I think he was stock, and he was making it through everything. Had to use the expensive pedal a little more, but no major damage

He hit a rock a little hard and there was a nice smell of fuel after that. I know I was about 3 behind him when the trail met up with the wash .

Where you there? I was in the red TJ with the tan top with IL tags

Let see if I can post a pic

Yeah, I was the other red TJ in the pics above. Right in front of him, so if he was leaking anything I wouldn't have seen or smelt it. I usually just saw him in my rear view on the gas bouncing through the wash (not the preferred method lol)

Once again thanks for the pics. I guess i can just maneuver it out of some big boulders. How long is the stretch of that rocky part? Is there a junction or split that will lead to the wrong path and get me lost?

Next time we will have to Introduce ourselves, lol..

The Vegas Valley guys like to run some of the more Challenging stuff. I am also a member of the Desert Wranglers meet up group, most are a little green and the "club" runs are easier. But the posted runs from the more experienced members are good. They been fun to run with. Here is a run they have posted for next week::
On the 7th Gold Butte & Devil's Throat -more scenic than anything else but few areas to play
http://www.meetup.com/Desert-Wrangle...ents/17495089/

blazepsi- I would not run that trail alone.

Here is where that ZJ hit

Looks like a good turn out! I've never been on a run with that many rigs before. It seems like it would be slow and frustrating getting that many trucks up and over the path, but maybe i'm wrong?

i should join in some time on a big run.

Depends on your definition of slow and frustrating, but yes it took a while. If you are looking to drive non stop then I would suggest staying away from the larger group runs.

I have fun getting out and watching/trying to help other people make it through spots though, so the slow part doesn't particularly bother me.

Probably the worst backup of the day, and a pic of what a lot of the trail looked like outside the wash

I'm not somebody that has got to be constantly moving or what have you, just think it might make for a long day if its on a technical trail, I've never gone out with more than like 4 or 5 jeeps.

Looks like alot of fun though, seeing all those different rigs making their way through the rocks.


I want my waggy back

Got over that first bump on escalator and there was a ton of water in that second level (cant see from pic) and i had no traction to make it up any more. Tried hard too and ended up with a broken tail light and dented/scratched rear hatch both on the passenger side. Last time out to Logandale with Roger, I had more trail damage. Go figure.

When we got our permits for a 4x4 camping pass in Canyonlands, they said no dogs allowed on a piece of paper we signed, like a waiver/emergency contact info. When we camped in Moab, other ppl around our sites had dogs. When we went to Arches, didnt see/notice any signs about dogs.

Yea we went the week after EJS and thought there were gonna be a **** ton of off roading jeep, but the trails were not crowded at all. Looks like Potato Ridge was way more crowded this week.

If my jeep goes belly up, I want to the end up in Moab in its after life. Jeep to other vehicle ratio is 3:1
