Hello everyone!

I'd like to add my name to the ranks of new Colorado Jeep wheelers. I've driven Wranglers, specifically 2 TJs, for most of my life, and now it's time I started enjoying them off road. My current '03 came to me pretty well built, with 33s and a lift, so at this point I'm really just playing catch up! This forum has helped me a great deal with that, especially in the equipment and how-to sections. I don't consider myself all that mechanically minded, but every time I poke around here and then crawl under the Jeep it seems like I learn something new.

I've been able to start with Rollins Pass from the West side, which was a blast of a starter trail (and also taught me the pros of airing down...). More recently were Black Bear and Imogene Passes, both of which were nothing short of amazing. I can't wait to get back to that side of the state and hit Engineer and Ophir, then the other side of Rollins, etc, etc... the ever growing list! Time will tell what I can and can't squeeze in before the snow takes over.

Anyhow here's the star of the show, up on top of Black Bear, just before starting the switchbacks.

Welcome and nice rig, I love Colorado and wouldn’t mind moving down there, actually thinking of moving to Grand Junction in a few years.

So I'm going to have to assume you know @jjvw, @tworley, and all the others? You Colorado folks are taking over!

Awesome photo! I think if I could live one place, it might be Colorado. Unfortunately it's priced so high now that there's no way I could swing it. Wishful thinking though.

Welcome to the fold..
Judging by what we've seen and know about Colorado, I'm sure there will be more pics of you venturing out in your wonderful back country....and we'd say yes bring it on please. 😁

Will you guys adopt me and move me to Colorado. I am jealous of the views and type of trails you get versus my muddy forest trails I got here ;)

Thanks guys! We've only been in this state a few months and we're already loving it!

Grand Junction is a bit lacking in the green foliage I prefer, but was still nice during our visit!

I actually don't know hardly anybody out here just yet, but looking to change that! Having come from FL, the prices out here aren't much higher than we're used to. That doesn't make them cheap though!

Count on it! The next few might be snowcovered by the looks of it though...

Sounds great to me! I need to meet some like-minded friends in this new land...

Sorry, we've already got too many furry "children" to look after. Maybe if our cats go to college out of state? Haha

Thanks! Bummer I missed it though.
