Lol yeah I was trying to convince my dad to get it cuz he was looking for a TJ but he said it had too many upgrades he wanted something stock to start with but if I were you I'd keep it its a sweet rig and you got the STI now that's my plan in the future actually get a STI for DD and jeep for weekends and rock crawling

Haha yeah it's a money pit, sad part is that I really need to sink another 4k into it to get it 100% (winch, regear, front locker, new mud terrain tires, chromoly front axles, new shocks, front and rear fenders) so it's gonna be a while till its completed

STi is fun but I will eventually need a tow rig which means 3 cars...not ideal

Thanks man, being that I haven't wheeled in months I'm itching to get out and play. At this point I will be in full build mode to get ready for the Easter Jeep Safari. Being I have never gone I have no idea what to expect. At this point I'm building a trailer and gonna drive the Jeep out there! Well, that's the plan lol

HA! We are going to EJS next year as well!

We went last year, and it was a blast, we drove there and back no issues and would do it again. We went alone this year and still had a blast, but I think it would be cool to convoy with some other people next year.

You register on rr4w.com. You better get a hotel asap as they fill up quick! I dont remember the cost but the experience is definelty worth it. A big thing about moab is to come prepared for the weather. One day we were there it was 85 degrees, the next day we woke up to snow and wheeled 7mile rim with it snowing.

The only thing id like to do different is run hells revenge with my own group. When you run it with the ejs group they dont let you do hells gate or the escalator. Being more street friendly is a plus, because its a pretty long boring drive out there. Next year im rocking the soft top as loud as it is and am going to wheel topless and doorless out there. The views are awesome, its not dusty, and when the weather cooperates its very nice out there.

Yes there are places to camp with showers and stuff. I think there is dry camping areas too. I would camp but 9 days is a long time to rough it! haha
