Im planning my next 10 day overland tip for August. So I got out some video from last summers trip. Nothing fancy, just cuts of raw video. August will be my 3rd trip wheeling the Boss in Moab, UT. The first few minutes of this will show you why we go back every year. It is a truly spectacular place. A lot of this footage is from the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands National Park. It is 75 miles of awesome off roading perfect for a Trail Boss.

Very cool. 👍🏻 Great views and the always assuring spotter. . .*plastic air dam scrapes*. . . “You’re okay” 😂
 
Holy s#!t !! That’s some serious terrain. You got skills. Thanks for the video👍
 
I grew up in Utah and been to Moab many times. It's definitely a playground for the adventurous.
 
Moab is a major tourist destination for off roading. It has a long history of vehicle accidents. My friend and I go in August to avoid the spring and fall crowds. I don't mind desert heat and the return is having trails almost all to ourselves. It's awesome.

Very cool and I would do this. I do have a question though. Say I was about half way into the trip and a boulder happened to be sitting on the trail and the trail was now impassable. What would one do? Sure and turning around or backing down! Just curious? I'm sure it happens. Winch and pry bar?

Unfortunately it does happen. Most often it is an impassable washout or oncoming traffic. That's when you find out how well you can back up. I have been forced to make some precarious 20 point u turns as soon as that is possible.
Trail edicate dictates the uphill vehicle has the right of way when someone needs to pull off the trail to get by. But in reality that doesn't mean much. Most people are cool and you work together to sort it out. Not many people wheel full size rigs anymore. Where I go all I see is Jeeps and side by sides most of the time. I have gotten atitude from Razor guys a couple times that think they own the friging trail and I shouldn't be there. They call full size rigs Trail Whales. The Jeep guys are cool about it. This is my 6th 4wd vehicle. I have been doing this for a long time. My TB already has well over 2,000 miles off road. When it comes to off road performance it is mind blowing good. I will do all the same things with it I did in my Jeeps. It is limited only by its size, width, and wheelbase. So I don't have a pat answer to your question. It is all a risk and you deal with each situation as they come. I carry a lot of recovery gear but do not have a winch.

That is awesome! My TB is such a garage queen and I don't even park in the garage:p

LOL! Mine is too for the most part. I only take it off road mostly. Thought you were selling it! No?
 
It’s not really advertised but it’s for sale I guess🤣
 
Most of us would sell our trucks if the price was right. About 2 years ago I had a guy offer me $80k for my Trail Boss. I told him if the check cleared he could have it. He didn't whip out the checkbook. I would've just gone and ordered another Trail Boss if he'd bought my truck.
