Reported by: Date Where # of Rigs Incidents
Ryan Rubicon Difficult run, mostly JK’s; Flipped rig; broken axles; 100-150 rigs overall at participating at event and/or watching issues; chaos on trail w/people moving rocks etc. Recommend mid-week run next trip.
Kirk Rubicon Front Group – lots of dings, scrapes and other damage; overall breaks: 6 tires, transfer case, 2 axles, mirrors
Jeremy Rubicon Nice spots reserved for other clubs that never showed; if hungry or not well, pull over so club members can assist; Reminder on tough runs like Rubicon, 1) don’t test driver on these, 2) be sure to have a spare tire, 3) always watch rig in front and back of you to ensure we stay together.
