    Are any friends here masters in the craft of cab mount chops? Would like to get it done before my new tires are out on. Hoping not to spend 300 at a fabrication place to get it done! Thanks in advance! Also I’m in the Littleton area. Will provide beer!

    I am now thinking of just parking in my reserved spot off the street, putting wheel chocks behind the rear wheels, removing the LCAs and leaving it sit there hiding from my HOA and their "NO WORKING ON VEHICLES" rules. Then walking a few blocks over to the NAPA near me. It's a weird NAPA though - not a parts store, but a garage.

    That and you'd be one of those people with annoying "WHITE" aka BLUE headlights from the stupid color temps on all of the LEDs on the market. 4500K FTW.

    I've only run 5500K so far on my retrofits. I know some people might find that too blue but there are bluer options like 6500K.

    I'd like a SnugTop too. But I picked my Leer 100 up for $200 on Craigslist. So far it's done the job. The $$ can go to front bumper, or Tundra brake upgrade, or armor, or ...

    FWIW, DEET is so yesterday.

    Do yourself a favor and get Sawyer Picaradin. Best price I've seen has been on Amazon.

    10 day canoe trip in the border waters of Ontario Canada (think Minnesota skeeters, only worse), and I had only two bites all week. The Sawyer picaradin is greaseless, odorless, and won't melt nylon. I prefer the lotion. But the spray stuff (get the pump) works too.

    Am I wrong to think Imogene wasn't that bad? Like, in the terms that I'm not sure how these people got off the shelf?

    Carelessness. The idea of I don't have to pay attention because this trail is easy. Trying to pass in dumb spots. General lack of experience. Swing back around to carelessness for good measure.
    The older couple went off in a spot where they were too close to edge, likely due to the heavy traffic. Instead of waiting for a better spot or making it work, they went too far.
    The raptor, I don't know. That's not a skinny part or the trail. Generally most folks run the rocks that would be to the driver side (right in the pic). Not sure how that happened.

    I agree that Imogene is not that bad. The article states the man and woman are 72 years old. My guess at the cause is the driver had a sudden health issue.

    It's not. My best guess is that speed was a factor.

    Heading out to Kingston Peak Monday with my brother, brother in law, and their wives. I finally talked my wife into joining me on her first off road excursion. @johntoyota you will be happy to hear that I WILL be airing down to 18psi for her comfort.

    Anyone seeing the reports of Poughkeepsie being closed indefinitely because of locks being cut?

    15 will probably be more comfortable. Maybe you're on softer tires but I hated going over rocks and such at 17psi. The truck pitches left and right way to much for my liking. 13psi seems to be the sweet spot for my tires.

    I saw that from a local, but not in official posts. The official posts say the gate is now being shut since folks went off trail around the slide. I shared this in the trail status thread.
    Screenshot_20190818-124028.jpg

    ETA: the guy that runs the ouray exploration page seems to be the source of the idea it's closed indefinitely as in long term.His post went off on a tangent where he was saying a lot of things I haven't seen as founded yet. Talked to some folks at local FS and they stood behind the official post, and hinted his post was a bit far reaching. We will see. We knew weeks ago they weren't ever going to open Poughkeepsie. So honestly not surprised they closed the gate, more surprised it took this long and asshats decided to do what asshats do, go off trail because stuff is blocking the trail. But that's an old dead horse topic. There was vehicles turned in, with pics, to San Miguel sheriff that were off trail in the area pictured. They 'appologized' and sheriff let it be at that. Not sure if it's because they were out of state, or what. But feel like fines should have been issued. Another company from out of state playing the ' I didn't know ' card and getting away with it.

    If you've got time, you should try to hike James peak. I think it's less than a mile and a half each way and a great view of the lakes from up there.

    Morning folks, would anyone know of an easy-moderate trail that is within a 1 hour drive of Denver that has a ghost town? We have some friends visiting and was thinking this might be a cool thing to do.
