a little /update...

The trip is still on. Current plan stands as; head to the park the afternoon/evening of the 28th to set up camp and wheel all day Saturday and Sunday depending on how peoples rigs hold up.

Looking at, at least five Jeeps/trucks at the moment with the potential for ten or more. Mostly Jeeps but there is a gentleman with a newer Power Wagon who plans to come also. Come for a day or the whole weekend, should be fun and a good way to meet local, like minded wheelers.

I am a DS at 2-54. As for prep... some camping gear, a strap is a good idea, and a good once over to ensure there are no ticking time bombs. What to check? Make sure your u-joints are in good shape, double check your steering compnents, and fluids. They don't do a tech inspection at the park. As for trails, that Ruby can take you a long way. There are at least 2 of us that will caravan over to the park together. We live in Patton Villiage and plan to head out between 4-5p on the 28th. You are welcome to meet us there or some place along the way.

The more the better. Don't be intimidated by the Morris Mountain web page. There is something there for every 4x4. There will be an array of rigs there. Of the guys I work with alone, we will have my CJ, Eagle327b's Cherokee, a stock 2010 Rubicon Unlimited, and a 1983 Grand Wagoneer. We are also expecting a Dodge Power Wagon, maybe a M715, and more. My point is, if you have a 4x4 bring it, we'll have a good time.

edit; whoops, your is not a ruby, no problem. I saw the reflection on the hood and thought it was a Rubicon graffic.

checking u joints:
With your truck in gear crawl under there and twist on the driveshaft. You shouldn't feel any kind of movement. You may not even if they are bad but that's about the easiest way to tell if they are really shot.

With that said. Where are you guys getting your steel? Shipping prices are insane if your not buying 200ft and i have no need for that much steel. Also any sandblasting places in town?

Man I think I need to be on here more often for how much Mr. Mayham throws my name around.

Anyways, as for what bjanks said is true and if there is slack just make sure if there is slack its not the tranny allowing a little play, some tranny/transfer cases have a little slack. If the slack is between the 2 u joints then yes a $20 dollar replacement would be a good idea. Another way is to look at the u-joints themselves for cracks or grease oozing out the caps or the body, unless u just greased them and it coming from below the caps.

If your rig fits into the category for level 3 trails then you will be impressed with yourself once you get there and play around. The difference between a level 1-4 trail is how hard you want to play. My XJ was stock besides a small lift, trimming the fenders and 33"x12.50 TSL's and I could do some level 4's and not some level 3's. It really depends on you and what you can and want to afford. My first trip costed me nothing besides transporting my XJ, but the second trip costed me my driver side stub staft and u-joint. To be honest I had almost as much fun trying to figure how to recover myself with Tim on a level 4 rock garden sideways with an open diff with only 2 wheel drive than most wheeling outings.

Everyone should go if possible the website is much more intimidating than the actual site, with the exception of a few obstacles. The trails out to the big obstacles are level 1-2 anyways but good for completely stock rigs not wanting to get to hairy right off the bat.

I'm overly motivated to get there and wheel the s*** out of my rig!!!!

As far a what to pack this is my list(it should give you ideas):
If your camping the tent, sleeping bag,toilettries(?), a stocked cooler full of food and beverages, spare u joints, spare driver side axle shaft(usually the one that breaks first), spare tire, jack, a good tool set, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, oh and its best to have front and rear recovery points. My trip to MMORV got caceled due to the recent snow. I heard its very wet and nasty up there.

Sounds like a good packing list to me Bjanks. MMORV has bathrooms and a shower, just not the prettiest.

Deer if you browse on here for someone looking to part with some cause they upgraded would be the best idea. I had a guy on here help me out with a complete inner and outer shafts on both sides for $35 dollars. Just don't be a ME., the skinny pedal isn't the only answer to an obstacle.

Yes there will be a grill. One of the gentlemen I work with is planning to bring his gas grill out. We are also bringing a gas generator and a small air compressor with an impact wrench and some other assorted goodies.

You wont be a hinderance. If there is an obstacle that you feel uncomfortable or peer pressure cant get you to do it most have a bypass. Now from my previous trips there the bypasses are still challenging in some areas
