Would it be wrong if I show up in my truck? That last run on 2N06X I lost both rear mud flaps, hit the mountain with my front corner and scratched it, bent up my muffler and I got a wicked vibration in the steering around 50 mph (may be wheel balancing issue?).

It would be wrong if you didn't.

Any rig is welcome as the choice always remains with the driver.

Awesome day. I managed to survive the trail with only my alignment getting borked. Mike was not so lucky. On Sunday morning when leaving the campground, Mike heard a clunk coming from his rear axle. We believe that he broke a tooth on his ring gear. We were able to limp it to Fawnskin where he got it towed to a local shop. Hopefully its not too expensive of a fix.

What a trip! I had a blast in Monster Ram. After I split from the group I took 3N16 east to the dump then 2N02 all the way to Pioneertown, something like 50 miles of dirt. :banana-guitar: The truck did incredible, a few new dings, a little more play in the steering but all in all it's still in good shape.

Sunday the 18th I am doing the John Bull Loop in the Monster if anyone wants to join, probably hit gate keeper east around 9:30 or so. If we can get through John Bull early enough I am going to hit 2N06X again! :D

Enjoy the Vid!
