That was my fault. I typically like to take harder lines. Hell, if Bonez had shown, I might have even tried Rock Bottom. Oh, I still say Puck sand! Powr has two speeds, stopped and foot to the floor. Nucking futs.

that pile of **** was parked over by my house for a long time, directly behind sams town, on one of the 'shortcut' roads we use.
My Honcho needs a new front fascia, but I think that one's different and the bumper end that I need is bashed in the same spot as mine! looks rather multibondo colored too

Is potato still ok for stock height? I haven't been through for 4-5 years, all I did was scrape my hitch on the way down the Pahrump side. That was a while ago though.

Thus why he didn't get stuck....

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

i'd say potato is NOT stock friendly. depends on how far everybody is going though.

the red rock side is just a dirt road basically.

Depends on what you are taking through in stock condition and how much you are willing to push said stocker. But I have seen stock vehicles do okay going through PR with careful driving and taking all the bypasses. Keeping this in mind, PR changes regularly as people and storms pass through.

Stock humvee? No problem. Stock buick? Problem. Anything in between.. Meh, depends on vehicle and driver.

With a good spotter a stock tj should be able to get through. Powr is pretty close to stock and he did fine
