So I will be there but my tire chains will be staying home. My brake lines are way too close for comfort so they will not be going on. It's much harder to put chains on mud tires than all terrains as they get stuck in the lugs.

With my locker and 32s I will be fine aired down to 10 or 11 psi.

calling a limited slip differential a locker is like saying your goodyear GSAs are great mud bogging tires;  you can say it, but its not true...............  just sayin'

i have a lsd; it is most definitely not a locker...........

have fun tomorrow!!!!!! should be great weather :)

Great run guys!

Once again the leaders of this run from CJA did a great job showing us beginners how to wheel safely and respect the environment. I learned a lot from these guys as usual. Even had to use the front tire 'dance' which I learned from you guys to get me out of a situation where I thought I was stuck for sure.

The only down side to this run is when I freaked out when I thought I was lost in the wilderness near the end of the run. Unfortunately, I have a true phobia of getting lost in the wildernesss due to a tragic experience earlier in life. However, the guys I was with did what they needed to do to find me and get me back on track. Thanks guys! Sorry for the drama!

Sincerely,

Jeff

You're right Johnny if we are talking a factory LSD.

Great day, great leadership, great group....all good!!!!  Hardly spun a tire all day, without wearing chains!! ;D  Love Duratracs!!! :D

Thanks to all for a wonderful day in the woods!!!

Going out with a freshly installed kit is always interesting.  Have a few 'noises' to chase down this week but worked reasonable well.  Front end seemed to bottom out a lot, and even without the weight of a winch on the front.  Glad I put the rock rails on too!!  :o

The conditions are very little ice and very little snow, so on most of the hills you could crawl them, on the odd ones were you spun a tire they quickly found rock and got some grab.  To be honest they could use a little more snow to add a little more dynamics to the runs. 

Having said that it was a great day, beautiful and sunshine......great to get out.

See you all on the first.
