Looks like a sweet trip, good food too! I still haven't gone offroad yet this year, everything was locked down (whatever good locking down the trails does) until a couple weeks ago and I ended up working the last two Saturdays.
It took about 6 months from the time I ordered it to when I picked it up. Dave makes them to order, and I think they are in demand. Worth the wait though, best rear bumper on the market.
Yep, I think I've looked close at everything available for the rear and his is the best all around. I wish he'd make those front bumpers although I hear extensive R&D and materials went into it so the price point at first would be double the rest out there.. Oh well, I need no more items on the wish list.Worth the wait though, best rear bumper on the market.

I'm going to go with a Hardcore offroad rear tire carrier bumper . Cory at Hardcore said we can probably get a winch mounted back under there since I will have no need to put the tire back under and I don't plan on doing any towing . Option 2 would be a mini Keg-a-rater !!for front bumpers I have my eye on dezert runner

Of course any front bumper would require at the very least telling the wife it was happening. So probably a no go unless we start off-roading regularly.
For the rear which is more inconspicuous I have my eye on Bucksnort (which seems fairly cost effective from recent activity) and then the Maxgear. At the end of the day of course I don’t need any of it since I’m primarily on the pavement, and there may be better places to spend the money if available. Though my experiences of getting rear ended in both my previous (Nissan) vehicles makes me think it’s worth having, or switching to at the point I get rear ended in the X.

Due to a major life-changing event (we are moving to Ft. Collins, CO in the spring) I pulled the trigger on 2-inch OEM length Radflo's with 600# Eibach springs from Nisstec. Now I'll be able to drive my bucket list of Moab trails before we leave town.
That's big news! I think you're nuts for leaving Moab, but then again to me it's an offroad getaway, probably different if you live there year-round.
Awesome trip! The river crossing looks pretty deep. Was it somewhat solid underneath there?
freakin awesome M see ya this spring if not soonerTrip: Dad's 4WD Weekend 2021
Dates: 9-11 April 2021
This is a little late, but I'm trying to get my build page up to date before spring hits.
Another great Dad's weekend in the books. We originally wanted to drive Lockhart Basin to Elephant Hill, but got turned around at the crux on Lockhart and came up with an alternative on the fly.
We headed out from Moab on Kane Creek Rd, up and over Hurah Pass, and out toward Chicken Corners.
The beginning of Lockhard was AWESOME! Great wheeling, really fun. The GX was in the lead and ripped out the stem of his rear drivers tire on the bottom of the crux on Lockhart.
Since we didn't want to go further with out a spare, since the spare went on the truck, we turned around and found a camp out near The Wind Caves and started happy hour.
After a big breakfast, we headed back into Moab and dropped the tire off at the tire shop.
Then headed out to Boxcar Bridge and Kamikaze. This is a rally cool trail south of Moab, out on Hatch Point with great views and melow but engaging 4-wheeling. Toward the end of the day we descended Kamikaze Hill, a long, exposed, steep slickrock hill and found a fantastic camp at the end of the road overlooking Indian Creek.
Our last day on the trail. We decided to hit Cameo Cliffs and link it up with the west end of Rimrocker and drive as much dirt as possible back to Moab. This is a link-up I have been thinking about for a while and I'm psyched to have done it.
