    Came in from Tahoe side on Friday, camped at Buck Island then drove up to Spider Lake the next day. I bypassed Old Sluice and went up the slabs and back on the slabs, the rest of our group got stuck dealing with a broken link on a Toyota going up Old Sluice. That ate up most of the day so we didn't go any further than Spider Lake.

    We had a lime green Land Cruiser snap a pinion at the top of Big Sluice on our way in on Friday, winching it back to the bottom was the only time I had to pull rope all weekend so I was pretty pleased with how the jeep did. We had to pull the pinion to get the rear end unlocked then dragged it the whole way to Mckinny road on Sunday, it was a long day.

    Hopefully I got the names of all the trails right, that's a lot of different Sluices to remember on the first trip...

    We saw the land cruiser at the bottom of big sluice. Thatís about where we saw that Nissan Frontier if you guys ran into them. What a mess that thing was.

    No... Didn't notice the Nissan but we did end up behind a few four runners and a Lexus on Sunday. All IFS, most with open front and rear ends, only 2 winches in the group, and 33's on most of them... It was an hour stand still before they managed to get off of the trail and let us go past.

    Is the aluminum option not available anymore or are they just currently out of stock?

    No longer an option. Wasnít as popular as it needs to be for mfg/inventory purposes.

    This is what I ended up doing, thanks Eddie

    Ended up adding some KC fog lights too, I need to find some knobs with 5/16" bolts to make a quick disconnect for the plate
