The latter... as in sloping to the side, like if your driver's side was downhill from your passenger side.

Switch, did you run the Tecate Cuchama trail with the others last time? We could do that or other trails as well.

I was just trying to figure out where lockers would help out on a off camber situation vs open diffs. I suppose if its really steep, the tires on the up hill side would have little purchase therfore sending most of the power to them preventing foward momentum. Then again if its that steep, I would still want to be anchored.

Give me some more information on that trail. I may still be down for wheeling tomorow.

TOday was fun though, matt needs to upload his pics that I took. Matt did take a picture of me when i came so close to rolling though. Had like 3 wheels in the air.

Had my first rock crawling experience and my first battle wound. I found this riverbed with all rocks, some big ones, and i got my tire up on this rock, and then landed on the fender flares, bending them in. THen when backing up, i fell hard on the rock with my pitman arm i belive. It was great, but i defedntly need a lift before rockcrawling again.

P.S. That place really is dusty

I think your exaggerating a bit there Eric, but it is a ok place for being pretty close.

Throw in a lunchbox locker or 2 for now and it would have been a breeze for you as it was for me. Nice wheeling with you, have t do again sometime.

Looks like fun.

Heres Valley of the Moon. The silver grand blew out his rear super 35. Time we got him out it sounded like a can of marbles. We did table mountain at night. Went out to Carrizo Gorge. Friggin trail from the top down to the mine was so so narrow. The turn outs you couldnt do so into reverse you go. 3000ft down if you get a bad line. Truely a good pucker factor!!!!
