Steven (or anyone going to CM2010) is there anyway you can find a FJC owner with the ALLPROOFFROAD 3.5 back springs and ask them what Shock they paired with it, I need to find a good match for mine? I wouldn't mind knowing if they have a shock in now but would recommend another..... and great pic's!

Is Kane Creek getting harder than in the past? I did it in '07 with my 31s and rear lockright in my FJ40 - some of those pictures make me wonder if I could do it now or if you guys are just taking different lines than I took...like the 1st and 2nd pictures of that 80...I remember that spot was a little tricky but it looks worse now...

Thanks for posting pictures!

I was told that first obstacle on Kanes didn't exist until a year or two ago at EJS. You could squeeze a thinner vehicle through without climbing that boulder on your right side, but the JK's all had to climb up and over. Nice deep ditch to the right made for a fun off camber experience.

Yeah it gets dug out more and more every year. One of my favorites, but I do not like that first tippy section. Fortunately zero body damage today, but yesterday a couple of us, my self included, left paint on that rock.

Ran it last month and it was not as dug out as it has been this week. The ledge section near the end is getting dug out as well, changing year after year, but that section is a blast!

Good fun...Spider tomorrow, Cliff Hanger Sat. so stay tuned.........:drumsticks:

We had a minor recovery on Devil's Racetrack Wednesday. An FJ's rear end slid off the trail and was high centered on its fuel tank and rear diff. It was my first experience seeing an exhaust jack in action. I definitely want one now. Much safer than a high lift for this application. We raised the rear end and winched it sideways back on the trail as well as stacked rocks to get him up and over the big rock.

We used the Jack again up on Porcupine Rim to swap out a flat Friday. Once again I liked it there better than a high lift under the conditions.

It's a bit harder to post pictures from area BFE than a Hotel:D

First off great event even though the weather was horrible. The weather would have impacted us at Slickrock too. Nights went below freezing with rain and snow. Wednesday was record winds for the whole area. Although, the weather during the trail rides was perfect once they started

The location was great, only drawback being far from town. Some say that's a plus, but thats personal preference.

The Committee did an outstanding job with all the logistics for this new event pulling off in my opinion, one of the most successful Cruise Moab's ever even with the weather. Many people volunteered a stepped up to make this a successful event.

The bathrooms and showers were nicer than slick rock.

The food was awesome.

We have a lot of lessons learned to make the event even better for next year

Here are some pictures

thanks for the locale review, ken. pictures from both our club and mud have sucked quantity wise ;), but it looks like everyone made the best of thebad weather.

i've heard nothing but good about the food, is it something where if it went back to slickrock we'd look into catering there? or is bfe the new home of cruise moab?

Next years location is TBD. We are going to send a survey out to all the participants and get together to review the data and our own experience. It is a lot more work. Chris Davis, Hants, Greg, Caroline and the rest of the crew were working their butts off every day.

I think it likely we would return to area BFE.

If we do go back, we need to move this event to the 2nd week of our Permit vs the first. We moved to the first because of the colder weather cutting down the cotton.


One thing I forgot to mention is the caterer had breakfast burritos, coffee and other stuff and some lunch and dinner items as well starting Wednesday. We did have some problems with the bathrooms freezing in the early morning and not working, but there were plenty of porta potties around

What an awesome time!
Camping at BFE was cold at times, But nothing we couldn't handle and yes the caterers were great, It was nice to have a hot cup of coffee in the morning while teching in on Wed and Thurs, The raffle dinner was superb if you ask me :) Of course walking out of the raffle a winner certainly helped out :thumb:
Thanks again for all the great work!
FWIW, BFE is a great spot.

Thanks to Kurt, Paul and the rest of the Wasatch gang who put a lot of work into the overnighter. But most of all, thanks to Marco, Bill, Boyd, Alan, Bruce and Daniel for helping me get off the trail and home:bowdown::bowdown::thumb::cheers:. Didnt think I could top last years event, but this year is one for the books. Working through the 600 some photos that I took and will start posting when finished.

And on a side note, Jeremiah came up to me today mentioning something about a sas.

Again Thanks all!!!!!!

Vail Pass has been closed since 8:00 pm this eve due to snow and apparently an eastbound accident.

We are hanging in the Vail parking lot above the Botanical Gardens, est 30 more mins to reopen according to police.

Be safe, especially those who are towing. CO Trip cams show snowpack on the pass still.

CM was awesome :D

Bighead
05-03-2010, 04:36 AM
Hope you all made it through okay. We hit Vail Pass at about 2:00pm yesterday on the way home from CM and could not believe how bad it was. Hoosier Pass on CO-9 was even worse because the plows weren't even out and the visibility was horrible.

You all did an outstanding job on the event. My wife has already said she wants to go again next year.

wesintl
05-03-2010, 07:35 AM
vail was nasty when we went through and there was at least 1 accident on each side. Eisenhower was just wet by the time we went up. The east side was slow even though it not really snowing but it was packed ice. I saw on the news they closed it for the night. I didn't know when that was and hopfully everyone got though but i guess that wasn't the case. :(

treerootCO
05-03-2010, 07:53 AM
We made it back safe. The roads were perfect when we made it through. It was snowing pretty hard between copper and frisco and the 30 car pileup was minutes after we passed. Ham was awesome as always with up to the minute weather and road conditions. No wifi in camp so not much 'live from CM' this year. I broke a short side axle the first trip out so I relaxed most of the time. Axle from Randy, bearing from Proffits, AAA from Woody, and we were back up to lead Kane Creek Saturday. BFE was a consistent ten degrees colder than Moab so I agree the second week of the permit would be a good call.

