  1. What first? Lift or camping essentials?

    Stock Jeeps are very capable. Get out and enjoy it as it is and decide what else you need. Doesn't pay to put $1000s into modifying it if rock crawling is not your immediate goal. I've gone all over Colorado and Utah with a stock Ranger, F150, and LJ Jeep. A few scrapes due to operator...
  2. cheap sleep system (for 1 person)

    Heh heh... well... the ultimate (IMHO) is the UM option. Want to order one, but it would be mostly unused for the foreseeable future and maybe not fit in my garage (which I will not do without in the snowy north here). Alas, the floor plates and cramped quarters of the non-modded JLU will have...
  3. Are Sway Bar Disconnects a waste of time on a Stock Sport S suspension

    Excellent... thanks! I ordered yesterday. Had a couple questions - good chat with the folks. Hoping the experience works out OK for all of us! Thanks OP for posting about this. BTW... anyone on the fence... they said they have less than 2 dozen in stock as of my purchase. In these days of...
  4. cheap sleep system (for 1 person)

    I had an LJ also... I simply removed the front passenger seat and built a small plywood shelf to be even with the lvel of the back of the Jeep so I could sleep flat. Was (is) just me anyway, and the passenger seat served no purpose other than to hold up my camera bag, which the wood platform...
  5. Are Sway Bar Disconnects a waste of time on a Stock Sport S suspension

    Thanks... that is what I presumed, and what is certainly attractive about them. Still seems too good to be true, but then sometimes innovation is like that. 🍻 Still... there is something to be said for the simplicity of the tried and true manual links... I will have to ponder a bit... and see...
  6. Are Sway Bar Disconnects a waste of time on a Stock Sport S suspension

    Glad you like those Apex. One of the vids indicated cutting inner fenders... but that did not look like a Jeep involved. Did you have to cut anything for the tops of the Apex disconnects, or do they travel unhindered? The description says, " No trimming required on factory wheel wells. " so I...
  7. Free/Dispersed camping in CO. End of July

    There are a few CO writeups on this thread. I added several last evening that are in the area where you said you will be: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/lifestyle-trails-a-k-a-%E2%80%9Ctrails-for-pusses%E2%80%9D-%E2%80%94-list-them-here.56846/
  8. Lifestyle Trails (A.K.A. “Trails for Pusses”) — list them here!!!!!

    COLORADO, Gunnison (or Crested Butte from the other end) Cty Rd 730 / Ohio Pass Dirt road that cuts between just north of Gunnison up to Kebler Pass heading west out of Crested Butte. A little lacking in overall activities other than a pretty drive due to private land around it, but its views...
  9. Lifestyle Trails (A.K.A. “Trails for Pusses”) — list them here!!!!!

    COLORADO, Telluride / Ridgeway Last Dollar Road A longer "cut-off" between Hwy 62 west out of Ridgeway down to Hwy 145 dropping you into Telluride from the west. Tends to be a perennial favorite of fall color photographers, but is a nice winding and rolling dirt road skirting the west flanks...
  10. Lifestyle Trails (A.K.A. “Trails for Pusses”) — list them here!!!!!

    COLORADO, Silverton Cty Rd 2 to Animas Forks The first part of the road is well maintained and people drag their houses up it to "camp" at the foot of the 4x4 trails above the Animas River valley. The road degrades a bit but is easily passable in a stock JL all the way to Animas Forks with...
  11. Lifestyle Trails (A.K.A. “Trails for Pusses”) — list them here!!!!!

    COLORADO, Lake City Cty Rd 30 (along and past Lake San Christobal) Mostly easy well-maintained road that connects to the east side of Cinnamon Pass (itself a connector to Engineer Pass, Animas Forks, and is part of the Alpine Loop). Takes you past a bunch of scenic (read: $$$$) homesteads and...
  12. Lifestyle Trails (A.K.A. “Trails for Pusses”) — list them here!!!!!

    COLORADO, Silverton / Ouray Ophir Pass (one pass further on than Black Bear off Hwy 550; much easier alternative to cut between Ouray / Silverton and the Telluride side) The road is a little harder than some on here, but maintained well enough that it is probably better than some of the more...
  13. Lifestyle Trails (A.K.A. “Trails for Pusses”) — list them here!!!!!

    COLORADO, Lake City Henson Creek Rd / Engineer Pass The Lake City side of Engineer pass is almost 2WD all the way to the top of Engineer Pass. Hiking opportunities at trailheads along the way, old mine remains, etc. Gets real high and offers dispersed camping up in the higher reaches...
  14. Lifestyle Trails (A.K.A. “Trails for Pusses”) — list them here!!!!!

    COLORADO, Cimarron / Ridgeway Silver Jack Reservoir / Owl Creek Pass Long maintained dirt road with lots of spurs to distributed camps and trailheads into the north side of the Uncompahgre Wilderness. Nice aspens in autumn. Oh... and it is the location where they shot a number of scenes...
  15. Made In a Day: Jeeps (Nat Geo on Disney+)

    Yep... after seeing comments on this forum I checked mine on day 2 - and ALL of them needed a bit of a push. Not one was fully seated (as best as I could tell and understand "proper seating", which some here have said is a bit subjective). Was a little irritating that something so simple could...
  16. Free/Dispersed camping in CO. End of July

    Just saw this thread... I second what Overland said... at that time of the summer the hills will be crawling with all kinds of motorized critters (too many, these days - I miss the '90's when it was still reasonable; I lived in CO on and off for 25 years). There are a zillion Nat Forest and...
  17. Portable Air Compressors

    Rigged up the trailer plug on the ARB portable... seems to work OK, though I only tried it on one tire and a partial air-down and re-up. We'll see what (if anything) happens when I run all four back up some time... but for now it is a tiny accomplishment of convenience. 😬 For the time being...
  18. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Thanks... those 800 options are what have been derailing me. I think I more or less settled into those same numbers independently as well (or was it... ummm... ????), but never pulled the trigger. I will jot these down for now... you know - to give Mopar time to change the part numbers...
  19. My new scissor jack setup

    BTW... careful with those... when I had my Sportsmobile I considered one of these, but several members on that forum complained that they leaked badly if not kept upright. No complaint about function... just the leaks.
  20. My new scissor jack setup

    Dang... now that I am thinking about it... perhaps I should see if a shop around here can alter the OEM jack to interface with my Safe Jack pieces. They are just collecting dust.
