Wow, what a trip. Thanks for sharing. That Sonoran Steel bumper looks a lot better than you stock one did at Johnson Valley

Great adventure, story and photos. Thanks for posting!

One comment about the dog in the photo. If they really did give the dog Tylenol, then it was probably in distress and could've died. Tylenol is a big no-no. It kills by destroying the dog's liver. The best non-prescription pain reliever for a large dog like that is one adult aspirin a day with food.

Mark,
Great pics and captions! Couple questions-
1. Why did the Jeep&trailer laugh at you guys (at the beginning of the trail)?
2. Couple places Dutch couldn't make it, did he use a bypass or something?

Your 4R looks great! Love the wheels :thumbsup:

Thanks FirstToy.....Our rigs are rare out there..the Heeps think they own the place-they are very close to being right-when they see a rig that in there opinion is not 'Rubicon capable' they tend to give a chuckle..now not all of the Jeepers where that way, the next ones we saw actually gave us some encourgment. There are bypasses for Little sluice and a couple of others around some tough spots, but for the most part-your goin through the hard way.

Let me say that I'm more than a little impressed!

Great job making it through the 'con. Acutally, I'm more impressed that your buddy made it through in his pick up than you making it through. You came out very clean.

I've done run the Rubicon a few times and know how tough the trail can be. It's easier later in the year than earlier -- with more people stacking rocks and stuff in the more difficult spots.

Great job!
