Yeah, I don't know if it will open this year or not. A couple of clubs in Sacramento took the Forest Service through Deer Valley for them to do their analysis of the trail last October. I guess we will have to see.

Hoping I can pull off the Metal Cloak 2.5 though but it's a good chunk of $$$.
Slickrock is a great trail, did it twice last year, one my favorite. I would suggest 33", 3" lift, rear locker and rock sliders and a winch, front lockers help after crossing the stream and climbing the rocks. You can do it with less, just expect some damage.

What kind of damage? Underbody to the skids? Or? If the lift works out in time I'll be sliders, discos, rear LSD (not sure if that will help at all but I got the factory option), no lockers yet, 2.5" lift and my basically 32" Duratracs.

I'm in for that. Might have a co-pilot (gf's co-worker) and who knows maybe the gf and the co-worker's wife depending on work schedules and such.

Hollister I'm down for. Slickrock looks like kicks as well! Then again I'm down for any sort of wheeling I can accomplish on any given weekend within a reasonable distance, which reminds me.

Anyone going to JV this year for KoH?

Underbody, wherever you don't have a skid :-; I have about 24" of side clearance under my rock sliders and I still bang them a few times. Easy to hang up on drive shaft in a few places and for wide rigs, there are a couple of tight off camber sections. If you have a spotter that helps. Also having real rock sliders v.s. Rocker panel ones helps.

I think you'll be OK with what you are describing, if going alone you may need a winch, I've used it to get up the rocks after you cross the stream, otherwise you'll need to turn around and head back to Lake Alpine.
