burris/RMR is amazing. we want to get back. next time we will do 5 days on trails instead of 3 3 is just not enough and maybe thats because we did not know the park that well. but holly chit it is amazing.

Looks like you found most of the fun spots. Did you try going left of the tree coming out of the rock garden? It's about impossible anymore

We went to Kansas Rocks 2 weeks ago. We've been to Tuttle a few times. I think I prefer Tuttle to Kansas Rocks, though we can't ever seem to go there when it doesn't rain 5 inches while we're there:homer:. I know the consensus after this trip was if we're going to Kansas, we're probably going to Tuttle from now on. Tuttle seems better even when wet.

Where did you stay while there? I stayed at Fancy Creek last year with the family. It was an easy drive to the trails.

Just so you know, where you are going up the ledges in the first part of the second video a friend of mine did it in his basically stock Tracker on 31" AT's last year about 30 feet to the east:flipoff2:. He didn't make it look as good as you, though. Right where you're at one of our group flopped his YJ on it's side trying to get the tires up on the ledge. He saved the :beer: but not his pride.

We stayed at fancy Creek to that’s an awesome legit campsite great views everything like you said easy drive down the highway probably not supposed to but it worked it was so wet this weekend that we can barely do any climbing at all I feel like it all climbed up them ledges had it not been for just a little bit of grease below the surface but yeah I was too steep and the rug down below it was crazy I would’ve loved to seen that 31 inch tracker do it better than awesome

I'd love to share a video of the Tracker going up that ledge but he rammed it up so fast I didn't have a chance to grab a video. Would you believe it's always broken?:lmao: This led to another guy in our group who didn't make it up previously with his TJ to jam it up there minutes later while I was dropping down to go up myself. He made it, but launched the front end up so hard we all figured it was going over backwards. He usually babies it, but took it as a personal challenge that the Tracker made it an he didn't. You never get the best videos.
The ones I do have you can find below if you're interested:

i forgot to mention i did break the cap on my front 1410 ujoint. all i can think of is i got into some rocks and one got inside the end and got the snap ring to break loose and caused the cap to come off one side. shit ton of rock rash all over front yoke, i mean all white. hahaha. we stopped for a break and was looking over drive line and noticed missing one cap, changed it out and no biggie. but holly cow a wow factor. never had that happen
