Had to send the guy a registered letter asking him to fill out paperwork as to why no title. End of November I finally got enough paperwork to satisfy Cheyenne. Don't want to go thru that again ! Don't knock Wyoming as there is only 500,000 people in state. Traffic jams are unheard of around here. How's that traffic jam on I 25 in the Springs, Denver and Fort Collins ? Not to mention the unlimited capacity of mags allowed here !

Itís only windy when you are passing through.
I drive back and forth from SLC to to Denver 6 days a week ... It's always windy . What is there in Wyoming besides open fields , tumble weeds , WIND , blowing snow , and wind ? I spotted a sign the other day for dental work in Cheyenne stating a full set of Wooden teeth done in a day .

If something has a VIN already then itís a pain if you donít have a title, but if you are starting from scratch itís easy. Especially if you are involved with LEO frequently.

Everyone that says itís windy in Wyoming is why itís always windy. Stop talking about it and it goes away.
There is a lot to offer in Wyoming. Great fishing and lots of mountains to explore could keep one busy for a lifetime. Donít get me wrong, i grew Up in Westminster and thought Colorado was the best place ever, now Iím not so sure you could pay me enough to live on the front range.

Re: The Colorado BS thread

Ever been to the Bighorn Mountains ? What I have explored is more over landing than rock crawling. Ever had a moose come stomping thru your camp site at 9 pm ? No other campers within a half mile ? Never mind this is all BS, stay in Colorado !

Why did Wyoming ever allow anyone to register anything with out a title ?Now titles are required to register, at least in Gillette. I have become friends with the community service officer in Gillette. I have had to get titles for a military trailer , a home built trailer and one I bought out of Colorado in the last few years.

Probably because no one at crawlertech could ever pass the piss test.

Re: The Colorado BS thread

Only ever heard one complaint from crawlertech and it was from Chad and it ended up being a difference of 3/16 on a set of slider legs.

Only thing I ever had built by crawlertech was supposed to be round sliders like we’re on Joshua’s blue xj ended up being built entirely of square material.

End of the day I am a welder for Tnt and can only build stuff to the tolerances we have in our jigs, can’t change stuff unless people tell us it’s not perfect.
