    I forgot the number but that top trail I have been on once years ago and it scared the shit out of me. Were any of you able to do it without any help from people on the ground? So much off camber stuff. That is the trail you see all the YT videos of RZR's rolling over on. Looks like you guys covered a LOT of ground. That is the same cabin we stayed in last year Mark.

    Edit - the 2014 Rocks and Ruts YT video shows a T2 rolling onto its side on that same trail. If you go there you will see there are a lot of places if you roll you are liable to go down the side of the mountain if you don't have any check guys on the ground.

    Good to see some atv's mixed in for this ride. All of them great guys no less and extremely skilled riders. I have wanted to ride that ridge since 1st seeing video of it. There will be plenty of video from this trip since Jesse was shooting vid as well as some others. If any gets posted on RnR and not here I'll add it to this thread.

    @Magellan you are probably talking about the highlight video from the RnR fall video contest we ran a few months back. What's funny is i have seen videos from JodyT of that ridge and guys in RZR XP900 and XP1K's aren't getting help on the ground on most of it. Just goes to show how suspension travel matters so much on trails like this.



    Actually that clip was from JodyT's entry video and it was a RZR not a Teryx. You can see it at the 1 minute mark with footage from in car as well...

    We had to walk the quads across one off camber spot, otherwise they had an easier time than the Teryx's. We had straps on the side of the roll cages and on the back bumpers just in case on of the Teryx's started to tip but they never did, they had to be close though,lol.

    My T2 made it all the way across without any pushing or pulling from the spotters to speak of but Mike's T4 with the heavier custom cage and stuff needed a little gentle coaxing in a couple spots.

    In my opinion that trail is just about at the limit of the Teryx's suspension capabilities, a long travel kit would help a little but would also make it wider which could hurt when the ridge gets skinny, and believe me it gets skinny!!!

    You know it's getting nasty when you have a crew walking around you. Nice video!

    Are you guys running your front anti sway bar on the Teryx's?

    Wow, I would definitely have to invest in some skids before riding that trail. I would love to ride it, but definitely need some protection. Nice videos! Thanks for sharing. Had me puckered the whole time.

    They refer to that as a trail?????? You hillbillies are crazier than we are!!!! I wanted to cry for mama just watching that. I cringed every time they slammed down on a rock.
