This past year I have seen hardly anything posted from any of the Colorado people. About only one I have seen is Jamie from Col springs. Other than Toypaseo posting goodies he has found I have seen nothing. I know Flyboycoe has PCSed to OK for flight training. But nothing from anyone else. Becker and Hokie are two to name a few.

Anyone heard from others in CO?

Kids! LOL
I talk to Brett sometimes still, he has 3 girls now and is building Mustangs and a new shop
I talk to Joe Deitz every once in a great while, he drives his sploder all the time, I know because I see him all over

I am still here! I have a kid coming!! LOL

I do see alot more lifted explorer's around these days, as they get older more and more mechanically minded people are getting them and rebuilding them, Maybe we should be handing out EF forum windshield cards again to recruit more CO members

I'm still here...(says the tiny voice)

I don't know if many people know me or not....I have not been as active around here as I used to be. Got into a new job last year so just been busy trying to make sure that is good. Got out a couple times last year, not as much as I'd like but hey... the trails included Chinawall, Chinaman's Gulch, Slaughter House, Bill Moore lake a couple of times...few others but not much

The computer got a nasty virus towards the end of last year so I have to reinstall windows and lost everything so not much pics of the wheeling but do have some...

I have wanted to go to moab every year, just haven't committed to it yet.... And RMFTC we run a annual trip to Chinamans ever year and that ened up being the weekend before the moab trip last year so I had to pick one

I'm also here usually doing more reading than posting-Hello from Montrose!
I hope to have my '94 Ex drivable by late spring.

I decided to poke my head back in the Colorado section and I see my name in the first post. :eek: Oklahoma leaves much to be desired on the fourwheeling front, so I got myself this to entertain me on the weekends.



By the way, flight training is going well, but it's a beast. 12 hour work days plus 2-3 hours studying each night doesn't leave much time to post on the Forum.

I was looking at the Nightster, then the Iron came out, and with a much more attractive price tag. This is my first bike, so I figure I can start with the 883, and maybe convert it to a 1200 later on if I want.

I don't remember China wall being that off chamber...but then again it was a while ago...

Chinamans is pretty fun, used to be doable in a almost stock rig...now it is getting to the point where some simple protection and a locker and a little lift is recommended

410 Check out RMFTC.com sometime...its a smaller site but that can be good or bad depends who you ask...

just the entrance to China Wall is on a hill side on off to teh right, its off camber just a bit, but in a tall BII with a wife digging her nails into your leg, and being loose dirt, its kinda scary...... we dont do shelf roads well :) LOL

Lockers for the FJ get here next week, its going to be a FUN summer, after we recover from baby in late April

I am starting the BII cage soon, maybe two weeks :)
finish V8 swap thats currently taking up garage, sell that 98 5.0L truck
put FJ in garage and swap front and rear diffs with new 4.56 and ARB locker diffs, install compressor, switches, etc
then finally back to the BII, taking her down to bare sheetmetal and shes going on a BIG diet
