You did this for fun? If so the common sense part in me says, "This gets very expensive if something does go South." The only way I'd do this if I were driving YOUR truck.

Wow. That was intense :)

Among off roaders, I am an oddity, as I love riding my dirt bike in that rocky stuff. Well part of it is the rocks are above the tree line here in Colorado, and the scenery is stunning. It is a different experience on a dirt bike, finding spots in the rock obstacles that can be traversed in a surgical way. Wheeling that sort of thing in a truck takes a lot more commitment, and luck perhaps.

One time in Moab, I was on the slickrock and there was a ledge, and a downhill landing area, and an FJ Cruiser with a spotter crawling through. A flick of the throttle on my 450, caught some decent air, laid it over a bit while in the air, smooth as silk landing on the perfectly angled downhill slope - spotter guy was hollering and cheering. It was awesome. :smile:

lmfao

I cant believe you took it down there. Not because it's overly technical or anything but because those rocks are so sharp. It's like the sidewall is asking be be sliced.

That is why I have a full size spare. I'll just buy another tire when I get back to town.

Great video, Good driving - I don?t think I would do that with my truck. but your truck handled the rock climb well, do you have a lift on your truck??

What brand sliders are you using?
