    Default Back at it!



    Hey everyone!

    After 8 years away from off-road adventuring I am back and for the first time in Colorado! Before I moved to Denver, I lived in Arizona and built a couple of Toyota rock crawlers including an 85 Toyota pickup with dual t-cases and a 93 4runner SAS project.

    I sold my toys before moving to Colorado and now I am finally getting back into it. This time with a Wrangler. I recently purchased a new-to-me 2012 two door Rubicon. My rig was built by a company that makes trail guides and was used as a scouting vehicle for their publications. In fact, you may have seen this rig on the tails in the past as it was wheeled all over the country by the previous owner.

    I am looking to hit some trails this weekend if anyone is interested.

    See you on the trail!

    Welcome Derek! There a couple of runs planned for this Friday (tomorrow). Kingston Peak and Chinaman Gulch. You would be welcome on either one! Check the trail run planning thread and the calendar and get yourself signed up!

    (BTW - Nice Jeep! It looks familiar, but newer!)

    Nice looking jeep...and looks quite capable. Recognize the spring creek obstacle in the 2nd photo. You'd probably love to run Chinamans on Fri if you are available (unfortunately I am not). Welcome...

    I guess we can go out with you to see if the ratings in the guidebooks are accurate!
