Fullsize Invasion Takes on Poison Spider Trail During Easter Jeep Safari 2016 - Video

Big trucks, little trail

There are more than just Jeeps that come to Moab to wheel the slick rock, and enjoy the views; a lot of them are fullsize rigs, which may present a problem on some tighter trails. We joined the General Tire Fullsize Invasion during the 50th anniversary of Easter Jeep Safari as nearly 50 rigs wheeled the awesome Poison Spider trail.

After meeting early in town we immediately checked out some of the biggest, stout, and coolest rigs we’ve seen all week. There was a clean Dodge ram ready to wheel, a mildly built Ford F-250, a badass Dodge Ram Power Wagon with Rockwell axles and 6BT Cummins diesel, and plenty of other awesome rigs that were ready to see what Poison Spider had to offer. Once we were done checking out all the killer trucks we aired down, loaded up and made our way to the trailhead.
With awesome weather and a ton of trucks we knew the trail would be awesome. After climbing the tight switchbacks we made our way to the first sandy canyon before taking on the first ledges. After wheeling a few more slots and the awesome V-Notch we kept going through the rocks, sand and slickrock before we ended up a the area known as “Little Arch” where we ate a quick lunch and enjoyed the picturesque view.

A couple quick trail repairs were taken care of before we started to make our way back. The rigs were put to the test as we took the obstacles the other direction, which made for a challenging and fun afternoon. Thanks to General Tire for putting together another fantastic Fullsize Invasion, where everyone with big 4x4 rigs had a blast wheeling Poison Spider.
