Thanks for the tip, that is a great idea. That will save me $17 on a hitch and have one less thing to get caught up on. I moved the rear OEM loops to the front the other day. Yes, they do look like they will make good rock feelers or ledge/curb finders.

No spare tire (don't want to start a debate with the 40" tire crowd, this is for the guy with 33's) Have a good spare tire mounted to your truck and the tools to change it. Many newer trucks have keys to lower the spare or special anti theft lugnuts.


If you have difficulties like, "sometimes it overheats" or "it makes a clicking sound when I turn left" please resolve these issues prior to your arrival in Moab. Solving problems wednesday night at camp or on trail with 20 rigs waiting is not the appropriate place.
Does that mean the guys with larger tires don't need spares? I am at 39.5 right now and have a spare...............but do I need to bring it? I think I will anyhow..........but I just wanted to know the rules. Thanks.

Yes, bring your spare.

If you're a hard core buggy guy and you're going to be running BFE trails exclusively then I assume you will be trailering your rig out there. If so then it's your call on whether you actually have a spare on board the rig or just on the trailer. I'm assuming you either have a tire repair kit, fixaflat or are willing to drive yourself out of a trail on a flat tire.

If you are running any of the non-BFE trails and you plan on driving to them, then you need to have a spare that meets the minimums. I know all the arguements about the durability of the larger tires and the ability to drive out on a flat if needed. I run 42's and have a 37" spare on the rig and a full size spare on the trailer.

This rule is more about courtesy to the other 19 rigs on your trail so you can change a flat and keep up with the group if required.

I was planning on running the spare anyhow. I was curious about the rule. I love to comply especially if it is for the good of the group. Can't wait and I thank you for your efforts!!
