So it looks like I'll be joining you on Thursday, for a long day on the Spike... I promise, none of this: This was day #4 after finishing the build, at Rangely, during last year's Rock Junction.

Why don't you carry your spare tire with you?

I haven't finished that portion of my cage yet...may not either. 40" tires take up a lot of room

I run 42's so for a spare I carry a skinny 38 bogger. I've pulled it out once in 10 years so it'll likely get removed in favor of a cooler rack. I have a very nice patch and plug kit that does the trick 99% of the time.

I understand the requirements but if you don't want to run a trail with me because of no spare then I'm ok with that

Agreed, the (42") spare takes up way too much room and/or blocks visibility. My other issue with it, is the weight distribution when mounted off the back. All of this combined with the virtually non-existent need, means that mine stays on the trailer. If I REALLY need it, it is a matching tire and wheel, so I can keep wheeling for the rest of the week.

Yeah, if you're running bias ply tires, leaving a spare on the trailer is no big deal. Radials are different, since they are a little more... tender.

That said, I usually carry one on long trails like Spike, even though I have bias ply Pitbulls. I'm just a belt and suspenders kind of guy...

I build a lot of Toyota based rigs, and a common wheel bolt pattern was important to me, so my Dana 60's are 6 on 5.5, I am also a member of Moab Friends For Wheeling, so I have a lot of local friends, in case I need serious assistance.
I understand that making exceptions can be a slippery slope, I'm just trying to reassure you that I have considerable experience with this issue, and hope that we can come to a mutual agreement that will satisfy all involved.
Agreed about the slippery slope, but I like your club's revision to say "ability to repair". Most of these requirements were made (obviously) at some point in the past where people who had experienced preventable problems came up with rules to try to prevent them. I'm totally on board with making an exception, but I haven't seen where Art (in charge of safety inspections) has seen this. I'll see about pinging him direct via email. I know all of us committee members are up to our eyeballs in a million things related to Cruise Moab at this time of year and it is difficult to find the bandwidth to get to everything in a timely manner.
