Hi Skippman! Thanks for the compliment I'm using the Lund Rhino Lining guards on the rockers. They are made of Rhino lined polyurethane. They have held up beautifully.

Thanks for the link! They look great! Wondering how they'd look on an Anvil JK

Hi Steven,

I am looking at Changing out my wheels on my Jeep. Some of the ones that I am looking at have a 4.75 backset. Did you have to do anything to your Jeep to run that backset?

Hi Lon,

The Method Fat Fives I'm running have a 4.72" B.S., so within a 1/4" or less of the 4.75's you are looking at. When I was on 35's, I ran those with the 4.72" BS, no problem at all. Here's a pic for reference.





When I made the move to 37's, I added a 1.25" TeraFlex spacer for clearance.









I hope these pics help illustrate the stance, and wheels with and without spacer. (I don't have any shots directly down the sides) From experience on my last trip to Moab, having the 1.25" spacer and the wheels out further kept my fenders off some rocks. Something to consider. The down side is you will be slinging mud/water with the wheels out past the fender line.



I hope this helps in your decision process.

The Clymb deeply discounts all kinds of outdoor merchandize. I'm not sure where I'll store/carry these, open to suggestions.

I'm also adding my first Rotopax set-up. This will be for potable water. We would carry a couple days supply of bottled water on the Moab runs. I like the idea of a built in solution. I will mount these from the roll bar. My plan is to go both left and right side. Here's a look at the parts.

RotoPax mount...


This beautiful piece of machined aluminum is how I will mount the Rotopax to the roll bar...


FourTreks bracket and RotoPax mount combined...


I sourced the Rotopax kit through Rebel Offroad. I'll post again when I get it all bolted in. Stay tuned...

http://www.rebeloffroad.com




-Steven
Hi Steven,

I know this has been awhile, but how did you mount the Rotopax mount to the Fourtreks pax mount adapter bar? The Rotopax bolts are too short and the Fourtreks 1-1/4" bolts are too long.

Thank you,

Tak

Hi Tak! You're right, it's has been a while since I did this install. I remember just running to the hardware store and sourcing the correct size bolts. I think they were an inch long. Double check that against the 1-1/4" bolts FourTreks sent out.

You no doubt looked at it, the actual install write-up is on page 28, post #821. The mount has performed flawlessly. We wheeled pretty hard last summer in Moab, carrying a full 2 gal. of water with us the whole time. I'd definitely recommend this set-up.

Thanks Steven, the short bolts seem to fit without the washers, but maybe a couple threads tight. I ended up cutting the long bolts and they worked great. Now, I'm running into a problem fitting the 2 gallon Rotopax in my soft top.

Alright, it's getting to be late in August, so that means I'm really starting to think about my next trip to Moab. On the long drive home last October, I was beginning to put a list together of additional mods and gear that I wanted on/in Rubi. I've completed many of those, radios, on-board air and complete skids. Here's another piece that I'm adding.

Blue Ridge Overland Gear Tool Bag



I got this idea directly from @AzScooter . We had a chance to wheel together on 7 Mile Rim, where he bent a wheel and lost air in a tire. He did the repairs himself. When we stopped for a break and were comparing Jeeps, I asked to see what he carried with him. He was using the Blue Ridge Overland Tool Bag, and had a great assortment of tools with him while on the trail. He had the Blue Ridge bag packed with tools, and said it has held up really well. I'm sold.

The bag comes with 6 pouches that velcro into the bag.



This allows you to take out only the pouch you need to work from say, combination wrenches only.



The quality of these looks great and they are American made. Time for me to start pulling some tools together. What's everyone carrying for tools on the trail?


-Steven

I carry way more than I need, but I don’t worry about having the proper tool. I have a full 3/8” socket set, making sure I have an 18 mm. A full set of combination wrenches, fairly complete screwdriver set, a set of channel locks, with water pump, Standard, parrot beak and needle nose pliers, a small sledge hammer, and impact sockets, along with an impact wrench. I also have a few adjustable wrenches and Allen wrenches. I carry everything in my Blue Ridge overland bag, without a hitch, with the exception of the cordless impact and sledge. It really is a super impressive tool bag

Take a look at the products made by Atlas 46. I got there at Canyon trunk bag and the air Yorktown mechanics tool roll. The tool roll is similar as to what you got there and is also made in the USA and super heavy duty! The canyon trunk is nice because not only is it large but it's extremely heavy duty and it's designed to tie into the floor Loops in the back of your JK. If things get a little more exciting then you intend it's not going to hit you in the back of the head. The trunk bag is split into a couple of compartments lengthwise and one side easily holds all my recovery gear and I slide the tool roll into the other side with some room to spare.

I like to hear what guys are carrying with them. I tend to pack WAY to much with me when I go..

Thanks @AzScooter for your detailed tool list I know you head out with the Scout's Motto in mind.

Here's a another addition from your recommend list...



BubbaRope Gator-Jaw Synthetic Shackle. Rated at 32,000 lbs. Made in USA.

Those synthetic shackles are really nice. I like how they don’t get stuck as much under stress as the screw pins do.

As I'm beginning to really think about my upcoming trip out West this October, I knew I wanted to carry more fuel. After looking at a few options, I opted to try Rock Slide Engineering's EZ Rack Kit. This will allow me to carry extra RotoPax Fuel containers on my spare. Here's a look...




I ordered the lockable mounts to use with this set-up...



Starting to put it together...



I'll post more pics as I get this fitted onto Rubi.


.......And, I've been working really hard on another project for most of the year. Take a look at that here.......

I would love to hear your feedback, you can comment on there. Thanks Amigos

Thanks Scott! It will allow me organize and display content in a much better way, both stills and video and write-ups.

It's been a piece of work getting all the content built into the Blog, but I've enjoyed it. I'll still post here, but the blog can carry more in-depth look at what I'm doing.

Lol...you got it my friend! Is you cell still the same?

I'm still in the planning stages, but my thinking is to run Ouray on our way out to Moab. Overnight in Ouray and drive the back route to Moab via Route 145>90>191 up to Moab. Have you driven that route before?

I'm still in the planning stages, but my thinking is to run Ouray on our way out to Moab. Overnight in Ouray and drive the back route to Moab via Route 145>90>191 up to Moab. Have you driven that route before?

I have not taken that route. When I went out to Moab, I took I-70 from Denver to 191...

I've done only I-70 via Denver as well.

Leaving out of Ouray, maps are showing 2h 54min-150 miles the back way(CO 90), 3h 37min-208 miles if I head back to I-70. I may try this new route. I'm just curious as to how scenic or not it is?
