After our trip we all said a Rubicon on 35's would go pretty much anywhere out there. Most of the runs are more tame and scenic than hardcore with a few really tough obstacles thrown in for fun.

Are you going to run Pritchet Canyon? You can't do it all but of the stuff we did, that was the most challenging.

Too bad. I think Pritchett canyon was by far the best trail there.

X2 - If/When I go back that will be top on the list to do again. All the really hard sections have bypasses/winching points so smaller rigs can do the run. Awesome scenary and lots of spots to play.

We have my explorer on 33's and a l/s rear and Alboys TJ on 31s open/open.

We've done most of hells revenge including mickeys hot tub (winched out, on;y time the winchs have been used and no tugs or straps been pulled out.), fins and things, kane creek, long canyon, bull canyon, gemini bridges, top of the world, dome platuea.

Tomorrow was suppose to be black bear pass, but it was closed for the season on the 25th and we didn't know it. So not sure whats on tap for tomorrow now that we are staying in Moab another day. Thinking maybe golden spike and posion spyder.
