Thanks guys for the offers but the thing is this is a fabrication nightmare, not a matter of bolting stuff up. I have way too much stuff going on at the same time. Completely new steering, long arm in front, three link in back. No way to separate it out into separate projects, I knew that when I started, so it's just getting the next piece of the puzzle in and going on to the next. Just gets to be hard figuring out what the next piece of the puzzle is sometimes.

Thanks Doug I think I might bring my truck over if I can ride shotgun with you. I haven't missed a Chinaman run yet and I hate to start now. Besides, if you can't scare the shit out of me no one can

If this nightmare that I'm working on does what it's supposed to I'll be doing Carnage after I work the bugs out on Penrose. Then I can return the favor

How bad of a trail is it? I have heard of it but never heard from folks that have been up there. I have a decently built rig, if all runs smooth I am in as well.

How bad is it?? or how good is it??
33's or bigger. lockers help but not required. it's a very fun trail that gets your heart pumping from time to time.

Perfect, I am on 33" duras with 3 rock krawler suspension. No lockers but haven't needed them yet and I have been on Saran Wrap and Eagle Rock. I have a winch and such. So sounds like I should be good. Dora everyone here run a CB?

I believe I'm in as well. I've been wanting to do this trail ever since moving to CO. Will be coming from just north of Denver so would enjoy meeting up and traveling along with a group, if possible.

Should be fun. Good driving and bypasses and such you can do the trail almost stock. Cool guy lines and hitting every obstacle on the hard line takes a bit more

So as it sits I have 2 tjs both locked 37s and 38s and a good chance of another 4dr mostly stock but top shelf driver coming with me. G-roc and chad. Are in for sure. Few others I have not yet wheeled with and a good chance jäger is coming as well. Should be a great season kick off
