I always backed out before that obstacle. For some reason, that one scared the crap out of me.

I'm bringing my 30 ft trailer that holds two rigs so if someone needs a tow I can load it on the trailer with my rig and get them back to Vegas at least.

Also bringing welder, 1/2 cordless impact, air compressor

Depending on how modified your rig is, we can prob get you through it with no carnage. I hope! Only one way to find out

I wouldn't attempt it with my current Jeep. My last one, in a heartbeat but my current Jeep is basically a stock 2004 Rubi.

Evermore, my ex will be known as the slimy **** that stole my Jeep.

That's not really funny...yeah, actually, it is pretty funny. Rofl In your opinion, can the rig handle that obstacle? It's got the teralow kit as well. Anyone else please chime in as well. Can my rig make it through without damage, with a good spotter and me with good throttle/clutch/brake control? I would like to challenge myself and the equipment, but not to the point of inevitable damage. I don't mind getting a little crazy, but definitely don't want to cave in a door, roll it down a hill, or snap a shaft or any other catastrophic mechanical failure. I'm in to having fun on some difficult obstacles, but can't afford to replace expensive damaged components.

Is the limiting factor me, the Jeep, or the no damage part?

Having not had the chance to wheel with you very much I would say the other two. In short, there is a reason they call those trails/lines buggy lines. Clearance, armor, quality components and being 100% okay with likely body damage are all key factors to these lines, again with no reference to driving skill yet.
Your rig isn't set up for these lines. Mine isn't either, especially because I don't want to risk that kind of damage.
