Minimum Vehcile Requirements for Rubicon

Minimum vehicle requirements for the Rubicon portion of Sierra Fest:
33"+ tires
At least 1 FULL locker
If you have stock steering you must carry spares
No D35's or 27 spline 8.25's unless you have multiple spare axle shafts and knowledge to change them.
Spare parts including spare D30 shafts, drive shaft u-joints, spares for whatever non-standard parts installed on your rigs, a full set of tools and the knowledge to use them.
Mini skids or reinforced LCA brackets, a t-case skid, and a gas tank skid HIGHLY recommended. These are things that are REALLY HARD to fix on the trail!!
PLUS the equipment required according to bylaws:

1. Visibly charged fire extinguisher (BC or ABC)
2. First aid kit
3. Adequate spare tire, jack and lug wrench
4. Safety belts for driver and any current passenger
5. Adequate attachment points in the front and rear of the vehicle:
a. Acceptable forms of attachment points: (All Items must be mounted in a manner to provide adequate strength and integrity)
b. Tow hooks of OEM or greater integrity
c. D-Rings
d. Shackle/Clevis
6. 20ft 10,000lb snatch strap without any metal hooks
7. Secured battery (no bungee cords)
The minimum requirements are there to ensure we have as few hang ups as possible along the trail. Can you run the Rubicon on 31's and a D35? Yes you can. But this would make for a very long weekend if we dealt with multiple breakdowns along the way with a large group.

These minimum requirements are there to make sure everyone has a good time wheeling and not have it turn into a wrench fest.
