We are going to go to Buena Vista, CO again this year. This area always seems to be a favorite for all and has very different variations in scenery and trails. Trails will be Chainman’s Gulch, Grizzly Lake & Iron Chest, just to name a few.

Just google Lodging there to find what suits you the best, there are many options.

While this is absolutely not going to be the end of the Colorado Scramble the annual part will be broken. As long as I do this there really isn't a way that I can wheel some of the other places that I want to so while not ending it is going to be on Hiatus for a while. Just so many other places I want to see and do - I want to do Big Bear and the Rubicon as well as lots of Arizona stuff, some close and some almost to Vegas. Southern Cali also. Have even been looking at South Dakota as I lived in Rapid as a kid. As well as other events!

I hope as many that can make it do, maybe some of you guys that have been talking about it for a long while! After a year or two we'll pick it back up and march on 8-)

Think I will come up and join you guys too. Not sure I can keep up with 40s! But I'm willing to give it a try.

Still running stock axels with 35s and ARBs. They have been built up as things have broken over the years. 4.56 gears, heavy duty hubs, one piece chromoly axels, and welded tubes. They are pretty tough but definitely can't go any bigger without a complete swap!

Sounds pretty nice, I think you'll be fine. We've had lesser rigs give it a go for sure. Look forward to meeting you!

Ok, I've had the Scrambler for just over a year now and want your opinion if it's capable of tackling these trails. It's lifted with 37s, 4.88 gears with a posi in the rear. Front is an open differential. I have the 8274 on the front and running the 258.

Oh yeah you will be good. Sounds like its set up for trailing, next step locker in the front or both if your open back there as well. If nothing else you've got the tire, gear and lift to get through this easily, if your locked in the rear you'll be fine. Chinaman's and Iron Chest are the only two tough ones...

I just saw that you said a Posi in the rear so you are open front and back... I can see where you might need some assistance in some spots but I've seen them done with much less than you have. And we'll help you out with a tug or a spot any time you need it and will keep an eye out for you if need be, nary a prob!

Last minute spot booked. I won’t be able to make Wednesday trail runs but I will potentially get to eat at Quincy’s three nights in a row!!!
