Did Cleghorn on Saturday with some Psychos, then went to Hungry Valley with a Rover buddy on Monday.
I had a good time on Cleghorn...I don't remember it being that much fun. Took all the fun bypasses, and for the first time was able to do a pretty gnarly section that had always been blocked by a broken vehicle the last few time I was there. You can read about Troy's steering problem/carnage in the video section...hope he can figure out what's going on with his truck.
Gorman, as you know, is pretty tame with a few crazy sections scattered about. There's fun if you look for it. There are some crazy climbs I've never been able to make...maybe a short run someday so you guys can give some of these hills a try?
Anyways...about the truck -- I'm still loving the ride both on and off the road. On a recent trip to Rowher, my wife commented how quiet my truck was. On some steep sections on Cleghorn, I played around with airing down my uphill side, which in one section reduced the side angle from 30+ to under 25 degrees (I don't have any good pics yet, but I'll post a picture of the deflation in progress). I was curious how the bags would handle stuff like that compared to the springs -- they seem to be very similar. I imagine having a blowout on a side angle would be disastrous! Need to work on the roll bars now!
One of my bags was rubbing the upper control arm at full extention. I turned the bag 180 deg. on the mount to see if this will solve the problem. We'll see...I'll keep an eye on it over the next few days. Might have to make a new mount angled slightly the other way or somehow shim my current one to deal with the problem. The bags are really easy to get off and service/change if needed; popped the left rear one out, rotated it and put it back in about 15 minutes.
*here's a couple pictures to compare similar side angles and how the tires/front suspension would naturally would sit in relation to the truck.
The top pic is me on Cleghorn (I have deflated the uphill side and aired up the downhill side)
