Thanks again Jeff for the lead! We had a great day, I was way impressed with how the 40 handled with the Lockright and MT/Rs! There was a lot of belly dragging (mainly front/rear diffs and springs) and a liberal use of the skinny pedal, but we all made it through! Like you said it was a great way to spend Father's Day!

I feel a little guilty about being involved with the jumping on the Chili to prevent a rollover, but I understand it's pretty much been a bad karma thing to do after the incident last year. But just a question that I think should be discussed before trail runs/driver's meetings etc. is what to do before an impending rollover and no strap is available to make a quick recovery? Do we need to be more prepared and have a strap out and attached when such a maneuver is likely? I'd like to see some discussion about this since it's been so common for people to jump on a truck on its way over that now that that's a no-no I think we should be prepared with another alternative in mind. Thoughts anybody?
