Gold Bar Rim, Golden Spike and Poison Spider

Made it through all 3 today. All alone, no one on the trails at all! Loved it, it took about 7 hours. I thought the Range Rover was going to fall in the Golden Crack never to return. Talk about some pucker factor. I could barely take a poop when i got back. I have a bunch of video, but its going to take me some time to get it up.

Carnage Report:

*Rear mufflers have been reshaped and have some new dents.
*Rear bumper was scratched up really well.
*Brush guard has been bent a bit
* front bumper is now cracked and bend on the passenger side like the grill guard.
*ripped a line off the windshield washer reservoir and spilled piping hot windshield fluid all over the place. I didn't know the windshield washer fluid was heated like a Mercedes. SWEET!!
*Popped the front passenger side spring out after going over the Golden Crack

Ran with 245/75/16" tires. Load range E aired down to 18 LBS. WORKED GREAT!

Saw one Broken down POS Jeep at the beginning of the waterfall on Poison Spider, stupid jeeps.

Started on Gemini Bridges to Gold Bar, to Golden Spike to Poison Spider Masa

Gooney Bird Rock



Trail Head



Giant Ledge



Start of Golden Spike

Front Spring popped out. Finally had to use that stock hydraulic bottle jack in the back.

No. Just scratched the bumpers.

The brakes were acting up there. I had held them really hard and long. The booster let loose for a brief second. Scared the crap out of me. The tail pipes have been reshaped as well

Nice vids. Makes me want to go back there even more. A lot of those obstacles are even more fun to go UP.

Why you should never use crap parts store stuff. they are about half way worn out. i'm replacing them soon. They came on it when I bought it last year. OEM is so much nicer on the ears. I was really tired of the noise by the end of the day.

It's fun to run Moab trails 'backwards'. You get a whole new perspective
