Planning on attending will be my first Rally Point and first trip off road out side of very mild fire roads in the Sam Houston National Forest.

Question for me is should I expect any trouble with my Rig based on trail conditions?

Driving a 2001 Yukon XL w/6.5” lift 35” tires no gears and the weak chevy front in is all stock although BDS does a pretty good job with CV Angles

Oh no way. You need at least 12” lift, plus a YouTube channel, drone, trasheroo, and a scottle to even think about it.

If anyone is looking for something to do next weekend, I will be at Padre Island National Seashore Sat. 26th and Sun. 27th. Hopefully celebrating passing my Ham Tech exam. You are all welcome to come out. Park fees will be waived Sat. for National Public Lands Day.
