April 20th

I am 99.9999% sure I am going to be able to get the XJ out Saturday April 20th...

Anybody available? I'm thinking something 1-2 hours away from Denver and mild-ish. Still open/open (probably this season) and still trying to brush up on my skillz.

Will do!

Any good trail ideas up North you can recommend?

Both ARB's are in the axles and ready, I just haven't made time to plumb them in and install my ARB compressor.

Re: April 20th

Sevenmile up north in Poudre canyon is pretty fun, there's 2 runs that I would say are hard, the rest is easy, if they still have snow it's fun. There's a gas station across the street from the trail too...

LOL - nowadays it's not for me - work is cray and the wife and I do long distance so she appreciates that I'm not wrenching in the garage when shes home lol. I did talk her in to going wheeling which I consider to be a win though! I got far enough along in my XJ build to be able to drive and wheel a little.

Cool! That sounds enticing, would you be in for seven mile?

My XJ is pretty well setup but it's currently open open and I don't have a winch (yet).

LMK your thoughts

Absolutely, down. You'll be fine, shouldn't need a winch at all, just a tow strap.
