    Jace (lotsoftoys) and I met up with some toyota guys up at holy cross this past saturday...what a sick trail! met up around 7am to air down and catch up...made it up to french creek around 1030am and stayed there til around 330pm watching numerous rigs going through the creek..not a bad way to spend a sunny saturday in the rocky mountains!

    full album can be found here...http://s106.photobucket.com/albums/m260/hollidayinn/Holy%20Cross%20Trail%208-13-11/

    [​IMG]

    nice rigs, most likely $100k+ but talk about douchebags...they didn't understand the whole concept of "stay on the trail"

    more to come on this later....


    saw this nice rig on our way out

    [​IMG]



    that's all she wrote...great time with the guys..glad i was able to run the trail with who i did..

    Nice, looks like a lot of fun! Good job with the pics.
    Supposedly the previous owner of my '84 took it to Holy Cross. Really looks like all he did was beat it up there though. I need to get some sliders on it before I go crazy with it.

    At the cottora takeover some guys were talking about a 2nd gen that went through it on 33 and a 3'' lift
    He may have been the best driver ever or just stupid lucky if you are saying 35's are needed
