    I really like that color. Goes great with mud! You'd be camouflaged in Moab.

    Road trip! It's and 18 hour drive for me. For the last 3-4years I've been going once or twice a year. I'd love to move closer, but can't get the family on board. Not everyone loves jeeps, (UHG!) Did I just say that?

    I'm a member in Quadratec forum too. They went and posted a bunch of awesome shit. I'm not crazy of beating the crap out of my Jeep rock crawling. But there is a bunch of other trails that I would absolutely love to run. Being in NJ. Don't see that happening any time soon.

    How many members here are from NY, PA, NJ? I just found a 3000 acre 4x4 park in PA. All types of trails from beginniner to expert rock crawling. I would love to hit it up one day soon. You have to go as a pair. Maybe a bunch of us could go as a group. I'Lloyd try and post a link. It does cost some cash. And you do need some basic stuff. If any one is interested. I'LL post a link.

    I have done some really fun trails in Moab; Hells Revenge was my first and by far the most breath taking because of its Grand climbs and views, but others are great in their own way Like Cliff Hanger's 8 ft drop while 2000 feet up on a cliff ledge with just feet to the edge, and since it is an in and out you have to climb back up that 8ft ledge, and Gold Bar Rims amazing view at the apex. Metal Masher is pretty mild and then at the end your like, UH OH ! Fins and Things is great place to warm up and get the feel of your jeep on the slick rock ledges. My last trip the owner of Moab 4x4 Outpost (M4O), Steve Nantz took us out to a couple of not well known local trails called Pickle, a small runoff dry creek bed that has waterfall after waterfall to climb as you drive upstream. It was the most fun I have had on a trail in a while, followed by Mashed Potatos so named because it is a valley in the center of a plateau with a solid field of rock formations carved by thousands of years of wind and rain all overlooking the the Colorado river basin at the beginning of the Grand Canyon. There is more than jeeping to do there. Bring your mountain bikes for Moab is the mountain bike mecca of the US, There is also Hiking all through Arches national park (my 2 favorites are Tower arch and Delicate arch) Then there is White water rafting and miles and miles of Road bike trails. The only thing missing is the Beach, but close to perfection as you'll ever find.

    WHAT....no beach. That's it. Lost my desire to go. Hahaha. I live at the beach. Not going all the way out to Utah to drive on the beach there. Lol.

    Wow Pete. Sounds awesome. Sounds like some great times. I remember several of those runs/obstacles/trails from Quadratec videos they posted. Sounds like it's a hell of a lot of fun. After running some of those trails. Mountain biking would be boring. Lol.

    Maybe some day i'LL get out there.
