I did use my lockers. Did I have to NO. I think you could go anywhere that I went without lockers. You may have had to choose a different line, but still, you could have done and seen everything that I saw.

I did the 4 BOH trails in the Ouray area 2 weeks ago. I have a stock JLR with 35's so it would be similar to your lifted Sport S, I never used the lockers and the only damage I had was to a rear tow hook when it came down on a rock on Mineral Creek. It was a great trip.

Drone flights at Top of the World. I was flying the drone and did not realize that my bud was not putting the Jeeps in the COOL spot.



This video was driving the bats and birds crazy.

pic of having to winch off a ledge on Onion Creek. Onion Creek was the most difficult trail I have ever been on. I wish I would have taken more pics, but I was busy trying not to damage or die.

You were on Rose Garden Hill, an offshoot of Onion Creek, which generally ends when you take either RGH or the Kokopelli up to Polar Mesa. It's not the only route to Onion Creek, but it is the shortest. We def don't recommend that trail to anyone.

That how we found out there was a Top of the World Road and a Top of the World Trail.

We made it to the bottom and then back up with no damage. Not sure how some flat landers from Michigan pulled that off.

Awesome. Thanks for the reply. My bucket list has Moab all over it, and these trails as well! I live in NC, so wanted to be sure before I made the haul.

Just seeing this.
Saw a lot on Instagram though.
How far did you get into Holy Cross?
The creek?
One of my favorite trails!
Yes, we went to the Creek. I don't think we could have gone farther with out getting damage.
