    Default Bunce and Ironclads



    I ran all of Bunce with Ironclads this morning. Great weather and not much traffic. My son and I met a guy from the U.K. with a bad ass Rubicon on 40ís followed him down ironclads where he took a couple picks of me. Tacoma did awesome it likes when I feather the throttle and let the tires find traction but then at the very end I ran over a rock that wasnít even big and knocked my alignment out again bad Toyota lol. All in all great day!

    Not sure how hard it is on a Tacoma but on the Jeep TJs doing the alignment is as easy as pie!

    Hey Matt I actually might try adjusting the tie rods myself this time. Caster and camber seems to hold but the toe gets out of wack every couple months. I think the steering rack on these trucks is a weak point.

    Toe is what I adjust on my Jeeps, 2 bolts and a channel lock if needed to turn the adjustment sleeve ó- your truck is new so nothing should be rusted stuck

    we gotta get out together, itís been too long and I havenít yet seen with new lift!

    Phillip did take the elephant up it. There was a spot, maybe two, where there was risk of contacting a tree on the left side (going uphill) where the gulch forced vehicles to tilt left. The pickup had a lot less room there than the Jeeps. I think Matt took his ram up there before too. Maybe he'll comment on the experience.

    I think you'll make it fine. It's much rockier and more challenging than Switzerland.

    It gets a little tight in a few spots but it wonít be a problem. Iím down to do an early morning T33 airplane and/or Park creek off of Bunce if that sounds more fun

    Pen is fun but pretty short

    I think I'm up for some Saturday morning wheeling. I'm not familiar with Park Creek, though. Does it have a different name in the Wells guide, or maybe isn't listed there?

    Maybe next time. Would have run it with you this time, but didn't see this post until I woke up today, too late to make it for 0900. Chris and I ran a bunch of trails anyway, though. Was a good day in the mountains.
