    I love that area...there's so many small little mining communities that used to exist in that network of trails. I'm not sure if that caved in section is part of the Tip Top mine, or Golden Cycle mine, but it is on Jenny Lind - Perigo trail just off off Gamble Gulch/Missouri Gulch road, south of Rollinsville. IIRC, we ran the a loop starting from Pickle Gulch around Dakota hill before winding up back there.

    Here's some of the history on Perigo that sparked my interest in the area. The guy who bought it gave a big F-you to Gilpin county when he bought it and they demanded he pay property taxes on each and every dilapidated structure, so he filled the buildings with dynamite and blew up the town. No buildings = no taxes.

    Gamble Gulch road is a 1-2 rated graded dirt road. some of the other trails range to like a 3-4 difficulty but nothing too sketchy.

    Anyone do mechanic work on the side?

    I have a new pinion seal, u joints, and carrier bearing, shocks, and swaybar links for my truck and after looking at the parts on the shelf for the last month I'm not feeling up to it.

    Well I’ve had an Astro/ATC for 20 years and it’s served me well but the door design doesn’t lend itself to keeping water/dust out very well in the corners. Not to mention I’d have to reinforce the fiberglass if I ever wanted to mount load bars up there. Which a canoe is going to need.

    Plus I like how the snug top forms over the bed rail to keep water out.

    I don’t know. If I can find a decent one cheap on Craigslist but Finding a color match one is going to be difficult

    My great uncle was a hoarder and passed away a few years ago. I helped the family (multiple trips out to Phoenix in 110 degree heat) to carry engine blocks, distributors, dashes, carpets, seats, everything out of the basement, barn, house... That photo is no joke. Don't get that deep into hoarding parts.

    None of the other brands look #EAF with the roof tubes that the Snugtop has.

    Use the stock bottle jack to press them out. It should fit inside the arm to push them out.
