I have a set of rods on my counter, seem pretty easy to install. I havent taken my lr3 on any complicated trails just yet. Although I do believe in its capabilities, it seems like I get the "you dont want to take that truck there" vibe from a number of people. I am rolling on Hankook Dynapro ATM Tires which have been getting good reviews.

I am also a member of Solihull Society, I just joined. Im just trying to get some wheeling in so let me know when you guys are heading out somewhere. Im pretty eager to try a few more challenging trails. Im in the Army and I am a tank crewmember, so I am pretty familiar with using ground guides and spotters in tight situations lol. I will be away for the rest of the month of April though.

Paul,

Didn't know you were on this forum. Good to hear from you. We'll have to do a couple trails once the snow clears out a little more. That last run of the year at Jenny Creek was fun, but I found out after that I crushed my right exhaust pipe like a pancake.

May is probably good timing for the front range trails, so maybe Panzer would like to join us. We'll have to ping Kelby as well.

Later.

Yeah, I thought that was you, Matt...haha. I try to make my rounds to all of the forums, hunting for parts and people to wheel with. That run at Jenny Creek was definitely a good time, sorry to hear about the exhaust...I currently still have a basketball sized dent in my fuel tank. I'm absolutely ready for some trails, so we should plan something out...also thinking about a Moab trip sometime soon if you would be interested in that.

I would for sure. We have a new baby, so time for overnights is a little tight until my wife is off for the summer. I could probably do Moab in July or August. Until then, weekend day trips are cool. I would say the trails will be ready to run in a couple weeks. There is still a lot of snow on the trails right now.

I have some family that lives in Boulder, I could stay a night with them if there is a trail in that area that requires an early start. Its not really that far of a drive from Colorado Springs.

Anyways I am interested, Ill be away for most of April but back at the beginning of May. Once im back most weekends will be good for me.

I would like to join in the party as well! With the recent storm the mountains had I bet it will add a few weeks before the snow is melted on most for the trails. Sand Dunes is always a good time!
Day trips west of Denver or along 285 are good! Georgia Pass is always excellent! I did that one last fall. Would have to watch how much snow is left up top. I have yet to have the guts to try Red Cone pass! Anyone her try Red Cone?

Hey RvDUB,

I think myself and one of the other Solihull Society guys are going to try to head down to Metbury Gulch tomorrow (4/9) sometime, if you are interested. Let me know!

Here's a link to the trail description: http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=209

Back from Army training in Louisiana. Most weekends in May are good for me if you guys want to put something together.
