Not mine. Pulled from the World Wide Web:


Another:


It appears that you need 2+ inches of lift and good tires to navigate the trails. The white D2 @5:40 has a good setup. Hits the tree lol.

There was a white D1 no lift with chains that did fantastic. Owner was super friendly as well

Would a simple air locker have prevented some of these folks from getting stuck or was is just super slick and winching is inevitable.

Depends on the situation. A locker was a handicap in quite a few sections of trail with the trail slick as heck and off camber. When the locker engaged it just slide the truck right off into the trees. This made the winch the only ootopt for going forward. One of the best I saw for getting around was a 90 with duratrac tires and only cdl.

The Range Rover Sport is on 32.5" and air suspension.

The LR3 in the picture is on 32" and air suspension.

I am on 32.5" and coil conversion

Similar trucks so it's easy to confuse them

Finally had a chance to watch the videos, good stuff. And although it looks like fun and temps didn't look to horrible...l'd still be hard pressed to play in the snow anymore.

The weather aside from the bit of rain on Friday was phenomenal. You should make the trek at least once if your a Rover owner. Waterville is a must experience.
