Badland Bumpers for an 80 series

I found these bumpers for a 80 series.

I like the design, they are hard to find on the web so I thought I could just collect them here.

2020 Dusy Ershim Trail in 2 Days

I had on my bucket list one of the toughest trails California has to offer called the Dusy Ershim trail situated up high in the Sierra Nevada Forest near Courtright Reservoir. The trail is 31 miles & generally can be completed in a fast pace 3 day journey. 4 other friends with 80 series rigs like mine did it in 2 days because of the Big Creek fire started the 2nd day so we had to bug out 21 miles in one day. Crazy.
Here is the ih8mud thread my friend started:


Got lazy & tried to push a few tress over. The tress won.




The undercarriage took most of the carnage.
the muffler took a big hit toward the drivelive.

The rear lower control arm hangers took a lot of big hits.


Front arm drop hangers took abuse also.




Rear sway self clearanced itself.

Tierod hit a rock & is bent very slightly.
I used every bit of uptravel shown by yellow zip tie.
Rubbed front portion of fenders.
Barley touched exhaust.

Canada Family Trip 2019


I've been traveling North from Central California up Abbotsford BC.
My family & I are doing the travel trailer thing. As you might of read the last few posts making upgrades for the trek.
The 488 axle gears along with the SUMO 10% high gear set have been well worth the money spent. Greatest thing about the 10% gears is they do not effect the speedometer. Dont ask my why... ill leave that to the smart people to tell me... something to do with where the speedo picks up.
We have made stops at:
Woodland, CA

Then will be headed up to:
Blaine, WA
Abbotsford BC
Then make a quick dash home hitting Crescent City, CA & Redding on the way dow to make it back in time for Turf-N-Surf 2019 at Pismo Oceano the 1st weekend of Nov.

Spanish Lake Trail father daughter trip

I was finally able to get out & do some wheelin tent camping this last weekend with my oldest daughter.
It's kind of our annual hang out together thing.
We spent some time hanging with the 4x4Him.com Christian Wheeler group at there Rock Hopper Roundup weekend.
We went Rouge from their selection of trails to get the Spanish Lake Trail off my Bucket list.
It was a Fast & Furious 9 hour round trip back to Bald Mountain Base Camp.
I want to go back & hike up to Rodgers Ridge to see the Kings Canyon Nation Forest from the North side down into the Kings River Canyon next time we have a chance to go back.
Fun Fact: from the trail head of 6,500' up to campground 8,900' elevation that's a 2,700 foot climb.
