Well here goes it's a rock







Just drive over it.

Those videos were cool, good flex and wheel travel will be a big help. The Sammy's and the YJ got some good air.
I bet you will get atleast 1 tire way up in the air

It looks like the key was NOT to stick with a bad line, and to reset, which I do naturally anyways once I pick a line. Unless I happen upon a line that just ends up working out well from begin to end. I never force a line. My only fear right now is being to excited to be there and getting shaky clutch foot!

After cutting a krawler, it seemed like a good idea to carry a spare now and then
The extra weight makes the rear suspension happy also.

The lil CJ3B is a poster child of homebuilt and recycled parts. That thing is such a cool built

Right on! Your big boy rig is what we all dream about, and you have both.... and you built it. Gotta love it.

Hey guys, I have been following this thread as my wife and I would like to visit Moab. I believe we are tentatively in if you guys will have us. What's the current status for accommodation ideas? Also I think we will be driving the jeep there so we might bring our hardtop and hopefully someone could help me take it off for trail runs?

I don't see an issue with joining. Any of us would be willing to help with the hardtop that's not a big deal.

Yes please join us! Plenty of help on the hard top removal. I've done lots of research in regards to accommodations, unless you are tent camping. If you are thinking cabin, look at Canyonlands. If you are thinking Hotel, they range from $80 at the cheapest to $200. I settled on the Moab Valley Inn, @ $105 a night that has good reviews and is in a central location. The cabin in the canyonlands rv park seem to be the most cost effective way to stay in MOAB besides a paid tent campsite, or truly roughing it in the dirt. Hope this helps.

We are down at Pack Creek Cabins, and will be glad to help on the hard top. I'm bring all of my support gear i.e. generator, welder, torch, jacks, hand tools, ETC and some spare parts. Oh and the kitchen sink for my wife.

Any color will do as long as its black.

That is a lot of tools and equipment to take for Moab wheeling.
Other than BFE and maybe Pritchet most of the stuff is challenging, but not hard on Jeeps unless you decide to do a big oops

Wow thanks for all the awesome information. I will do some research and get lodging firmed up this weekend. We haven't decided on the length we are staying but we have the 31st-8th so I will review the thread to see exactly when people are there.

I was thinkin about bringin my welder Art.... it's 110 capable, and I figure with flux core.... could get someone out of a jam if something works loose. But if he's gonna have one already.... I won't.
