I'd love to move out there soon but for now Im stuck in Chicago because of the down housing market. Take way too much of a hit if I sell my properties right now. I don't mind road trips though, they are always an adventure!!! That's why I did up the interior so its money for long drives. Its great having entertainment for people in my ride so they chill out and let me drive...

Where you at in Chicago?
Nice, that makes much more sense. I used to live in Ukrainian Village but I didn't really like living in a huge city with no outdoor activities other than soccer and bball. Quit my job and moved to Denver. Went to A Basin today and couldn't be happier with that decision. The addition of a WJ in November really helps too

Ughhhh Im sooo Jealous!!! Denver is sick!!!!! Hopefully Il be out there in a few years. I am part of a ski share in Silverthorne so I spend quite a bit of time there. I also have a bunch of friends in Vail, Beav, Park City, Silverton, and Jackson Hole so I couch surf with them a lot too!! Trying to figure out my next journey out there as we speak... Hopefully Il do a week or two here by the end of Jan but Im still trying to work out the details.

im from RI, but spent a week out in Utah last winter. We stayed in New Park City. Brighton and Solitude were sick! I would recommend Alta but i think you are a snowboarder right? But Solitude and Brighton you cant go wrong with. amazing. anyways, back to your Jeep. As i said, im completely jealous of it, and it looks amazing. We have the exact same Jeep(if they were both stock) except for your stock rims. i just put 8K HIDS in yesterday and i love them. i was pumped to finally have lowbeams that i could see with.

You got any pics of your ride? Do you ever hit up JHOLE? I love it up there!!! I actually two sets of "stock" wheels that I had on depending on which your referring to. Had these really ugly ones when I bought it(pic with my old ar230 boat), then I swapped those for the 02 laredo stock alloys(pic with the chicago skyline in back) from my moms jeep right before she sold it. Did you buy projector housings with your HID's? I just ordered new CCFL halo housings and a 6K HID kit for mine. Cant wait to get them and throw em in!! Id love to see some photos of yours!!

I'm still jealous of your Jeep. It's a very well rounded Dub with lots of nice touches. It just looks stout and refined at the same time. I don't snowboard or ski, but I do like going up to Colorado as often as possible. It's usually during the summer when I can camp, hike, and wheel. Sometime we need to meet up. Though your Jeep puts mine to shame. We could always trade.

We'll if any of you guys are out in CO, hit me up. Jeep should be rocking the OME lift + some 30.5s in the next few weeks. Love snowboarding, camping, hiking, light wheeling so I doubt there would be lack of stuff to do

Your Jeep looks really good, those wheels are awesome, they give a beasty look to your rig. Just a question about your rain guards, are they mounted the wrong way or not, i mean they look like they're upside down, maybe it's a choice??

Pretty much downtown. 25th and Clarkson. I have the epic pass so I can choose from Vail, Beav, A Basin, Keystone, and Breck. I go up just about every weekend at least for a day. Let me know whats up!

Why only 30.5's with the lift? Isn't it 3"? What tires are you looking at?

I've never been rafting before. It might be fun. I'd drive a lot more if I had your Jeep, btw. It looks like a cruisin' machine.
