Suzukis on the Rocks


ASA Suzukis on the Rocks is going to be Aug 9-12th.

We'll be leaving dam at Loon lake at 9:30-10am. For those who wish to roll in for some early play on Wednesday, a big group always camps at Bassi Falls. We'll drive up to the waterfalls and play around a bit in the big twister traps.

For new guys, it is THE Rubicon Suzuki summer bash.

I would ask that everyone planning on attending give us an RSVP so I can make sure to pack enough goodies up for my BBQ party on Friday night. We'll also be doing the annual group photo shoot on Saturday morning. A trip down to Rubicon Springs is planned on Friday. And if anyone is interested, I'll take a group on Saturday out and back across the Devil's Postpile.

Re: Suzukis on the Rocks

Just a couple questions as I haven't gone down the Rubicon before. What is going to be the minimum rig requirements to make it through without tearing it up?

Once my suspension gets in, I will be running the CSC YJ kit on spoa, relocated shock mounts, Arizonadriveline shafts front and rear, extended brakelines, Davesport full cage, Wheeler's front bumper with M8000, Double Tough rear bumper, 4.16 tcase, and 31x10.5 TSL's on 15x8 2.75bs wheels.

I don't think I will have lockers in by then though. Will this be enough to make it through without breaking parts. I'm the type of driver who just assumes to winch before I break something. I also don't mind taking a bypass if it's too much for my rig.

Re: Suzukis on the Rocks

With that setup, you won't have any troubles at all. I don't know if you have skidplates or not, but I feel they're always a must on a trail like Rubicon.

I'd say the minimum would be a 30" tire. We did have a guy with a stock setup come thru a couple years ago. Had to get yanked over a couple things, but he did great.

Don't worry about major obstacles either. The thing about Rubicon is that every major obstacle has at least one bypass.

Also, its a 4day trip without gas or services. You'll want to make sure to pack enough gas (an extra 5gallons always did the trick for us), food, and water for the whole trip. Once you're on the trail, its pretty isolated.

Any other questions.... just fire away.

Re: Suzukis on the Rocks

Okay, so I enjoy relaxing at Spider Lake! Big deal! I like kickin' back as much as I like kickin' ass. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

For those who haven't been to Suzuki's on the Rocks before, it is one of the best Suzuki trips held each year. We have had over 40 Samurai's on this trip the last few years we've done it. Our trip report for last year's SOTR can be read here: http://www.off-road.com/suzuki/event...rocksrpt00.htm. The previous year's report is here: http://www.off-road.com/suzuki/events/rocksrpt99.htm. And the previous year's reports can be found here http://www.off-road.com/suzuki/events/rubicong.htm and here http://www.off-road.com/suzuki/events/rubicon98.htm. As you can see, we have lots of fun on The 'Con.

The Rubicon is more than just 4-wheeling. It's also relaxing in beautiful, quiet mountain country, meeting up with longtime or new friends, and spending time with your family. If anybody is looking for more info than we have available here (http://www.off-road.com/suzuki/events.htm) for preparation, get in touch with me, Scott, or Glenn.

Dave, I hope you can get Kathi, Chris, the other Chris, and the whole AZ crowd to come up and show all the Jeeps how it's done again this year. And this time, don't break your axle!

Re: Suzukis on the Rocks

Lemme know how many Arizona guys are coming up. I'll be trying to get a good head count for packing goodies in this year.

Re: Suzukis on the Rocks

Anyone from Tx planning on attending? I would love to go, but don't have a tow vehicle for my Sam right now, and I don't think I'll have it running in time (damned Jeep products) so I prolly won't make it. I could drive it there, but would prefer to ride with someone if I did that.

Re: Suzukis on the Rocks

We've got some guys coming in from back East and a couple from Florida I believe. Don't think I've heard anything yet from anyone in Texas.

Maybe they don't like rockcrawling in Texas... ;^)
