I had a friend help me put up some full size hemlock 2x8x12,hot off the sawmill. I did not see him for a month after that. :D  Than when he did come back we put up the rest of them,but they have been drying for a month. He's my friend again. :D Much lighter. He was surprised and happy.

Hi Tacks Y.   This one's a 2016 Rubicon Hard Rock edition.  I've installed a MetalCloak Gamechanger lift, swapped the 4:10 gears with 4:88, added 35's (soon to be 37's) and some other miscellaneous stuff.  I still need armor underneath, air compressor, etc.

Is there a book or trail guide that you could refer me to?  I've heard several people mention different books but I've not gotten serious about getting one yet.    BTW, nice Jeep in your avatar!   That bad boy looks like it could handle just about anything!  






Go to work?  Probably Knott.  Because I cant.

Good to see you back Jim. I’m glad to know it was fun and games interrupting your progress. Maybe you’ll get some good weather to work with.

That is a sweet looking jeep. 

Best thing to do for Moab trails is hook up with a group of ppl and go wheel with them. The book may tell you about the trails but some of them are quite tricky to get to. It has been a very long time since I have been there. The trails have changed so much I probably couldn't even find half of them anymore. 

Whats tough is that some trails are on private land or you have to cross private land to get to the public trail on the other side. The landowners have become greedy and charge everyone to cross their property. I am not completely opposed to that but at $12 per person it gets pricey. Keep in mind this was probably 10 years ago now.

That 2016 looks nice, I am towing a 2005 with the rv. We were on the Rubicon trail a few years back, also worth a visit. Now back to your kiln, I am looking for more ideas.

Jim, that totally sounds like the kind of sidetrack story I could get into. It's why I never get anything done!😂
