2020 Moab trip... YJ's +

Hey guys,

Our NorCal group has got our 2020 Moab plans dialed in already. So like last year, this is a general invite and info. thread for the trip. About 6 months out, so hopefully enough time for some of the forum members to make plans.

We've typically done the first week of May. This years dates got pushed back a bit and are going to be May 12/13 thru May 24. IIRC Randon and company went later in the month last year and we missed each other.
I've already made reservations for a VBRO. Others will be camping @ Kens lake again.

Those going so far...

Timatoe… YJ
Rockworm… LJ (former YJ) + friend bringing Ford Raptor
Mase58... CJ-5
Varnish... LJ (former TJ)

So again... about 6 months out so you all have time to plan. Chime in if you want to go!





'05 LJR, 6sp, RC long arm w/MC 6" coils, 5.13 D44's w/chromo shafts, MetalCloak fenders/sliders/body armor, 37x12.50 MTR's, Warn 9.5, RockHard swing out w/full spare. <><

So...I’ve planted the seed to my wife and she did not shut me down.

Now, assuming I go, do I flat tow the YJ with The JT and get a brake controller or drive the YJ?

You need more than a brake controller.... you need a complete braking system.

Yep, most states require that a trailer weighing over 3,000lbs (which your Jeep becomes when you flat tow it) have brakes. That doesn't mean the brakes that exist on your Jeep. It means you need a BrakeBuddy system.

https://www.etrailer.com/dept-pg-Tow...xoCvDgQAvD_BwE

It isn't just a state requirement though - your truck's brakes aren't designed to stop an extra ton and a half of weight.

YJs are right on the edge of being safe to tow without a brake system. I wouldn't tow a JK without brakes.
