The silver one is quite possibly the coolest KJ ever.

Well here's what I got from day 2... my good camera isn't working so I had to use the backup :evil:

Playing on all the ledges throughout 7MR...
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Geeting flexy at the lunch spot...
Image

Then on to Wally's nemesis... the off camber traverse... :shock: It's pretty crazy...
Image

Crossing the slope...
Image

Then it was on to Wipeout hill... there really isn't a way to convey the steepness of this one. Let's just say that the rear tires on Yazhi's TJ were bouncing on the way down :shock:
Image

Image

Image

Heading back up...
Image

Image

Awesome stuff! I think these are the first LOST members to do Wipeout Hill :rockon:

No KJ's yet though :goink:

I used to drive around the buttes and up Wipeout fairly often in my TJ.

I just can't imagine taking a vehicle with carpeting and automatic windows out there. Moabites only retract power windows after a hose down. Otherwise the blow sand scratches hell out of them.

Then, there's the major question of approach angle on a KJ. If this had been next week (weather will be much better), I'd have gone down to see how people deal with smacking the plastic bumper into rock.

In fact, I am going down next week, but I'll be taking the TJ

It just takes a little longer to clean the sand out of the carpet :lol: The approach angle really isn't to bad, the plastic just kinds of flexes a little and you buff out the scatches later. :lol: I hear they did triple whammy yesterday so we will see how they did. We will be there on the 17th of May, can't wait to go back.

I drive around with the windows up and the AC on..... and I don't have plastic bumpers.

It was kinda nice last year cruising on top of the world with the ac on in July.

So I guess being from Draper means I can cruise MOAB with a nice interior and I have all my teeth. :mrgreen:
