    Are you guys going to be running any trails to warm up for Moab? I am wondering if there are any runs planned soon.

    I'm thinking the 20th also, if I get a few other things done.

    So Brian, where are you planning on going? I would guess you would want to go to Florence, since it's close. Would you be up for Table Mesa? It's about 1-1/2 hours for both of us. I need to get my revenge on Anhilator /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    i think marv was palnning on one if he gets the buggy done.
    i wish i could come up there and help him out this weekend. but no money for gas and he has some things going on that are FAR more important that the buggy anyway. he needs to do that this weekend.

    now, as for next weekend i am game to go out. i have to come up there anyway. so, who am i riding with?

    How tough is Predator? Is there bypasses past some of the real hard stuff? I don't run alot of lift and clearence yet. Only 3" lift & 35" tires. I am 3/4 ton and locked though. What are the minimals for Predator?

    Harley, now that your locked, you can do it /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif. It will be tricky, and you probably will scrape some sheet metal /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif. Not sure if there are any bypasses....

    I know this is going to sound weak, but I don't know if I want to break my skills on a trail that is "tricky". I also want to keep my truck somewhat like yours, fairly straight sheetmetal wise. I don't have any body protection yet so I don't think on a trail that is rated 4.5+ that I can.

    I kinda want to wait until I can run something more along the lines of Upper Woodpecker. When I road along with you and that trail I liked what I saw. As mild as you like, or pretty tough (relatively speaking). I haven't had time to actually do and real wheeling on my new locked axles and 35's yet. I have alot of work left to do on my truck to make totally tough trail ready.

    Anyone have a spare seat I can fill? I want to get some spotting and interpretation of lines in if possible. Thanks

    Harley

    It's harder than Lower Terminator. Open diffs are not recommended.

    i ran predator locked in only the front. no body damage either, it can be done. there is one tough spot, but there is a bypass.
