Dangit. I keep getting a "security issue warning and cannot upload pictures. Possible they are too large.
Big thanks to 67truckguy for leading us through fins and things. The baby lions back was fun, even though I kinda had to fib to the missus to go up there.
Every little thing of metal mits under my truck hit something, sometimes harder than I would have liked. but it's all good. I'm completely in love with the sand flat area and think I might go back up there later with the grandkids just to show them, no trails just a peek inside. They hiked canyonlands today. We rode in comfort.
Kristenandq also attended, as did 67truckguys friend Jeremy and sig. other with a jeep rubicon. Q broke a hub but he'll have it fixed up tomorrow and get back out. It was awesome to meet Q and family. I hope this happens again for us.
Just took the grandkids over baby lions back. We're close enough I could take one of them up and over, come back and pick up the other for a quick trip. Having only 2 seats meant 2 extra trips for grandpa.
Have you seen the Gooney Bird or Uranium Arch?
Um, I guess not. do tell
One of these things is not like the others.
3 wheelin q
I'm on a road trip with family so can;t look it up in the book. There is a rock formation that looks like one of those water drinking toys you get at sate fairs. I think it is at 38.60217 x -109.673254. Not a big deal but the kiddos might think it's cool
I believe Uranium Arch is in the same area, NW of town 38.676090 x -109706509.
Have you looked at the 7 mile Rim trail? It would be good for everyone except Allen ;-)
Betty has some new body mods
Got a little close to a dirt ledge.
If anyone else has updates and or pictures I would surely enjoy seeing them. hopefully the updates are enjoyable also.
Is everyone on the road home? How did Saturday and Sunday go? The crowd needs input!
can you see all these pictures? dang I hate facebook for being the way to do this, but I can't seem to get most pictures to load on the forum, and there are too many
Found out mine was broken for good. Ended up renting a side by side. Just waiting for Alex to down load his pictures then I will post them either to fb or here. We got home last night.
Broken for good? what happened?
If you can, I set it where you can contribute to my above album----ahem, puleees!
Front diff is making all kinds of noise. The axle shaft messed up the inside of the spindle. As far as pictures I will put them on your album when he downloads and edits them.
We left Moab on Tuesday morning. It was great meeting some new explorer owners and wheeling a couple of trails. I am looking forward to next year! I am not sure how to download pics to the site but I will try to get the few pictures I have on to FB.
I am glad to hear that everyone had a good time and made it home safe.
I'm sorry to hear about the breakage on the front axle. Expensive fixes are never fun.
Jon, will a foam pad and some polishing compound help out with the rock rash? It's hard to tell how bad it is in the photos.
whats the specs on the two first gens?
Mine the brown and tan one. Has cut and turned beams 4.5 inch bds coils in the front spring over in the rear 3inch body lift that i am in the process of removing now. I just got my rear axle back with new gears and eaton elocker my other front diff back in with a lunch box locker 5.13 gears. they were free. otherwise would have done 4.88.
Jon when Alex gets back from his dads i will have some pictures. Him and his dad like to edit pictures. sorry it has taken so long.
Amazingly, a little sxratch x and some rubbing got a lot of it out, but there are a few deep scratches and smudgy looking areas remaining. It's ok though, that is what this truck is for.
Thanks. I am looking forward to his pictures since he was manually operating a lens and all that good stuff that makes pictures turn out good.
