith, Titianic, Grim, BigJim, anybody else, what do you guys think?

    I am locked front and rear, so is Keith and Titanic, Jim in the rear, Grim said he will be locked front and rear by that time. Smallest tires would be Jim with 35's if he is still that size. Keith, Titianic and I all have winches.

    9 is hard, but not that hard, most people roll because they get over aggressive or they let the crowd agg them into doing stuff they would normally not do.

    I might want to go. I hopefuly will be on 36" swampers, 6" lift, 14 bolt rear w/ 4.56, hopefuly dana 60 front, new engine. Problem is i don't want body damage. Think I can still go up there and have fun? If not I might go up there and ride with someone.

    You would have to atleast expect some body damage everytime you go out [​IMG]. It's inevitable...it happens....first ding may hurt, but then you get used to it [​IMG].....
    take your truck out there and have some fun!!
