The trail choices are getting very interesting.  :thumbsup:  Everyone on the same radio frequency will be much better than the crazy relay system of past years. Maybe Randy can bring his handheld CB for a spotter. If I end up not going, I can loan my trails SD card if someone has a Garmin. It works great as long as you run it directly from the card as "extras".

I would think we'd run the same typical trails and a lot of the others mentioned would be more on the bonus side.  I'm not trying to break shit.

I've got a 2ft. fire stick if Sean wants it. It could be mounted maybe somewhere on the upper cage for range. I've got an older Garmin…from the mid 2000's... I 'think' it would work.

My Garmin is a Nuvi 50 for vehicle use. I will likely be going on this trip unless gas is over $4/gallon.
The RV burns about 100 gallons each way.  :ballchain:

Thanks Randy. I have a Fire Stick at home and the cable. Just need to pick up the unit from Tim and make a mount. Thinking it's going to be attached to the swing down spare tire rack.

Well... I guess I've got about 4 months to put some miles on the Jeep. Just had to shell out some coin for a complete re-gear job in the rear!  :shaking:

Driving on the street a while back and heard a 'pop' going around a corner. Pulled the cover and found about 7 broken ring teeth!  :thumbsdown: Further inspection revealed a loose hand tight pinion nut!  :pissed:
Soooo, now I need to break the new gears in before the trip. Also found a starting to leak axle seal, so replaced that too.

Anywho…  just venting a bit. So now that I'm officially broke and all. I was hoping some of you really nice guys will buy my beer at the Moab brewery!  :cheers: :cheers2: :2thumbsup: :biggrin:

Well Sean, if you feel bad about just buying one round... we understand. We'll let you buy more.  :thumbsup:

Oh and as you all know... no beer over 3.2 in Utah. So we bring our own 'good stuff'. But just beware... we do not want anyone to bring any Corona over. Not with all that virus scare stuff going on now.  :eek:

At least you don't have to wait to go snow wheeling...   :biggrin:

Jeep looking good. Nice stance. Still thinking about pulling the top this time around... at least I wont' scratch it on Pickle.   :rofl:

On a different note; this afternoon I installed a set of Chinese nock off LED headlights. Dang! What a difference they make. :eek:
 I was so getting tired of those crappy OEM yellow pos's. Me thinks we can do some night wheeling now in Moab!  :biggrin:
Jury still out on the long run, but so far I really like them. I picked a set that had the most sales and highest star rating for under a C note. So far so good. Totally plug and play. Me likes.  :2thumbsup:
