Moab sucks...

Its full of drop offs and big rocks that make you smile. Then when you get done you have to go back to real life... Its not fair.

Some of the boys from HigherGround4x4 did a week in Moab did 9 trails and a day up in the trees just to relax.
Some pics. Some mine. Most not.

The only way to see the trail is to ride on the roof of an XJ


Took a day and made our way to the Mt.




Hiked up to the arch at sunset


Looking down into moab


Golden crack


Doing the best I could on the hot tub

It did ok. I ran out of time and money so I used the rubi lockers with one pump and it worked good in the shop but not even 25% of the time on the trail. The tires would not hook for anything so I had to work the jeep more than I wanted to.
Over all it did ok but once I get a few small things worked out it will be better than anything I have ever had on the rocks.

You should all do a trip to Moab at some point. There is no other place like it on earth. Its hard to show just how cool it is with pics.
I had to pester a few guys from AZ about it for over a year and now that they have been they are working on the plan for Moab 2010!!!

BEAUTIFUL pics, wow would I love to go to Moab some day. Thanks for posting them, they were all great. Some of those pics that showed Jeeps pulling right up next to those drop-offs kinda made a part of me pucker up pretty good.

That video really shows how much the wheelbase stretch helps.

Good video!
