Is the final loop one way, preventing you from coming back down the same side you went up? Or maybe at a time other than EJS one could take the "easier" way..?

You could probably go back the way you came up but we had 75-100 jeeps coming up behind us.

Now that you've done Steelbender I bet you'd think the loop back down wasn't that bad if you did it again! Lol

No, it was still bad. Maybe if I had a couple more inches and wasn't loaded up.

Good point, I didn't think about you being loaded down.

Timing had me loaded down for all of my runs except Dome Plateau.

I think that is going to be my next upgrade. Have to balance between that and a new computer system though. The 8350 I'm running is sooo slow.

The Dobinson adds 1", but also adds/keeps the 1" of travel right? I am thinking about saving up for this for when I hit the 50k mark or so and my stock stuff is more worn out.

I noticed that wheyman with the hazzardsky lift didn't scrape as much as me on Dome, and watching the videos it looks like Edge has even a slight edge on that.

Dobinson lift gains 1" of lift and 10mm or 1/4" of additional downward wheel travel. That's directly from Dob.
