    I am up for Pritchett. I am sure JJ won't go on that one. Not sure if my daughter will be there Wednesday or not. She may or may not go if she is.

    I am down for Pritchett as well.

    For the moab uninitiated, are there other trails as scenic as top of the world?

    For the Moab uninitiated, consider picking up this book. It's a great way to read about the trails before and as we do them. https://funtreks.com/product/guide-m...s-3rd-edition/

    Many of the trails have good scenery, though TOTW is one of the best. Hell's Revenge, Moab Rim, Poison Spider, Seven Mile Rim and others all have great scenic views. For a milder day, consider taking Shafer Switchbacks and Long Canyon for more great views.

    And for those not doing Pritchett, we'll of course have an alternate trail for that day. Seven Mile Rim is often a good alternate when we split up into two groups.

    Would love to see Pritchett but I don't know or think a stock H3 would make it in one piece? Are there bypasses on the big obstacles?

    EDIT. After reading about that trail it seems like the bypasses are almost just as hard.

    Was just going to write that. I watch 5 videos and read several trail reviews and it doesn't look to be IFS friendly. I wouldn't mind riding shot gun for someone and running the GoPro.

    I know any number of guys with H1s have run Pritchett successfully and they are full IFS but much beefier than an H3. I also know that several replaced multiple half shafts. A heavy toll on ball joints, idler and pitman arms is not uncommon.

    My PTO request is in for Wednesday and Thursday. I'll drive over from Junction on the weekends for day trips if there's wheeling to be had with the group.

    Ordered a new winch (mine began to fail on Pritchett last time and the synthetic cable has several bad spots) and am replacing my previously rebuilt RCV axles which are popping something fierce with some G2 Placer Gold Chromolys before the trip as well as having an overall health check of the rig by a local, trusted shop before returning to Pritchett.

    If you have a weak link in your rig. Any weak link. Pritchett will find it for you. I'll have room for a passenger or two if anyone wants to ride along. I don't recommend this trail for the feint of heart, the mildly built or the inexperienced wheeler. The beauty is epic and lures you in, but Pritchett is not forgiving!
    Current: '14 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. to build thread!

    Sold: '07 H3 Lux w/ a ton of stuff done to it. It's in the garage still if you want to see what was done.

    Recommended trail list and days:
    Sunday: Top of the World
    Monday: Hell's Revenge (all first timers have to do this trail and Monday usually has the best overlap of newbies)
    Tuesday: TBD (Metal Masher, Steel Bender, Poison Spider/Moab Rim?)
    Wednesday: Pritchett (crazy people); Seven Mile Rim (everyone else)
    Thursday: TBD
    Friday: TBD

    We did the Pritchett in the rzr in 2019. It was very torn up, and not IFS friendly because of the speed/spinning you need to get up some of the obstacles. Friends of mine with very capable rigs who have been doing it for 20 years opted out. We went anyway, it's a beautiful trail, amazing obstacles, but IMHO it's buggy territory now. SAS should be fine, but a stock BW transfer case could take a beating, so bring a spare.

    I'd rather be able to drive the Bebe Monster home and instead have a play date hanging out with the girls at our condo with the hot tub! 7 mile sounds fun too, but if Speedy can garner a seat for Pritchett I'm sure all attending will be glad he went with you

    So excited about this year!!!!
