Sorry for bringing back this thread from the dead, but considering hitting this trail and wondering if it is full size truck friendly? What would be the minimum requirements for a FS rig on it? Thanks in advance for any assistance

I'm not sure on the current condition but Arvetek has had his Tahoe through 90% of it without much issue. What kind of full-size?

That's what I needed to know. Thanks for the info. Are there"outs" along the trail or is it necessary to run it all the way through?

The longest section without an out may be ~15 miles.

I'm interested as well. Just put new 33" bfg ko2 s on and a snorkel on, all I need to do is extend the breathers...  I have had the 80 series a month now and I have yet to take it offroad. :-[  ???

Looking to make this trip in 2 weeks with my group, Bayou City Land Cruisers based out of Houston, Texas. How is the fuel situation entering on the east end from Russellville?  Our tanks get about 200-230 miles/tank but realize that number gets reduced drastically once you enter the trail.  We plan on bring a military gas can for each vehicle and will plan to get gas every gas station we see.

I've travelled a lot of those roads in my Jeep TJ with a 15 gallon tank, and never worried about fuel.  There was always a fuel station along the route not too far away.  I did carry a spare 5 gallon tank but never used it.  Having said that, it's always a good idea to pack extra fuel just in case.
