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.

What dates are you thinking?

Owen_TJ 10-02-2011 06:09 PM

I'm in, depending on the dates anyway...

topher38 10-02-2011 08:17 PM

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

Jarnel 10-02-2011 08:52 PM

Im in the same newbie situation but I'd really like to go

Owen_TJ 10-02-2011 10:53 PM

Noobs should be just fine, and like he said...we can always pull you out if needed! No biggie...

Sounds good though chris...where's the jeep, again???

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) :hide:

Owen_TJ 10-02-2011 11:57 PM

Damn, man...that's awesome! Its gonna look great when its back

topher38 10-03-2011 12:06 AM

bluedemon82384 10-03-2011 05:55 AM

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.

Jarnel 10-03-2011 09:49 AM

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

Jarnel 10-03-2011 07:54 PM

Ok cool ya I can go just whenever the dates are confirmed

topher38 10-03-2011 11:55 PM

topher38 10-04-2011 11:42 AM

Owen_TJ 10-04-2011 12:57 PM

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.
