a guy in my club has done most if not all of tellico in his 80...

I would loosely call it an 80 now though....

2 hours S of Tellico here...I will do it once I can build my darn truck up.

IMO, guardrail in an 80 would not be bad at all....helicopter would most likely adjust some sheetmetal tho...I would think lower 2 to be easier in an 80 than heli tho.

Harder might be getting DOWN from heli tho...the backside is nasty, and 11 (I think it's 11) is interesting too....

i was looking at some old pictures last night from when i was at Western Carolina University. One of my good buds had a fj40 and he took me to tellico. I was hooked after that trip. He had just put a 350 in his rig and took me up hellicopter pad. If it's muddy up there (which is always) you can almost forget it! I don't think i'm ballsy enough to take my 80 up there. :cheers:

I actually haven't taken my 80 on any of the tellico trails, but hopefully soon that'll change.

I spotted for friend in an 80 up to guardrail...no problems getting there but we didn't go all the way.

schoolbus, lower 2, heli, slickrock, and now upper 2 are the tricky rides at Tellico these days.

Just do an image search on google for "tellico" and you will see just about everything there.

I can't wait to get a trail ready rig up there again.

Sorry kidpen. I am kinda feeling the pinch right now myself. I was totall planning on going, but over the past few weeks i am not sure if i'll be employed much longer. So pennies are getting tight. If something works out for me i'll see if there are any spots open for my junk.

I would love to see some pics of 80s working the pad.
