Re: Colorado Fest is on.

I ran it last year locked in the rear and on 33's. The French creek area was a challenge but I made it after several attempts and good spotting. We didn't make it much further than that as a pair of broken JKs were being towed out and we didn't want to get stuck behind them all day.

I have run Chinamans twice without two many issues (ripped out a front brake hardline) and Iron Chest twice without incident (but it can be more challenging when it rains).

Your rig should be fine for pretty much anything in BV, with some things being a hair more challenging than others. Carnage is no longer on the list, so that bring the overall challenge average much much lower.
Iím anxious to see the carnage expansion. Should be pretty rad.
