I'm kinda bummed at the lack of participation, but so be it. We will have a BLAST!

I completed the rear traction bar, painted all the tubing/frame, changed fluids, tuned the Holley TA, fixed some wiring issues. The old Honcho is ready to roll

Starting work on my 5x8 trailer today. Replacing the rotten OSB with some expanded metal. Also taking measurements and will try to fit my street bike on there along with the J10 cab. I'm thinking that the bike will come in handy if something happens to the J10 and I need to get parts

Any ideas what a bare cab weighs?

sent y'all a pm

Not sure what this cab will weigh. It would be lighter without doors. I can pull them just in case.

Yeah, but it sounds like we may wanna remove them when we load the cab to make it a little lighter. I can do that when I get there as I will have my impact.

I have never run chains here so not sure on that. A good resource for road conditions is here:

As a driver of the mountains in a tow truck I have knowledge of this....Colorado chain laws only apply to heavy and commercial vehicles. Any time the passes get too bad to that chains would be required on a passenger cars and trucks they just close it and catch up on plowing. They keep up on it very well due to the ski areas would cry like a baby that dropped its lollipop. Hope it helps.


BTW Love your youtube channel on the Cherokee!!

I've towed snowmobiles on big enclosed trailers all over Colorado during the worst (best) conditions. Over all the major passes such as Loveland, Vail, Berthoud, etc.

Don't worry about it. Take it easy, drive reasonable, keep plenty of room in between you and car in front and use lower gears when descending the passes.

If you have snow chains, then great. Use 'em only if it's really bad.

Besides - they close the passes and make folks wait while they plow anyway. I bet it won't be bad at all.

I'd go but my jeep needs all new ball joints, spring bushings, a brake line installed, power steering pump and box, a spring hanger welded, and a oil change. I'd ignore all that if I had the money for gas :P :P Savin' it for Ouray! Hey keep in mind the flare sections are fairly large, I left you lots of material to play with.

Welcome Patryk.

In years past, the FSJ group has used the City Market grocery parking lot to stage for the trails. Usually meet up starting at 8am and try to hit the road for a trail head by 9. There is gas available there. It is across the main drag from the Big Horn Lodge and a little bit north. The bigger the group, the longer we usually hang at the lot waiting for people. Since our group is small, this hopefully will not be an issue.

As for camping, if you can rough it up, south of Moab airport there a road on the right "mill canyon rd", cross the train tracks, and take a left after 1/2 mile, stay left, cross a small stream, the dirt road "cortez mine rd" will now parallel the highway... there are a few sites on spurs going up the side of the mountain.

A few roads in that area have been designated as mountain bike only.

A few years ago it started to be mandatory to have some sort of portable toilet... plastic seat with attach plastic bag... should do it.

Good view, but bad if it gets windy, your tent will fill up with sand.

Just about ready. New 35" General Grabbers. Trimmed another 1.5 to 2" sheet metal around fender openings. Got the extra inch of lift in back and 1" wheel spacers on. The 2" blocks were replaced with 3". This levels the GW back out. Went and pounded the hill out behind our house and it felt pretty darn good. The carb is running so nice I think I am done except for some foam to seal off the rear fenders. Later I will look at getting that tightened up with some sheet metal.
