A little mud on the Commando today... went to Moab from Salt Lake the fun way...





Road doesn't look to bad but in spots it was pretty nasty and you didn't want to stop... at one point a Deer ran out in front and stopped for a minute but there was no way I was stopping... he jumped off and disappeared into the woods..

I love all the good looking CG JKs.

After a year of informally taking polls on the roads I still think we have a pretty unique color. I've only seen a handful of them on the roads here in NE FL.

I did track it with my GPS and will post it... once I convert it to a jpg... I can also send you a GPX of it if you'd like....

Basically we took the Alpine Loop to Heber City (see pictures below..)
from Heber city we took HWY 40 towards Duschene, just after Fruitland we took Red Creek Rd south towards the Strawberry Pinnacles. Then Timber Canyon RD, this can be hard turn to fined... and this can get REALLY slippery when wet... our Jeep did pretty good but there were several miles of road that was just mud/ruts were you really don't want to stop.. then Reservation Ridge RD, this area was lot drier, which is a good thing because it starts climbing and if it were slippery we probably would have turned around... no room for error and sliding off the road in some spots.. the road does have more rock here but still use caution if wet! Reservation Ridge RD turns into Indian Head RD, to HWY 191.. HWY to Moab from here. This is part of the Utah back country discovery route. Utah Backcountry Discovery Route (UTBDR)


Alpine Loop - Utah

Commando Green on green

Finally made it all the way up an old local abandoned New England road!! Back in April we tried this but turned around because, as Frau Blücher says, it can be very treacherous! This time we had a winch, and though we almost got stuck a couple of times, didn't have to use it. Parts of the "road" were completely washed out, just a lot of loose boulders that made the steep parts more than a little scary!

Nice trails. I have a CG Rubicon but live in South Florida. The trails suck down here and water management, NPS and Game Commision don't let you have access to any decent area without getting a fine. But I still have my Ruby, just in case a hurricane comes in and also for driving in the mean streets of Miami. Lol

Do you think Commando green had it a little confused?

Did you have them professionally painted or did you do it yourself?

Since those wheels have a factory offset, are you using spacers? Great looking wheels BTW.

I've priced that wheel, but they're expensive, running around 180-190 a wheel.

You can buy these rims new for around $89.00 from Chrysler Dealers. If you know where some old Jeep Cherokees are these were the steel rim for the full size spare tire so in that case you can get them REALLY CHEAP.

These wheels completely change the character of the vehicle.

Hey Tom do those wheels happen to have a manufacture stamp on them? I would love to find them in a 15.

So we have put two road trips on our new Jeep one to Colorado 1200 miles and one to Utah, half business half vac, 1700 miles. In three minths its already has 43## miles. So far we are really happy with our upgrade and our build. This past weekend I went out and flexed the Jeep to its max (actually got it rocking on two wheels, did get video of it) wasn't trying to but since it was in a safe no roll spot why not.
There are a few trade offs from a 2DR to a 4DR but it was well worth it.
