i was talking about the racing part.
i really don't consider the guys w/ just a lift, bed mounted spare tire, and some glass to be "prerunners", though i may even reference them as so, because "prerunner" has become the title, pretty much, of anyone fitting that description.
people jacking around in the desert, w/o trucks built for it, jumping big w/o cages, w/ stock suspension, etc... i have no respect for. they endanger themselves and others.
now, if someone wants to go ride around on trails, drive around in the desert, etc, in a stock or basically stock(mildly lifted) truck, by all means, just don't go trying to be ivan stewart.
it's def. dangerous, when it's all those random people in the dunes. throw alcohol in the mix, and i imagine that helps boost those accident numbers.
