If a stock FJCruiser can make it your 32's and a lockright is fine

although that a-trac is a wild card you don't expect. It amazes me EVERY time!

Mine wasn't on that obstacle. I think it was after when it was getting dark. I remember hearing a bang and saying to Ige, "I didn't even see that rock." she said she didn't either. I think the rear right went down a bit and thats why the DS got hit. I am just guessing. Didn't notice any driving issues until we hit pavement.

Lots of fun as usual. Glad Robbie choose to do another run with us. It was fun seeing Robbie wheel with his lifted FJ and Chris with his new yellow FJ (not lifted). You could tell they were having fun taking the harder obstacles. After a season of wheelin them they were being more aggressive. I have some good video of them, as well as the rest of the guys. But, I will need some time to get them edited and posted.

After we got Uriís runner back together he eased over the tough line on the optional obstacle Russian style. Oleg running around shouting\spotting in Russian. Treeroots FJ40 sure is built up nice and fun to watch. He had the hard line on whale rock under control and almost whipped. He just needed to go for it promptly while he was in the vertical position. An un-nerving thing to do Iím sure. It was nice seeing Rachel tackling a tough trail in her 3rd gen runner. She did well and Iím sure she learned a few things. Sheíll be spankiní the boys on the trail soon.

Oleg pointed out a new line on the double slab which worked well for me. I also took a new line across whale rock that was fun and clean. I had a good day.

Cool report. Glad you guys had fun. I've been spending my weekend ripping the manifolds apart, and other associated fun things.

Ran that trail last weekend. My 1st "real" trail in CO. I loved it.

And guess what...

I wrecked my rear driveshaft as well.

It's not the equipment a person has as much as the line a person takes! Wes did all of Chinamans yesterday with bald 31" bias tires! He never got strapped!
