My LJ was around ~4,700 pounds loaded and ready to wheel.  This was with steel front and rear bumpers and carrying a spare tire, I've since gone to aluminum bumpers and stopped carrying a spare (37" spare tire came in at 100 pounds.)  The shop here in Montrose is swapping out our rear Dana 44 for a Currie Rockjock 60 so that might offset any weight savings from the aluminum  :P.

If you're at Rock Worx in Gunnison, Craig & co will take very good care of you!

One more wheeling trip to Utah was going to completely destroy my Dana 44, OEM control arm brackets, etc. Can't wait to try it out!

This is my 2001 Jeep Wrangler.  I added some new shoes since this pic, can't wait to see how well they do.

Welcome aboard!

Nice pic's.  :Been to 7 Mile Rim too.
7 Mile Rim is one of my favorite trails in Moab, I've led that trail for the last three or four years. This year I had 15 with me, it was a bit of a challenge to keep everybody together. We always love the fun extra at the end - Wipeout Hill.

The "new" 9 months old Willys just washed and after our first trek through some wet and snowy Bodie CA mud.

It's the dirt under my tires! And it's the mud that's probably forever more caked under the chassis. :-\

Sorry Gary. I thought you meant where's the Mojave Road in my pictures. Duh! It runs between Laughlin, NV and Barstow, CA. Takes about three days to drive. Very isolated in several places, but not a difficult run. Here's a link to a video of our trip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3e3iN7F31c&sns=em

Saw it Kev.  Didn't see the Tour.  Were you checking it out for a future trip?  Thought I heard one comment about the ability of a motorhome to get through.   ;)

No way RVs like yours and ours could make the trip Gary. I've seen some videos of some pickups with cab-over campers making the trip, and other vehicles towing small sport trailers, but no one with rigs like ours. Most, including us, tent camp. (I still don't mind doing that occasionally) The comment made was in jest.

Ah, you have those fancy pants retractable steps  :D. A guy I wheel with has those electric steps on his JKUR and I was with him when he bashed one in the open position.

Yep... They're called Step Sliders, and I have to admit that they're pretty handy - pretty pricey too. Fortunately, they were on the Jeep when we bought it. Cyndi fell in love with them when we were Jeep-shopping, and they really do make getting in and out of a lifted Jeep a lot easier.

They're turned off in that picture, because we were unloading things at our campsite, and I didn't want them going up and down as the doors were repeatedly opened and closed. I can sure see how it would be very easy to forget to turn them back on. I think a "best practice" would be to only turn them off in the up-position. I've also considered designing some kind of alarm that would sound whenever they were deployed with the key in the Run position.

We were wheeling a couple weeks ago in the Anza Borrego desert, and I got suckered into going on a trail called Cat Blaster. It's a serious "no-turning-back" one-way trail with very tight side-dragging turns, with rounded and sharp-edged rocks, many of which were as tall as our tires. In that case, I turned the step sliders off in the up-position. They use door-magnets to determine when to open and close, and I didn't want them accidentally deploying with all the frame twisting that was going on. The good news is, they proved to be excellent rock sliders, and they did a great job of protecting the Jeep.

Some really nice setups on here. Glad to see people getting out in their 4x4's.

I assumed some ROF members were on here....Yep!

1999 Toyota Land Cruiser, with factory center and rear diff locks, Bump It Offroad front bumper with 12k winch, Cooper Discoverer RTX tires. It doesn't see much exciting terrain, in Florida it's pretty much easy trails, deep sand, or lots of mud/water, and I got tired of the mud stuff a long time ago. I did get a chance to do some "real" offroading last Thanksgiving on the Tray Mountain Trail in north Georgia, that was a whole lot of fun.
