    Sand Hollow Questions

    I have never been there. Just looking for some info from people who have.

    Is it worth the extra drive past Moab?

    How many days should I plan on being there?

    Good trails? How much is "doable" in a JKU? How about for a TJ?

    I have never been there but have heard it pretty awesome. I know one guy that wheels a ton in Colorado and Utah and says it's his favorite place to wheel.
    I plan on hitting it sometime this year.

    I had someone tell me "once you go to Sand Hollow you won't waste your time with Moab again".

    I had a blast in Moab so that kinda got me thinking...

    It’s a lot smaller than Moab, but trails are much more hardcore. Longer wheelbases will do better but you’ll want to be built for crawling, not just have a short arm lift and 35’s. You can get some good trail descriptions by going to the “winter 4x4 jamboree” site and Dixie 4 Wheel drive has a downloadable map of the area. Search you tube for trail videos of trails you are interested in. Happy trails!

    I had to look those trails up, but damn they look good. Probably a lot less crowded compared to Moab.

    Moab had a ton of SxS traffic on the trails. But it wasn't crowded when I was there mid May. Some trails like Pritchett Canyon and Moab Rim we never ran into anyone.

    I am thinking it could be fun!

    When I went to Moab I was part of a small group of 6 rigs. Two Jeeps with tons and 40's. Two Toyota's on 37's. One LJ on 37's and my little TJ Rubicon on 35's and a long arm lift.

    I was able to keep up but I had to winch up most of the big stuff. I couldn't keep the front end on the ground.

    I decided to build my JKU after that.

    Not sure I will be up for the buggy trails I found on the trails list. But if it is doable I will give it a go. I do enjoy the harder trails. Just not interested in spending all day adding dents and removing paint from my new rig.

    For sure. We need a Midwest invasion of the far west some day!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
