5 Things I Learned Rock Crawling Jeeps in Moab

Sometimes I think 'off-roader' is not a broad enough term.

Racing through the sand with blistering speed is not the same as going sideways around a snowy corner or crawling slowly over slick rocks. Each one of these is considered off-roading, but really, each is vastly different.

And none more so than rock crawling.

The thought occurred to me while attending a trail ride hosted by BF Goodrich tires at the 2017 Easter Jeep Safari held in Moab, Utah, each year. I’ve spent years playing in the dirt, but my goal has always been to drive as fast as possible over things in a vain attempt to feel like a World Rally Champion.

The 'crawling' part of the equation was quickly apparent when our convoy of about 20 vehicles set out for 'Hell-dorado,' marked as an expert trail by the folks at Area BFE, the facility that hosted this trail ride.

As our convoy descended on the first impassable-looking piece of the trail, I began to understand the draw of this event.
