Whats everyone planning on running, and any recommendations for a T-Swapped on 35's? Thinks about mostly red and a few easier ones to catch my breath! Looking forward to the first GONE!!

Poison spider is a fun one, we did that last year but once is good for me. Well most likely do Metal Masher again that was a blast. I’d like to also do hell’s gate next year but past that I’ll prob do blues and a green just have fun. Doing 3 reds and 2 blues was not an easy week.

Almost any trail you haven't done would make for a good week. Don't do a full week of Reds. Every trail from the light blue on up will have some tough sections.

Everything happens for a reason .... Sometimes the reason is that you're stupid and make bad decisions.

People might normally say start off the week with the Offroading 101 (Tip-Toe Thru Fins) to get acquainted to the driving conditions on slickrock - but you're from Utah so assume it won't be something new to you. Although you still might want to do it - Terry is TL and is very knowledgeable of the area and the trails and an all-around great guy to hang out on a trail with, and Fins is still one of my favorites for Moab.

My first year out I did 3 Reds and 2 Blues, and agree with others in that it was very tiring. Last year I also did 3 Reds/2 Blues, although the Reds were on the easier side than my first year. Its nice to have some Blues mixed in, especially the scenic ones. I've never done any of the Greens, but have heard White Rim is fantastic for scenic interest and plan on running it in the future.

As far as what trails your rig can handle - I would say half of it is also your off-roading skills. My first year I was mostly stock except for a 2" lift (AAL and Spacer), sliders, and 33" tires. Stock bumpers, skids, open diffs, manual. I ran Backwards Bill, TOTW Reverse, and Hells Revenge for Reds. There was only one obstacle I had to bypass on TOTW, as I didn't have the approach angle with my stock bumper to get my tires on the ledge.

Follow your spotter, stay off the skinny pedal, and you'll have fun. T-swapped with locker and low gears will make it all the easier.

Some of my favorite Reds:

TOTW (have done it both normal and reverse, enjoyed normal much more. The view at the top is all worth it).
Backwards Bill (Did this my first year out, Wipeout Hill was fun, but was very nervous as it was my 2nd trail of the week).
Poison Spider (it was a looong trail, but I still enjoyed it.)

Favorite Blues:

Fins (The climbs are fantastic - its fun when you start up and think it is too steep but the tires just grip like crazy)
Bartlett Overlook (good scenic trail)
Porcupine Rim (a nice one to end on Friday, as its short but still has some fun climbs/descents. View from top is also very nice).

Here's my lineup for 2019 (doing more Blues this year, and focusing on ones I haven't run before)

M: Dome Plateau
Tu: Elephant Hill
W: Steel Bender
Th: Flat Iron Mesa
F: Fins

Leading the Overland Trip and plan to be back by Wed night. I'd like to run Elephant Hill on Thursday (bucket list for me) and either Seven Mile or Steel Bender on Friday.

Really looking forward it!

Definitely don't do all Reds!
By Friday, you'll be beat!
Break it up a bit.

Fins, 7 Mile, TOTW, Metal masher, Elephant Hill, Poison Spyder, Flat Iron Mesa are my favorites all lots of fun.

I'm leading Bartlett Thursday, which consists of tusher tunnel, Bartlett wash, mashed potato's, and Bartlett canyon overlook. A few fun obstacles, and incredible scenery!
