Details
This is moderate run with lots of rock gardens, water crossings, a few off-camber situations, and expect axle/body rubbin if you don't have 33-inch tires or better and of course pinstripes. There was some trail erosion last time we went through that made things a little more challenging.

Think my Pig without sliders will do ok on this run? Sprung over with true 33” tires just no side Armor yet.

Yep. I did it on 31-inch tires and no lift when I went through it a couple years ago.

If somehow my shims come in AND I get time to put the motor back together and drive for a day or two I'd like to go. So, no.

This is why everyone needs two TLCs Will. Get the pig running so you have a backup!

I second you getting that Pig running!

If your missing anything critical let me know as local cruiser guy @Hobbs81 has 2 parts rigs in addition to 1 nice driver and 1 desert survivor looking like stock resto. Trying to get him to coffee and cruisers event so he joins club.

Thanks! I have way more parts than time. Keep bringing yours out, it's good for the motivation.

I won't know if I'm making the run until I'm there, but looks good so far.

Don't be a baby! Get your ass out here... If the open top 40 guys can do it, then you can do it with your luxury leather heated seats. ;)

I'm a maybe. Kid woke up with a sore throat today. I'll know tomorrow. Sucks, I spent all day fixing on the cruiser for tomorrow. BTW, Eldorado gets greasy and slippery on the side hills at the south end.

It's Saturday @ 0630 in south Reno.......drizzling rain all night w/ more forecast for today. My shotgun/spotter, an experienced off-roader, just bailed in favor of a better day. So, I'll be a "no show" for the El Dorado Canyon run.

Buddy is going to be my rider if this still happens because he was doing a pre-run check and found his water pump leaking.
We will check here prior as we are still in if anyone else is.
