Great pic's! :thumbsup:

The damage sucks. I did something similar a few years back. Now I wish I would have put a flat bed on instead of having the bed repair.

nice man, good wheelin!

i think i know exactly where you got that damage... theres a narrow and steady climb that leans to the driver's side. i lean into the wall a little bit every time. how was the cave in at the end? it was pretty stacked up last time i was out.

did you get a look at gatekeeper? its one canyon east of where you guys were.
looks like this;

theres a bypass, but its still a difficult trail after the beginning.

we took that trail up after gatekeeper, I hit my side on the way down the trail. i actually made it all the way up without any body damage. haha we built up some rocks so i could roll down easy in one of the narrrows parts on the trail back down. and the rocks slipped out just as i got my driver side doors past.... at least they held till then haha. and yeah the first pic is of my buddys crawler he took it through gatekeeper, of course i took the bypass and hiked down to watch haha. i was very surprised i made it through that canyon though haha. this was my first "real" wheeling you could say. was extremely fun.


oh and on the way down there is this downhill where your freaking passenger side wheels are hanging off the side a bit and its like a 6 foot drop off.and your driver side is hugging a vertical wall. im sure you know what im talking about lol that was a doosy.. for me at least im terrified of rolling ever lol.

Definitely need to get yourself some armor.

this i know haha.

yeah i think im gonna just pull out the big dent and leave the rest give my truck character. plus in about 2 weeks my prg suspension lift will be in my wheels and tires are allready in just need to drive to az for them and my sliders should be in from shrock.

Damn, that's some good contact. Did you go into a 3 wheel stance or drag it along the rock wall?
was on a down hill coming off a big *** rock but my truck had to lean driver because of the boulder next to my passenger side. and truck just slipped off the huge *** pile of rocks. pretty much just dropped my truck onto a boulder. well the *** end at least.

yea, thats the "cave in" i was talking about. it happened when we got like two weeks of rain about six months ago or something.

i'm a little long, so to go up it and make the turn onto the trail, i have to get a tire up on the canyon wall... pretty nuts. its at least a two roll tumbler if you make a mistake! haha

i know i didnt realize how bad the trail was gonna be and it was the worse at the end where ther is no bypass.
sliders, skids, and even bumpers would not help you from getting that body damage.
You need this.:)

Calico is always fun man. Before I saw that roastbeef posted I was gonna say, we'll have to call you roastbeef too. Cause he bangs it up at calico also. At gatekeeper though, where the men are separated from the boys, hahaha. But you did work flexing that truck of yours. Nice job!

Those colts will get less rock rash since the face is not flat like the stock rims. Would you be using spacers with the 35's? 35's would rub the frame in the front and the wheel well in the back on stock rims.

well i have a 2 inch body lift and 3 inch prg lift is going on this weekend. do you think that would give me enough clearance for 35s with the stock wheels? ahhhh nvi get what your saying sorry. yeh i didnt know they would rub i might just stick with the colts and the 33s then i was just gonna have a rag set of wheels and tires for when i would be doing **** i know id take damage to the wheels doing.
