I hope not

Gonna try Home Depot before HF tomorrow. They might have the right-angle attachment cheaper. Less of a drive too

You done yet Jim? Get moving

Went up snowshoeing with my roommate and ex...even with snowshoes on it doesn't help sometimes:


How steep some of the stuff was:


And as our reward for making it to the top of our mountain peak, a nice warm fire. We were on ground here, but to the North/South of us were 8 ft drifts of snow


And I found out I can pose with snowshoeing as well as offroading

Yeah right, I am taking them to Astro. They will do them for $130 an axle if they are off the jeep and the shafts and brakes/backing plates are pulled. I figure much better price than $750 for them in the jeep.

Oh and yeah they are 4.56, lowest I can go in that 8.25.

Passenger side done - pretty cold and wet out there, and I've broken enough 1/8" bits for one day, so the driver will have to wait.



Could have jacked it up higher, but I was in the carport and didn't want to shatter my CB antenna - flexing it pretty hard, and kept having to adjust it's position.

Never realized how much muscle it takes to use a hi-lift once you get past 2.5 feet or so.

Looking good Jim. I have to ask though, what's the point of the rag on the jack? Afraid to scratch up your pretty rockrails?

Didn't want anything man-made to take off the pretty paint...that's reserved for rocks

Snowing like crazy now - driver side will definitely have to wait.

I assume Middle St. Vrain and Coney Flats are closed during the winter/unpassable?

Gillespie Gulch I hear is pretty icy
Johnny Park is probably closed
Holy Cross...mmmk, nevermind on that one...just going down the list of trails...

How about C.O.R.E.? I've personally never been there. Don't know if it would be worth it.
