We are looking forward to it! We did a shakedown run up above Bountiful on Friday night with some co-workers. I discovered that the isolator and 3/4 spacer like to shift side to side when I flex out, so I need to silicone the two together so I don't spend all my time in Moab getting out to fix the spring I am glad we found out before we were on a trail down there.

I see your axle is done, anything else you need to do?

Funny you should mention it. I accepted a position back in Michigan over the weekend. This will be my last Moab trip as a local. Besides pack the entire contents of my home and garage, I need to finish the axle breather and I'll be ready to go.

If it is a good opportunity for your family, congrats! I remember you mentioning a desire to move back closer to your roots. You better keep that UJC member #16 in your sig. You have done enough jeeping here to call yourself a Utah Jeeper for life.

I'll still see you next week. I pushed back my start date in MI a week so I can make the trip.

We have been trying to run Cliffhanger the last few trips, but haven't made it yet. Will has some family coming with a stock rig, so I imagine some will be pretty mild. What are you looking to run?

Do you need a couple WJ's to tag along on your hypothetical photoshoot?

I want to hit cliff hanger for sure. My bro won't be able to run some of the trails we do, but I still want to hit a couple new ones.

It would be awesome to run trails with you again Brian, let us know if things change and you can make it.

Front diff fluid change, new cover installed, Isolator and 3/4 spacers siliconed together so they don't sheer off of each other when I flex and drop a coil, everything greased, new front body side LCA poly installed...I think I am ready to go!

Chris, do you still have a buddy that is coming to run trails with you? IIRC, that was the plan. Or is the family coming with you?

What trails do you want to hit? I am thinking Cliffhanger for sure, what do you think about Elephant Hill?
I was thinking of Tower arch as well, maybe Fins for trails my bro could run. With the early light and late light, we should have time for two trails per day.
Nothing is set in stone, what trails do you want to run?

Cliffhanger sounds good. Maybe Strike Ravine for another difficult trail and Chicken Corners for an easier one you brother can run? They run CC with a stock WJ in Wells book.

Packed up and ready to go. I will be going alone, the temps have scared away the family. Is there anyone other than Will and I making the trip?

We are looking forward to it! I am almost all packed up and ready to go. We'll have to stay hydrated for sure, looks like it is going to be a bit warm
