Phil, As long as you have diff guards, especially the front, and you pay attention to the spotter, a mildly modified D90 won't have any trouble getting around most of what we usually do. Also, there are plenty of by-passes for the nasty bits.

Kevin,
After we towed the Disco home due to a blown headgasket, we removed a 1/2 ton of mud from places you can't imagine. I have to admit having a lift and a guy to clean up after me is a plus!

Phil my truck only sits on 2" lift and i get around fine. Granted my factory sliders are a little beatup but that's due to driver error.

Ok. I've got a 2" lift, heavy-duty drag link, tie rod, trailing arms, front diff guard. Could probably order a rear pinion guard and get it on by then.

Trevor,
Sorry to hear about the problems coming back, we didn't go without a little problem as well. Wasim stopped off on the side of the road to ask a question and all of the sudden his disco started smoldering...luckily we were right there to pick apart the underbrush from the engine compartment, but that was it, could of been alot worse...didn't feel like we got alot of trails completed, alot of sitting and waiting, sure was glad I brought the camper, it would be nice to get out before the weather breaks. I've got a few things I want to add to the truck so I'll call you on that.

Kevin

Phil you should be fine with that set up. Wouldn't worry too much about getting the pinion guard before you come out.

What worried about having three women in the truck with you?

So Paragon for the 12th of November? Doesn't the ROVERSclub have their Fall Trials event on the 13th? I've got 95% of the repairs completed on the Disco, so I'll be ready for whatever...
