Moral of story..... Don't go wheeling for a week with the JF build crew unless you want to be broke.

How long to run it start to finish? With spotting.

With spotting and no breaking probably 45 mins to an hour. Break something and it changes. Another buddy in his CJ on 35's got in a lil; ways and pretzelt and shredded his driveshaft and had to be towed out. Luckily it was not in the harder part yet, it will test your ground clearance and flex.
The green TJ had a much easier time doing the last turn the last time we ran it. Georgie's crack is fun too, about a quarter mile if tah, but all up hill fairly steep, big rocks and some off camber stuff, way cool and you can walk to camp, you can camp next to the thing and get a beer when you break or get stuck lol.
You might want to start thinking about that 8.8

man I REALLY want to run that now. I think me being a little more narrow than you would be an advantage in some of those areas.

The squeeze would be easier, still Cliff isn't all that wide and he rubbed the body and cage on it also. Do you have spare rear axle shafts?
A pair of those could save the day and not a terribly bad idea. Same goes for some 1310 u joints.

Yeah I carry spare's in my truck tool box, I'm not worried to much about that though, Taking it slow and picking my lines would be the ticket. I'd be more concerned with breaking something steering related since it looks like some sharp turns w/ obstacles. I wanna run that..... it's now moved up to the top of my list and once I get my mind on a trail I get a little obsessed! Haha.

Cool, you will have fun with it, carry a pitman arm and if you have currie steering buy some of their tierod end's. I have seen those shear off. You will murder your arms on the one turn for sure and climbing the one wall.

A part of me wants to leave real early in the morning.... run this trail and head home, then get up early again and run Dusy on Tuesday. I'll be patient and wait until we can get together Art, with MoabRubi and IEcrawler also hopefully.
