Ok boys and girls we have 74 days until the start of the Bronco invasion/ Bronco Safari. Time to test your rig and make any changer to achieve reliability. Make reservations to stay somewhere. Most important be there.

Blue I did not see an answer but you should have no trouble with Top of the World. IT was a nice drive. Except for my starter and nicks? Tie rod? I am sure Dusty will have his go fast there as well.
I'll have to research the tougher trails. Was top of the world one of those all day runs? For some reason I though that was part of triple threat.

I gotta get a roll cage before I can go too serious.

Top of the world is easy, it’s a decent bit of highway to get there though. It’s not part of triple threat.
To get to top of the world you go to the north end of town and take highway 128 for a while along the river, gotta be at least 30 miles or so. Once your on the trail, I can’t think of any obstacles that would require anything bigger than 33’s to get over

We did it on Friday and made it back for the Show n Shine. I think the hardest trail I went on was golden spike riding with @raleigh It was fun being a passenger for a change. Or maybe Moab rim which does not present a big roll over issue if you are careful. You saw the hard parts of Hells revenge didn't you?

Lol highway is no issue for the bronco.

I saw Hell's Gate and a couple hot tubs. I dont recall seeing the escalator. The gate sure looks scary, especially from the bottom. If I had a diaper, I'm sure the bronco could do it lol. I need a bit more experience before I try that. I only managed about 5-6 hours of trail time last year.

This is one of the rigs in our group who conquered the escalator. Keep in mind this is an obstacle you don’t have to go on to enjoy Hells revenge.

The Escalator is all about tire placement and listening to your spotter.... if you straddle that hole right any stock 4x4 can go up it, pretty sure a stock Kia went up it a few years ago. Get it wrong and get a tire in that hole, and it goes scary in a hurry though

Yeah, the Gate scares me more than the Escalator.

I did do the Gate last year... on foot!

There are a couple of things that have come up this year during the end of April beginning of May (moving) so this is a hard maybe. Put me down as a doubtful, but maybe.
