I'll start looking for a spare diff to weld up. Anyone got an extra I can buy? I'm more concerned about my tires. 

 

Kevin is right.  Unless your Wildcats are way bald you should be fine.  I ran a set at like 60% down LowerMainline once and they did fine.

Yeah a 2" is about minimum.  You could do it without but we would probably have to tow you through most obstacles.  I ran a 2", 27s and welded diff for quite a while, smashed my doors, rockers, hatch, rear quarters, bumpers and others.  Nothing major but definitely wont look the same after a trip or two.

How 'bout a pic from today when they're clear and not caked in mud?  Walker isn't a mud pit like the top of Ricky J's.

You should do ok.  There is only one spot on timber tamer that i can think of off the top of my head where you may need a little speed and some throttle.  But that all depends on the weather too.

 

But like Kevin said, Walker isn't mud bogs and deep pits.  Mostly just muddy hard packed trails with tree and rock obstacles.  Have you looked through some of our run pics on here or even my facebook?  They give you a pretty good idea of what to expect.  Most of the big hard stuff has bypasses too.

a skidplate is much cheaper than an engine.Even if it does reduce ground clearance slightly its much less nerve racking driving with a skidplate on because you don't have to be super extra watchful of the front end.

South Enders...

 

Meet at Safeway on Canyon near 512 @ 6:30 and leave @ 7?

 

512 to 167 to 405 to I-5 is easier on some of the cars than taking I-5 all the way.

Getting really excited about this run. Hopefully I get better by Saturday. I've had a 100-104 fever for a couple days. I don't want to go if I'm feeling like spoob
