I'd like to see a pic of how much they filled in the bottom, it gets over a 3' ledge at the bottom that makes it near impossible unless you have a long wheelbase and 40+ tires.

I've seen a wrangler on 35s do it when it wasn't dug out terrible.

Beefy's video of Chuck on 44's with a much longer than 104" wheelbase gives an idea of what it was like last summer. If they didn't fill the bottom, that's a tough climb. I was teetering just pulling up on it with 39's and a 104" wheelbase.

I'm at 118" WB and my weight distribution is very far forward.


And here is Gregg again

Oh I pulled up on it last time I was there, but my f'n tires were at 10+ psi since I was having issues burping beads on my old rims that weekend. I tried it a few times but ended up passing.

Went racing again this weekend. Ended up playing a game of chicken with a pretty big tree. It was a tie.
