Little more than a month away. Seen a lot of #moabprep, so what is left to do? Luckily most of mine are wants, not needs.

-4x6 rocker steel (a want not a trip stopper)
-New bushings in front end(again not a stopper)

Tow truck:
-New steer tires(gotta happen)
-Decent stereo(want)
-Spare rim(be nice but it is a dually so a spare ummounted tire works)

-Replace worn out suspension parts(Need)
-Brakes on second axle(sure be nice in the mountains, but not a trip stopper)

This is how it is coming to Moab:

So any one else need to do stuff?

Been slowly knocking out Moab prep. Have it down to a pretty manageable list.

Install armor and build tube fenders. Maybe some more tube work on the cage if I run out of stuff to do.

Tow Rig:
Dual battery setup, and running power to the cap to make living out of the back more enjoyable.

Need to rewire/replace the breakaway system.

Other than a few trips around town this will be the first trip for the trailer.

Locate some d35 shafts for spares. I'm surprised how hard they are to come by.

Lets see...

The Jeep doesn't need much. I think I have a small leak at the power steering return line. And if I have to be running CB I need to put together a CB radio/antenna and mounts and wiring for both.

I would like to get rock rails on the Jeep, but that isn't likely to happen.

The trailer doesn't need much either. I just need to get the new license plate installed on it, and perhaps build another bunk.

The tow vehicle definitely needs a new driver's door latch. That little component decided to give up the ghost three days ago. And the rear tires are looking pretty worn out.

It would be nice to replace the leaking freeze plug, but I have been nursing it along for the last several thousand miles, it can probably do a another couple thousand.

And then there is the question of building a custom fire pit. I have a base from which to work and a rough idea of what I want to do. I just need to get all the pieces together and work on it.

Since I upgraded to 35" tires from 33s, the back tires rub against the bumper, which wraps around the sides and covers the lower quarter panels on the fenders. So I was going to modify the bumper, which would also require doing a cut-and-fold on the fenders in order to get enough clearance. But at this point, I'm thinking I may just fab up some spacers to go between the bumpstops and the frame rails and call it good enough. Probably not the right approach, but it'll be a lot easier and quicker and should work as a temporary measure.

I started packing today. Left about 230 bux at harbor freight. I printed off xjtrailriders list from another thread. I got just about everything. Still need a few odds and end tools and order some spare parts off amazon.

Mind posting up that list.. I'd be interested to see it and compare to what I think I need. I'm sure I'm missing some thing.
