    Been there done that at Moab Rim. For the most part, I was just planning on kicking back & being mellow this year but if we need to make a statement to doubters I'm in.

    Of course, ya know I'm in... I can attest to the stock performance of a VX in Moab, they DO kick some butt.




    You will have fun even if you don't run trails. Moab is a friendly and peaceful place and there is plenty to do.

    Scott,
    You are a half a vehicle length away from the edge on Porcupine Rim. What's up with that? Not only that but you need to take the picture from the other side with the LaSals in the background.
    Wish I had been ther when you guys did Hells Gate. Maybe we should all do Lions Back.

    OK then let's do Pritchett. I did it both ways in my Amigo but havn't had the chance to take the VX through.

    Cool

    Hey Grandpa Bob, wondering if you do a difficult trail if I could ride with you??? I am still opting for the 3 or 3+ in my own VX...

    No problem! If we decide on a difficult trail, you can drive if you like.

    But this is a VX board. So how bout we take our VX'x up the Rim in May. I have been meaning to take mine but seems like my time is limited when in Moab. Let's see You, Me, Grampa Bob. Who else runs at least 33's and a front locker? Now that would make a great picture with all of us on the Z turn.
    Todd what 33 inch tires are you running? I am debating BFG AT KOs - 295 75 R 16 if major trim is not required.
    Thanks

    Bob,
    33x10.50x15 in put them on the stock Amigo rims that have less back space.

    Bob,
    I know where you can find 5 stock Amigo rims. We replaced our stock tires and rims a few months back on the Amigo, and the rims are just sitting there.

    If you do take a trail with Grampa Bob, he will have the tools to fix/remove any broken parts you wind up with. D'oh! Thanks Bob!
    However, a stock VX can easily take 3 or 3+ rated trails (even on street tires).
