That could be fun. The sooner I can schedule it, the better. hopefully it won't be as cold at night.

I'm down for any weekend in Feb. That place is really fun!
I'll try to get my buddy w/a Tacoma to come out with us too, he likes hitting the dunes.

I'd love to go with you guys, but, honestly, I would hold eveyone back with my stock 'Runner sitting on Michelin Cross Terrains. What is the terrain like out there, anyway?

your stocker would do great out there we do a little of everything and we are a VERY laid back group. the terrain has everything rock gardens, hillclimbs, and lots of very fun sand dunes. most of the time in the dunes i was in 2wd. just air down your tires to 10-12 psi and you go like hell. i will bring a full air bottle this time to air everyone back up. we will never make anyone do anything that is beyond their comfort level....

Your "stock" runner is more prepared than you realize!
You have the e-locker right?
Take off your running boards and rear mudflaps for clearance and you are set.
I did coyote canyon w/VERY bald dunlops(stock) and didnt have one problem, running your exact setup.
Some old guy in a jeep was like "If you had any tread on those tires you could climb up a telephone pole!" while he was watching me make it up a hard rocky climb w/out any wheelspin

That trail is harder than the superstition area, which for the most part is a "choose your own adventure" type of area. Truckhaven is the same way, why do you think the local offroad clubs keep returning every year? That's how they appeal to the stock trucks and the fully armored/locked/geared/lifted trucks at the same location.

I thought the dune area was the best part at superstition and I even saw a bone stock expedition ripping around out there with about 5 people in it!
We'll probably be heading out to superstition in the first half of Feb, either 5&6 or 12&13.
You'll be fine.

I thoroughly enjoyed superstition. It was fun, but equipment was not much of a limitation. I am open diffed and I had no problems. There was a sandy spot where I had to take a couple attempts, but I credit that to poor driving and lack of momentum. Dude, we saw a friggin golf cart doing some rock crawlin........enough said.

The 5th I have a show to play now.

I am thinking of making a run with some ttora guys up to big bear on the 12th. Hopefully there will be some snow to play around in. Looks like Gold Mountain and White Mountain trails are the target.
