  1. @CAVU2 running a tight section of Charouleau Gap. Pardon my crappy filmmaking.
  2. Full Video of @theksmith's run on the Step
  3. I didn't take it as a critique. I was agreeing with you and lamenting that what I see is not what I am able to show.
  4. Here are some select pictures I took while on the run. /bad pun Break time after the recently plowed part of the trail. (Plowed for fire access?) Biosphere 2 from the backside (camera was level with the Mojave's dashboard) As we came up to the rescue location Rescue pictures: "Feeling cute, might delete later." Back on the trail Mt Lemmon and the fire damage Back country traffic jam Gadget on the step Mojave crawl through the creek Tire carnage repair Well that would have been nice to know sooner Going around Kissing Rock (camera is level to the Mojave's dashboard)
  5. I have always had an issue trying to get video and pictures to show "reality". Trying to pull real texture out of images and video has me stumped.
  6. I have also scored a permit and would like to sign up. /Woody
  7. I cannot make it due to that date being my wife's birthday. However Funtreks has updated that trail in their new book (3rd edition). It now starts from the staging area in the Table Mesa area (Little Pan) avoiding the gas pipeline route. /Woody 037-Black-Canyon-City-Overlook.gpx
  8. I am really sad that MBRP gave up on their Off Camber line of products. I have their rock rails on my 2008 JKUR and I like them because, they are good profile (no loss of clearance), frame mounted and body attached, offer side/body protection, and have bolt-on/off removable steps (my wife wants steps when she uses that Jeep). They also have a fairly clean look. I, not unlike @theksmith, like a non-flashy look to my vehicle. Although I give him the tip of the hat to having maybe a bit more OCD than I do about it.
  9. As an aside on where to purchase from... I just discovered that https://azwholesalemopar.com is an online front-end to Larry H Miller. You can order your parts on their site and save on shipping by choosing local pick-up at their Peoria location off west Bell/101. The prices on that site are as good as any have found online for OEM part ordering. Far cheaper than Quadratec for OEM parts.
  10. Picked up a Jeep Gladiator Mojave in August while out on vacation in southern Utah. Did some basic tinkering this weekend... Stock: Added wheels and tires earlier this month... Then this weekend added in-bed cargo management rails, Hi-Lift mount and Hi-Lift, hard tonneau cover, and (Rubicon) bed rock rails/sliders... The rock sliders were a "fun" install. I had to carve up the plastic bumper and remove a corner reinforcement part to make room for the slider bar and its bumper attachment bracket welds. The Rubicon's steal rear bumper apparently does not curve under as much as the plastic variants. And for those keeping score at home, yes I have a bad habit... Immediate ToDo's include: Replacing the factory AM/FM antenna with a AM/FM/CB using the Rugged Ridge mount bracket and signal splitter Running the Ham mag mount antenna wire in the cab for handheld radio; true mobile and hard mount antenna will come later Testing Bed-tent setup with tonneau cover
