    well I am only asking $2600 for this one - buy it and only use it for trails! your sporttrac is way to pretty for trails like rubicon, barret. You could probably do Strawberry.

    I will post more of the videos that my wife took. They show the trail adn how hard it is pretty good.

    I want to get back up there and do the trail. I think it has been 5 years sense I was up there. I have been all the way through twice to the little sluice once, then to the granite slabs and back out when mine friend blew his clutch up.

    I would like to go to barret some time. Heard about it but have never been.

    i posted pics in my build thread on my barret trip last year. It is under snow and may not open at all this year due to the snow. They are trying to open wrights lake campground as the snow is finally melted to the campground in most spots.
    the problem is all the trees that have fallen

    smog legal 4.0 motor swap with BAR ref sticker on door. current tags on it right now. Gets 14-18mpg. Tags are only like $120 a year and insurance is $18 a month as I drive it less than 5,000 miles a year.

    After this trip My wife decided she likes doing the off road thing and wants to bring the kids along. So I have permission after this trip to upgrade to a 4 seater. :D
