If so, I might make it a Saturday Day Trip If I can find the time to fix the oil pan gasket leak...
Yes sir. The 1's-3's are very much doable in a basically stock zuk. As a matter of fact, Zuki-Rookie above has a SPOA, locked rear, on 28" TSL's zuk, and did extremely well on everything up to a 3, & even made a couple of 4's with a bit of a challenge. Metalleg above was on 31's (basically street tread) SPOA, welded rear. managed to hammer that thing up a couple of pretty nasty 4's.

Honestly the 1's I think I could drive the dually tow rig down. 2-3's my DD Tacoma would make no problems, 4-5's is where my "buggy" is at home.

Would love see you down there. & I thought that oil leak was a factory supplied option?

Hmmm. Might have to consider trying to swing Fri off. Dan & Nate, just take the boys out of school. I'll teach them more in a day than the school system will all year. Bring the RC's, we'll discuss gravity & physics as they relate to a motorized vehicle.

You know, my boy brought up the fact I sold the rc crawler even though he REALLY liked it. He told me he was really upset that I got rid of it.

And the wife is going to try and swap weekends with someone but I doubt she'll have much luck finding anyone to work a holiday weekend for her.

My rig isn't exactly stock, but the operator is starting to fall apart.

I suppose I could not fix the oilpan gasket, but I might go through a couple of quarts of oil driving it there and back...

Probably outta fix that oil pan then. As for the loose nut behind the steering wheel, that might not get much better between now & then.

I want to try to get a video of someone trying to climb that cliff again. There is something interesting about seeing a Jeep lying on it's roof while a coole of liquid refreshment comes rolling down.

If it's dry, you can probably watch me try it. If it's wet, well, I know my limitations better than that.

That guy definitely took a flopping on it, about took his whole front clip off.

I'd say he had a little liquid courage as motivation. That and a sense of showing off for the crowd. I'll watch idiots flip their rigs all day. I am really looking forward to testing out my upgrades and conquering trails that I struggled on last time.

With a front locker now too, the little sammi on 28's that could outta tackle alot of the 4's with ease too.
