They blame that on the damaged driveshaft, and said they were merely dragging it up to level ground to work on it.

Ha ha ha ha. Yeah, I don't understand what the dilemma was.

Found a trip report on a Toyota forum with a link to this video. They did the trip in 2012, but only got around to uploading the video in December. They make it look hard, I go right through those spots.

Wonder what they did in the tough spots? They almost look like they are avoiding driving on the bigger rocks. Guess for a full size we're used to it.

Yeah, I wonder the same thing sometimes. A few years ago we ran up behind a group along the lake between Little Thompson and Dusy Creek, they were out spotting eachother in insignificant spots. I found their channel on the CB, and they were saying "once you get through that spot". We were thinking "what spot?". I ended up identifying myself on the CB and asking if they would let us pass, they were nice about it. We stayed at Ershim Lake long enough for them to catch us, and it took them exactly twice as long to get there as us.

Watching the video I was thinking the same thing you said. I'm thinking they should just go, and they're backing up and repositioning. You don't know what's gonna happen if you're afraid to try it.

This on a 4WD club website, it's quite a tribute to the trail and the club. Just found it.

Post Re: Dusy info, and video from other groups
So every where i read they say dusy isn't recommended to be run with a fullsize....not like thats news to fullsize guys but im wondering if you guys have done it before? From what Ive seen its totally do-able but it comes with guaranteed body damage. Sure armor helps but you cant protect it all. I'm not afraid of dents but also don't want my blazer to look like Stevie wonder was the driver and Helen Keller was the spotter. Seems like a great trail to run...

You get tired of avoiding body damage every 20 seconds and eventually you stop caring

You’re late to the party, its been all over the forum lately :goodfinger:

We went this summer, pics, vids, stories, etc:

viewtopic.php?f=13&t=5246

Recent discussion:

viewtopic.php?f=13&t=5318

Short story is... If you manage to get across that trail without body damage in a full size you're incredibly lucky or incredibly skillful or probably both :mrgreen:

I will say if you have good bumpers, good sliders and drive reallll careful you can minimize it quite a bit.

This has been through 6 times, and some shorter trips too. This pic was taken right after a tree fell across the hood.
