Moving to Denver area...

So yea, moving up there Dec. 1st. Anything I should be aware of in the Mile High City prior to going there?

Am also looking for a good Jeep group/club out thataway, any recommendations? Hopefully I'll meet someone that's done a successful re-gear or two to give me a hand when I do mine in December

All that said, can't wait to romp around in the snow and rocks that Colorado offers, and finally gonna get to run EJS. Been a long time coming!

I would suggest you check out the Mile High Jeep Club to begin with and then check out trails at traildamage.com - there are a lot of smaller clubs once you find out what is going on in the area...btw, welcome to Gods Country. Oh, also check out co4x4.org for info.

Sounds like a plan. Yea, have frequented traildamage.com for a long time. Want to start my Colorado trail riding off with Saxon Mountain Rd. and branch off onto Spring Creek. May make it an overnight trip and spend a night up in the mountains But don't think much wheeling will come until after the snow goes poof. Will hit up co4x4.org next, and look into Mile High. Thank you good sir!

Now to find someone willing to give me a hand with the regear

Would look into it but I'm adamant on doing my own re-gear if I can't get an extra hand, I'll just trial and error it myself
As far as the snow goes, maybe once I get used to driving on all that slick stuff. Born and raised in South Louisiana, the white powdery cold stuff is new to me lol

It was kind of both. Just kidding, he is a great guy as most of the people you meet from here or in any offroad club.

ahah Sig worthy.... I call dibs!
That said, I can only hope I don't plow into the back of someone with my stinger. Think that would end up in the carnage thread
