    Nice shots of spring creek, have you ever tried Billing Canyon? It looks pretty crazy and mostly rock crawling. Could be a good trail on the way to or from Moab.

    Never tried Billings Canyon but I've seen a video... it's pretty insane. My rig would probably be considered too small for a trail like that.

    As for other tough trails, Holy Cross has been on my bucket list for years. Hopefully I'll get a chance to run it this summer!

    Cool, Justin, I didn't know you had ran Spring Creek before... yep that first obstacle gets worse every year. The right line goes to the bypass, but now it's near impossible to reach the bypass without lockers.

    I've ran this obstacle all different ways... only had to take the bypass once after I sheared a CV (which was the deciding incident to go SAS). I love Spring Creek, but think I'm done with this obstacle because it's tippy and not all that much fun. Additionally, it usually has a line of vehicles having issues with it, which holds up your day. There's an option to take a road and cut out this small section completely.

    I'll see you next week!!

    This thread had a fully documented VX SAS that I put together for others to reference.Then photobucket changed their policies and broke all the links. I can't restore the links on my thread without paying a monthly subscription to photobucket... and that ain't gonna happen. I think the link below will get you to my library which has all of the pictures. Forewarning, there are a lot of pictures and photobucket will overload your browser with ads. PB is truly a POS company.

    As for wrapping, here are some tips:
    1. Order by the foot, everything comes in 5' width x order amount
    2. Measure each panel of the VX to get your final order amount. Should be around 30ft
    3. Prep paint with good scrub or clay bar. You want to remove any debris that keeps the surface from being smooth
    4. Remove trim, so you wrap under it. I pryed the cladding back a bit to get the vinyl underneath, rather than remove it entirely.

    Good luck!

    Now that they can tag every photo as hosted by Photobucket they have allowed outside links once again.
