Bad plugs, good trails-Getting Moab Started

The streets are lined with Jeeps, semi-truck’s full of aftermarket wares, and wheeling enthusiasts from all walks of life. After unloading, I spent Saturday putting a few break-in wheeling miles on my freshly built ’07 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. After discovering the JK’s steering doesn’t love the low air pressure and sticky terrain, my oil-burning engine killed the number six spark plug.

A closer inspection under the hood also revealed that the driver’s side exhaust manifold was cracked. At this point, I just need the stock 3.8L to make it to the end of the week! Sunday morning, my cohort for the week Randy Crews and I, swapped out the bad plug, topped off the oil, and hit the trail for more action. From sand dunes to rockcrawling, the week is starting off great.

While I am snapping up photos, Randy is doing a great job creating videos of our almost-live Moab coverage. Keep checking back as things will only get more interesting as the week progresses.
