No clue. After all the body damage, Not sure when were doing the next one. I found some weaknesses to the truck, and I will be coming back strong. Probably going to hit up 2 inch spacers on my wheels. and grab some rock sliders. Grab a ARB locker for the rear.

So we have atlease a month! :-) jk jk.

Wow you guys are brave tackling Evans in those conditions! I won't take my rig there until I'm exo-d. I've run passanger there last Fall and within 15 minutes we had a truck flop LoL

No thanks! I like my straight cab! The crazy vertical switchback trail with all it's off camber fun had me on edge.

EFI helps to

Im sorry to tell you this, But I dont think a Exo is going to help you much. Most of the damage was done by thin tree roots that stuck out too much. I think whoever designed it, designed it to do body damage. Even tho i turned wide enough to NOT hit the tree root. What happened is someone put a rock in a place I didn't see, and it caused the car to jump towards that big root.

People say Evans is one of the hardest places. I think Evans is the hardest place to not sustain damage.

I spoke with my brother. He said upper 520 is suppose to be one of the hardest paths. We would have been better off taking 197 down, than 520 upper.

yeah. I thought it was all pretty simple. I've never been there before, Jeff has been there more than acouple of times. His wheel fell off on 520 upper. (broke an axle).

I ordered some alum panties from Bud. I cant wait to get them on!
