Looks like the family and I are going to make a Moab run next week. Not planning on doing anything too crazy, likely just Top Of The World, Gemini Bridges and maybe Chicken Corners.

Despite living in Utah my whole life, this will only be my second stay in Moab. The wife and I did Gemini last year when we went, but I think that TOTW and CC shouldn't be anything the wife's WJ can't handle rolling with a 3" lift and 265/75/16's.

RARE,, 91 Jeep Comanche 4x4 4.0 5 speed !! ! !! - $2700

Great running pickup truck that smogs with no problems, 4x4 works with no issues the motor pulls good and the transmission is an AX-15 has no shifting problems and had a recent LUK clutch job. Tires are mud terrains with plenty of tread. the interior was always kept clean and it pretty flawless. The truck has see a pretty easy life was never used as a heavy work truck or was used for hauling nor major wheeling. I hate to see it go its been good to me and very hard to find but i have other priorities with the money i can get. I'm not one to barter much so 2700 firm and no trades call or txt

Damon came by to help me put on my Slee bumper so I could try it out at Hidden Falls this weekend. The install went smooth except a plate that was welded from the crossmember to the hitch had to be removed.











Looks soooooo much better now. My daughter absolutely LOVES climbing on the ladder to get on the rack which is pretty much the only reason I bought it.

It was supposed to be sunny and low 90s in Marble Falls on Sunday but we woke up to cool, wet weather. Wasn't looking forward to driving on sloppy trails. It rained for a good portion of the day but it was so light that it didn't do much and by the afternoon it was still cloudy but warm and no longer raining. Sadly I wasn't able to get too many photos because of the rain. But I did get a few poser shots!





















Many of the trails I remember going on last time are in much worse shape now. My old 4Runner would have a hard time on a few of them now because the ledges are much bigger. I was going pretty easy because I still don't have sliders but I never did hit on the running boards. Only hit something once and it was the frame mount for the passenger lower link. Not bad for this land yacht with such a low belly. Even though the front of it doesn't flex very much it's still a ton more than the 4Runner had and it made this trip much more enjoyable. Many of the trails had spots where the 4Runner was extremely tippy and had a ton of pucker factor but the Land Cruiser handled them all with ease and we never felt like it was going to go on its side.
Hidden Falls is in the Texas Hill Country and the 5.29s made the trip to the park much easier. The ARB lockers did great as well, this thing is like a damn goat and climbed up and over everything with ease!

Sadly the park still sucks as far as trail markings go. The map doesn't even list a lot of the trails and that makes it pretty much useless. Several times we had to turn around because we ended up on a motorcycle or 4 wheeler only trail. Even the ones that are marked aren't done very well. You'll be going down a trail and then there will be several different ways you can go and none of them are marked so you have no idea if you're still on the same trail.

It was still a lot of fun but I probably won't be going back very much unless there is an event.

Sweet! Hidden Falls is my favorite OHV park.

I haven't posted in a while, but I've been busy! WJ's coming along. This is actually from HF last month:


Sliders really got tested out that day... Needs more lift, especially since I put the bumpers on. I'm going to order the Clayton 6" long arm kit sometime in the next week or two...
Unfortunately my phone was dead and refusing to charge out there, so I didn't get any good pictures, but here are some recent additions:

Gonna get the 4Runner out on the trail for the first time tomorrow and test out the armor I added. Gonna go up to Camp Dick and see what's open and how much damage the floods did.

That part of the trail has gotten sooooo bad in the past few years. This is that same part but back in 2012.






I didn't even want to try it with my Land Cruiser since I still don't have sliders yet. There are several places I noticed throughout the day that have gotten pretty bad.

That is such a nice looking Grand Cherokee! Always have liked those.

I know this is an odd request for this thread, but can somebody recommend me some good waterproof connectors for my jetski? Just two two-wire connectors is all I need. Must be completely waterproof.

I remember reading about somebody here doing some serious electrical work.

Didn't get any real action shots, but I'm glad I've got the full skids and sliders. Came down hard on a couple of rocks. The drive up there was way harder though, a bunch of roads closed due to flood damage and the ones that were open had huge sections missing.

I believe it's Paranoid and his old Land Cruiser you're thinking of.
