    Easy day on the trails while getting the gears broken in.

    Some Toyo flex, 13.5 PSI. I took the center caps off before wheeling as I really didn't want to break one on the rocks.

    It's sad when you have to air down to get into your garage! 6.5 PSI. Looky at them pretty gold shafts in there!

    Got the Rugged Ridge tire carrier kit installed so I can hang my full size spare on the back instead of just having it in the cargo area.

    Well, not too impressed with the traction of these Toyos in the rocks. Decided to make a few improvement before our Moab trip in 5 weeks.

    Drove to Moab. Once there aired down to 13 rear 14.5 front. Seemed to work great!

    Day 1, Poison Spyder, paid toll on way by. Didn't matter though as a TJ blew out a ujoint on the Mesa. Continued on to Golden Spike. On the way to The Crack, a JK Rubi blew out a yoke on the rear DS on Zuki hill. Decided to turn around at that point since she only had 2wd now. Made it back to town just in time to get the parts to have her back on the road for day 2.

    Day 2, Behind the Rocks. Great trail. Skipped the big downhill obstacle but walked up Upchuck without a problem.

    Day 3 the wives and female wheelers took the day to shop leaving us guys without adult supervision! Woohoo! Started on Gold Bar Rim, to Golden Spike and The Crack! Got the group across and then the question became do we continue on this trail to PS which we have already done or turn around and run Rusty Nail backwards. One of the guys says "well it (rusty nail) can't be any harder than anything we've done already". Ya, little did we know. So we turn around, cross the crack again and start Rusty Nail backwards. So we get to the area just before "No Left Turn" and we all pretty much agree that the wives would have had a fit at this point had they been along. It's a good thing we have no adult supervision since that allowed us to continue on. I was in the front and ended up being the first one on No Left Turn which for us is No Right Turn since we were running the trail backwards. VERY INTIMIDATING! The Jeep made it with no problem though and we were able to get the whole group thru without incident. Made it back and hooked up with the wives and had a great time agreeing it was good they didn't come today.

    Day 4, Top of the World for the group, hotel day for me as I was sicker than a dog as something I ate did not agree with me.

    Day 5, Tower Arch, Household 6 driving. Nice easy trail for her to get some wheel time. Get back and start the prep for the drive home. Noticed tire's were up 3 PSI from when I first aired down. Weird since the temp was about the same as when I first aired down.

    Overall a great trip with the Ft Hood Chapter of Military Jeepers joined by fellow MJers from Joint Base Lewis McCord and Ft Leonard Wood.

    See the site is back up. Maybe a few things have changed. I'll play.

    38x13.50-17 Patagonia MT. Quiet. Great street ride. Haven't had a chance to get them off road.Click image for larger version.
