Darn, that's pretty rough. Were they supposed to be spotting for you? A lot of the time passengers aren't very helpful. I had one that laughed the entire time I was on an unplowed road covered in fresh snow in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado during the winter. He thought it was funny as I had many a pucker moment. Some people just don't take things seriously.

Well I thought I was understood to watch for huge jeep destroying tree trucks... But apparently he didn't think so... oh well. Atleast he wasn't my friend.

I know how frustrating a bad spotter can be. A majority of the time I was fortunate enough to have buddies riding along that actually knew what was going on when I was out at Badlands.

So as you all know I need to get my spare off roof due to MPG's being terrible. This is something similar to what I want to make but need to know what wall thickness to get. I was thinking 3/16's. Too small?
