Confusing ar not????

Just wanted to start a poll since it has been voiced that the rules for our comp are "Confusing" if so I will try to edit my post to explain the rules better.

As Originally stated.
Classes

Stockish*
Up to 37” tires
Full bodied truck, stock frame
Lifted for tire clearance

Modified*
Up to 44” tires
Body modes OK
Stock frame
Stock type suspension

Extreme*
Anything goes
Tube frame/ modified frame
Any tire size
4 linked coil over etc….

with these as further explenation...
Quote:
You are correct in Stock type would be could be aftermarket as well....as long as they are using the factory mounts and design like a lift kit for a blazer. However some of the new Bolt-On kits that relocate all the mounts might bump you a class
and
Quote:
Lifted for tire clearence is just that, lift springs, longer coils useing factory links, etc... etc...Stock type for the Mod class would be if your blazer came from the factory riding on leaves and you moved your mounts to put 63 and 52 under it, or if your jeep came from the factory on a 4 link it still has to be 4 linked on coils. 16" fox air shocks didn't come on there from the factory so they are a no go.

Explain this (yellow):
Modified*
Up to 44” tires
Body modes OK
Stock frame
Stock type suspension
So if a 1/2 ton truck showed up with Dana 60's on 44 using stock suspension he would be in the modified class?
would cross over steering/ hydro assist bump him up to extreme?
and for Body mods....would a Truggy using stock type suspension would still be Modified?
and last one 44" is 44" are you going by what the tires says it is or bring out a tape measure?
I'm bored so my post really has no meaning because I'm not going. It's more for anyone else that might go can better understand the questions I asked. Better understand rules set in place to divide the classes.

I didn't think they were confusing. To kinda answer your question mike, you have seen my rig. last year they classed my as modified. I am still running a stock blazer frame. It has not been stretched or shortened. I still run stock type suspension. leaf springs, but they are not the stock springs. spring mounts have been moved. I was told though that if I had it linked on one end or the other I would have been in the extreme class. All my freinds that competed last year, which was just about everyone that competed had absolutely no problems with the way they were classed.

I have tried my hardest to stay out of all this. I know alot of the guys that are involved in putting this on, but I do not know the one (and only one) that is complaining. This will be the only input I have on this. IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE RULES DON'T ENTER OR ATTEND. THEIR IS A WHOLE DAMN RIVER TO PLAY IN.

The guy I spotted for last year took third in the extreme class. We should of finished higer but could not compete in the bonus round because we split the oil pan open on the last obstacle on the last trail. Had a blast competing against everybody and look forward to seeing ya'll again. I have to work that Saturday or I would be there cheering folks on.

The rules may be a little confusing,Last year Fulltop was in mod texascrambler was in extreme and stock was jeeps,broncos,blazers with just spring lifts most where on 35s,and the courses where built to make fair for all of the drivers.Hope this helps.we will also put a rig in the right class if it does not meet the rules exactly,It was done like that last year and worked great.

You better get there early! We were thinking about just coming down on Friday night but the plans have changed and it looks like it might be Thursday night now.

Last year went awesome. People loved it and we got nothing but high fives and compliments on our courses. The only complaint was that WE pushed your comfort level.
We are working on that again this year. Bring you death grip cause We are going to twist you up and make you nervous. The number one thing you need to know is that we aren't going to play to your strengths, we are going to play on your weakness.
