    just wondering but how are you computing these? cause (not to bash on FlyBoy lol) but I don't see how my Bronc is the same as his expo.... I'm fine to run with the lower group but I def want to do some runs with some of the bigger guys...

    I think it's less about your Bronc, and more about you being Army...(j/k Tilt, btw i just got my front driveshaft in and 4Lo is awesome!)

    Dont worry about the list, Jefe just put that together to show the possible groups. You should do fine with the modified group.

    So, I think my game plan for the weekend will be something easy Friday morning just to get aquainted, Fins & Things Friday afternoon, Sevenmile Rim Saturday, possibly something in the afternoon time willing, and Top of the World on Sunday if other people want to go. I can't freaking wait...

    Just going by the equipment list in your sig, the only reason you're not in the Modified group is the lack of a locker. With all the other stuff you should be fine jumping up a group though. ;)

    I was wondering about that- I guess I am borderline superstock/modified?

    I have a locker, 33's sliders, etc, but I know I am not on par with GJarret due to my unwillingness to incur body damage. :D But, he is a 3/4 in the modified category/group, and I am a 3 in the superstock group.

    I'm not sure why I put you in superstock. I must have missed the locker or tire size. :confused:

    Gerald wheels like a Big Dawg, but doesn't have enough lift to really be one. :p: I can't make too much fun of him because I was once in his shoes. . . but that was like 4 years ago. :eek:

    I do apologize for bumping anyone down a category, I was just following the classifications to a T. If you feel you can step up one, I'm not stopping you, just verify it with the trail boss the day of. Moab trails are not somewhere that you want to be pushing your rig or yourself past the limits.

    I wasn't complaining, just asking, was a little confused. I am a rookie rock crawler, so I will definitely need some good spotting.

    On another note- I am going to need somewhere to store my front bumper once I get there as I cant wheel with my front bumper on. Any suggestions?

    I'll mostly be running stock/superstock depending on the trail... it was cool that Jeff put together a figurative list so people could see who they'd be likely to wheel with.
    I'm not sure where you're staying... but you may be able to leave it in someones tent while we're on the trails (I'll volunteer my tent- its a 4man so it should fit it fine, I'm just not positive I'll be setting it up since I'll be solo). Or maybe someone with a cabin at Canyonlands wouldn't mind ya setting it in there (gently :D).

    Hmm, yeah I got rated a 2, I ran Hells Revenge with the Big Dawgs last year. I think mainly it just depends on the trail for the day, if you think your rig can do it I guess you can ask the trail boss and switch groups.

    If I understood correctly, Jefes list was just to give everyone an idea of potential groups... as far as I know the numerical rating that people are refering to seems to be from the original Explorerforum Moab 2007 form, where we each had to rate ourselves for trail purposes. ;)

    You don't have to rub it in.....:p: :mad:
    I sure wish we could make it, but things just didn't work out this year. At least I found a job so that is a good start.........That means I can at least wheel around here hopefully this summer.:thumbsup: :D
