I've been keeping quiet about the Moab run, I didn't want to jinx myself, but it seems everything has worked out.

I will be arriving on the 8th, staying at the KOA (made my reservations at the end of Janurary :D). 1 for dinner.

33" MTR's W/Kevlar installed.
Locked in the rear.

Big Pack dog?

That would be locked at both ends and 35s.

What kind of rig are you running again?? I caught the post that said it's not a RBV, but I've never seen what it is:dunno:

You should be just fine with 33s and the locked rear.

Alec did it in his 2wd Sport!! Have to say it was one of the craziest things I've seen... but he did it and didn't bust anything. Lot's of this:burnout:

Fj Cruiser :
3" Suspension lift
ARB Rear Locker
33" MTR's
Full compliment of skid plates
Dom Rock sliders
Johnny joint Dom Trailing arms
More clearance then the Black hole has on 35's.
Hella Black Magic 500's
Front & rear tow points
Full roof rack
Extreme high lift


The Bad is it still has stock bumpers, and no winch yet. :( Only been a month since I started to modify it tho. Think I did a pretty good job of it so far. :)

Also since im arriving mid day thursday is moab rim an all day trail or will there be an afternoon evening run on another I can hit up

Depends on how far you want to go. The only time I have been on Moab Rim was a night run to the first overlook. It takes less than an hour to get there in a decently built rig. The best part about doing it in the dark is you don't have the whole fear of falling off a cliff bothering you since you can't see anything except where your lights are. :D
