As far as the concrete goes: no I didn't make it without a strap. My buddy did, but he goes really sideways with it. I think being on 35"s and a locked rear will make the difference there
Im both and it wasn't happening. It's a wheel base thing. Ive beaten the tractor tire obstacle twice. Last one I almost flopped it.

I wouldn't reccomend the notch line I took to a shorter wheelbase than mine. I ended up sitting on my rear bumper damn near dead vertical. A wrangler would have been much worse off.

With both lockers and your little higher clearance now you'll make it easy. I made it at TDS this year over the concrete pipe.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

So far the facebook page has 55 people attending - we'll probably get quite a few more in the next 10 days or so!

So I'll be heading out there Friday after noon and camping so I can catch breakfast and then go on the 10 am run. Anyone interested in a caravan or at least meeting up somewhere that evening?

Well, it's kinda weird, but then I am very weird anyway. I'm going out Friday aafternoon to help the TDS guys show off for the OHV commissioners, then I may come home to get Cathy, or I may spend the night there and have Karuma bring her with him. Either way, were gonna be there Saturday. Check your PMs
