BigJK It was a fantastic trip. The small group made for some nice efficient runs. And Paul and Todd are great drivers, so things went really well.

Thanks, very good, with over a decade of combined experience on Moab trails we made out pretty good. More to come.

Commandocon Great time, great rigs, great weather, little bit of carnage, 1 lower control arm bolt, 1 ARB line, fixed in minutes. Many thanks to Bill, Kelly, and Matt. We ran Poison Spyder Mesa, Gold Bar Rim, Golden Spike, and Cliff Hanger. Cliff Hanger was swallowing my 37s like they were 31s, extremely washed out, Bill on 40s scraped his under armor and i knew i was in for a long day on my 37s LOL. But was a blast getting to see and listen to that Hemi run.

Lbear The Red Rock Four Wheelers are having their Labor Day Safari and Camp Out this weekend at Moab. I am arriving tomorrow night (not doing the safari) and staying through Tuesday. As a noob to Moab and with a non-lifted Rubicon I will be doing the lighter trails. Would love to wheel with someone experienced and especially since doing Fins on Tuesday. Gecko green (see avatar) so if you would like to edumicate me it would be most appreciated. Give me a shout if you see me.

Yes it is

We had to recover a friend's old cruiser that was very well built from there on the middle of the night one time. It was an awesome break but sure did kill our day.

yeah that's it.

One time we walked up nearly everything...the whole group did.

Another time it took us 11ty billion tries to get us all up.

That thing changes as much as the Puerco!

How's the entrance obstacle that direction? Hard to drop down off of?

Commandocon We are starting to decide our trails. 35s, lockers, armor, a willingness but not a necessity for breakage and body damage, a love for crawling, off camber, tricycling and fun are a few things to bring with you to Moab. We will be running Poison Spider Mesa, Behind The Rocks pictured here

2012 Moab Easter Jeep Safari Golden Spike Trail - YouTube

MOAB EJS 2013 - YouTube

Also running Cliff Hanger here

MOAB Cliffhanger 2013 with Teraflex - YouTube

Golden Spike will be done
