    Nice shots! It is sad I haven't been on that trail since before the fires. Some of the spots I recognize but just barely without the trees.

    Where is the hill that is making you rethink gearing?

    Josh (sierrahsky) killed it like 20 times on that hill. :D FUN trail! Probably my 2nd favorite, but it's close to 1st. Checked out your full Moab trip. Sweet!

    Oh. I read that wrong. I thought it was after a hill from this past weekend that made you think about regearing.

    You know tire diameter also has some to do with the starting and stopping. On my old rig I did a trail called Iron chest with 33's and it overheated my AT. Came back a year later with 35's and had no problem with the trail at all.
