No, but I made it as far as any of the other built rigs did including a buggy. According to Jay, who was spotting me, I would've made it if I hadn't been such a wuss and would have bumped it harder Probably a true statement, but with age comes wisdom and I had a great time even without making that climb

The guy in the Dodge started where you see him in the picture and ended up spinning his wheels all the way to the right side close to the other tree. It was just like a ditch witch and dug a moat about 12" deeper all the way across. It was already dug out really bad and now it's even worse.

Unless someone does some trail maintenance and shovels a bunch of rocks and dirt back into the moat, I don't think anyone will make it up that rock unless they have a 150" wheelbase with no rear over hang.

If you look at my front tires you can see how close I am to hooking them over the lip that would have let it crawl up. If the moat had been filled in it would have gone right up it.

You need to post a picture of your new Tundra with the 40 on the trailer behind, and that big grin on your face!

Looked and the only pictures I saw are of the Tundra with an empty trailer!

Oh, come now, that line is easy

(ok, this was two years ago, I needed a couple of rocks under the rears, and I got high centered at the top. It has gotten much worse, in Nov I couldn't even get my nose up.)

It's a good thing you fessed up and told the truth, otherwise I was going to call you on it and we were going to Chinamans this weekend.

I bet you it is dug out at least 18" to 24" deeper than where it was at last Fall. I stood right there and watched the big dodge trench out at least 10"-12" just while we stood there and watched.

Yep, I've been up once, and never again
