Rick and Kevin, sweet pictures! Looks like a ton of fun!

I didnt know Robbie was going to be there! He has made alot of changes since I last saw his rig. I have been trying to get ahold of him for a while now with no luck. How did his Explorer do with the axle swap?

Actually I always start a thread for the photos so each persons photos are linked in the first post of the thread. Just makes it easier to go through everones stuff then searching through an entire thread.

That is Gerald's CV. He decided to try an optional obstacle at the very end of the last day. Luckily he carries a spare. Unfortunately he also damaged his rack and pinion housing, but it was still working ok when he left Moab.

man what a trip, got back home monday afternoon. problably the best one i've been on yet. had a great time meeting new people and talking to the ones i've met before.

those hills really put my x to the test (being open front and rear) at least my rock sliders held up and saved me some rocker damage.

well here is some of the photos i took, these are only from the digital camera i'll post the others when i get them back from being developed.

look in the moab 03 folder

Am I crazy or does it look like Gerald has no right front tire in this picture?

We also made it back without any problems.

We had a great time and again it was nice putting faces with names. It was great meeting everyone!

I didn't take any pics but did get some good video.

Kevin, I need an address to send you the brake line I borrowed and then destroyed. Actually I think the brake line you gave me was defective!

Thanks for everyones hard work in getting the trip together. I just can't wait for the next trip to Moab. I need a front locker!!!!! Now when is Truckhaven??

Also want to add: Char you can spot for me anyday!!

Also did anyone get a decent pic of me? I need an avatar pic.

It looks like he now has no paint on his right side ;)

I think what is confusing is he had his front swaybar disconnected, which allows IFS to act like IFS, something we dont see much, so his right tire stuffed and his left tire didnt, but his front stayed flat... if that makes sense. ;)

hell yes, it is my understanding that I now much much closer to this "truckhaven" place.

I was more then a little upset to miss Moab this year, especially since I drove right past the exit the day before I was to be there.

Glad the carnage was manageable. Wish I could have tried that Cliffhanger run........

Next time.
