Who do you think I "stole" it from?

I've got many, many more, and I plan on doing a trail report...if I can find the time. The GoPro vids are going to take some time.

There would have been more of me....but it took Kev 10-minutes to get in and out of his seat belt, so we just kind of kept moving.

It's a haul, but it's worth it.

Yes, him and his girlfriend came along, but he didn't have time to get his Metalcloak lift and 35's on, so he did Dome Plateau, Top of The World and the first part of Fins-N-Things...after which they decided to stick to some of the easier trails and do some sight seeing. We had breakfast together each morning and dinner together almost every night.

Performed like a champ. I ran the DuraTrac's at 16 psi, they gripped like crazy, and survived the sharp rocks without issue. They handled the road miles way better than the MTR's did, and would probably survive a return trip, which is a lot more than I can say for the MTR's.

5 tire rotation and oil change: 51,940 miles

I did another 5-tire rotation today too which makes it only 895 miles since the last rotation, but I wanted to get the rotation and oil change back in sync.

I used Penzoil 10W-30 and a WIX filter (51085).

Note: New tires were put on at 47,400 miles.
I did a 5-tire rotation today @ 51,940 miles, the new DuraTrac's went on at 47,400 miles so that's 4,540 miles between rotations, with a trip to Moab thrown in there.

I changed the oil and filter today too....so that's 5,161 miles between oil changes, a little longer than normal, but I had a trip to Moab in there, and didn't feel like changing the oil while I was there. I used Penzoil 10-W30 and a WIX filter (51085) again. I also changed the air filter (WIX 46081), boy did it need it after that Moab sand.

Here's the "carnage" from my 145 off road Moab miles:


Engine Skid bent


Transfer case skid scratched


Driver side Rokmen slider dented


Driver side rear control arm bracket dented


Gas tank skid had a fresh paint job before I left


It found alot of rocks....


....and received a new dent.


Passenger side rear shock took a hit


Passenger side of the stock transfer case skid took a hard hit, bent a bit.
(Don't mind the oil drip...I just changed the oil and some got on the skid)


Rear passenger side control arm bracket took a hit.....


As did the front passenger side control arm bracket.


Tie rod made contact with steering stabilizer bracket.


And for the first time ever the track bar made contact with the diff.

All in all, not too bad.

Here's a look at one of the Duratrac's I just rotated to the spare position.



The Moab rocks didn't chew it up too bad at all, nor did the 3,311 miles traveled there and back.

Kevin's MTR's look much worse....well at least one of them does.

Next weekend I may have to spend a few hours cleaning the red sands of Moab out of the jeep......or just leave it as a reminder.
