Re: 2019 Moab B4 Summit
As many times as I've been to Moab over the last 13 years to go 4-wheeling with groups that included lots of FJ Cruisers, the worst instances of damage I've witnessed included CV's and Tie-rod end's (well, other than a 3rd Gen. 4-Runner rolling over on it's side on Hell's Gate, a 1st Gen. 4-Runner rolling over on it's side on Moab Rim and yet another 1st Gen. 4-Runner rolling over completely on Moab Rim.......the latter two instances being very heavily modified 1st Gen's). In each instance that resulted in a CV or a Tie-rod being damaged, it was driver error that caused the problem (almost inevitably too much throttle on tough obstacles). For that reason, if you don't have much experience, it's pretty essential that someone that does possess a great deal of experience be there to verbally walk you through what you're about to experience and then spot you up or down whatever obstacle you're attempting. Have them go over in detail with you why they've chosen whatever line it is they'll be spotting you on for that particular obstacle and commit it to memory.
