Going to Moab--Considering Beadlocks

I've got a Moab trip coming up here in April, and its time to start getting the rig dialed in. I'm thinking a set of beadlocks with my 37'' MT Baja MTZ's may be a good bang for the buck upgrade.

Any thoughts on going with the two-piecers on the rocks?

Going to Moab--Considering Beadlocks

With 37's and Moab I wouldn't bother with beadlocks, no need from a functional standpoint. I wouldn't spend money on them for that reason. (Just cause you are going to Moab).

I can't think of any trails around Moab where I'd say beadlocks are a requirement with 37" rubber. Some of the hardest trails in BFE they might be needed, but you'd have to have bigger rubber than 37's to do the trails.

That said, I like beadlocks. I have them on jeeps with 35", 37", 40", and 43" rubber. They are helpful on hard trails in places like carnage canyon, St George, Montrose, rangely, Penrose, and Las Cruces.

But heck, beadlocks are cool. Just buy em if you want them, you don't need Moab as the excuse.

I love Wheeling, it frees the mind

Thanks for the insight, LHR. They'd be sweet, no doubt!

I think I'd consider a two tire setup at some point, running beadlocked MT's when you need them, and mounting up some AT's for snow and less intense/more roady outings.

Hmmm.....
