The requirements for Cow Creek got changed due to some washouts on the trail.

Just got home from a week of wild wheeling at March Madness in Kingman, AZ! It was an incredible event - we ran 7 trails in 6 days, that ranged from wild to slightly less so. Eight trails were scheduled, with 2 trails on 2 of the days, but mechanical issues that morphed into a vehicle recovery mission prohibited us from running the 2nd trail on Wednesday. I'll post some pictures once I recuperate a bit.

I was really proud to see Offroad Passport so well represented at the event! ChrisD, Maddogjeeper, stockjeep, Elkpakr, Kermit, and George and I were there in Clifford. And I'm pretty excited about the feature article I'm going to do for JPFreek!

Made it home OK after an awesome time running great trails. I was just a spectator to the usual wrecks on Hwy 93. We have a bumper sticker in NW Montana that should be popular here: "Pray for me. I drive Hwy 93."
Thanks everyone for all the great help. Peace & Grace

Glad you made it home safe, hope you get the death wobble problem solved.

Your Currie steering is a great set up. Don't know way your shop is recommending crossover setup because steering and death wobble are two different issues. Keep your Currie setup and sell it.

Sounds like someone really has the wheeling bug now! It was a pleasure to meet you and everyone else that came to our little playground.

A high mount tie rod is a good thing.
