I'm interested, but not sure about driving my 40 there and back. Not because I think it wouldn't be fun, or that my rig isn't capable, but because of the extra time needed. If a group is going to go in on a car hauler for 40's, I'll seriously consider it.

Whhhoooaaaa.

Dang. I thought this looked pretty fun, and was seriously considering the trip. I'm hoping this is a case of "its the mag's truck, and we need to get some sweet shots for the upcoming issue" and not, "I drove this thing as careful as possible, but to no avail."

Yikes. Sounds like it is a trail more fit for a 40 than an 80.

If someone can even get me started I can begin looking into 40 haulers on 18 wheelers. I do believe they need your truck well in advance, and then it sits somewhere out in Cali until we get there right?

I'd be happy to look into this, should I look specifically at car haulers or maybe just a trucking company?

When we did it a few years ago the transporter needed the truck a week early. If you plan it right the truck will get there about the same time you do. Often the return ride is the same day or close to it that you leave. The transports do not travel as fast as you do so you will get your truck a day or two later. I-80 is a major truck route so there are many places to get it delivered. We had ours delivered to Carson City Nevada as Jerry Nichols son in law has a shop there.

There is enough monster diesel 1 tons in the club all that is needed is a transporter trailer or two. If you set that up it will be a whole lot cheaper, although there is some DOT hoops to jump through. I will check and see if the same shop in Carson City might be available for us. It has a large high chain link fenced in yard so our trucks would be safe.

If you can drive you can do it! I am on the fence about driving my 80 or hauling out the 40. I've never wheeled a wagon on the Con and not having to hassle with hauling the 40 is appealing. Like any trail there is an easy way through a lot of the stuff and several other options of greater difficulty. Don't let forum wheelers scare you! If you can wheel your truck on trails like Holy Cross and Blanca then you can wheel your truck on the Con!
