Darn that was a tease! I wanted to see if the little red one could make it!

I'll take the metallic one please!

We ended up putting a strap on the red one, he got high centered on the skid, only took a tiny tug to get him off of it though.

Amazing the difference lockers make.

Don't suppose you know the GPS coordinates of that trail? I'd like to run it.
Is it close to Watson or way back in there?

Actually that was a few different trails all over that area, and I don't use GPS.

My family's been wheeling that area since the 70's... long before this "rock-crawlin'" got started.

Are you locked? I took a look at the pics in your sig-link. You've got a decent amount of travel, but these trails can get tight & harryreal quick in a full-size esp without a locker or two.

Yeah i think i can hang pretty well. More travel than i know what to do with, lol.
ARB's front and rear, high steer, 14" king coilovers, high pinion front, one ton rear, chromo shafts, full skids, tubular steel sliders and bumpers, winch, etc.
The truck was built to run with jeeps, the only trouble is when it gets narrow.

I'm pretty familiar with the White tanks but hadn't heard of that specific trail name.

Sounds like you're built for it.

Are you familiar with the wash called either "Firebird" or "Tax Collector"? Scorpion splits off of that wash.
