thanks for the reply's.....
i am playing $3K+ in property taxed on a 1000 SQ ft condo here by the jersey shore which i think it just nuts.
and i dont even have a driveway or a garage!! just a parking lot.....and a 4x15 mulch bed to maintain..

a few ?? came to mind since the orignal post....
1. whats the average property tax on townhouses/condos if i were to buy? or monthly payment if i were to rent?
2.vehicle registration fees?
3. strict motor vehicle inspection/laws (lift/tires/tint...ect)?
4. if i find a job making my current $40k in "jersey dollars" would that be enough "Colorado dollars" to get by out there?


some of my basic needs would be.....
1- 1 or 2bed condo/townhouse type thing in a lifted jeep friendly area. close to some jeep clubs/trails
2- driveway/garage-- i have a TJ and a F150 that would be coming with me, driveway would be nice, garage ever nicer. basically somewhat safe parking for both of them...
3- 15-20 min drive to shops like food, clothes, hardware stores ect....maybe like 40/45 min to most industry/job areas...
4- single dude friendly....

cant afford a mc mansion in the mountains.... but at the same time dot wanna be hanging out with crackheads either..... just some "normal" run of the mill areas to look further into...

Wtf are you thinking?
There's no shortage of pines in CO - other than aspens, pines (w/fir, spruce & and a few cedar) are about the only trees that will grow in the mountains which comprise 2/3 of the state. Trees with leaves (instead of needles) are in short supply around here!

You can find mud if you know where and when to look for it in the mountains between Spring thaw and Summer heat - teenagers and Easterners (damnyankees) generally use it to tear up the trails and get them closed

If you'll take the Tread Lightly pledge, we might let you move here...despite newracer's comments, I'm sure there are plenty of empty condos in his town!

I got your back. I was born in Mahwah, NJ, grew up in upstate NY, moved to CO when I was 25. No place else I'd rather call home. For work, check out indeed.com. Parts of the Denver metro are ok to live in. Personally, I love the western slope.
Decide what you want and work at it to make it happen.
CO cost of living can be high but it's better than the eastern seaboard.

1) $1500 for $250,000 condo. Rent depends on the city...
2) New Jeep runs around $500 for the first year. My '04 is around $185 now.
3) No real vehicle inspections like the East coast has. Every 2 years is emissions where you need less than a 34" tall tire to fit on the rollers. There are tint laws, and denver city (proper) has fender laws.
4) Sure, as long as you live in the right area and are responsible with your money.

Denver proper fender laws are rarely, if ever enforced. I should technically have flares, but I've never been popped when driving to work.

OP: Inspections here are nowhere near what Jersey does. Tilt Table isn't even in their vocabulary. Just smog.

nice, i just had to pay $200 for my two year inspection sticker. i am just "over" the limit for the yearly tilt test they have here in jersey. (RE3.5,1BL and 35's) thats a plus i would not have to worry about that.

now if i were to tint the drive and passenger front windows in the f 150 would that be "against the law" out there like it is here?

in doing some searching home/townhome prices seam super cheap compared to jersey the things going for a house listed for$190k out there would just about be $320k here. and the highest property tax i have seen on that same style house is $1500/year, out here in jersey it would be more like $8500/year!

can anyone post areas of that state where local jeep clubs meet? that may help me in decided which area to pick..... more jeepers = more better!

As far a Jeep clubs or people go, pick a spot. They're everywhere. I think there are at least 4 clubs on the west slope and several on the front range. Then there's Traildamage.com, an online club (good peeps btw) and colorado4x4.org

nice... the water jobs that i was looking at applying for were located in lakewood co. so right now i am thinking about that area more or less.....

also still debating if i should try to land a job out there first.... or just pack up shop and go out there once my place sells and with what ever money i have in my pocket, do what needs to be done to make it work....

Personally, I would job hunt first. Moving without tackling employment first is a risky proposition, these days.

John's 4x4 is overpriced and has an attitude, but they are good at bolting on stuff.
