You guys are tempting me. The only bummer is I wouldn't be able to run Rimrocker with my camper. Hopefully it cools off enough after the sun goes down for sleeping.

I'm not doing Cliffhanger or Golden Spike though. Been there done that with my previous rig. Elephant Hill is more my speed nowdays, or maybe Kane Creek if I'm feeling adventurous.

I am not sure what rimrocker is ? But if you have a camp trailer i would suggest leaving it at a camp site . Sand Flats is just above the Hells Revenge entrance and tends to be a little cooler if it gets to hot . Also Do not worry about running Certain Hard trails . There were alot of FJs last year and they split up into groups . As far as Cliffhanger goes i know a few of us will try it . We may get to it and see that we just can not do it ? Nobody wants to tear up there FJ . Some of us will be leading Trails at Summit and need to drive thousands of miles to get home so we kinda have to know are limits . The best part about both B4S and Summit is you get to wheel with other FJs , and its fun to see what they can do . Also if something does happen Together we can fix just about anything .

Rimrocker is the trail directly between Moab and Ouray. Its the one many people drive on Tuesday morning.

I didn't remember any obstacles really, its quite easy. I may not take a "highway" camper on it but a decently equipped one would be fine.

Decent video, you can easily pull your camper on it bro. I’ll be taking it back to Ouray myself and CabinCruiser may be taking it too if he can make it to Moab.

I was waiting for Deb But i got antsy :blueblob: But if you could That would be great . Thank you
I'll go ahead and start a new thread with the general meet info we've used in the past.

I've always wondered what that trail was like ever since I read about them starting to make it. Now I know I can take the Tundra over it and could probably pull my toy hauler over it too.

That last part where they made the wrong turn and ended up at the highway looks like where I came out on a trip up that way one day. I think that when they went back in and turned onto the rough trail I came from the road straight ahead. I was at the Easter Safari and had the day off so I decided to head up to the mountains to cool off and explore. I drove past Ken's Lake and then turned off to the right up top heading past some camp sites and a small lake and then on to Dark Canyon. I eventually came to a T with a reservoir to the left and the highway to the right. Pretty drive too.

Yeah, I know it's not a technical trail but my camper is not at all an off-road camper.

Sand Flats is a thought. Or I might camp at Pack Creek, nice to have a shower after the trail, and electricity for my CPAP, and AC if needed.

Hey if you're built for Cliffhanger etc. go for it. I can find plenty of trails to entertain myself. Really want to do Elephant Hill again; I haven't done it in the FJ.
