what are we looking at as far as vehicle requirements??

My Tacoma is lifted 2" on 31" bfg all-terrains.....both diffs are open now and I doubt I will have my lockers by then.....the truck is pretty capable but I don't want to hold up a group with an underbuilt rig.

thanks.......I am always hesitant with these things........I have wheeled on rocks in Arkansas , in mud and hills / trees in ohio, and sand here in MI but never snow......it sure looks fun but I figured I better ask.

TnT are in. So will Extra Big Daddy Triple Sissy Boy make it or what. And what about PeteC. Maybe this could be a run of old timers. Calling Grandcheroke, Sukyjunk, Grandman, Hurf and older relatives, and all the oldie but good ones out there. Oh ya and Brewman because we need a super hero driver. Da20 if Lisa would let him show, and Lisa too.

I might be able to make it. My grandparents have a place on Starvation Lake. It all depends on if I take my Jeep. I'll be up from the 26th? to the 5th? I think. It will be my first snow run. I have 2" of lift and 32" A/T.I hope I can make it.

The TJ is having issues that will be addressed soon, along with the lift and gears. But, no plans for it to be out until Bruce-a-palooza.

I will be at the MudQueen Ice Run this year though. Tom, reserve my room, would ya? Thanks.

Now, as far as Da20 goes, well he has not even started on his Jeep yet. I think he has most of the parts. It will get done before the Ice Run as well, pretty confident about that. And then he and Lisa will be tearing up the trails ......legally with tread lightly in mind at all time.
