Ran some trenches today.... video!

I don't how many member venture out in big groups... we had 25 rigs today in North Reno for some trench running.

One guy grabbed my camera and shot me going through...


Here is a vid I shot just prior to me going through...

We go out every Sunday morning.. from 5-35 rigs in all.... we have a blast!!

No carnage at all... its all in how you approach it and the lines you take... I am all stock steering with 2" BB on 31's..stock shocks and open front LSD rear with 3.07's for now....

The Bronco is built to the moon... TJ did a GREAT job buidling it.

Bills Rubicon is sitting on 35's with 4" lift and 2" BL.....

I think it's not so scary cause you can see the ground better than the big rigs because your low. Who says you need to be on a huge lift to wheel good. Haha. Or maybe you just have more guts than them.

That reminds me of a spot we have but it's like 20 feet I wish there was more. I wheeled all last week and didn't get stuck. Then we all took a poser pick and I managed to get into a weird spot similar to the terrain in this area. Parked. We all Bsed for a while. Got in to leave. And it wouldn't go anywhere. Turns out one of my buddy's just pushed my stinger and I popped out


You make me jealous of the land you have to wheel on. I like pa but nothing like that locally.

Yeah. Lots of truth to the being lower and all.

FYI. I am originally from NE PA. So I know what you mean about the terrain😉

Haha yea, my one friend could always run through a lot of the rougher stuff because he was lower. The while point of lcog builds I suppose. And then you really do get it. I like it here. Just not a lot of land to use. ESP legal land. Only private owned stuff and two parks.
