It's not if your rig is ready.  Are you?  if so - GO! :yupyup:

You don't have to be daring and roll, it will just hold the group up. Your truck sounds like it will do fine, just relax, pick good lines & you will forget it was daunting after the first few miles. You gain experience by actually going & wheeling. Some things are still intimidating to me, they are just different things than when I started.

You won't have any porblems.  Maybe just your clutch burning up if you use it too much.  But with the lockers it will be fine.

Hey John, Like we talked, you'll be with a very good group. Good with parts and help. It like the Marines, "no man gets left behind". Atleast thats how Me and my buddys work.
