I'm colorblind so if it's green, then yeah, that's probably the other thing I noticed, except for the green part.

Many a time have I pulled into a parking lot for a quick snooze when I have like 20 min between appointments.

The summer I worked at the Rio, I would go to work at Mooin-Sun from 8am-4pm, then work at the Rio from like 6pm-12am or 2am depending.

It'd take like 20 minutes to drive to the Rio, so I'd sleep in my jeep in the parking lot....in like july....for 40 minutes. It was nice to nap, but damn was it hot.

Hi everybody!


For those of you considering Devils Peak; I have no idea how that silver p/u in the Pirate pics made it up some of those obstacles unless there was some copious amounts of rock stacking or the angles of those pics are really deceiving. It's a great trail, but the second obstacle always makes me a bit nervous, especially coming down because its one of those controlled slides situations.

Andrew, I wouldn't touch that trail with your rig.
Khris, you should be okay with your sliders and clearance. Do you have lockers? They would be a huge benefit for the second obstacle (no bypass) since your rig weighs a ton and it would be doubtful anyone could assist you (if it became necessary) without linking a few rigs together

Greg, you ever get concerned about the lean you get in the corners with the rack attached?

I cannot really tell the rack is there unless I check my mpg. The shorter wheelbase might make the extra weight a little more noticeable

When I had the rack on my Jeep I noticed a little bit more body roll but I never worried about it. You can feel it but it is no big deal unless you have some heavy ish up there. You will notice it in your MPG.
