June 1 OCG

I keep seeing videos of what looks like a giant rock garden hat people are crawling over is that obstacle an optional one?

Without seeing specifically what video, it’s hard to answer.
It there is an obstacle called rock pile. Yes it’s optional.

Good deal ... I got very little time to work on my rig , so I'm just going to rent a trailer the first couple runs rather than worry about axle swapping my trailer first .

Re: June 1 OCG

FYI a few folks may run carnage and catch us on the trail. Right now I have roughly 4 rigs including myself in the Chinamens run as a more than maybe.

Are you running carnage also or just chinamans? Never been up here before Iím guessing to run carnage 33s probably wonít cut it?

Re: June 1 OCG

There might be a total of 3 rigs in Colorado chapter currently that could run carnage. None of them are attending.

33ís and lockers can run any trail in Colorado, you-of-course need to be a driver. But nonetheless.

That is about as inaccurate of info as Iíve seen in a while. Most trails? Sure. And ask anyone around, Iím usually the one known for cramming small rigs up trails. However there are a ton of trails in Colorado where 33ís wonít get you in the entrance.

It's kinda like folks who say you can easily run 40s on stock axles as long as you know how to drive ... ;-)

I disagree, ask a jk rubicon owner. Xj, long arms, lockers, 4 link rear, belly armor, sliders, winch, 33ís will do any trail in Colorado.

Not saying itís easy. 4Ē difference -give or take, 6Ē lift tops with 33ís, perfect geometry, hell, throw in those tons. Good gears and transfer case... Itíll go anywhere. Point and shoot. Do big tires make it easy, absolutely. Weíre not talking about a cherry Creek xj on 33ís. Put 33s on a comp buggy and itíll Do ANY trail here. Colorado isnít the holy grail of wheeling, by any means. Itís good but not the ultimate test. Hell, just to the west of us... light years better. 33ís and lockers can do any trail in Colorado

Youíre either a troll or a complete idiot. At age isnít even hard comparatively to whatís out here in the west. Penrose is even whatever comparatively.
This isnít showing the gypsum trails. This is two of the 7 trails in Montrose you wouldnít make the entrance on, gtfo with the bullshit.
