My old 4wd explorer... Knee deep whoops at 55 where no problem and the limitation was the rear suspension!!! The front end was capable of WAY more then that and I wasn't even on coilovers. I also ran the rubicon trail once in it and only bypassed the little sluice.
I honestly 100% think that the setup you have in mind will completely scare the crap out of you at what it's capable of speed wise.
You really think TTB setups can't run the hammers???
I never said that it couldn't be done. I have seen it done on youtube and on the KOH site. The problem is that when you are taking a buggy through, damage is of little concern. To me, damage, is a slightly bigger concern.
I already know it is going to scare the crap out of me speed wise but it will be fun! That point got me when you told me that the build plan for your Expo pretty much mirrored mine.

If all goes as planned, you'll probably be away but I'd say come wheeling with me in May!
Reading the build thread for the Bronco that you showed me a while back that was for sale pulled around 24 inches before being bumped and strapped. That thing was amazing.
While I will be gone for the wheeling trip, I should come back with a pocket of cash. I should have a truck built in no time after that!

I think you will be happy with either gun. I'm am not one for a ton of customization on a gun so either would make sense for me. But I know you do like that and the Stevens would be a better choice. I'm a big ruger fan and that is what I would buy. BTW my ruger single six should be at the house today back from Ruger.
Andy, if you don't mind single action, single shot go with the encore, barrels/stocks are infinitely configurable. Don't think the trigger is easily adjustable though. IMO, if you want bolt action, go for the ruger. I don't know much about the other one, but ruger does provide excellent support and they're solidly built.
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!
