I have a 2008 FJ TT and a 73 FJ40. I am a member of the Smokey Mountain Cruisers group out of Tennessee.
Welcome! Leave the wannabe cruiser home and bring the real one . Just kidding, all rigs are welcome.

Come on down to GJ any time! We have a few people from Glenwood who attend our runs. I ride a KLR650, if I get up that way during the summer I'll try to get in touch with you. I'm going to try to make it to the Cruiser-Q too!

Well, after last year and my excitement for this year, and even though I don't own a cruiser ... I got myself a TLCA membership.

You guys gotta open registration so that I can start focusing spending money on dinner night raffle tickets and such.

I don't know of anyone personally who has run it in an FJC. A quick search of youtube did not yield any videos of FJC's. Read the trail descriptions, watch some youtube videos of other vehicles on the trail and make your call.

Keep in mind you will have to have 35's and two lockers to even consider registering for it during CM.

Yes, I have seen two FJCs on this trail. It's doable. In addition to 35" tires and lockers, make sure you have a winch -- you'll be pulling some cable during the day. Almost everyone winches on Pritchett unless you have a rock buggy.

I did the Youtube and have asked around on 2-3 forums this is my first good answers. I have 34" tires, 2 lockers, 4.7 xfer, and about 3" off the belly.

Winch, check. I have a couple buddies that want to run it and I have run a bunch of Black trail rock gardens at Rausch Creek with them.
I'm thinking it might be easier to bow out from dif trail and get in on easier than the other way around. Is that a correct assumption?
