If you drive this obstacle make sure you get both front  tires coming off the drop at the same time instead of dropping the left tire down first unless, of course,  this type of adventure is what you’re looking for.

Thanks to Jeff and Ryan for the see saw tip job getting me back on all four wheels.

LOL, all I could think of is someone on the highway will have a wreck wondering if you are OK. 

Looks like quite a line of rigs waiting their turn in one photo. You guys are going to wear out the trails if you keep it up. Have fun and stay safe, Oilly

We are sitting on an overlook on the Moab Rim trail looking down on the town of Moab, with the Beautiful La Sal mountain range in the distance and on the other side of town below the mountains is the area where the Hell's Revenge and Fins and Things trails are. Really great view that you could only get in a jeep, or maybe a jeep wannabe.
That's me on the right, I'm from Northern Utah, Billy Douglas (Bdouglas here on the page) from Alabama whom I just met, and Jeff Petrowich (jpet) from Illinois, whom I consider one of my greatest friends. All people who I have met due to this forum and our little jeeps. And we are sitting there discussing jeeps and life and such, like we have know each other for our entire lives. And casually doing it in a very inaccessible and breathtakingly beautiful place like it was the local bus station.
Amazing!!

Are you guys registered and running with RR4W or just running your own group?  Is it super busy?  I'm thinking of coming down Saturday but don't want to get in the way sort of speak.
Unfortunately work wont let me come down Friday.

Jeff’s leaving Friday after the Fun Run. I’ll be here Saturday and we will probably do something, just not sure what. Saturday is the busiest day fir EJS and the have groups on just about every trail so we may be struggling to find something that’s not busy.

 I know videos are deceiving, but it looks like you didn’t need to roll through it? do you think it’s possible to creep down it?

I wasn’t sure if I would belly out or not and if I start sliding, I don’t want to flip over or break an axle when I impact the bottom. Billy broke his front axle shaft on the obstacle. We got back to camp about 8:30 that night. We we need to get together in Moab and give it a try.

Edited.

BDouglas's jeep reminds me of an old article in one of the jeep magazines.  "Finishing what Willys Started."  Here is a big "Whoo Hoo" from Alabama.
