    It's not the top of the tire that touches, it's the portion bulging out closer to the wheel itself, I can feel some abrasion marks. Probably harmless, but it is more the way it feels when it happens that I dislike if anything. Will for sure set it different when I get home.

    Oil change done, starting the 1790 mile journey home tomorrow. The wife decided to head back a couple days sooner (misses the dog lol) and I can't say I blame her. Definitely will be back to Moab and/or Ouray!

    So my cb radio (Midland 75-822) crapped out on me. We determined it is the adapter piece that slides onto the unit that has the antenna and 12V connector in one. The exact part is Midland 18-821 DC adapter. Midland doesn't sell that piece anymore and it is a unicorn it seems from all the google/ebay/amazon searching I've done. The fuse was good. I really don't want to buy a whole new radio, any ideas?

    Take it to a CB shop and see if they can see something in it fixable.

    Thanks for all the fun. I took your advice and ditched the spring on the antenna, so much better now.
    Glad to hear you could get the piece for your CB.

    BTW.... that was Tower Arch

    Sweet vids! That was a fun day on Fins! Glad you and @Brunnie had fun on Tower Arch. That's an amazing way to see Arches National Park.
