After 10 weeks, 13 National Parks & Monuments, 11,000 miles (1/2 towed behind our Motorhome) we culminated our epic retirement trip in Moab and Ouray!
The turbo 4 loves 12k+ feet and never skipped a beat! (21k miles in 12 months)

Having a stock Rubicon, I did many go arounds and did not officially complet it.
No pics because I was by myself. (Another reason for my caution...

Heck I would take a picture of that Jeep even half way up the gate keeper on Pritchett. It’s a very hard trail and one I am doing next week in a significantly modified Jeep; and even then it will be challenging. There is not a chance in hell a stock JL could do that trail, not one chance. Talks of bypasses, hmmmm they don’t really have them on that trail, it’s gotten so bad the last few years it’s almost a buggy only trail. You either did it or did not. I’m sure you pulled up to the trailhead checked in and then checked out.

You know I have to Call BS here. The official Guide to Moab, UT Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails, Third edition by Charles A Wells. Rates Pritchett Canyon as the third toughest and most difficult trail in Moab. I Quote "Extremely Difficult. For Big, Customized, Hard-core rigs only". according to Wells, you don't take stock vehicles on Pritchet Canyon, Rusty Nail or Area BFE. The local Outfitters like Outlaw 4x4 would advise against a stock Rubicon, Hell they told me I was highly likely to get trail damage on Poison spider with my stock Rubicon. There are also a few other trail badges that you have, that would definitely result in trail damage. Like RPloaded said "I’m sure you pulled up to the trailhead checked in and then checked out." Its guys like you that ruin the integrity of the BOH program (I'm Just Sayin, Its my opinion)
