PostSubject: Colorado Off-Roading this weekend   Tue Jun 28, 2011 3:34 pm

The family is headed out to Colorado to visit our son who is station at Fort Carson. He has a Jeep XJ that he and I did a build on over a couple of years before he went into the Army. Nothing extreme...3 1/2" lift on 32s, HD control arms (after he completely bent his on a trail out there a few months ago), Locked front and rear, sliders, some skids. No bumper and winch yet, but is high on his must get soon list.

We are doing Eagle Rock trail for starters with a group called Military Jeepers. Hope to have some great pictures and video. There is usually an FJ that goes with them, hope he is there, really want to see one in action.

Just got back from Colorado...WOW! There are FJs and Jeeps everywhere. We spent Saturday on the trails near Colorado Springs. After a long ride to the top, we finally hit the trail. We started on Saran Wrap and then hooked into Eagle Rock. If you go to Traildamage.com you can see the trails ans their ratings. My son has a Jeep XJ and there were lots of other jeeps...plus an awesome FJ joined us for the day. Lifted, 35" Baja MTZ, Lucrum winch bumber insert, rails, and custom skids. This thing was a beast and made the trails look easy. I will post pictures ASAP.

Id love to see a pic of that FJ! I love the Lucrum winch bumpers... Im kinda pissed because supposedly they dont make them anymore. Awesome idea for anyone who doesnt want to drag their winch with them everywhere they go.
