The Jeep he was following in the video exited the course part way through. Would be nice to know if you could do that in case you decided it was a bit too much.

I wouldn't worry too much about avoiding it before doing the steering rack reinforcement. I have wheeled a lot worse than that without any reinforcement and no issues. I did bend the bracket for the steering rack at one point but that was a winching issue. Huge tree had come down over the trail that we had to crawl/winch over. While winching one of my tires started binding up against one of the limbs pushing the tie rod and in turn putting pressure on the bracket. Was an interesting drive back to FL from TN because whenever the front end would rise on acceleration it would wander all over the place as the alignment would change with the height of the front end :o

One thing I noticed on the Modified course is the part where he runs through the trees, I'm thinking those hills I may high-center it as the Jeeps seem to have an advantage since they have better lifts available to them. Like I said, I'll have to see it in person before I commit. Hope you can make it. I'm definitely going.

I agree, the break over would be the only thing that would hold and H3 from making it through that course. Hopefully we can make it as well and like you would have to see the course then make the decision.

Possibility I might be able to make Sunday but it's going to be tight and probably won't know until the last minute. Really do want to go this year though.

Heck, don't kill yourself trying to make it. But it would be nice to see a familiar face and more than one Hummer. I'll be there on Sunday for sure. I'm open for Saturday instead if a group of Hummers found it easier for that day. Hope to see you there.
