2017 Texas Raptor Run, May 18-21

Where: The Texana Ranch, 2191 Ross Road, Blackwell TX

Cost: $375 for a driver and 1 co-driver, $50 for each additional co-driver (includes T shirt and BBQ dinner and unlimited access to the track in a participating truck). Also $10 per person for the weekend at the gate paid to the group who manages the pits and clubhouse.

​What’s Included: ​Driver and Co-Driver T Shirt, Driver Bag, 2 BBQ dinner plates (served on butcher paper, under a tent, in the dirt, like food should be served at an off-road driving event). Additional shirts will be available for purchase.

I have some questions, guessing this may be the place to ask. Looking at the required gear list,
1. i have an ARB 30' recovery strap rated at 17500 and a Bubba Rope gator jaw 32k shackle, do both of these meet that requirement?
2. Looking for suggestions on open face helmets
3. First aid kit suggestion
4. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/htr-sm01bk/overview/ - Does this meet the fire extinguisher mount guideline and what is a suggested fire extinguisher for it.
Thanks

for the first aid kit, I get mine at REI, the soft sided camping ones are great and not too expensive, I leave it in the raptor year round

helmets - open face, Bell makes some nice auto helmets you can try on the moto versions at your local moto store to get sizing, then order the auto one. i like auto helmets because 1. they are designed for the type of impacts you get in cars, and 2. they tend to be lighter than moto helmets

tow straps - sounds like you're fine. I love my bubba rope

on fire extinguishers, I have one mounted behind my center console that either driver or passenger can reach with a quick release.

here's the mount I use: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/s...l2RhoCWHbw_wcB

Outstanding events for those that want to get together with other off road enthusiasts, Raptor owners, and that guy who's been talking all that shit on the forum. I GOT YOU NOW BITCH!!

Seriously, these events are great for learning about what the truck is capable of and how to push yourself. Or you can just hang out and have a few pops!









Buckle up, I want to try something!

Just a reminder to the newbs with aftermarket wheels, if your running stock wheels for your spares don't forget to pack factory lug nuts for them. Two spares = two sets of lug nuts.

Agree, it's always good to carry a set of nuts with you at TRR.

Is your truck stock? Seen busted knuckles and tie rods but depends on how you drive it. I carry two IWE's, PS Pump and fluids. Is this your first time to TRR?
