I was going to post my pictures last night but Comcast was so nice and decided to work on the cable box outside our yard. No Internet access till later today at home.
Owie! Unfortunely, there is no such thing as a "nice" bump on 80 sheet metal! That will prolly cost more than everything else combined! Sorry to hear that man! Wouldn't it be so handy to get a time rewind button that you could use maybe one or twice a year that would just back up time say maybe 10 minutes?

UB If you ever come across one of those let me know I will buy it. It was an expensive trip for me with the "little" bump and my own little bump in our cul de sac.

All in all I would go again in a minute, I just wouldn't back up...........Beeeeeep Beeeeeep Beeeeeep Tom Over and out!

Thanks all for posting these pics - I am jonesing for Moab bad!!!

A question for you all who were just out there:

I will be wheeling Pig this year, no lift, on 31's. The body is very nice as Pigs go, and I want to keep rockers and quarters intact.

Are Wipe Out Hill and Porcopine Rim wise choices for this rig? DOes Wipe Out have a bypass for the actual obstacle?

Wipeout Hill does not have a bypass.

Also as I posted in the other thread, you'll have no problem running Wipeout in a stockish wagon. It's steeeeeep, but the direct line would be hard to damage your rig on. It's the short wheelbase rigs that you would risk going over the handlebars on.

I'm just worried about dragging quarter panels on the direct line. I am wondering about the line off to the left (when looking down hill) as I think it less drop-off.

Is Wipe Out Hill part of another trail? I was trying to look it up in the Wells book and it is not listed as a stand alone trail...
