Just booked a trip with Prodigal Overland (great little family offroad group that puts on about 10 events/year all over the country) for 6/9-6/12. I have not seen or heard of anyone taking a TRX to Windrock so I'm excited to be one of the guinea pigs haha. I'm looking for advice from anyone with Windrock experience on what to expect and bring, as well as some general thoughts on my prep list below & the items I'm on the fence about getting in advance:

So far my Windrock-related prep is as follows:
  • Full PPF on all painted surfaces + headlights/fog lights
  • Winch installed in bumper & recovery gear, tow strap, snatch block, d-rings, soft shackles, traction boards, tons of tools/etc on board. They will have a hi-lift jack so no need to bring on my end.
  • Got OBD-2 reader/clearer just in case anything comes up. Also have fire extinguisher & front pod lights & rear aux lights in case the lights go out.
  • Just ordered SDHQ rear shock mount guards (wasnt digging the big metal lip to collect rocks on the Foutz)
  • Just ordered that sweet new dash cam w/front & rear cams to capture the shenanigans
  • Likely buying Rocky road outfitters rock rails w/integrated steps (this seems like the only outfit that makes em for our rigs)
  • Possibly buying Foutz rear differential/pumpkin skid (not crazy about losing any ground clearance here but i think our breakover/etc is bad enough that I'll be scraping this thing regardless of whether I have an extra 0.5" of ground clearance at the rear diff)
  • I've also got 2 new rear fender flares to put on if/when mine are annihilated lol

Are you running 35s still? If you upped to 37s, likely want to at least level the truck or invest in coils or Kings.

I took mine to Uwharrie and ended up riding sxs all day because there ain't no way it would fit down those trails. You're probably goning to use the skids alot at windrock.

Yea I'm leaving my SxS at home so i'll have to find (or make) a trail wide enough to fit my Rex haha. I always keep a machete, a couple hand saws & compact chainsaw on board so i'll be ready!

I can't see how this turns out. I tried a couple of local places and there's too much width with the TRX. We are just going to go yp to Ouachita and play on the forest roads and hopefully a few trails off the path.

So far Im gathering that trails 2, 11, 22, and 26 are likely the best ones for the Rex. Anyone have any other trails or feedback on these?
