Default Box Canyon Trail with our 2012 Eco FX4 on 37s

We took a couple of our truck out this morning to play. We have had a little rain lately so we finally got to see mud and some water in box canyon. The one truck is our 12 eco FX4, the other black one is our 2007 XLT.

Hope you enjoy the pics, we had a blast this morning.

Yeah, fun but messy. I hate mud! Suppose a benefit of playing w/ company rigs is that hired help does the washing afterwards!

BTW, I'm just "up the road" from you at 5k' elev...

5K elevation probably gets you some cooler weather. As far as washing them, we just ran over to a pressure wash self serve car wash and spent 20 bucks in quarters. I hate leaving the mud on the trucks. We left some Sedona mud on our 2004 F150 and it stained all the black plastics.

Yep, Rim Country don't ya know! BTW, your pics were good viewing!

My jeep club runs local trails every Weds plus usually one Sat per mo too in all points of the compass depending on time of year and weather. Week before last after Monsoons, we came back muddy w/ subsequent trip to coin wash "mud bay". We gathered this Weds morn just as big storm cell coming up from the valley started dumping, so scrubbed 1st run this year due to weather. Too much mud!
