truth is a lot of that trail is 2H - the longer straight sections with clearly marked wheel ruts etc

but the muddy corners - 4H

I ran all of the trail in 2h only engaged 4h to pull out elle. I didn't even turn off my ac. most of the trail was not bad only a few corners that is you didn't have mud tires or clearence you would need 4x4 (unless uh hum your wesley) anyway fords had the day like it or not. And even a 22'' (pretty truck) went a long ways into the trail. Props to the navarra riding on 22's gonna have to rethink my pretty boys truck remark. Anyway anyone who wants to test their mettle drop me a line I go out almost every weekend. (only thing broke so far is a right front dif/ axle seal) fun run can't wait for the next one. BTW if anyone wants recovery gear come get it fast I am almost out of stock.

people dont understand how crucial mud tires are. We have those same Kumhos on our Mazdas in work... We dont have to use 4WD for anything but the most demanding application. Not even Las Cuevas trail needs to be done in 4H anymore.

The difference between All Terrain and Mud Terrain is... wow...

^ are all well and great but most of us use our vans daily, where M/T won't be the best thing to drive on.

the ultimate solution would be to have a spare set of rims and mount M/T to them, come a diesel run, you switch.

...you also have to take into context clearance issues and cost of replacement - a full set of tyres and how long they will last vs a set of A/Ts


...james or wes could give feedback on M/Ts.

Yes, agreed! If your personal situation requires / allows or affords a set of off road / mud tyres. Then by all means yes. Same applies for other recovery equipment, winches, etc.

My job requires I have these tools to function. But personally, no.

This is why when considering the routes, plotting or charting the courses of our excursions we take into considerations what facilities are available, if required, and the skill level involved to negoitate comfortably, on tarmac and off road terrain.

People who make comments about our runs sounding boring, need to understand that if you DO get into trubble, you better well know how to get your ass out of it!

Daily Rant Complete.

x 2

also remember that the only way to know how to get your ass outta a situation is to practice getting out of situations

which would mean getting into situations, then getting out - the learning experience

but let's not misinterpret that statement - do not go and do craziness and then try to get out - that is madness

only them TTORC men with really prepped and equipped vehicles could do that

with teh right gear though we can learn bit by bit

^ ^ ^ good idea there Slack

James seems to know his stuff, we can learn a lot from him

TTORC can also help as they have teaching sessions sometimes (check their website), which are really educational, I may go to a few when next they having

But like 3Stage said, unless you have a fully outfitted rig, you can't go anywhere else with them

Dude, you just have to come prepared. Must have a Diesel Pickup (4x4 preferred for off-road runs)

Dont mislead ppl nah boy

This is not about off-roading, this is about experiencing the country. Off roading is not required, not mandatory to come on a run.

Many have hopped a ride with others when we go beach runs, etc.

So dont exclude anyone.

We just united by diesel not diffs
