Mine is definitely not a daily driver. I do tow it to Moab, and depending on the trail, I will tow if necessary, but highly unlikely for the three trails for which I'll be running (Spike / Moab Rim /...

Paul,

I guess I did read that as being personal, but now that I've re-read it, I agree that it would be a good way to add "ability to repair" to the tech inspection!

I feel that the more time one...

Paul,
I'd be happy to let you check out my repair kit and tools.

Agreed, the (42") spare takes up way too much room and/or blocks visibility. My other issue with it, is the weight distribution when mounted off the back. All of this combined with the virtually...

So it looks like I'll be joining you on Thursday, for a long day on the Spike... I promise, none of this: This was day #4 after finishing the build, at Rangely, during last year's Rock Junction.

My last Cruise Moab was 2005, and I know it was a firm requirement to have a spare tire at that time. I typically load my spare on my trailer, but don't carry it on the trail. I do have an extensive...

First Cruise Moab since 2005, but I've s-l-o-w-l-y, completely rebuilt my 40 over the 10 years following my last appearance. I have a dozen wheeling days on the rig, with most of the bugs worked out,...
