    Hey I am Clay, I have been having a lifted 4wd for about 2 years now and only put it in the mud twice. I am hoping to start hitting some local events with you guys! My truck is a F150 on 38's with a fresh 460. She still needs a little work here and there but I plan on seeing you guys on the trail soon.

    Thanks for the help! That's both my rigs, the Tahoe is 4X4 even though it looks like a limo and it only has 98,000 miles. The ford is just about ready for a trail ride, I need to add some front tow hooks then she should be ready to go if nothing else breaks ha.

    nice looking rig but it'll be a challange on most of the properties like easley and daniels. People have done it with full size rigs but few have made it out without trail scars.

    A good move would be to catch the work days when they come up. A large part of the reason the trails aren't full-size width is because there are no big body rigs coming out on the work days. Bring your truck and we can have a better point of reference to how wide they need to be.

    Also, with the introduction of the JKs, it's a lot better for the full-size guys, since the JKs have the same WMS as the half ton trucks... they're just not quite as wide overall, but it's at least better.

    Thanks for the heads up, didn't realize the trails were that tight. By trail scars are we talking scratches and dings or more like dents...

    I can handle a few scratches:) If my work schedule allows I will make one of the upcoming rides this month.
