    I am so ready to do this again. I hope to have a locker in Red before this trip though.

    One of my favorite days last year. Simple trail, but loads of fun and a great reward at the top. :)

    I am seriously considering this run. I haven't been since 2002 Eeeek
    I would be running a very mild built 1994 Explorer this go around. Will at least lock the rear before trailering that direction.
    Will be strange not rolling with the Big Dawgs.

    I'm hope'n to open up the front for a TruTrac myself before this run, but I think for now I'll run the LS rear till I flame it out.

    Should keep me from bust'n things, TruTrac + LS = easy on the drivie bits!

    Mild is Wild! :burnout:

    My 1994 is the same color and I have added the Limited grill to mine. I will be running a 2" lift with 33" BFG All Terrains. I will be throwing a Powertrax in the rear that I swapped over from a 2001 Explorer.

    Your explorer looks great.

    My last explorer had full width sas done with hydro steering, etc. Will be a bit of a change :)

    Looking forward to it though. This 1994 will still be a trailer queen to Moab :)

    I'll look into reservations as soon as my tax refund is confirmed and depending on how I feel these good years will do off-road...
    I'll be running a 2004 Wrangler, 2" lift, 32" tires, LS rear, open front.
