    Acer4lo and Rascole, what dates would work for you?
    I am open to any dates from June to August to be honest. Preferably I am thinking sometime in July. 06H3 did you ever do a run through with just the rancho? If so was it a enough to get you by?

    Serge, you can run the trail any way you want. Loon to Tahoe, Tahoe to loon, loon back out loon or even Tahoe and back out to Tahoe!

    Serge, can you run the trail in a day? Yes, if you hustle. With multiple H3s that are closer to stock it will take some more time, also if they are driving from a far distance letting them enjoy the mtns, lakes and scenery is a benefit too.

    Back on topic: Acer4LO, I have not done the rubicon with ifs but after doing it 3 times I can tell you ifs rigs can get it done. Not to mention Bebe was doing the rubicon with sewie years ago with a torsion bar crank.

    Let me check the rubicon calendar for when the big events are....

    I love to run the Rubicon with y’all. What better group than a group of similar vehicles. However my concern is my first born is due late July or early August. Not sure if the Mrs will be okay with me disappearing on her like that after she gives birth. Lol

    Well I am not an expert on Rubicon, but I and John started ~10:30 from ranger cabin and when I broke down .5 mil till camp site it was 3pm. It took us ~3 hours to finish it next day. Considering we thought we got lost on granite slab and backtracked (lost ~1 hr) and had lunch. That is 2 hr there. So yea that is about 6hr travel time. This is why I donít see 3 days there.
    Jeep jamboree parties for a day at the camp. Even if group is slow and with all Kodak moments i donít think it takes that long.

    Personally I would want to take my time, relax and enjoy the time in the mountains. If I am so rush that I need to speed through it I would just schedule the trip for another time.

    Rubicon summer 2018?

    Doing 7mil in 8 hours (1 mph) is not speeding.
    Most of people have to travel pretty far for this so it may be wiser to do rubicon in 2 days and run another trail after, if no one will break.

    Last time we ran GM, JB and Holcomb trail and we started late ~10:30 and were off ~6:30 it was a nice day at moderate pace.

    I'm guessing that a base H3 with 33s and torsion leveled may not be quite up to the challenge, correct?

    Now that I have the Alpha I might look into joining y'all. I might not have 35's on it still though, I am seriously considering swapping my 33's over to it since I mostly do commuting, but those are Duratracks. I have a front and rear locker plus the 4:1 transfer case. Are 35's really going to be necessary with that setup?
