Ditto on what Puck said, if they are gunning for the most difficult trails out there that are considered buggy only, I would hesitate to take anything not seriously modified.

I have lockers and recovery points on my stock Rubicon, but it's not lifted or modified at all. It's stock.
I'll probably sit this one out then.

Doesn't mean you have to sit it out at all! I would plan on going as a spectator and taking some of the obstacles you and your rig are better set up for and steering around the stuff the buggies play on.

This is what I will be doing as well. I'll challenge myself and my rig, but hopefully minus the damage. I won't be going on the super crazy stuff.

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 plan on hitting everything my XJ is capable of doing. I hope to follow the buggies if if I can.

Most real hard obstacles have a by pass route to drive around. I will help any of you guys if you need a spot or a tug, if I don't think your rig is capable ill tell you, just don't get offended cause that's not my intention. I want to save your rig and make sure you have fun. Some of the serious obstacles we will be doing will require a 40" tire at minimum, lockers, boat sides, modified wheel base which will be buggy only but also again a lot of these obstacles are right off to the side of the main 4wd trail most of you can go on. Come out, we will get you on some fun trails and make sure you stay in one piece.

Anybody have an empty passenger seat? I want to go watch but don't want to take my Jeep out. I'll spot, work your cameras, etc.

I am going to be straight with everybody and say that I am looking for a seat before I know for sure that I can actually go.

When you guys are ready for Sand Hollow let me know, that's where the real hard stuff is at. Logandale has a few good obstacles but short trails. I would be more then happy to take stockish rigs out on any trail to show them around. Sand hollow has some great stock/mild modified trails we could do in a day. There are always some hard obstacles off to the side of most mild trails so the buggies can still play.

Heres some pics of my last two buggies (1985 Toyota and 1968 cj5) in Sand Hollow. No good pics of my newest buggy yet.

I want to push my rig to the absolute limit, and find out how far it can go before it fails totally.
