I felt like doing my own thing today and just cruised around dodging the mud. It's still way too muddy out there for me.
Aw man, could of done what I did, 5 minutes down the road is the self service car wash.

Nice pictures there. I was at the park on saturday the 2nd. I got to the park about noon and left about 3pm after this mishap. I wish I had met you guys. Here is my thread about my trip and a few pics...

Dang man, I had KO2s too going through that spot and made it through. There must be a really sharp rock there because I remember another vehicle having a flat in that area too, but that was in the dry.

Glad you made it through ok.

I saw this rock and took a wrong angle and tried to go up a small incline, but because it was so muddy and slippery, all I did was slide back into the track and placed my tire right infront of the rock for it to basically slice through it. I could have tried and gone over the rock, but I thought I could go by it. Well, the rock was just sitting there like a knife waiting for me. And when I got there and felt my wheels spinning, I stepped on it giving enough momentum that made it easy for the rock to slice through my tire wall.

There goes my KO2. Now I need to buy a new one.

Dang, and I was told the 3ply sidwalls were so tough... Might have to rethink my summer tire choice. Glad I haven't bought them yet. Might have to go for something even beefier.

This usually only happens when people don't air down or are running street tires with weak sidewalls.
I was there with you Skawty when the guy in the new Tacoma was on that same trail and did the same thing. He wasn't aired down at all.
I've gone down that same path 10 times at least and never had any problems, but when I do it I'm aired down to 20 psi.

Your photos are blocked here at work, I'll have to look when I get home.
I did read your other post and that guy from beartrax is legit! He has a great shop in Dallas!

And you're going to need some of that work if you do the "Overland" trip next Xmas-NYE in Big Bend I'm putting together

Here is a video of the outing on 01-03-2016. Could have more footage, but got tired of changing batteries and ran out of memory.
