Yeah, Green Day and Minor Threat are the two easiest trails out there. Other than that, it is mostly buggies (they sure put on a good show though). My XJ is on 33's and was open diff's front and rear the couple of times out there; made it through just fine. Minor Threat was difficult because of differential clearance. Green Day has easy bypasses for the extreme stuff, pretty straight forward otherwise. We've always just ran it reversed too. So we started on the South trailhead and ran it going CounterClockwise as viewed on the map.

Sweet video though. We started that trail a little later in the day and underestimated the time to run it, so that section of the trail ended up being one of those unexpected night runs. It's kind of cool to see the huge cliffs we were inches away from, I didn't know those were there. Specifically at 4:18, I remember taking that same line.

4BT. HIS BUILD

The two of us made quick work of Kane Creek....we did get separated in the creek/shrubs once, but not for long. We never did see the owner of that Jeep that was stuck on rocky section.

I know you're asking about Moab....but I've started turning to the Sand Hollow area to break up the scenery. I love Moab and always will, however, going at least once a month (when there isn't snow) is getting repetitive. If you're looking for something new, check out Sand Hollow! The sand stone down there is, in my opinion, better than Moab rock.

The other thing I love doing is running a few of these trails at night. Poison spider mesa is a blast at night! Toss some cheap fog lights from Walmart on as rock lights, and go have fun!

I need to try Sand Hollow again with someone that knows where to go. The one time I tried Milt's I got off trail very quickly and just ended up playing in the sand

Depending on the dates I might be able to pull that off. Where do I need to watch for details? Here? FB? RME?

I'll end up making an event on Facebook. I actually think I already have it made...I'll take a look and send you an invite.

I'd love to do some wheeling in St George. Only reason Moab is my default is the trails are all so well known, they're always cake to find.

I was going to ask you to send me an invite for Feb, but then I saw the post of your rig. Although, I'd consider my xj fairly capable, i believe we are in completely different weight classes.

Not many of us are in the same weight class as Braden, last time I went wheeling with him the jeep ended up getting an upgraded lift and 35's not sure if I can wheel with him any more.....too much $$$$$

I'll have you guys know that I spend more time wheeling with a YJ on 33's and open than anyone else. I like to wheel, even if it's rattle snake at 5 mile pass.

The great thing about sand hollow is that there is a lot of fun stuff for all capabilities.

A YJ open on 33s. That rig sounds familiar

I'll vouch it's fun wheeling with Braden. His may be veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery built. But usually most trails can be done in smaller rigs. Just by taking different lines as ones he goes on.

Hey, I'd love to be shown around some good wheeling spots at Sand Hollow. If you get an event created, share it with me if you don't mind, or post where I can find the info. I may try to tag along I there's no snow. No way I'm driving 4 hours to wheel in the snow.

And thanks for all the replies. I'm looking forward to doing some new stuff this year.
