Yeah they do have k5's, and I walked everything they had a hard time on due to my wheelbase :D

I could be like all you low rider guys or lifted street truck guys and do the exact same as everyone else but I choose to be different :crazy: . Plus my truck goes up everything I point it at and doesn't flip over backwards like k5's and jeeps...

Ill watch the video tomorrow...I guess depending on the type of rocks, that longer wheelbase could be nice. I guess its just like anything else, theres gonna be some good things about it and some bad...can't always have the best of both worlds.

Esteban broke a spring center pin which slid the axle back, we had it fixed in about 30 minutes or so...

The rim got bent on a rock that I didn't see... I was going probably 25 mph down the dirt road and it was about 18" tall and it just clipped the bead of the rim and bent it back, stupid on my part, I was talking to my passenger....

The graves I have heard two stories on. 1) They died of natural causes some place else but loved the trail and wanted to be buried there. 2) They all died on a big roll off of Cadilac hill and where the graves are is at the base of caddy hill so that seems to fit but I dunno.

Cadillac hill is crazy steep and off camber with a huge drop on your right the whole way up, I had 200% pucker factor going on as I made my way up it and down it.

Thats a tight right turn while going up caddy hill. I'm tipped about 40* torwards the cliff on the left of the picture, only thing that was holding me up is the big rock. Going up wasn't bad but going down scared the wee out of me at that spot!!!
