Re: CO chapter M&G pics/report.

Great time today even though I did blow up a brake line getting off of the interstate. Thank goodness I was able to get stopped for the stop light. lol

I totally forgot to bring the camera so my wife only took a couple of me on the ramp with my phone. Not too bad, I got 84" I believe on my short arm lift.





I wanted to keep the front fender trimming where it currently is, but it's clear that something has to change. I don't know if I want to bump stop it any more, so I suppose I'll have to think about cutting more off of the fenders.

Re: CO chapter M&G pics/report.

I had a great time today, the run up Eagle Rock was super fun minus the bitter cold drive up Old Stage Rd that morning. Jeep did great and is totally living up to my desires for a rig that can run the hard stuff and at the same time be fun and comfortable on the easy stuff. It soaked up the bumps very well and amazingly even without suspension seats my back isn't stiff and sore after a day of wheeling.

It was definitely good to meet the newer faces and get out there wheeeling with the CO Chapter again, it had been too long since I'd done a group run like this. Unfortunately I neveer did take any picture so I have none to post up. I also missed out on the RTI ramp which sucked for me, rigght when I finally decided it was worth unloading the Jeep just to flex on the ramp it was gone. Oh well, I'll catchi it next time.

Kronik, great job man. You took off before I could find you but it was an awesome turn out and great location. Major Kudos to you for getting it going.

Re: CO chapter M&G pics/report.

Soo... my girlfriend bent her rim and knocked off a wheel weight after a pretty tough climb. She did really well and I was proud of her but she got all and then and parked it...

so I was like

That sucked.

Later, I decided it would be better to just drive back down to her jeep and then go to culvers instead of driving all the way around and back up, so I grabbed some shots of her on the way back down and to my surprise she was in a much better mood... even LOVED 3 wheeling down the rocks. that made me









Keri and her pretty new jeep


and (name...???? I forgot) - bad luck this day... exhaust broke off at the manifold? Dutch grabbed the cat, the rest of it fell off at the trailhead... and to make matters worse, the vacuum disconnect on her front axle was disconnected... she drove through the pond like that too. (please please please tell me she is changing the fluid tonight Keri!)

Trying to spot her up the bottom of saran wrap was like sitting in the stands at a demolition derby with dirt flying everywhere and open headers. I couldn't figure out why only her rear wheel was spinning, thanks 40.Calpatriot (Justin, right?) for pointing out the vauum issue..

Anyway, she made sure to get through the pond on the way out....







That's all I have for now.

It wasn't bad at all once we got onto the trail and into the trees, then the slow movement kept the heat from the rig on us and the wind wasn't an issue. Now running up Old Stage Road at 20-30mph (not sure how fast I was going) absolutely sucked and I have no problem admitting it. I almost said frack it and turned around but in the end I had a blast and am glad I didn't.
