 That looks like you did a great job! Your X is really coming along, definitely one of the better builds.

Well, this is my first trip to Moab with GONE. Today was registration and the meet-n-greet, but I promise there will be wheeling pics to come.

Awesome, Rick, I want and plan to be there next year.  Keep the pics coming, drooling, be safe out there man, and the group!

Looks like you're having a great time Rick! Do I spy SoCalXTerry spotting you up that hill?

Yes, you do. Dani was leading and Terry was running around spotting.

Now, for some flexy shots from Seven Mile Rim today.

Nice! So, would you say 3" lift proper, I mean UCA, AALs or pack, skids, sliders, bumpers are enough for this trip? I'll have a winch by then, too, yeah!

Yes, that'll be good for the blue trails. You might want to consider 285's, but there were a couple people on the trail with 265's.

Yep I’m on 33” KO2s already, no problems at Sedona, White Mtn W-E, Anza so far, plenty of clearance. Just no Titan swap.

You'll be fine without a T-swap.

I got the opportunity to run a trail today that I thought I'd never run. The pictures speak for themselves.

Might as well add a couple more...

First two are from Fins on Friday, the last three are from Jax Trax on Thursday.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190527/33c41597daf74515cea862898857b5d2.jpg
