Equipment for the Trail:
You must have all of the following to go on any trail run with us. Do not go on a trail run with us if you do not have ALL of the mandatory equipment.
1. A working CB. More CB info here.
CBs help keep communication in the group. It helps people warn others of hazards in the trail, informs of the hard lines, bypasses, ways to negotiate an obstacle, aids in avoiding bottle necks, encourages rig & modification talk, creates a safe way to pass on a two lane highway, warnings for speed limit changes, and many, many more helpful things. It also prevents making the trail leader get out of the rig every time there is something important to relay (often in the snow) and tromp through to you because you don't have a radio. They are under $200 for everything, simple to install, and last a long time. It's a mod that's well worth the money.

2. Front and rear recovery points.
Without adequate points it makes a recovery take more time and often increases wear and tear on the recovery gear as well as increases the chances of breaking something or creating injury. We strongly recommend against factory hooks since they commonly only take about 5,000lbs before breaking. This can result in a flying 1 lb steel slug capable of ripping through steel, glass, and virtually anything in it's path.

3. Vehicle jack and spare tire.
It's an inevitability. Flats happen anywhere. This is a trail we'd done many times before. No one else got a flat tire and yet one of us got three flat tires...check out the vid

4. Water and warm clothing in case you have to do an overnighter or longer.

While On The Trail:
5. No alcohol or medical marijuana (including your passengers) while on the trail. At the camp after wheeling, we get it, sometimes it's nice to enjoy a cold one after a good day on the trail.

That's it. We have simple rules and we like to keep them that way. Thanks!

Rules updated, down to 5 rules.

Removed the rule that said If it's going out, get it fixed before going wheeling. While this is still something that holds, it seemed like a nebulous rule since "going out" can mean virtually anything and people seem to go out wheeling on their own comfort level anyway.

I think it's a good idea to revisit the rules from time to time. There are a lot of rules we could add in there but many of them don't follow the rule of thumb, it necessary and is it effective? If you have something you think we should add in please post up your suggestions.

If you drive a 4runner, do NOT refer to it as your "truck". It is an SUV, not a truck. I don't care if it is body on frame, it is NOT a truck. Only refer to such vehicle as a 4runner. Unless you drive a pathfinder or Jeep. In which case you call them your pathfinder or Jeep. Those driving Tacoma's or other vehicles with a bed are the ONLY members that should be referring to their rigs as trucks.

Whatcha think? Can we add this please?

Did that spawn out of me referring to our rigs as trucks? I'm probably guilty as charged. No longer will I call a 4Runner, Pathfinder, Xterra, Jeep, or any of the like a "truck"
