have yet to find explorer leaves that are in good shape

there are torsion keys on ebay that you can index
but they look very weak

these are the indexable torsion keys for rangers

SuspensionMAXX :: MAXXCam RS - Adjustable Torsion Bar Lever

basically you lift it even higher if you index them properly

in all honesty, you pick the farthest place out of the two. most, if not all of us have to drive at least 4-5 hours, one way. if not farther. why didn't you choose the one that is an hour away from T.O.?

you also saying that only lifted 4wds are the only things that should make it out for this. a meet is a meet. doesn't matter what or who. the dunes trip has had in the past people riding shotgun and rear jumpseats just so everyone could go. i remember reading about it last year and people were making plans to hitch rides.

if you think that i'm being rude or centering you out, sorry. but i feel that a meet should try to accomodate as most as possible. if you chose the closer one, i'd try and make it. but i only get so much vaca a year and i just can't justify spending for two large trips like this. that is why i groupped the dunes at the beginning of my vaca and the rest is still available.


good luck in planning.

Hey man, the reason that I have picked Mattawa is because there is a **** load more trails and I thought that it would be fun to head north out of the citys for the weekend. Also if someone wants to come in a 2wd truck an d jump in with a guy, they are more then welcome. All I as saying was that 2wd trucks wont make it down the trails. Not that if you have a 2wd truck you are not allowed to come at all. If you look at some of the earlier posts. D-Rock, is thinking of bring his quad because he has a 2wd truck. So....... sorry if i hurt someones feelings.
