Alleghany Trail, CA

What a day! Some scary parts and lot of good parts. Pushed this thing to the maxed. Still need tires and skid plates. I apologize, my wife is a shitty camera woman lol! The G80 locker was extremely helpful on this trip. I would have had a lot worst of time without it.

Where is that road located?

Dude, that side-ways slide must have raised you heart rate a bit....

Looks like a great trip, with a high pucker factor...

Couldn't play the vid on this site or on You tube site???

Great videos, but think I will save that road for the Wrangler. My wife would have needed to be airlifted out if she was there, to the closest cardiac unit.

On another note, dog seemed to be enjoying the ride.

Some solid wheeling! Looks like you 100% need to take your air dam off. You also need rock sliders. You came inches away from giving them a good bang. Good to see some guys challenging their trucks!

The air dam was nearly ripped off when my license plate got ripped off. When we stopped for lunch I ripped it all the way haha. I will be buying a tube bender within the next couple months and fashioning some sliders to the truck. Can't wait.

On this page, can see all photos but vids won't play.
Opened vids on YouTube, won't play, other vids play as normal. Tried some of your other vids, no luck.
Your photbucket link only shows one photo and won't bring up any others.

If you finally solve the sliders puzzle let me know. I might be interested in paying you for a set. I'm in Roseville. There is a whole thread of people looking for some.

Are you planning on building bolt on or weld on sliders?

What the heck??? I'm all for using your 4x4 the way you want to but geez that was a little rough in my opinion. Definitely freaking awesome though. You're a lucky man I'd be dead instantly by my wife if I did that haha.

Honestly haven't thought about that too much but i'm thinking bolt on so they can be easily removed for whatever reason. Damaged or if they needed new paint.

Rough lol? Truck handled everything I threw at it no problem. Most people don't realize the potential of 4x4s in general. It's amazing what this truck is capable of without abusing it. I do have a good wife that's for sure!

I meant rough as in scrapping your nose pretty good at the beginning and almost going off a cliff lol. Obviously the 4x4 system was definitely capable of handling that trail. Small lift and better tires and it would of been a cake walk.
I shouldn't be giving lectures anyway the exhaust pipe on my diesel is now oval shaped and I have plenty of really good scratches from bushes in tight trails. Lol

Bolt on would be my preference. In the other thread, there is concern about welding them to the frame actually weakening the frame in the heat affected zones. There are at least 2 guys in NorCal and a few others in California in general who would be interested...

You might want to check out this thread to see what the discussion has been on sliders.... BAMF Sliders

Not an expert, not even knowledgeable at all with regard to sliders, but I would never weld sliders on, bolt on for easy repair & replace. Actually, for offroad adventures, I would want everything bolt on for easy replacement.
