Trail ride enough a stock 2500 burb on 275s can make it without body damage?? lol doubtful I'm guessing! I've watched videos of whole trail but can't tell if any detours and havnt seen any vids of full sizes on the trail lol

Doubtful. That wheelbase is too long that your rear quarter panels would be smashed. A stock Jeep can make it through there though with rock sliders.

Full size rigs have a 98% chance of body damage through one section. A burb is just going to be too large to make it through. Plenty of service roads though.

How’s everyone go up from the triad? Looking on the GPS from the High Point area, it says the quickest route is up 220N but I know there is a lot of construction and going their town. It gives the option to run 52/77/81N and is only 20 minutes longer. Seems like that may be easier and just straight highway with a load to go that way.

220N is great if you're in a 911 carrera 4

Towing a jeep it's too damn many off-camber curves, hills and stoplights

Yeah my truck tows great, but it does a lot better above 60 so the big highway will be better off.

did the dragon 3-5 times a year for a decade (long before the shitheads took it over) on sportbikes

Last ride was with the boy in the wifes Msport

NOT a place I'd ever wanna tow thru... or Darryl Cannon (killboy.com) would embarrass my ass online for crossing the yellow line in the corners

That, I'd actually like. I've cut an inch out of the lift, so I'd be interested to see how she hangs the curves now

I’ve kept mine low, but I need some wheel spacers to get a some width and stability in the rear now.

I wouldn’t want to run by jolopy down the dragon, but I’ll co pilot in a wrangler with the top off in nice weather!

Come fall when the weather isn't like a large oven, I'd be down to run the dragon. Spool will definitely bring the suck though.

Good to know. We've towed our goosenecks that way a bunch of times. I didn't know it was a bad idea.
