Wheeling trail suggestions!

I need a trail guide for some good trails. 7 ish rating I want to get my Jeep fixed(not the zj, the one with bigger tires/lockers/etc) before Xmas hits. No off camber situations b/c of my carb but good rocks and rock crawling.

Eagle rock is about a 7 or 8 only one off camber spot but you can bypass it

I think eagle rock and saran wrap are tied with chinaman as my favorite trails so far. I think you should be fine on them

Me too

There are the Penrose trails, those would give your jeep a good workout. I don't quite get the off camber thing. If you are climbing large rocks you are by definition off camber. Why don't you just get a Holley offroad? They don't have any issue with off camber situations.

I can do a Saran wrap- eagle rock run of you want. I have run them a ton. Did eagle rock Sunday. They are becoming very tore up. Running the hard lines all the way thru it is a solid 7.5 right now. Saran wrap has one or two spots that are off camber and get you twisted up fairly well.

I never ran Saran wrap I can't find it.. Or maybe it's the other way around and I haven't ran eagle rock. But yes your right those those trails are going to hell.

Carnage BV and Chinaman's never closes. If you can run it, it is open. Snow or no snow. By the way there is no snow on them either.

I think we are agreeing. I an aware both chinaman and Carnage BV don't close. I am talking about Carnage Canyon, Boulder County that is permanently closed.

It's in Buena Vista with Chinaman Gulch. I might be game for a chinaman run that weekend depending on how the week before goes

FWIW, Carnage is an 9/10 rated trail, and the obstacles include stuff that'll get your nose way up in the air. We went with four really built rigs earlier this year - two made it through, two had to limp back. It's not very easy, especially carbed. Just pointing that out because I do up to a 7 in my TJ, but would never attempt Carnage (especially not carbed). TrailDamage.com - Carnage Canyon (BV) Chinaman (same parking lot), on the other hand - that's some fun, even with a carb, and it's nice and long.

Be careful heading out to cut your tree. You need a permit, AND you can't just cut anywhere. In Colorado, here are the links for where you can cut...US Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Region - Front Range Christmas Tree Cutting Information

Sweet! How much is a permit? Whats the fee getting caught?
Anyway I am not testing my carb upgrade on Carnage I am building my jeep up for 2 trails Holy Cross(fuck far) and Moab. However I am looking for a good difficult trail and plan to run it here in 1/2weeks here. Hitting snow also is not a prob with me. Im from Idaho we have more snow.

Ha getting caught... Not something you want to do. The Colorado Dow will basically bend you over...

Mel Wade from offroad evolution put it best when describing carnage canyon. "This is a nasty ass trail and I know my jeep will not look the same after." Do not run it unless you plan on an average of 1000 dollars damage.

You know Carnage is a hard and nasty trail when it has an obstacle with a name like "Can Opener" The exit is about a 6 to 10 foot wall of rock that is almost vertical. Chinaman's on the other hand is a more doable trail for a modified Jeep.
