    When you say harder trails, exactly how much harder are they, and are there bypasses around these harder trails? so if people that went couldn't make it over they could wheel along?

    You are not running armaggedon. That is a big dog trail from what I understand, and I think it is the one I walked off Lower Terminator. You will need a beast of a truck to run that. I won't go anywhere near it in mine.

    Armagedon is the trail off Lower Terminator isn't it? I won't run the trail, but if I need to I can drive in from the top and people can use my truck as a winch point or I can winch people. My Warn 12K's brake is worn so I can't hold alot of weight but I can pull hard. As long as pulls are continuous it is fine.


    If this is going to be the CK5 big dawg run I will volunteer to be there with my truck and be there for winch point support vehicle, parts boy, whatever.

    That trail is Anaconda. Armageddon is hard I have heard it is a 4+ trail. So all are welcome to come watch . I don't know of any bypasses on the trail. Bring Lunch! By the way I talked to my buddy and he said he has heard you need at least 38's and lockers. Don't know. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Theres a pic of the rig were taking in my members gallery. Under 4 link.

    How is that knee doing? did you get the surgery? How long till your back in business on that bad boy? As long as I don't have other plans and some of the CK5 guys are going to run it I will go watch at the very least.

    57" Ford. A pair would be great if anyone has a lead. My passenger side bent into an "L" and the drivers side is collapsing...

    The knee is doing good, thanks for asking. Got out of the brace on friday and started PT yesterday. I can almost walk on it with out crutches but man is it sore.

    I definitely want to go out and watch the BigDawgs run. I'm thinking I should able to walk well enough by then to get around.
