Complete setup looks fantastic! How is the Colorado/Utah planning going?

I know that beach (causeway) well :).
Thank you Jeff!! The trip planning is going well. I am still waiting on 2 of those books to come in but they are due within the next week. We are trip planning some this weekend while we are at the Jeepin with Judd event. The issue at the moment is trying to figure out if we want to proceed with June 1st leave date or back it up 6-8 weeks to ensure all the passes are open so we can enjoy them. I hate to make a drive all the way out there and some of what I want to do not be open.

Yes you do know that causeway very well :D Unfortunately it would appear we have gone from winter straight to summer here now as it is high 80s and humid as hell. It was the busiest I have ever seen the causeway on Sunday.

Bushducks.com is a good source for when trails are open each year: http://www.bushducks.com/tripreps/passopen.htm.

Had lots of fun at the Jeepin with Judd event outside Bartow FL this weekend. Ran a few trails Friday and jeep did great. Had lots of off camber, declines, inclines etc. No rain and hot so it was a dust bowl by mid day Friday but the event is always a lot of fun. Came home a day early for an event at sticks cigar shop and then stripped doors and off to the beach with the family today. Great weekend all around.

So I had Ursa Minor install the base clips for a Yakima system and I figured I would find a used system at some point. Didn't think I would so quickly. Paid $50 had everything but the key for the locking mechanism. And best part it has the optional boatloader extension so it will be a piece of cake to put kayak on top. I'm sure I can get a new lock from Yakima. Of course had to install when I got back to work with it

Mr. Deals strikes again! How do you do it?

Looks great!

What's the latest on your Colorado/Utah plans?

Ha! I knew you would say that and I was thinking same thing myself haha.

Trip is going good we have decided to back it up to mid July so passes are open.

Good plan. The earliest I ever do Colorado is mid-July, for exactly that reason.

Nice Rack! ;)
Yakima has complete lock cylinder sets. I bought a set of six matching locks to do the bars, and the Rocket Box. Very simple to swap them out.

Ha! Thanks Comanche!! Yeah I have the lock cylinders (4) but no key so what I did was order the master cylinder key so i can pull them out to get the key code off the side and order new keys. I should have the master key here monday next week.

I set up with some friends to go and check out Dupuis WMA again. I went last year right after I got this Jeep and it was a nice time and it is Free so 6 of us all met up and had a great weekend there.

What's the horse for? In case the Jeep breaks down? :)
Hahaha Jeff so the wma has an equestrian campground and is also free to them along with stalls. So in the back of the wma we drove and along comes these 5 ladies on 5 horses. This one was over 7 feet tall and I was like holy **** that horse is huge lol she was like come and hop on and had me stand on a 2 foot (approx) rock to get on that damn thing. Not many times in life i have to look up ha. But it is really cool that even on the equestrian side they can register and use it for free.
