Went on a John Bull run organized by LonelyDriver and led by JDemello.

It was sick. The trail was fairly difficult, and without spotters most likely impossible for me. I plan on returning though!


Thanks a lot to Tankota and Demello, and Wyatt for the awesome spotting.

First, some of my pics. I did not take a lot surprisingly. this trail required attention!



Eagle Scout stuck.. We all got stuck here. It was the supposed "easy line", but was actually the hard one :D




Ripped my corner piece off where we all got stuck




Pointman 0, tree 1

Nice Pics Dom! Yeah we both got stuck and we both messed up our rear bumper wings. It was a fun time and met a lot of great people.

I want to try those trails I just need to get armor plated underneath first. Gold mountain up there put a few huge dents under there so john bull would probly kill it.

All i have is a front skid and sliders. That is all you need if you have someone that knows how to spot.

Hey, cool, you can embed Vimeo?! That video of Jason is hilarious. So Dom, you think the trail is fine with just front skids? I thought that might be the case, but never asked.

Yup, i used my front skid and crossmember a lot!

I even got some nice scratches/chunks on my front LCA's rest of the frame.

Pointman used his full bud's a lot, but he was super super low to the ground.

Tony most trails are okay with out skids if you have lifted the vehicle, but there is always the chance that it isn't. I would not run that trail without all skids, and sliders. Mine took quite a few hits, but I do not think I did any damage to skids, I was stuck in a very difficult area there, but no dents or scratches that I can see. I only had one dent from the hammers, but my sliders were bent nearly up into the doors from the slams. If it is a black diamond trail you need all sliders.
