Trail times vary from 5 to 7 + hours. Major break down and you hear stories of mid night or later on the trail. Yes pack a lunch daily and bring plenty of liquids.

Hard to say what set up is best. Some guys swear by 33" tires and dual lockers. I am running 36" tires, 5.5 inches of lift, low gears, dual lockers, V8 and am still at 90 inch wheel base. Took me a full season to learn how to drive it without flipping it. My advice is don't follow an 80 over obstacles! Pick a 40 line or follow an experienced 40 driver with enough patience to get you through the trail safely.
