Cool. I just bought a tow rig a few months ago. All i need now is to find a trailer to rent or borrow.

Re: Moab naxja event next Oct

Man, I never tow my Jeep any where, I drive it to Oregon, Washington, Nevada, SoCal, daily to work, you name it. Went to Moab a few months ago...decided what the heck, lets trailer it, stupid trailer broke in Utah and cost me 1,000 bucks to fix it. I ended up driving 700 miles round trip the rest of the way to Moab and then picked up the trailer on my way home. LoL. Never again...I'm driving my junk next time.

Re: Moab naxja event next Oct

Mary & I are in.

Not sure how we are getting there, drive or tow, her XJ, my XJ or both, we have done all the above in the past. We have used an RV at Slickrock, a motel on the main street and a condo on the south end of town. Each has it's own advantages.

but we are in for another trip to Moab!

Re: Moab naxja event next Oct

I am a definite maybe for this trip. I really want to go, just have to see how it all pans out. I would love to carovan and take a couple dyas getting there vs. the all nighter I did last time.

Maybe drive to Vegas, stay the night and drive the rest the next day.

Not sure if I will have a tow rig, if not, I heard sending the rig over by train to Salt Lake is an option. Gonna look into that too.

Re: Moab naxja event next Oct

I can do a definite maybe too. I will drive most likely as I don't see the Focus doing that well as a tow rig.
This is a week long event I hope.

Re: Moab naxja event next Oct

i like the vegas idea. I just figure if the XJ has to drive for 18+ hours then i better haul a trailer full of spare parts cuz the jeep is going to hate life.

Maybe we can rent a double trailer? It would be worth it to split the cost and not worry about breakage

I found single trailers for $300 a week

Well i think i would need a goose neck for that though

Re: Moab naxja event next Oct

I would have to tow my junk. a 3speed auto does horrible on the highway. I would probably blow it up.

Re: Moab naxja event next Oct

I'm coming from Indiana, 1500 miles! It'll be nice to see some of the guys from the west coast who I have harassed over the years!
