Myself and the Rockfrogs ran this trail Saturday and man what a nightmare. I ran that trail a little over a year ago with much less trouble.

Took us 12 hours to get 5 rigs thru, lot's of Carnage by all, That trail is MEAN

Wow, that's a seriously hard core trail. Those videos really show how difficult it is.

Yes very extreme, I've got a crushed drivers door, happened after the Vnotch. The old 4runner has alot of body damage.

I'll post up some damage pics later.

I remember last time I did that trail, I was looking forward to coming back, now it is so much harder, I don't want to go back.

Another in the series of trails that the rebuilt Chili will never see...

That is some seriously nasty stuff there. Glad you made it back in one piece!! I mean, besides my personal interest in same...

Does this mean you will be seeing a steady stream of 4Runner body work in the shop??

I think I'll be getting him at least a fender and a lamp


His tailgate used to be straight too


This club decal was just put on that morning


Jeff's 4runner has some tube door damage and a weird crease in the pillar


My door used to be straight


And my very custom fender, is now more custom

Ouch... I got Yoda Jim's last straight driver's side fender for my son Saturday, but he is complaining about owing me for it, so he may turn loose of it. $43 or so with tax, so that is 'affordable' if it isn't 'findable'.

I made the body shop manager cringe with every scrape of my 4Runner I don't really mind the damage, however I would like to get the driver's door back on before winter
