Compared to your buggy, everyone else has a mini copper.

I try and get there around 830 to get on the trails around then.

I would be bringing the 2011 with the pre-2008 axle blocks and torsion bar keys and 31" tires. Both axles are the factory unlimited slip differentials. Eric has seen the truck and me drive off road at the Badlands. He would be the best judge of what the truck is capable of taking on.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

See my comment above, regarding triple black diamond trails.

I want to attend a TRS event but I'm afraid I'm not qualified and won't be any time soon.

There will probably be someone there with an empty passenger seat.

That's the spirit! Go. Have fun. Ride-along can be fun and you can learn stuff from each other.

Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
If it's like that, I'm most likely going to attend.
Anybody here would be willing to have a passenger for the day, go for it!

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
I have a GMRS in both the truck and SxS (still don’t know what I’m taking) and 2 hand helds…. We should be good there.

I may have an open passenger seat… waiting for an answer from the kid.
