    Never been to carnage, think I can do it with my blazer? I only have 10 bolts open and no winch. But I am off that day so I would be down to go.

    That would seriously surprise me. Are you sure you ran Carnage and not Lefthand? Also, remember that there will be LOTS of ice running through the canyon.

    Always check the trail report for yourself or ask the veterans. What some guys see as fun you might see as an unholy gathering of daemon spawn.

    Got the day off from work so I can go. I just need to put in this stupid steering box and I will be ready. Where and what time are you thinking of meeting?

    See, I would not consider winching and lots of body damage to be going through the trail with "very little problems".

    I'm not doubting you, I'm just trying to keep people from trashing a nice vehicle on a trail they aren't equipped for.

    I saw a stock blazer do carnage, took him a while but he did it. I have also taken 2 stock Cherokee’s through with little rocker damage. I think you can do it with a little finesse.

    I stand by what Chris says.

    Here's what firefighter184's truck looked like after his first run on Carnage:

    Although "finesse" is not high on his list of concerns. :haha:


    This was my brother-in-laws truck after the same run. He was as careful as he could be, and used a lot of caution.

    Here's my damage:

    I could have been more careful, though.

    Look out CC it appears to me you have a couple of, not yet dry behind the ears whippersnappers, that are going to show you old guys just how you go stomping around in the big rocks. I know what happened, you guys actually ran the trail, but all of those really big rocks just jumped out and grabbed your trucks. But man, from now on that just isn't going to happen with those younguns' showing you how! In my opinion is is just better to keep your mouth shut and learn.

    Not me. I wish the General was in a state that would permit me to go. :crazy: I'm itching to get out and try out the new equipment.
