Some updates on my end: have not been to any of the off-road areas in CA but this weekend will be the first! Tomorrow myself and Nate will be in the high sierras. He was gracious enough to show us around! Despite any rock crawling I have been off payment riding through the desert to and from work and it's been fun. Where I live there is a lot of desert you can just drive through!
I have been searching for a third vehicle/tow rig and picked up a ram 1500 for an awesome deal! I got a trailer on order and it should be ready in two more weeks! We have some cool modifications planned for the trailer to make it safe and loadable without guessing. I am still trying to get some MTRs but they have been on back order for a while now.
I did install my 4:1 case that has been siting around for a while and it's pretty cool! My crawl speed is much slower and seems more consistent. I am excited to try it out tomorrow! That's about all going on here.
Sounds like your going to have some fun today. What mods are you planning for the trailer? I just striped mine down, re-wired and painted, then added tie downs and put an aluminum box on the front. I'm interested in what you have up your sleeves 👍
That looks like a fun trail , and the StealthJ looks like it did great .
I think your rig and Jeremy's rig represent just about the perfect practical and not over the top TJ set ups. His rig is just stupid capable. For his first time up he was schooling obstacles that I definitely had to literally "build" up to over the years. Super nice rig.
