Yea - granite vs sandstone vs pyrite etc.

SLORP has some of the granite that makes them Arkansas diamonds. Awesome traction dry - just the morning dew makes em glassy.

Best tire howl I ever heard was in Moab - Fins n Things. Sedona is a good trail spot but very few "challenges". Might consider Dusy for our May run next year (thinking of base camping Blyth area with day runs south to upper Picacho Slough and north to Parker area). Unless the club wants to tow out here (membership mostly lives in central and south Cal with members in Utah, colo and AZ - and two of us here in Dallas area). Our get together usually involve 10-15 jeeps. We had 20 in our last run to Mexico - 6 years ago, and looks like we will have 12 in the Jamboree in a month.

i am a Parker 4 wheeler member. The best concentrated set of trails is off the La Cienega road north of parker. many 3.5-4.5 trails. Best time there is after its not hot Oct'ish. we go dark(no meetings) July-Aug, just to hot for anything really.

Dusy is only open from Aug1st- Oct31. Your best contact for the trail is Big ED(mountainguyed67 here) from the Fresno 4 wheelers, they do the maintenance and tree clearing of it, maintain the rest rooms etc. VERY good bunch of people) One reason its hard to get people to it, small window of time. The trail is not a loop so there is some logistical issues towing.

best burn out in moab i seen was on Escalator and Hell's gate by a 2x4 sand rail. thing went WOT all the way up both. looked like a NHRA run. I thought for sure it would endo. thing flew up getting air. was rather impressive.

Going through all the trouble you might as well get a better crossmember. I used the OR-FAB one when I put in my JCR engine and transfercase skids. I really need to get a gas tank skid. The stock one is awful.
