I just upgraded to 33s and I have full skid plating on my Frontier,
but I got a 126" wheelbase and no sliders. I signed up for blue trails, but for those who know this area, what's your reccommendation?

I'd be worried about blue/black trails with your wheel base and no sliders. I could see the rockers getting abused. I've never wheeled these trails though.

I would say to run the greens at Summit to be safe and run Mabell trail.
there are some tight spots on blue Summit trails and a large rock garden that would need sliders.
Mabell has a more open feel and more options to get you through.
but is no cake walk it is rated blue/black and red depending on the line you take.

Ok, I signed my truck up for the greens.
Btw, I'm registered twice for this event, so please delete the first one with Frontier4x rated for Blues.

I agree that it's probably not worth the rocker damage with my wheel base I already got some of that at GG in April lol

Looks like I'll be running solo next Sat. So will have have an empty seat for anyone wanting to ride along. Plus the back seat, if you like cramped places. The only condition is that you keep praising my wheeling skills no matter what happens... and not say a word if we get lost on the trail.
