      whats up all. any interest in doing a trail run here sometime in the next week? its that time of year again, and trails should be fairly dry with the lack of snow this year. Something maybe around boulder like chinaman's, or lefthand/carnage. or even down south by woodland park.

      dude! FJ is amazing off road, its so wide its very stable and the perfect wheel base for trails, BUT its got blond spots GALORE = trust your spotter (me)

      currently its 3.73 and open diffs, by Monday it will be 4.56 and ARB's front and rear :)

      good thing the BII is out of commission for a while (shooting for 3-4 months)

      sounds like the old fj's lol. id still be afraid to take something new like that up on the trails. classy driveline setup though. arb's are money on the trails, especially with a ratio like that.

      salida would be cool

      Gunnison or taylor park would be good too

      offroader_69_me - yes I get to trinidad once on a while. In fact I was hoping to do Mt Blanca sometime soon, which isn't very far from you.

      wanna go?
      probably not until may though

      With all the great trails around this state, I have to kick myself for not getting out more. I think I'm going to plan a trip for sometime this summer to my old home-town, Glenwood Springs. It's been years since the last time I was up Transfer-Trail, take that on up to the Flattops for some R&R. That is assuming I have any PTO/vacation time left after having to take most of it to stay home and take care of my wife after her (OMG!) 20th knee surgery next week. If I don't do Transfer-Trail, they I'll definately plan a day-trip up past Basalt, up the north fork of the Frying Pan river to Burnt Mtn. and over the top of the mountain and down the other side to Wood's Lake. I haven't been there in over 25 years. Last trip I made there was to visit John Denver at his cabins that he was rebuilding/restoring. (Yes, I really was friends with him, he was a REALLY nice guy and very down-to-earth) My father owned and operated a good-old-fashioned sawmill where we did our logging with draft-horses, built our own logging roads with a D3 CAT and carried the logs down the logging roads to the mill on the frame of an old military 6X6 (purchased from the Aspen Ski Corp.) and sold the lumber, fence posts, fence rails and so on to all the locals of the area. I had a really cool childhood! :cool:

      Well, I'm also in Colorado, SE Denver area, and like everyone else it would seem, life hit hard and low over the past few years so off-roading just hasn't happened. I would be game to do some runs over the summer, but the Beast needs lots of love, and new tires/wheels... so we'd probably come in the wife's ride... a 2006 Heep Rubicon with the 6-speed manual that's still stock. :mad:

      One day it'll get a Rubicon Express long arm lift, full armor, and a winch, but my truck comes first. :salute:

      So if you guys won't open fire on me if I show up driving such blasphemy, I'd love to come.

      Oh, and 410, if you need an extra pair of hands with the bronco, let me know and I'd be glad to help. My dad had one of the old bronco's (I think a 1968) that still holds a special place in my heart, so it would be good to work on one again after all these years.

      I'd probably only be able to help out during the summer however, as college is really kicking my ass. I'm doing Aerospace Systems and Engineering Technologies, and I'm not great at math. :(

      So are we going to do a CO run this year???

      Naasau, Why go with the rubicon express when you can get the TnT Customs lift and armor, It is made over in cheyenne. I know the owner and most of the people who work there.

      Aviator, honestly I've never looked at TnT customs. I've bookmarked their site and hopefully I'll run across some examples of their work before the time comes to make a decision about the Rubi, which is still a good 2+ years off.

      So are we going to actually plan out a summer expedition this year? Its felt awfully quiet on this thread for the past week or so.
