I am not familiar with either of these trails, could you give me a little more info? I will see if I can find anything on them online. Is it suitable for a long wheelbase?

Dang! This is the one weekend I already have something planned for the next month. I will be south of the boarder for the Baja 1000 that weekend. I hope you have a great run.

Sidewinder is located about an hour east of San Diego on th esouth sid eof I-8. Both of these trails are identified as moderate to difficult trails. Rule of them on either of them is 33" tires, armor underneath, and at least a rear locker. With the right line stock rigs can run them. There are a few spots on Sidewinder that would tear up them rocker panels or fenders on a full sized truck unless it's very well set up.

I'm thinking of doing another run more suited for a long wheel base soon near Otay Mtn. It runs from Maron Valley Truck Trail over to the 94.

Well, I am an 06 PowerWagon, so locked front and rear, on 305/70/17 No rock rails yet. I will have to look into the trail a little more and see what it looks like. I dont mind scratching it up and denting bumpers, but it is my daily driver so I have to make sure it still drives

I love wheelin' out there but I'll be out at the river that weekend. I don't think my TJ is ready for those trails right now anyway.

Your truck should be fine out there. I've guided stock full-sized trucks through there before.

so can I go with the theory that the Hummer is on its roof, and the dodge is on its wheels therefore my dodge will stay on its wheels. It may not be right, but it is the logic I will use with my wife
