    Yeah there was a post on pirate asking not to long ago asking the same. One burb was photo there. Willywanter has been through there and he has a 165" WB IIRC anyways its long as F. I would try it if it was closer. Just need to take your time and bring a reliable spotter :burb:

    From what I'm seeing, no one on this thread has "been there", so we gotta start gathering info. About the time we become experts, we should go.:D

    At furst I thuat that wurd was mispeld or a type-o, but no, thats de rite wey.:rotfl:
    For Rubicon, I think we would need to seriously discuss communication, as in CB. For all day long yakking, we'll need something universal and with good range etc. I've been on a three day trek and CB is extremely efficient.

    Jeepers may not want to risk getting stopped behind a seriously wedged full size.:haha: I'm going to order some video, thats got to be cheaper than busted driveline junk. If anyone already has a vid or is buying one, post here; maybe we can share/rotate.
