    well I made it home not quite in one piece but suddenly I feel the need to get an onboard welder /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Moab is gonna rock with fullsizes but if I go up with you guys again its not possible that I will leave my jeep at home /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    the wheeling there is incredible I managed to rip the rear trac bar off the axle then the single front upper control arm mount, also pulled rocker away from the body just to top it all off with a technical roll (should have rolled but rocks got in the way)

    what a blast I think I am gonna try to make it for the blazer bash up there

    Keith....

    I looked briefly at the Moab pics.... Looks like the "Pickle" is off limits to the Green Monster, but what about Lower Helldorado??!

    What was the toughest run you did?

    So, compare both trails (helldorado/ pritchett) to something we know local, if possible. I'm curious as to what to be prepared for, when I finally get my lazy ars to Moab /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    helldorarado is like armageddon without the squeeze

    pritchett is length of crown king with easy flat spots and optional fun spots all the trails up there have pretty good size ledges rocker knocker will get your attention fast

    easiest way to describe pritchett is a super tuff crown king with boulders and ledges big ones /forums/images/icons/smile.gif oh yea throw some off camber ledges in there to fred you'll love this /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    the pictures probably show the fun spots on the trail better than I can explain them

    I did Pritchett several years ago with lockers and 31's... We did "Behind the Rocks" too.

    Keith... When you say Pritchett is long, you must be combining these 2 trails. I remember Pritchett being pretty short, and then Behind the rocks being so long I thought we were gonna have to sleep out there! Did you pass White Knuckle Hill? That was on Behind the Rocks....

    But what about "Pickle"...?? No way it'll fit?!?

    your right marv it was combination of the 2 behind the rocks is a long trail we actually winched over white knuckle hill

    pickle you may fit but I dunno how crazy you want to get off camber we had one guy in the group go to the left and it worked for him
