@JohnVee @apinti I won't be able to get the sliders in on time for the trail ride... I've already scarred the front and rear bumper to welcome her to a long harsh life. I wish I knew well in advance I'd be able to make this trip, because I would've ordered a set to have them in on time.

Thinking of at least getting KO2s so I have better traction and can air down. Lower the risk of sliding off a rock and smacking something I could've avoided with grip. Learned that at flagpole when the tires slid off the rock shelf and smacked my rear LCA

@afgman786 Go on an 'easy' trail like Wolf Den or Falls Dam. You can do them without armor in a stock truck. Get the feel for the URE terrain and decide if you wanna risk it on the other trails. There'll be plenty of open seats if you decide you wanna copilot after that. My best advice is to ride shotgun with somebody going out Thursday or Friday, especially a local. They'll know what you can do with a stock truck depending on your level of damage acceptance. Look for me, I'll take you.

Appreciate it man! Definitely would ride with whoever has open seats for the relic run portion and was thinking the same thing with starting on easy trails and scoping out how tough of a terrain I can go on. I'm one that enjoys a challenge, especially if I can accept a challenge and be able to back out if it's worse than I expected.
I bought the 200 with full plans of banging her up a bit as long as nothing important breaks.

I started off as a joke/iffy about going. But I'm definitely in now! Already took off and put aside money for tires

Personally, I might look to put the tire money into sliders. Though, you probably missed the window for anything other than sliders from a company that has them ready on the shelf. It takes 6-8 weeks to get powder coated sliders built and shipped.

@Stumpalama that's what I'm thinking that I missed the window for sliders. I'll reach out tomorrow and see if there's any chance having them a few days before leaving.. if not I won't be as reckless with the 200

looking at the vehicle inspection checklist, I see I need to get a fire extinguisher and first aid kit right? I'm assuming I will need these if I want to take part in the 1100 - 1700 Trail ride they have posted on the agenda for the weekend.

Yes. You will need them. Costco sells fire extinguishers and the price is OK.
