Headed down to CA and met up with some friends, and then convoyed to Moab for a week, then came straight back to WA. 2700ish tow miles with only marginal issues, ended up with 6000+ pics and videos from the group over 6 days. They're all dumped together at the moment so once I sort through them I'll add a few more.

TJ had zero issues, RV had a few water leaks solved by tightening hose clamps and sprang a trans leak at the input shaft late in the trip home-attempting lucas fix before I yard the trans since its a fairly minor leak.

My one regret is not doing Hell's Gate-we did Hell's Revenge the first day and it wasn't until later that I realized just how STICKY that rock is... totally new wheeling experience!

Number one "mod" for the trip was by far a thumb throttle on the shifter and a fresh clutch job, greatly decreased my desire for an auto swap.

Not a super crazy obstacle, but climbing out of Kane creek I fought this ledge and refused to take the bypass until success-it felt good... probably also the nearest we came to a side flop the whole trip.

and of course what I consider the ultimate poser shot location:

Drug my rear bumper all over the place, Moab definitely left its mark on my TJ

We watched a guy from our group in a 4 door waggy on 40's nearly go over backwards twice... If someone had sneezed they would have gone... he slipped off the vee because of a bad line- and I wussed out, haha

Haha, fair enough. I've only ever ridden through it, never driven. Hoping to change that someday soon.
