I am fairly new to Colorado. I have been here for 2 years now. I sold my Jeep when I moved out here to pay for some expenses. Just got back into another one recently. I don't really know anyone on here. Just a bunch of guys with common interests. Jeeps.

Well, I do like it...but for $450 I figured there were better options. The whole carrier, both tub mounts and latch would need to be modified. I felt that the Exogate was a better buy.

Will do. I know there are quite a few guys on here hesitant to pull the trigger on this due to it being tub mounted. I plan to run the 35's on it and then 37's. I spoke with Gerald (Savvy) about it and he had no reserves about it at all. So that's good enough for me.

Got up this weekend to Wheeler Lake. LJ is performing exceptionally well. Everywhere I pointed it...it went. I do need gears BAD. The drive through the passes are painfully slow. From Dillon to Eisenhower Tunnel I had the Jeep in 4th gear and wide open throttle...barely holding 50 mph.

The silver LJ I was running with is running 4.88s and 37" KM2's and he tells me it's "stock like" but wishes he had 5.13s. That being said and the fact 37s and beadlocks are in the future...I'm going with 513s.

Awesome LJ. What grill guard do you have sitting on top of the Savvy front bumper? I like the look.

Good question. I don't really know but it's coming off soon. Somewhere down the road I'm going to ditch the cable for some rope and mount a LED light bar above the fairlead. I'd like to run a bolt on grill hoop but I can't seem to find anything I like. I really like the old Currie design but they don't make them anymore and the Trail Series Bolt on Hood Hoop and Stinger from GenRight isn't bad either...but I dont want a stinger...so I'm not sure what I'll do there.

You are getting your moneys worth out of the LJ , I wish I got out on the trails half as much as you do .

It's been great so far. Very limited maintainence and a great platform to start with. I'll do a few things here and there this winter...but this summer I'm just going to use it and enjoy it.

No wheelin' this weekend. Instead I went to a wine tasting with the lady and then took her hiking this morning to Lake Isabelle, CO.

I did however buy a few parts. I ordered up a Rancho HD steering stabilizer and installed that. Steering feels much better. Less wander and less jarring.

Found a guy on craigslist that was getting rid of some stuff so I scored a new Hi-Lift and 10lbs PowerTank.


I also ordered my first and last piece of equipment from Quadratec. I ordered the Sport Cage Hi-Lift Mount.

Hit Red Cone yesterday. I must say that if you ever come to Colorado and don't care to get too carried away with the wheelin' but want some very scenic...this is your trail. I saw stock JKUR's on this trails so it might be more appealing for the less hard core crowd.






A little short arm flex. Still all 4 tires on the ground. I have yet to see this Jeep fully articulated.

All these pictures make me realize I am not wheeling enough! Love that Colorado country. A lot like what I'm used to, and love, in Utah. Keep up the good word!
