New Guy From Colorado

Hi everyone! I have been looking for a Jeep forum and kept coming back to this one. I used to do a lot of off roading in the past but now I finally purchased my first Jeep back in November! I owned it for only 11 hours and already had it off road! I had to sell my diesel pick up and the wife new I always wanted a Jeep so I figured I'd go big or go home. I picked up a new 2016 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock in Tank Green. I didn't want to spend time later adding lockers, Dana 44's and such so I just go one already set up. I am in the process of adding the mods I want. I already have a few but I'm looking forward to the time I can add a wench, a lift kit and maybe 35's. The mods to customize your Jeep are endless!

A buddy of mine also has a Rubicon and we have trips planned for Telluride, Ouray and Moab. I'm hoping to do the Black Bear Pass Trail this year.

I'm looking forward to meeting up with some local people and go out on some trips. This forum has a ton of info and I'm hoping I can help contribute.

Will do! I'm looking forward to making some runs with a group of people.
I spent a day playing in Penrose Commons a few weeks ago. Not my favorite place to go to by far but it was closer than Ouray or Telluride for the day.

I also just put my hard top and doors back on after about a week of having them off for the first time. I couldn't have timed it better because just as I closed the tail gate and glass when I was done it started to rain.... I got lucky!

I think I sold a Jeep Rubicon to a neighbor! They have been waking by for a while now admiring mine and finally stopped and said hi. The saw the doors and top off and just couldn't resist. They said I sounded like a salesman...(maybe not good) and are planning on going out and getting a Rubicon. The wanted to know how hard it was to take off the doors and top...I showed them the boat wench pull system I rigged up and the cool tool kit the Jeep comes with. They were impressed! I tossed them my keys and offered them to take a test drive in mine.....they didn't but they will be back! The "Jeep" community is a unique and special one. Now I know what everyone is talking about.

If your wife is willing to let you have a wench, she's a lot more understanding than mine is! Good luck with that.

Convincing her was easy. I just told her that if I get stuck she would have to come and get me where ever I was.....she said...."get a wench" LOL The problem is the Warn Wench I want is about $1200. I think I can get what I need for about $400
