Just take them off when you get there, put 'em back on when you leave.

Greg5OH Oh yes im sure its an 06. Well its an 06 chassis but a 91 cab. Functionally for turning/stopping inrefer to it as an 06.

Good to know about the beer.

Good to know avout the bigger rigs, my main concern was the switchbacks on white rim...and also the really tight section through elephant.. Somethhing..?
Those bigger rigs, 182" wheelbase and bigger? Id have a spotter just in case too

hitman_1b You sure that's an 06 and not a 96? Just saying.....

I have no real input to add but love to see some pics of that boat sailing down some trails!

The switchbacks on White Rim may lead to a full diaper in that outfit, but it's physically doable...
