Vegas Wheeling (Tie Rod Canyon) and The Kraken!

PaintSnow was in town so we decided to do a run. My rig is still down for a rebuild + upgrades so I hitched a ride with Nizmo Mclovin (thanks Dan!)

The mere minorly modified rigs:



release the kraken:







On the trail:





















BEST BUMPER STICKER EVER!:



The boulder in this picture looks small but it is the size of a old school VW bug:









The following pic doesn't give a good representation of how close to tipping we were. Basically the drivers rear was pretty deep in a washed out section and the front tire are up on a small ledge. The front passenger tire is about an inch of the ground (although you can't tell in the picture):





This gives a better idea of how sideway we were:



Cr3ak's bad day....while pulling Nismo out of his pucker spot we heard a "SNAP":




Then while trying to unlock his Hi-Lift the key broke:



It was a great group and an awesome time!......I just wish
I had my rig. Everyone made it home safe and there is no doubt that Paintsnow's SAS set up is CRAZY capable!

Very nice. Who does the black 2nd Gen belong to? Really nice tube work and lots of expensive looking bits on that truck.

Belongs to PaintSnow on ThenewX forum. It is crazy! As an example here is a jeep with rear locker and 35in tires attempting a climb:

Here is the X easily walking up the SAME climb:
