Do you know any good trails that are still open for a beginner (LJ 4" lift w/33's) that are close to town? I live in the SW Denver area.

Vids work. The LJ in snowy rocks looks good.

Check Colorado4x4.org. They have a bunch of helpful threads. Also, check traildamage.com

Chinamens is open. You can do as much or as little as you want. It's in Buena Vista though.

Chinamans Gulch was great. Walked down Carnage Canyon and that trail is absolutely insane. I don't think my Jeep is ready for it…it would be awhile before I took my Jeep up that trail. I did, however, kill my tail pipe AGAIN. I ended up unbolting it at the muffler and just ran it like that for the rest of the day. It was a very loud and annoying ride home. I'm just going to run a turn down for now. I'll reroute it again later.

Thanks! That's one of the perks to living in Colorado. Trails are so close and easily accessible.

Here's my one month old exhaust tip…


Here's my fix. I still need to have a hanger welded to the end. It's only supported by the transmission mount. It's not too loud and I'll just leave it like this for now.


I drug these things out of the shed…might start just rebuilding them and tinkering with them. The build plan is to slap some 5.38's in them, probably a detroit rear? or a Yukon Zip. I definitely want selectable. The future - I'd like to maintain a street-able rig on 40's and 17'' beadlocks.

Random question...yes I've searched.

I've seen a lot of short arm TJ/LJs with Dana 60s but I have yet to see a short armed TJ/LJ with a 14bolt. Anyone else?

I'll be doing a 14 bolt but it's going to be a long arm setup. IMO once you go over 4.5 inches you need a long arm. Couple that with the fact that the ring gear is huge on a 14 the only way to package it properly with the factory fuel tank is to have the ring gear shaved -that's probably why no one has done it. Might as well shave the housing as well while you're at it.
