That's a lot of tires. I'm getting confused just thinking about how to maximize the tread wear. You have two steering wheels, two rear wheels, two trailer wheels, and two spares all of which have different wear rates. AY DIOS MIO!

Love the Jeep!

Jimbo,
Are you still "in" for Moab in spring? I'm going to start some more serious planning after our Thanksgiving camping.
I picked up a Honda gennie the other day...

Anybody else here want to camp in Moab for a few days in May and look for pictographs and things?

I was in MOAB in Sept, after Colorado, but next years presummer is getting sketchy, my wife has to have knee surgery and I'll be in Hawaii for a while (Pearl Harbor)

Thanks Jimbo, it looks great. Their website isn't very navigable, at least from my computer (typically user error). Do you have a pic that shows the mounts from the inside?

The more websites put in their program, the WEIRDER they get

Try this--type in www.mbrpinc.com (internet window)
that gets you on the internet--next
clickon-MBRP inc jeep exhaust systems and accessories, give it a few seconds to ponder --next
clickon-roof racks and accessories--next

The program will show all the stuff you will need to check out the JK rack--Good luck

You aught to try to get around California/Navy websites-it'll drive you nuts

JIMBO

Moab eh? That is only about 5 hours or so from me. Hmm... I usually spend a lot of time in Dixie National Forest in Utah starting in April. I'll consider it.

Thanks Jimbo, I hear you about the websites, I'm doing time here in Al Asad. I found the rack on Quadratec's website and it shows the mounts inside. Looks like a great system, I hope to have that on a rubi by summer. Thanks again.
