    The final day of wheeling was down to Jason, XPLR7 and me. We did Seven Mile Rim Trail, a moderate trail with lots of ledges and a few obstacles. The biggest optional one is Wipeout Hill, which you saw in the video above. It's been known to roll vehicles, and break tie rods and CVs on H3s. It was very sandy today but XPLR7 crawled right up with no issues.

    Here's Jason on a small ledge


    XPLR7 on a nice overlook


    And getting a nice shot of my H3


    Jason at Burnt Toast, a squeeze too narrow for H1s.


    XPLR7 on a hill that turns you sideways against the hill. As you drive towards this hill, it really looks bad, like "I ain't doing that!" But it's not too bad as long as you keep a steady throttle.

    Great pics! Super bummed I missed it. Work has been crazy and was lucky enough to get away this weekend for some wheeling. A full week in Moab would have been better though

    I did not know this! For my first trail in Moab in my 06 H3 I did metal masher and then backwards bill, including up and down wipe out hill without any issues, but the next day on poison spider mesa I bent a tie rod. Wonder if I lucked out on wipe out hill and my tie rod issues became present afterwards on poison spider mesa because of wear. Luckily I had 16mm spares so we could repair on the trail but in hind sight should've swapped out the stock 14mm tie rods for the 16mm before Moab...lesson learned.

    That was back in Oct 2017, I then missed a Moab run in April and Oct 2018 because of best man duties and rig repairs/upgrades. Finally got my rig back in Moab this past weekend (4/26-4/28), although I missed meeting up with everyone for black sheep week other than alrock...thanks again. This time I did come equipped with some Outfitter Design HD tie rods, so hopefully my bent tie rod issues are behind me...and that was true for this trip .

    Was out in Moab from 4/26-4/28 and got to meet alrock, hopefully I'll get to meet the rest of the group next year.

    My group started out on Friday with Cliff Hanger...man was that a trail/mistake lol. We spent 3 hours moving basically 1/4 of a mile on the first 4 obstacles and decided to turn back since not all of us were equipped with $40k suspension rigs like one of my friends jeep. I made it down the first 3 obstacles, using a bypass on the first but after crossing a creek we got to an obstacle that the jeep barely made it up. The rest of us where not as dedicated so we flipped it around. I ended up needing a strap back up the 1st and 3rd obstacle as I needed a tad bit more travel in my rear wheels...hoping some rear sway bar disconnects and extended brake lines will provide some help there in the future.

    We then finished off the day with Kane Creek Canyon, which was a success however I again needed a strap/tug to get over a rock I high centered on lol. In my defense apparently the jeep that tugged me out also high centered at the same spot on a previous run last year. I would also like to add that the schwarttzy heavy duty skid plates again lived up to their reputation while I was high centered and also while I was dragged/tugged off that rock. I would buy these skid plates again in a heart beat if needed, so those on the fence definitely worth it! I'll post some pics of my updated skid plate look a bit later on.

    For our last day of wheeling we did 3D, figuring this would give the group a nice long/relaxing trail to enjoy after a hectic day on cliff hanger and cane creek. The weather was great that I was able to throw the tube doors on, although it made a mess of my interior but I have no regrets . I did lose my front license plate, bent the hell out of my back license plate, and smashed a good part of my nfab "rock sliders" which did the job this time around but I need to replace with something heavier duty before too long. I also took a good amount of video from my gopro which I'll post a link to when I get a chance to upload it.

    That 4th obstacle sucked. The group ahead of us said they were regulars and never seen a Hummer make it up that without being dragged. I was able to make it up by driving up the far right cliff face without a strap but it was so steep that my spare tire was touching the ground and a serious pucker factor
