rainbow falls/ mini moab

We got out around lunch time and had fun before the snow came in.
Plan was to also run the other near by systems but the snow kicked us out.
Good to meet some new faces/ looking forward to dry trails soon.
Flores, get John's pictures from facebook to throw up here/ wish I could drive and snap pics

Good times for sure. The snow really made it scenic. Wish we could've hit those gulches though.


Here are some more pics of the day.

Re: rainbow falls/ mini moab

hey now, those sliders have been previously broken in, I just touched up the paint afterward -- krylon black satin is what's on everything, by the way, makes touch up a breeze!

Re: rainbow falls/ mini moab

Factory "taupe" paint -- the sunburn had cooked all the factory paint off the hood so I rattle caned it with mopar color match - there is a good write up on jeep forum about cutting out the factory spare "bucket" and raising the tank by 6 inches or so... I never got around to it.

Yeah that's it but it is a legal obstacle ... When I was there in person it looked able to be done by a rig on 35s and locked the only and needing to winch off the top , but that was 3 years ago .
