    Glad you’re ok Mojo. Nice looking JL. I am really digging that color!

    Guys thanks for the info. Any concern regarding snow or potentially ice on the trails with any of those y’all have listed. This Texas boy isn’t used to that fluffy white stuff.

    @DanW, Thanks for the clarifier, I plan on staying stock with my JLR but have heard stories about the bowed springs with the Mopar lift. Sounds like it’s within specs and normal.

    Early on in the production they did have a problem with bowing that was well documented. They redesigned the perch mounts and everything is good now!

    Chicken Corner and Fins and Things last Sunday. Trails were clear of snow then but Moab got slammed with several inches of snow on Monday. Good times for my first Moab trip in a Jeep!3BB83FE0-3D96-49E1-9D93-82E2F2CFD35A.jpeg D3DAE0DF-7CFC-4606-9287-8087AD17EFD4.jpeg 57E830BB-42B2-4652-AF7D-36E99F7E6789.jpeg

    Are you referring to the Stickman who does a lot of mountain bike photography?

    I'm referring to one on a certain black rifle forum. Turns out it wasn't him. The one I'm wondering about could be the same as the mountain bike guy, though.

    Greetings my fellow ATX'er, nice pics! As I wait for my Jeep, I'm planning a trip to Moab after Easter, so I am reading as much as I can to figure out what I can take on with my (forthcoming) shiny new stock Rubi as a Jeep noob. I've rented Jeeps a bunch of times over the years for backcountry access, but no rock crawling. I see sites like jeeptheusa.com rate Chicken as a 2, Fins and Things a 3. Are they both something I should considering doing? We'll be solo, but I'm guessing these tracks get plenty of traffic in case I need help. I won't be looking to push myself or my rig too far given my noob status, but I definitely want to do some exploring.

    Thanks, Brett, I look forward to reading about your trip and the safari. Don't forget to snap and post some pics! I'm going after Easter to avoid some of the crowds, but the safari looks amazing. I hope to have 2 or 3 days there to explore.

    Will do. Were leaving the north houston area on the 12th and coming home on the 21st. Going to be in moab from monday and leaving sat. Were getting excited. Doing a vrbo, might be worth it to check them out now as they fill up quick especially during ejs. After that, it should mellow out id hope
