If this is an open invite I’d love to hit Cascade with you gents on Friday. I hit Devils Canyon in my JLUR this summer that’s right down the road from there. I dig wheeling in that area.

I didn’t organize it, but you’re welcome if I have any say. Nice setup. We have that same tent I believe. SB Gen1 XL?

Thanks! Yep, Same tent. CC is getting a dusting of snow on weds but it doesn’t look significant. Looks like there may be some additional wear and tear on the trail this year per the trail off-road report making a bit more difficult than normal. Let me know. I’m in either way.

I did it with our stock height JTR in mid October and it wasn’t bad. We should avoid going down Saxon Mtn Rd towards Georgetown though and either back track or take one of the other routes out. I’ve got a good CO trail map, but it sounds like you may know the area better than me.

Anybody can come along.
I am 3/4 the way through my lift. Need to hit an alignment shop after. Get the caster and everything checked out. Right now I have a pre runner. Front done. Shocks wired.
Need to do rear springs, shocks and upper and lower control arms.

Noticeable difference between Rubicon shocks and Clayton.

Oh damn. That’s it. That’s all I’ve got. Oh damn.

Edit: I was wrong. I wasn’t done. Your wheels look smaller.

Yeah. @FR33DOM runs the same lift and 37s. I can go to bump stops without rubbing now.
Ordered a relocation bracket for my front brake lines. And had a vent tube bust so going to extend and replace that.

@Waggs put a lift and 37s on that diesel! I'd be curious to see what you try with that.

Here you go. I look like an angry dodge at the moment.
So I was running Rubicon take offs and a front Terraflex Spacer. (will be seeing them soon)
Front is the Clayton 2.5 on my sport S with mopar 3 piece, warn winch and plate, bull bar, and lights.
Rear is stock Rubicon on a sport S.

Done and aligned. Did bust a front vent tube. I have one on order so no water fording this weekend.

Looks good! Definitely a change in weather between your morning and evening photos. I can't do any major upgrades until at least January or until a couple of stocks I have rebound, but I really want the adjustable shocks. I'm probably keeping the 33s until I need new tires then I'll decide if I want to go to 35s. I'm also looking at some of those ebay steel bumpers I've seen posted on here before. I'm also looking at some major interior mods possibly.

I ran 35s with the Terraflex spacer and the Rubicon take offs. I'll be selling them now.

The 3.5 Falcons are nuts. I set them to the softest setting and I can pop between firm and sort with the flip of a switch.

Ok let's firm this trip up. @FR33DOM sounds like his is in. @Summitdan may be in. @Chargingstar working? @Waggs has family in town. @Stsdroog in? @Offroadnewbie ?

Let's decide on a place and time for tomorrow. I'm aligned. Driving good. Just won't do deep water due to the vent. I'll try and pop it together tomorrow.

I should be in. I’m planning on it. If there was any snow near Idaho springs, it should be gone as it’s sunny with high in the 40’s today. High in 50’s tomorrow there. Also sunny.
