Had a great time out there. It was a little cold, dipped down into the single digits once or twice but we stayed alive.
Had 3 trucks thursday and friday and had a fourth show friday night for saturdays wheelin.
The wheelers were: Stealth4X4 (John and Mel), AVSfreak (Jay), MrDoug (Doug), and myself.


While I was there we ran:
--Hells Revenge, everybody did Hells Gate as well.


--Cliffhanger


--The Trifecta which consists of: Poison Spider, Golden Spike, and Gold Bar Rim.


Apparently wednesday before I got there Jay and John were running Behind The Rocks and ended up on Pritchett. I believe there were two CV's lost that day.
The rest of the trip there wasn't much more carnage. There was my bumper breaking :roll: and Jay throwing another CV. But thats it. Nothing huge and everyone was able to make it home just fine.

We camped just off of the Behind The Rock trail. A little bit south of town but nestled away inside a small canyon. Great spot. Wish it was warmer though.
Had turkey dinner on thursday night which was awesome. Everything came out perfect! Turkey, Stuffing, Gravy, Baked potatoes, biscuits.. Everything!

Anyway.. on to the pics.

We finally made it to a hotel with reliable internet access, back out in Alpine, CA to find this thread. Moab was a lot of fun for me, as always. Melanie, overall not so much even though we had some fun times mixed in there that put a smile on her face. Great to wheel with you guys and get in a little Moab fun. Technically we fit in 7 complete trails this trip, and a little section of an 8th and 9th by accident. Hahaha. I'll try to get to work on pics and vids, but it'll be a while.

Cheers!

Jay your rims are too shiny! :D

Looks like a blast. Glad everyone had a great time and made it out without too much damage.

they are a little bling for my taste, but like others have told me, with how dark everything else is on the truck a little bling for accent is nice :D besides, the price was right and they were exactly what i needed.

Sorry so slow getting to the footage guys. They are working me long hours through the weekend, and the reporting at the end of the day is killing my evenings in the hotel after work. Still doing homework from the day and I have to get up a 0415 in the morning. Drag.

Just a couple pics from camp the first morning we were in Moab (after the night it snowed)






Saw this on the drive out to Moab and it made me laugh... Who'd have thought BLM had a reefer division.

You and me both... the snow made it sketchy on some of the bigger downhill obstacles so we passed on High Dive and White Knuckle until a drier, less snowy day. But we still looked 'em over for a good long time.

Yeah, I kick myself over White Knuckle, should have dropped it.


JeepGuy didnt want to though, so we passed.

If not for the snow, white knuckle didn't look that bad with my wheelbase that day. But it was pretty heavily stacked though. Unstacked it'd be something to contend with -- but I think, still do-able esp. with the long wheelbase. I can see why a guy in a heap would pass on it, or at least take a strap to the bumper.

His heap is longer than a std cab though, about what I am shooting for wheelbase wise with my truck.

It was completely unstacked when we rolled up on it though. If ya cannt do it unstacked you probably shouldnt be doing it in the first place.
