I want to try my best to make it. Its about 17 hours from Lafayette, CA to Moab, UT according to Google Maps. Long drive but it seems like it would be completely worth it. Maybe I'll bring my friend with his 1998 GC. The more the merrier!

I'll wheel the BB and 31s even though I'd love to be on Claytons by then.
You will be fine with that set up. Don't forget the deal.

I'll be there...I have to be

BB's & 31's are just fine - throw in some sliders and you'll have a great time.

What day do you normally head there Ryan?

And Bama has it set up where he has 3" and he has sliders, he is just looking for excuses.

Normally I head up Thursday morning, arrive early afternoon. The meet & greet is at 7pm I believe...or 5pm, I can't remember.

Last year I went up early to do some hiking in Arches NP - left Tuesday morning.

If you're looking for a caravan there are normally a couple that leave out of Denver between Monday and Thursday

Ok well just guessing, I think I will be able to manage Friday and Saturday off but would leave after work on Thursday. I would have about a 4 hour drive there so I might not make the meet and greet.

But I guess I need to get the job lined up first.

Psh, who isn't always looking for reasons to buy stuff for their Jeep? Moab sounds like a great reason for 6" Claytons.

Check and check. I remember you made it through, so I figured I wouldn't have to much of a problem.

Just messing with you and sounds like a perfect reason to me. I don't even think you need a reason.
