    So I did try a bit of the Kokopelli. When I turned off after you aired up, thats where it hits 128 again. I followed that for about 3 miles (nice graded). About 2 miles in, there was a creek crossing that was washed out. Thankfully it was somewhat solid although it was off camber and steep but I made it. Had it been much wetter, it could've been a mess. Then hit a point where you are on a shelf road that doesn't look like it had been traveled in a while. Just from my seat I could see it looked a little washed out and some big rocks on it. I didn't feel like trying that alone since I was trying to get home on Tuesday evening.

    I jumped off then followed the side highway that runs south of I70 and cut back to the Kokopelli somewhere between Agate and Westwater. It jumped on a paved road before getting back on dirt. At that point it was mostly slow and rocky so I wasn't thrilled. Followed it for a while and took my next chance to exit and popped out by the Westwater Airport just west of the CO border.

    So Kokopelli seems fine other than Rose Garden Hill. But, it held a bit of water even when I was on it. So if there has been a bit of rain or snow recently, expect to make a mess. TOTW you'll definitely want a spot, and may have to stack rocks where the taller ledges have been rutted out. But as long as you do the right side of the lolipop as an out and back, theres only one or two spots where you'd have to worry about that. Run the full lolipop and from what i've been told... you'll do it a lot more.

    Yeah going up rgh was interesting. Rear was pretty easy on the loop we took. Plus you’re trdor right @bot102 ? You’ll be plenty fine if so. As long as you don’t aim for big ledges on TOTW you’ll be gravy.

    Yeah will do. Trying to play it out so my dad can tag along on this one. May will probably be a nogo for me since I'm going on a 2 week road trip/camping trip

    I'm impressed with you ability to quote my post from over a year ago.

    But to answer your question, no I have not found a solution. I just take my license plate off when I tow my trailer. I never found a product that was specifically made to cover a hitch with a license plate using existing holes on a spring loaded hinge.

    My last truck had a CBI bumper and they just tack welded a piano hinge on. It was steel and the inside of the hinge rusted and it totally siezed up. My plan is to just bolt an aluminum hinge on and then put the license plate on that. It won't be during loaded, but it will be convenient.

    Because nothing says I’m impressed and promotes friendly, helpful and worthwhile conversation like being a total dick right out of the gate.

    Shit I'm surprised when people quote things that are more than a day old.

    And i think it might've been a compliment.

    I quoted something the other day that I think was 2 years old. Sometimes you dig into a search (that people get blasted for not doing) and stumble on something old that you have a question about.

    This guy I’m pretty sure is just a dick.

    @Stig - Buying crocs is like buying DENSO/OEM electronics vs this walmart special would be buying some knockoff on ebay and having problems the rest of your life.

    Damnit, keep forgetting to post this.

    Anyone interested in the mushroom rally karting at k1 karting in Littleton?

    https://www.mushroomrally.com/denver

    It's the next two weekends (not this weekend)

    I bought a ticket months ago and I'll be out of town. I can transfer it through eventbrite for $2.50 to anyone else, or they said you basically just need the qr code to get in. It originally cost $60 for the ticket so I'd rather someone get to use it vs being completely wasted.

    Is there any interest in harder trails? Colorado or Moab. Nothing crazy. Just more challenging than I usually see. OCG, spring creek, or the like for Colorado. Or like metal masher, Moab rim, pickle/mashed potatoes ?
    Just seeing if for runs like that if I should post up or not.

    Dunno about harder CO trails. But I definitely want to do Moab rim. I'm not lifted as much as most guys and don't have HC front/rear but have armor. Need to pick up a rear dif skid though

    If anyone does end up wanting to join, I'll be heading out Thursday night and getting to camp in Tombstone Butte late late. Pretty sure the plan is to run to Crystal Geyser on Friday, White Wash Sand Dunes Saturday then head to Sego Canyon/Book Cliffs. More of an overland type deal than real rock crawling, but I expect there will be plenty of fun obstacles along the way.
