your sounding a little cocky there "rezarf" about the trail readiness of others' rigs. seams to me I remember you showing up with the worst set of baldass tires I've ever seen on a trail.

Please keep it civilized. Drew always owns his own $#!+ and he is only reiterating what is established club etiquette, and in the case of trail readiness, rules. He's not pointing fingers at any individual. Cheers man!

On another note, pictures from the 40's Only are always some of my favorites. So iconic! Almost makes me want one. It's cool to see so many out doing what they were designed to do.

Ageed, last year I was the gunner. We had 5 vehicles that couldn't make it all the way and I spent a lot of time in the back helping. By the time the back end got to the lake, the rest were done with lunch and ready to roll.

I'm seriously thinking of taking my rusted, dented 40 back to Moab this year. Yeah, the 60 has power steering and A/C, and is quiet to where I can actually talk on the phone while on the highway, but I can beat the crap outta that 40 on the rocks and not care LOL. Oh and BTW, she runs and drive GREAT!

Sorry boss, not me. I have had a nice set of MT tires on my rig in some form or another since I have owned it... even a set of Thornbirds!

Not sure who you've got me confused with but it ain't me.

Now, I do think you are talking about Keith and his racing slicks this last trip... and he ran it without issues. He even went out and bought some new BFG's after the run IIRC. But heck, I forgot my HAM charging cable that day and only had my CB but Keith bailed me out with a spare HAM so I could keep up with the others. That is 100% on me.

Either way, I am not trying to bust anyone balls, I am just stating that this is a popular run, and I don't like to limit the size since it is sooooo cool to see that many 40's on any trail. However, as the trail leader last year and with a great experienced wheeler like Romer as gunner, we couldn't get the 15-ish 40s to the Lake without a good deal of issues that certainly could have been avoided by one of two things... 1) A mechanically sound maintained FJ40 and 2) A CB radio as part of the group took a wrong turn when the group inevitably got split up. (Or even follow the rule of keep the guy behind you in sight).

I have had my 40 break down once on a trail in Moab, and that certainly happens, I have had it break down several times around town too (I daily drove mine for 15 years). However, all I am saying is folks should get out there, enjoy their 40 throughout the summer, know the gremlins and get after them. Then it is more likely to see something surface either on a lazy weekend wheeling trip with a buddy or two or around town. We can and should expect taking a group of 35-50 year old rigs out can bring unknown issues to the surface, and that is certainly part of any run. However, I think there is a certain amount of respect and etiquette concerning others time to not knowingly bring a rig to ANY trail for a group run and hope others can help you out or wait around for a fix of something someone knew might go wrong.

It's not a BIG deal, just a courtesy and overall a part of good wheelin' etiquette.

As to Jeff, Sunday is still a sacred day for some. As a preacher it is tougher to get away on a Sunday, however, if you want to lead the run this year, I'll get in line and make it if I can. If I run it, I'll likely need to keep it on a Saturday bud.

I'm not a preacher but prefer Saturday as well as that is typically football season and that can be sacred for others Sorry Jeff
