You go all the way to Acton?
We roll from the Avi casino to the Acton campground. We are camping two days in one location this year (Caruthers Canyon) So that should pick the speed up.

we eun it both ways, figure hell if were gonna drive to laughlin may as well take dirt. most of our rigs are towed to slash X. we start at harvard road and end at the avi, spend the night at the river palms (the parking garage is secure and perfect for the rigs, wake up and go from the avi back to harvard road.. if we could find the route that starts or ends in barstow we would.

that video is pf me, it looks slower then it is due to camera location, we hit lots of 50mpg in that section. here a video from the guy behind me with the camera mounted lower on his bumper.

i went and looked at the jeep today and he has the same color, same fenders, same rocker guards, and the same wheels/tires. the only difference is it looks like this one has been tipped. did your buddy ever roll his?

love the HDR on the pic. still like the original better. btw how are they on sand? i have them and i know they are 'baja' inspired never actually ran them on soft sand. mine are running low, in the point to decide wether i get mt/rs or another set of the red letter grabbers
