That would be awesome if I can use it for this run, being my first run up there I think it would be very useful for me, so if you find it, I would be greatful.

Btw guys, my rig is undergoing minor surgery, I should have no problem finishing it before the 24th. But very very minor chance I might not make it. (Leak detection pump) as long as that clears my check engine light I'm good to go.

OK I think it best if we limit the number of vehicles to 10 for this run. I would need to here from Mountainneer and Jeepma79 and if they don't commit I will have two more spots.

Unfortunatley, I am still on the fence. Go ahead and open up my spot for someone that is able to make it. Dont want to keep someone from joining who's able to commit..

Fixed my LDP. Hopefully smog check goes through fine tomorrow. There is only one more knocking sound I want to check before heading out. But as long as I don't have any major surprises by next weekend I am in the clear.

Don't look for me. I had some medical problems in BB this last week. I am going in for tests and need to stay down at a lower altitude till they find out how bad things are.

Hey Randog,

My uncle and cousin have a 98 4RUnner pretty much stock, do you think they can join us or was this like a jeeps only group....

Also how do you think a 4runner would do on the trail?

Miller doesn't discriminate it takes all vehicles no mater what make. My friend Steve from the CI4X4 group will be joining us and he has a older 4 cylinder 4runner and he makes it every time no problems but I think he may have a small lift. But Yes it should make it and if it doesn't, it will make a nice monument along the side the trail .

Seriously, bring your Uncle and Cousin I think we will have enough room.

I guess we need a Disclaimer:

The trail will normally take about 4 hours to do with out trouble. That's why I want to limit the number of vehicles to 10 to minimize if there are any problems. Your vehicle should be in good mechanical condition with good tires. Front and rear recovery points and spare tire are required. 33in tires, one locker and a lift is recommended. Miller is fairly steep and has some sharp switchbacks with only one hard rocky obstacle towards the top. Most stock 4xs make just find but some get stuck. It goes with out saying, If you get stuck we can tow you off but you might get some damage to under carriage. Don't come if you have doubts about your vehicle, recovering vehicles on Miller is long process and not very fun.

Got it, I'll let them know so they are prepared or so they can get prepared for next time. Recovery points and a spare shouldnt be that hard to come by but I guess we'll see. Either way I'm in!