Had a blast. It was worth the trip to watch Perry in the washes on Wipe Out hill trail. Can't wait for his pics. We tore down sat. after wipe out and headed East. When we came across Vail about 10:30 sat night I was feeling for the rumble strip the snow was so fast. Pretty spooky for a guy from 400feet. Think I might have had a hallucination or 2 somewhere in Kansas. Made it back in 20:15, 1296 miles from BFE to home.

JadeRunner
05-03-2010, 10:14 AM
My friend Dan and I had a great time. We left at 7:30 am Sunday and missed the real snow and stuff on the passes.

In 4 days of wheelin’ we ran – Hells Revenge (including the Gate) and Behind the Rocks, Cliff hanger and BFE night run, AREA BFE difficult and Metal Masher and the Golden Spike. So the JadeRunner is showing some serious trail scars but no breakage. I have a problem with my front ARB locker shooting fluid out the breather. The front locker was sure nice to have when it worked.

Area BFE was great. I enjoyed wheelln’ the BFE trails. Especially, when you can go all over following various two tracks. But, those trails can beat your rig up with all the loose rocks. It made me want to get back to the Utah slickrock trails that make Moab so unique.

Can't see the vids from work, but look forward to seeing it tonight. Brian thanks for the great documentation!

I'm always doing Wipeout Hill like that from now on.. I spotted the SWB line and the top of the LWB line, Neil did a great job on spotting the lower section of the LWB line, this is illustrated very well by that first pic of Red Chili above. We had 2 trucks at a time on that obstacle, I think we got all 18 down in about 25 minutes, once the mad house of the Jeeps, other vehicles, ATV's, motorcycles, and golf carts subsided.. :rolleyes:

Can't wait to see the rest of the pics (Perry's and everyone else's).

The one thing we felt could seriously damage the BFE event was the weather, and I'll be damned if that wasn't the coldest, wettest, windiest, and snowiest Moab I've ever seen that time of year. But despite the weather, I didn't talk to one person that wasn't smiling and having a blast the whole time.

Wow. this was my first CM. I'm blown away with this incredible event. I took about 600 pics and going through them now. Here's one of my favorites from the lunch spot on Wipeout Hill.

"hmmmmm....if stare at this hard enough, maybe it'll fly into my mouth"

That's a funny pic Shawn :lmao:

What did you drive out there? The 60 or the 40?

Cool shot. I thought you didn't like tippy??!?
:lmao:
Quite the feat with them darn axles.

I don't. At all. It's why I have them darn axles. :D As I've been known to tell my kid, "when you screw up, you suffer". Actually, this was kind of a freebie, since I'm resting on the slider. Just to salvage some bit of pride here, I was able to back out of this and move my right a bit to get up this thing. On the downside, this was a BYPASS (to Rock Pile).

...says the guy who didn't pull cable all day :) rain, snow, it didn't matter.

great running all three days with you!

You, too, man!! I really appreciated your's and Brook's help. It took me a couple of days to get my wheelin' legs under me. :D

I took the 60 with a fresh rebuild. :D the only thing we didn't touch was the Power steering....which was fine until after E. Hill. oh well. 180k miles, not so bad.

Meade (sp.?) is such a good dog he just stared, never tried to snatch it.

Here are a few pics from others I was with. I didn't take may pictures or video this year.

1. Hells gate. The first place I like go the first morning to get warmed up on the slick rock.
2. Cliff Hanger. No that chick isn't in the drivers seat in the Canadian diesel.
3. Cliff Hanger lunch spot.
4. 40 on it's side on Green Day in Area BFE. The buggy guys were going to spot me through this obstacle. I was going to do it but decided to find my own by-pass after seeing the 40 struggle so much. I had my hands full with the by-pass believe me. The buggy guys were way cool dudes by the way.
5. Front Skid plate. I had to take this on and off a bit to keep my diff fluid topped off due to my ARB locker issues. I hate having to re-form this every time to just get it back on.

My old Budbuilts bent up like that, too. If you get them make sure to ask Bud to make them from 3/16" material instead of 0.120". Turns out the weight increase is worth it to offset the less trailside de-denting you have to do. I sold the Budbuilt cross member and all my skid plates, so I probably should think about doing something, too.

Yes Dee was in the truck and was ok.

All things considered, it was a great day for those that continued on with us. We had a nice safe run, enjoyed a good hike on the Joint Trail and got back in time for the tail end of the wings and vendor night activities.

Hey Scott,

Thanks for the compliments in your pics of the crew on the BFE trails. I still think you could have walked that line. You have the gears and the width. But..........if you didn't...............body damage for sure and your rig is far to sweet to be flopping it. It was a pleasure to wheel with you. I intend to join the club and that should ensure that we wheel together again.

In answer to your questions.
1, The large lineup looks to be for the "Behind the rocks" trail.

2, The trail with the fence is "Pritchett Canyon" also in those pics is me doing my best to have Brandon run me over! Actually he was stopped at that point. As you know..............I've got that 97 runner that was rolled. You could get out the sawsall and build yourself a Pritchett Canyon ready rig!

A couple of videos I got of the climb out of Bobby's Hole. This is the southbound road out of Canyonlands-Needles (after coming up and over E Hill), and you have to make this climb to cross over into Ruin Park and eventually Beef Basin. Not too tough on a sunny, dry day, but you can imagine what this might be like if it was wet or muddy. The road was very steep, and the rocks loose and slippery.

My uncle did the same thing a while back but it was his driver front. Had a bad feeling about his front hub rebuild so he did not do the trails that day and started to head home and about 20 min out of Moab the front came apart and the tire is still missing i think. Ground the rotors and all down to the stub. ewwwwwww
