Thanks man, it was sweet rolling 8 hours out and 7 hours back listening to the rattle of the 2f valve train... with 100 miles of dirt in between, I couldn't be happier.

Funny thing was, nearly every group of riders that past me yelled out "nice 40!" or "sweet FJ!" I was impressed with the MB community and their ability to know it wasn't a jeep.

Didn't want to burn the gas to bring out a fancy tent

I wanted to make sure of the terrain before getting into a tight spot with the trailer. I would tow it if I run it again... which I hope to do!

White Rim is definitely trailer compatible.

Looks awesome! Where is it, how do you get there & where does it go? Are there maps you can buy for the trails & such?
Thanks,
Abe

Its a loop around the Island in the Sky District of Canyonlands National Park.

Pick up a topo of the park. Many guide books cover it as well. Not a very challenging trail. Just a 100 mile loop of solitude and scenery. Its one of my favorites personally.
