The trails that fill up the quickest are in the middle difficulty: Hells Revenge, Golden Spike, Cliff Hanger, Elephant Hill, etc.

The easiest trails usually have some room, although our two new easy trails will probably fill up just because they are new.

Usually the hardest trails -- Pritchett and Behind The Rocks -- don't fill up. People worry about body damage and mechanical breakage on these trails, which is a very real concern.

Just out of curiosity how does Moab Rim normally do?

The last time I ran Pritchett we had an FJ with us. I don't remember his exact set-up but I'll see if I can dig up the pictures.

I did Prichett a couple of years ago in the rain. I have 35's and double lockers. I would have never made it with out the great spoting provided. It was great fun. The rain fueled some great waterfalls. -Larry

Glad to hear that, as our rigs are very close. I dont have the extra go juice under the hood, and I have 34/10.5 LTB swamperz. And really, with the tummy tuck, dont we really run 5-6"taller tires anyway? : )


Dont know that 1 inch of tire will make or break me but I guess rulz is rulz,
What do the CM people say?

I had the LTB's and mine were closer to 33" than 34" The SSR's are a full 35" When I ran Pritchett I didn't have the "tummy tuck" yet. Maybe I will see you at CM.

Look forward to it. I'm hard to miss, as you don't see many wheelchair users in this game.

If I get finished in time, might have to bring the fresh built 4runner, no tire size issues involved. Otherwise a 07 SF FJC, floriduh tag
