The worst part about living in CO is needing 20 hours a week to explore the state.

Money and time is heaven.. money and time...

Hahahaha, yes: first-world problems! Oy, the 40 hours a week at work are a real problem. Believe it or not, Jeeping is like my No. 3 or No. 4 hobby. It's going to take a looooonnnggg time to run all the trails I want to run. After the kayaking. And the climbing. And the mountainbiking.

Nice shots. Is that a billeit silver Jeep? My last one was billeit. Still think it was prettier than my current. But I decided an XR should be obnoxious-colored!

Great video Mike - and can't wait for updates from your next trip to Moab.

QQ, are you going to add anything to protect door hinges and rear fenders? I know my hinges are rear fenders took a beating from all the stuff the KO2s pick up.

Thanks! Crossing fingers about Moab. Hoping to go Friday, but they might be getting flooded again as we speak.
As for the question... I probably will not be doing anything about that stuff. It's a good idea, I'm sure. But I only have so much time money energy to invest in the Jeep. And I probably will just let the fenders get chewed up and occasionally touch-up-paint the hinges if needed.

Yes Sir, a 2020 so Billet Silver Metallic is what they call it. Red was my first color choice, I think the JLs look sharp in that color but got a great deal on this one right off the lot so couldn't pass it up.

Right on! I got my billeit silver '21 off a train, bought it while it was in transit. Loved it. But when I decided to build/order one, it needed to be a different color. Almost went with Snazzberry. But I'm happy with the red.

Red Cone was really fun! I did it last week for the first time as well. I had just finished up with my new lift and had to take it out on a few trails to play. Earlier that week I also wheeled up Mammoth Gulch and a bit farther south towards Loch Lomond, and then did Argentine Pass the next day. All of these have some amazing 12-13k ft views. Highly recommend all of them!

Hahaha, the clouds/fog really elevated the ominous look for your descent!

Descending from the clouds!

It looks like you did the loop in your video? I went north towards Montezuma. I definitely want to do it again some time and try one of the other trails back out. That last shelf road at the end if your vid looks like some good views.
