I think you did great. As Steve said, a small lift and some slightly bigger tires and you'll be walking that trail like that Jeep Wranger did. He had 35's, a 3" lift and was totally unlocked front & rear.

Were doing a 3" lift install on the hoist next Saturday, feel free to come by and watch & learn. If you do decide to install upgrades, there are plenty of folks in the club that are willing to lend a hand.

I think Mike Davidson took a ton of pictures, hopefully he'll post up and save the day.

Great day of wheeling

This is the first obstacle on the trail and my dad making it look easy.

More pics...might be time to take the camera in. The sand from Utah and Wyoming finally boogered up the focus.

I'm surprised at the difference in snow, or lack of snow, in one week.

Thanks as always for the great time, everyone. My father had a much better time this year, compared to last
