4 + We can hardly improve on the original description written a few years ago by Jack Bickers: "with driving by World Class Yahoo Jeepers not much concerned with vehicle durability or personal safety." It is common to have as many as 10 percent of the vehicles experience major mechanical failures (gears, axles, driveshafts) on these trails.

Required equipment for this trail: tow hooks front and rear, tow strap with loops, locking differential in at least one axle. 33" tire minimum, fire extinguisher and first aid kit. Winch, roll cage, two locking differentials and 35" tires or larger recommended.


5 Extreme trail recommended for purpose built rock buggies only. Body damage and rollovers are expected. Caution as personal injury could occur. Trail leader has the right to refuse participation to anyone.

Required equipment for this trail: Tow hooks front and rear, tow strap with loops, locking differential in both axles, winch, minimum 35" tires, full roll cage, fire extinguisher and first aid kit. Tech inspection will be required for this trail rating. Inexperienced drivers no matter the equipment will be asked to join another trail.
