I got some wheel adapters, we just need a hitch and 3 tanks of gas and we will be there.

Oh, and somehow getting those tires on my Jeep. I'm gonna need a ton of bumpstop.

Rubiclone, I will be looking DOWN on you

I should also float across any water/mud.

sorry, i totaly missed this post last night....Yes i live in BC...Well and lima oh during the week....Chad lives in richland. Thats plan i had brewing had something todo with a 30 foot double car hauler. lol So getting home shouldnt be a issue anymore. Its just we dont have the goosneck plate for it...The truck has rails in the bed just no hitch....also we dont have a spare tire yet lol. So....Im still working on it....Ill by the stupid hitch and have it overnighted if i have to...My dad just bought the trailer in the fall and we havent used it to haul anything yet so we are kinda unprepared.....but its all going to be worth it when we roll chads jeep off the trailer with 35 inch bogger hahah

last time we went in the fall it could have been done in 2 wheel for most spots if you had too....But im sure you can get it in 4wd

But if theres snow you will probally need 4wd

liv2mx beat me to it but YES you will definately need four wheel drive.
There is going to still be a lot of snow, deep water, and plenty of mud.
The trails are somewhat narrow so full size trucks may have a little difficulty in a few spots. Be prepared for the worst and pray for the best. I just look forward to a hot lunch this time.

i am going to try and make this. Is there room for a tow vehicle and trailer to park? I like to tow because then if anything happens i can just load back up and header home w/o thinking too much about it
