Jefe, why disconnect one side of the rear torsion bar? Great thread. We were in Moab and surrounding area in June with our TC. Thanks

Jefe,

Great pics & write-up of a truly great trail and area. Sorry you and Alex/Julie couldn't go all the way up and out on the Mineral Bottom road, but at least you got to do a good portion of the route.

Cheers!
Don

"Light rain" and "occasional showers" reported with "big rains" before. The road looks like it could easily become impassibly greasy with enough precipitation. Did you have a backup plan?

There were parts of that trail where literally inches are the difference between go or no go!

You guys are really pushing the technical envelope here [emoticon]

Cheers,
