I hope we can make it out too. I'm 90% for an afternoon run but no chance if we run in the morning.

That being said...who doesn't want more wheelbase except a 4 door.
Sick pictures G. Hopefully we can meet up in Penrose this weekend. haven't heard from Caleb.

Just got back from Moab last night. At least within our group and the trails we did, the JKUs had the advantage over we TJs; their longer wheelbase really helped. In the 4 days I was there we did Fins & Things, Potato Salad Hill, Hell's Revenge, Cliff Hanger, Poison Spider, Golden Spike, Gold Bar Rim, and Steel Bender. Cliff Hanger was my favorite.
This was my first trip to Moab. I learned the trick is to NOT watch videos beforehand, especially of carnage: After getting my front tire in the air too many times 3/4 of the way up Hell's Gate, I got freaked and had to run my winch line. I decided not to attempt Escalator. Maybe next trip.
Here are the pics I took, as well as 3 vids of me doing obstacles; nothing too fancy:

|Sinister6||Very Nice! I gotta plan a trip out there! So how did the 2dr fair to the 4dr with some of the obstacles?|

B4real and myself ran Hell's revenge with a friend, Jerry, and some serious Jeeps from FWCA (I think that was the name of the club). This is now a top 5 trail of mine. Lots of pucker factor, not a lot of bouncing around and amazing obstacles.
Here are some pics. I have some good video of Hell's Gate and the Escalator too. I'll gift to get more pics from my buddy Jose, I know he took a ton.
