    Personally I try to avoid death and destruction where me or my trucks are concerned.

    One thing no one has touched on and that is getting out if a rig or more disables on the trail. So if four go in, and two break, can the other two get the broken two out?

    Don't know anything about Hummers, but I do speak Malamute.

    Well, My pop is nearing his golden years and cant walk to far. Well probably decide if we want to run the trail when the day comes. Other than that i will try to gain up som spare parts. I do love a good challenge but again, from hearing Tim i am just not sure. Ill probably do research on the trail, but i am almost a guarentee i wont know until i arrive in moab. Does anyone think they could do it in a stock truck?

    I drive a stock H1 and the Psychos were in stock H1s. If you don't break and can drive you should be ok. Do you have a body lift or suspension lift?

    Installing a 2" suspension lift this weekend. Just wondering if I should upgrade the tires or not. Thinking not to until after the trip

    If they are still good I wouldn't upgrade them yet. The H1s do very well in stock configuration. They more people mess with them the more they tend to break.

    Thats kinda what I am planning. I am possibly thinking to install the lift, and wait a while before the tires.

    Any reason you chose suspension lift over body lift?

    The body lifts seem to be less problematic.

    Heres my 2 cents...I am no H1 expert like the other guys but lifting a 4x4 is to improve what you wish the vehicle had in stock form. jeeps H2's and H3's are simpler to lift. The H1 is complex and unless you dump thousands into a complex suspension setup you may only be hurting it. ORE and RonB's setup seem right when doing a suspension lift. If I own an H1 and hope to do so one day I would only do a body lift. The H1 suspension setup is great and if you want some more clearance body lift it and get some bigger tires.

    The reason i chose the suspension lift, IMHO i think its easier to install, and i am not Mechanically inclined to do the body lift. Plus, with all the parts i bought from a friend of mine, they where technically free. And I am just not that big of a body lift fan, dont know why, but i am not.

    David is right about keeping it as close to stock as possible for the most reliable truck. The more you do the more you are pushing the truck outside of it's design. I have a 2" duck body lift and getting those rockers up a bit is a good thing -- suspension lifts can open a big can of worms and you might end up chasing your tail beefing stuff up to deal with the different stresses.

    I was thinking of ditching my airbag suspension and going with springs and a smaller/custom spacer lift (maybe to get an inch+ instead of 2"+). I kinda miss the low maintenance of the springs -- but I may miss the smooth ride...and fitting in my garage more.
