This weekend is put for sure it's been raining alot this week down here and it's been snowing alot up there. Baldy prolly got a good foot over the last three days and it's suppose to snow tomorrow. So depending on next week is if I'm going up or not. Since I don't have a winch or any recovery tools I don't want to get stuck

CO RD 379 is a real easy to almost simple trail. I haven't made it all the way top yet though so I'm not entirely sure what the last couple of miles is like. But the beginning will be a good test a a stock jeep because of one rock and ground clearance but for the res of the trail that I kno about a stock jeep can do it easy. Depending on the amount of snow. Which as of right now from looking at the top, there could be a good foot or more on the trail. What mods do you have or are you stock? Let me kno and I can see when I can go. Is Thursday your only day off?

Alrighty, apparently we didnt do the lift today...

i had to do the March for Dimes/March for Babies walk this morning for the bank i work for so i didnt have the time to drop my vehicle off and have someone get me...

So...its being done next saturday at 8am. Good thing is that doing it next week gave me the time to order the tires i wanted first instead of getting my second choice BFG At/Ko's.

5 tires will be at my door tuesday and i'm running the Falken Rockey Mountain ATS's

Saturday should be a good day lol...get the lift on (currently sitting in the back of the jeep), oil change, mount and balance, and the alignment done.

Its worse than waiting for Christmas when i was 8...

I'm hoping the guy will be done with everything around 1 in the afternoon...i work 8-12noon saturday anyway so hopefully i can swing over to pick it up after work.

Hoping it all goes well and it looks good! Took me awhile to decide on this setup so hopefully the 32's will look as good as i think they're gonna (i didnt wanna go with 33's)

Not quite sure how i'm gonna get the tires over there though haha.

Think i can fit 5 32x11.5x15 tires and a lift kit in the back of the jeep? Only good thing is i dont have a rear seat so it might be possible haha.

**if you're wondering why, i took it out shortly after i bought it and sold it. Tons more room for stuff as well as my dogs. Plus, i dont have to give anyone rides since i sold the seatbelts too!

of course!!! Its because i like there to be a little extra space in the wheel well than what a 33 gives...

to me, it looks like a 33 is kind of stuffed in there with just a 3" lift...espeically with the type of flare i have.

Right now my tire is about a 29" and i love the space it gives between my flares...so, a 3" lift would keep the same space with a 3" larger tire...a 32...

I'm hoping it looks as good in real life as i think it will in my head...guess i'll find out saturday!

If you guys ever want to run through anything a bit closer to Littleton, let me know.

I typically work during the weekends, school on weekdays. But during the summer I could go more often.

And I live on Coalmine and Kipling, or pretty much between C470&Bowles and C470&Wadsworth

went up there yesterday... thanks for tellin me about it man, well have to go up one day together. it was kinda last minute we decided to go down there.






got stuck once but trustworthy winch got me out, in one of the mud holes up there its rutted out pretty bad and basically bottomed out. didnt go all the way to the top but turned around at a spot that was pretty much there could see the trail that snaked around to the top but it was 7 by then so we turned around and headed home.
