A couple of KY boys are coming out to Moab about the 16th of September for about 5 days of riding. I was wondering if someone could rattle off GPS cordinates of all the good stuff (we like it tough) so that I could preprogram the Garmin GPS12. I really appreciate it.

By the way, anyone want to ride during those 5 to 7 days with a couple of ******** who think highly of the long skinny peddle? I broke mine a couple of weeks ago and had to weld it back together with reinforcements! <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0"> Watch for a yellow scout on 60/70 and 40's and a WIDE red CJ7 with 60/70, quarter eliptic rear and 40's.

Thanks
Todd

when you get to moab go to the city market (its right on the main drag) find the book Guide to Moab,UT 4-wheel drive trails and backroads.it is the book to most all of the trails there it has gps cordinates and good directions.with that and a local map you should find enough to scatter lots of stuff.I would sugest the Moab rim cliffhanger and the golden spike as well as hells revenge for the first timers they are 4+ and are good trails we do them alot.if you desire tougher then that go to the 4wd drive shop and get directions to the rusty nail and helldorado lower helldoado is good for fairly well set up vehicles and upoper is pure crazy boulder hell and requires gobs of rig and skill by the way the end is a 10 verticle waterfall so you need a winch if you make it all the way back there(about 200 yards)we did that trail at EJS w/ a couple other well set up jeeps a rock buggy and a sniper it took around 6-7 hours with all but two rigs suffering major breakage,one roll over(by the sniper) and several minor problems
good luck and have fun theres nothin like it on earth.BTW if you get into U.helldorado and make it pasrt the first series of rocks there is an escape route to the right if you need to get off the trail.

<IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">

well I think it would be just as easy if you just go down hte trail and BAM the is the obstacle!!

because its hard on a gps cause the trails are som windy

so when your on the spike r=the obstacles on rusty nail are close than doouble whammy etc..


But here is a site that oh shit I can't find it but ther is a guy ( <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0"> ) here named Dan Mick and he has a jeep tour company I think he has gpsed allmost all of everything in moab so check around!

Try moabutah.com or search jeep tours moab ut or something

But when are you guys coming down???

Have you seen helldorado or proving grounds???

Thanks for the info! We plan to be there September 16. We figure 1500 miles = 2 days drive time each way. We are bringing our women with us and hope that does not turn out to be the limiting factor on where we go. Trying to round up spare parts and just finished last night groving the front 40's!

Driveshafts
U-joints
Front axle shafts
Yokes
Bondo (just kidding!!!!!!!!!)

Think that we need more than one Dana 70 stub shaft for the front (between the two of us)? Surely we do not need spare rear 70 shafts?
