    I'm interested even though I got nothing that will make the drive. Maybe I can be the tag along photographer.
    Never blame the beer. It's only there to lend a hand.

    I'm definitely interested... Not sure If I'd actually drive the Jeep all the way out there (not sure I wouldn't) but I've been wanting to visit CO and take my oldest to see my brother out there, I could probably borrow a Jeep there and head to Moab.

    I would love to hit some of those trails again. Took the Xterra there when it was new.

    Are these pictures from around Ouray? I attempted Imogene Pass on the way home from Moab and it looks like this. My bike wouldn’t run at elevation and I had to call it quits before finishing it. It was just a stop on the way home and I wasn’t about to try and find parts to re-jet the carb.

    As much as I would absolutely love to take another trip out west, I’ll have to sit this one out. Between not having a trail rig and having a baby, I don’t see another Moab trip in my near future. Some day I’ll build a nice family wheeler but for now I don’t have the time or place to do it.

    Yeah the big group shot is the top of Imogene Pass. I think one or two others are. A few are from Black Bear Pass too.

    That’s still not checked off the bucket list so one of these days I’ll go back out there. You can take an old steam engine from Durango to Silverton which looked like an amazing trip too. Lots of cool old ghost towns in that area. The terrain wasn’t really difficult in Colorado but the scenery was awesome! It was 101 degrees in Moab when we left and I was riding in the snow when we left Ouray and headed up the mountain (the next day). My entire trip was planned 2 weeks before we left. I was bullshitting with my buddy about going and just said let’s do it. I knew winter was about to hit in the mountains so we went before it really hit. Best trip of my life!

    Geez... looks like the Ramcharger could make that. It's a Magnum, so, WOOT!
    '07 Commander - 2" Daystar lift, 32x17x10 Cooper ATPs, Flowtech exhaust, aFe CAI
    '92 Dodge Ramcharger - 4 1/2" lift, 35's, 318 Magnum... a work in progress...

    I went out to Sedona Arizona last spring, rented a Jeep while there, and did every trail I could find. I am dying to go west again and think about it constantly. My family knows Utah or CO are next on the list for sure. That being said I think our trips are all planned elsewhere this year, so west may have to wait till 2022.
    Not 100% sure if either of my 4x4s would make the haul as of this second without a good once over, but I sure would give it hell; that would be part of the adventure!

    I am hoping to get back to hitting local ish trails more often this year. And if I wasnt the worst ever at adding pics Id share some from AZ.
