You think a stock 13' Rubi would have any issues, my buddy just picked one up and wants to come out.

Not on the North loop. That's a good stock rig trail. The south loop has been modified. I stock rig will end up working the undercarridge as well as bumpers on it.

Y'all know that Tahuya is the missus' favorite trail. If you can't make this one; we'll be back there soon.

Hi-

I'm a new Jeep owner, and I'd love to come out to Tahuya sometime! Are there any areas that a stock rig could handle solo? I'd love to get some practice. Thanks for any advice.

I swear, I was putting my tank in tonight, Brand new Straps and Bam it just broke.






Not only did I have to run a Die over the threads to make the nut fit on them, this one just broke I was fitting it into place and I felt it just ease over and break.

No big deal I figured, I still have one old one that is good. I just ordered 2 for good measure. so I put the new strap in place and they are to big...

There are plenty of trails there that a stock rig can do. I recommend never wheelin' alone. Too many things can happen. You are more than welcome to tag along with us.

If it weren't for bad luck, you'd have none at all. Are you going to have to source another pair of straps?

Here are some pictures I took yesterday. It was nice meeting you TripleNickle, look forward to seeing you out on the trail again. I would post a couple pictures here, but I can't seem to get the forum to let me do it.

Where did you almost roll? The kid has run it several times in her stock TJ. We have run it as a group a couple of dozen times. No body has come to close to rolling. Tahuya is one of the safest trails in the state.

Hopefully we will get a chance to wheeling together soon and I have the chance to see where you are talking about.
