Here are the Chairman's notes. On the Rubicon Trail (and Rubithon), minimum tire size is 33", anything less will not be fun for the driver or those behind. All runs from any given departure point take essentially the same route, but there are some 'line' options depending on your skill or frustration level, or desire to prove a point. Leaving from Loon Lake is a longer trip, but includes the complete Rubicon experience and absolutely worth the trip for first-timers. Most runs are at a pace suitable for novices. Trail Leads and committee members are there to see everyone gets through safely. Everyone has had a 'first time' on the trail and it's expected. If you want to reach out to a Trail Lead to discuss their particular run just send me a PM or email, or call me.I had a look at the Registrations website and was wondering if there are any details on the actual runs in regards to ratings or vehicle specs etc.
I am looking at the 2 day options with my kid but apart from start location there isn't much between them and I am wondering what is most suitable for an old 46 Series that just likes to poke along
Just go ahead and join us, you planned to be on the trail anyway .My dad and I have been planning to run the Rubicon trail on August 16/17th for some time now. I see that this event has been moved close to that date. Are we likely to run into excessive traffic? It looks like all the runs are scheduled for the 14/15th, but it says the event is August 14-18. We would consider joining in, if there is a 16-17th run, but hadn't planned on it.
Everyone tries to get to the Springs by Friday for the evening festivities. You are welcome to do your own Renegade Run and get to the Springs by Friday evening. If you are leaving Loon Lake early Friday morning you should expect to find folks on the trail (or get caught up by some of them) and make it to the Springs by Friday evening in time for the festivities to begin. If you are in a position to leave Sunday morning I highly recommend it in order enjoy the full Saturday experience. Otherwise, unless you are an experienced wheeler I wouldn't suggest going out Cadillac Hill in the dark.I’d like to, but I don’t see anything for August 16-17. Am I missing something?
Even HWY50 has to shut down periodically due to snowslides over the pass...It was in the SF paper today or yesterday that the high camps at Yosemite will not be opening this year - at all. And, there is great video on Facebook off the crew trying to clear Tioga pass (east road into Yosemite). Quite a year.
Automatic or manual? If it is an automatic transmission, I would do dif gears and locker. I bet you’ll get other opinions though.Question for you guys . i will have time to do 1 or the other . What do you think would be more helpful ?
1) Atlas transfer case
2) Gears and Front locker .
The Fj gets around fine now with the current gears and i do have a rear locker and Atrac . I just would like to get some of the power back and Lock the front at the same time . What do you guys think ?
