The main coarse for the day would be a complete Toytec lift installed on a 07 Double Cab Off Road. There was also a CB install and numerous other smaller modifications and maintenance items to get things in check for our first trail run of the year. A big thanks goes out to Chris (Slapps74) for his hospitality and great garage.
The trail run on the following weekend was great! The snow was clearing from the trails in the Idaho Springs area and the scenery was beautiful. While the first two trails we ran were more of a dirt logging road type trail (Oh-My-God Road and Russell Gulch), the third trail of the day (Pickle Gulch) would certainly bring more challenges. SNOW! There were many spurs off of Oh-My-God Road and Russell Gulch to play on but the area we had the most fun in was a section of Pickle Gulch that had a snow drift about 2 feet deep. Bob, in his OME lifted 06 Off Road, busted the first tracks through the big drift. This would be the end of our day as only three of the six vehicles were equipped to make it through. But, the day didn’t completely end, time for some target shooting; An AK-47 was the weapon of choice. Damn, that was a fun day! Hopefully the next Colorado trail day will bring less snow and more fun challenges.
