One last trail run before they are snow packed

Hey everyone. I would like to run a trail or two somewhere within the first two weeks of November if anyone is down let me know I haven't decided on trails yet but I was thinking maybe all three of the gulches off of rampart range rd. But who knows. As of right now I'm pretty sure I have three people that are in....

Going
myself

Maybe going
Owen_tj
And another guy with a 4 runner

Is this something that a total newb with zero mods and no off-roading experience could do? Or would someone with experience and mods be better situated for this? I'd like to hit some trails in my jeep but I've never gone and my jeep is just the same as it was when I got it used in 07.

It all depends on the trails we do. And the amount of snow. I think you will be ok at the gulches but I have never personally been there. But worst case scenario I have a winch. Or you could ride with one of us others.


Update....

Maybe comming..

And a guy I kno with a jk.

I'm not quiet sure yet. It all depends on when I get my jeep back it will be sometime at the start of November. So I was thinking either the first or second Sunday. I'll have to wait to see if I have hockey on one of those two Saturday's if not we can go then

Yes I'm more than glad to use my winch every now and then. And worse case if it gets to rough for a stocker. I'm sure someone can give you a ride


My jeep is getting a face lift by the make a wish foundation....
New fenders
New bumpers/rock sliders
35's
1inch body lift
New paint
Bed-liner
New lights
And something else but I forgot.... (fail)

Put me under the maybe going, it will depend on the dates and when you can give the dates so I can put in to get the day off from work. I really want to go though, so I'll be trying really hard to make that happen.

It's just south of Denver correct? Rampart range road. I might have a 91 jeep Cherokee by November that would probably be better for this trip. Or if I can get my wrangler upgraded then that would be even better.

Yes sir the trails I would like to do are up kinda by divide tho. You would go I-25 to highway 24.

Go look on traildamage.com. The trail names are hacket gulch once you click on it will tell you bout the other 2. I think one is called long water gulch but I could be wrong

Oh Jeeze umm. I would say gears and and tires. But you don't have any lift or aftermarket fenders so I guess gears then maybe a small lift or fenders and 31s or maybe 32s I don't kno how much money you have laying around if I knew that i could help out more

I could work with 2500 and currently i have 31s with no lift and it would be cool if i could have assistance with the installation maybe because i wish i had a bottemless wallet lol.
