      Trip update 3/4. Go to 1/4 for videos! :victory:


      OK, so that was supposed to be the end of my trip. Cruise back to Denver, nice long weekend in Moab with friends. NOPE

      My buddy Dave texts me and says he's bike packing from Denver to Vegas with a some other guys and I should try to meet up with them as we cross paths. So instead of driving the highway back to Denver with my friends I decide to head the "back way" out of Moab towards Telluride. I later learned there is a new "trail" that was connected last year between Moab and Montrose CO that is 150 miles without ever touching pavement!!! I did not take this route but I will be back for sure. Probably make a 3-4 day trip out of it. I digress, so I take 191 south through Moab and turn East on 46 which hits the Colorado state line and turns into CO-90. There is absolutely zero traffic on this road, no surprise on a random weekday morning. It also happens to be an incredibly beautiful drive. There are so many times I wish I were in a fast/well sorted car when Im on these trips, this was one of those times.



      #selfie...sorry




      "Simpsons" clouds





      What you can see in these next few pictures R-L are Dolores Peak(not a 14er) Mt Wilson(14er) Wilson Peak(14er) El Diente Peak(over 14K but not enough prominence to be its own "14er") and a mess of other peaks in the San Juan and San Miguel Ranges. Colorado is like no place else. :Wow1:





      OK fast forward an hour. I get into Telluride and figure Ill go hit up my favorite camp spot Alta Lakes(if you go to Telluride you HAVE to see this) but the weather says otherwise. Its June and Its dumping snow. Having just come from Moab at 90 degrees this is fun. I get within a half mile of the lake/camp sites and the road is still covered in deep enough snow that I don't bother. It gets much worse after these pictures and I dont want to get stuck, alone, at 12,000 feet, while its snowing. So I head into Telluride to regroup.







      Downtown Telluride is boring and ugly, dont ever go...





      If you do stumble into town though, make sure you stop in the New Sheridan Hotel Bar for some libations. Nearly unchanged since 1895.




      So I take some advice from the barkeep and head back up a different mountain. I see a crapload of elk, I find myself in a ghost town at dusk and I wind up staying at a state park campground because I couldnt find anything else(surprisingly) and I was getting really tired.










      Up next, trip report 4/4...this might have to be 5 parts.

      2 things:

      1) I wish I had friends that did and liked this kind of stuff.

      2) It looks so beautiful out West.

      Awesome trip man. I'm so jealous.

      Sad to hear it's for sale again, but I can understand why you would want to try something different.

      Take this for what you want – personally when I see an ad that is as incredibly detailed as yours, especially about mods, it slightly scares me to shoot a text about being interested. It makes me feel like this truck can't just be used for normal truck stuff, like a lot potential buyers might want. Sometimes the best ads are the simple ones. I'm not saying you shouldn't disclose everything about the truck, people have the right to know what they're buying, but IMO condensing it down to 2-3 paragraphs would do wonders for helping you get some interest. Tell people those details like the type of oil you used in person, maybe hand them a printout of the maintenance/mods that they can read if they want to. These things might be important to you, but not everyone cares as much as we do.

      Again, grain of salt, simply my opinion. Best of luck with the sale, thanks again for the update!

      This thread inspires me to go on more adventures with my 4x4 crap rather than just daily them.

      Ive gone back and forth with simple ads/complex ones. Around here people see and drive lifted, modded trucks. If it were stock I would list it as such and be simple about it. If I put it back to stock and sold the parts so I could sell the truck as stock I would list it that way. Also, I much prefer to see all the details. It really annoys me when I see ads with "too much to list" or something to that effect. You know that person is a d-bag to deal with and thinks their junk is WAY nicer than it actually is. You also know they don't have all their info about the car readily available, which probably means it isnt well documented or cared for. Unless its a numbers matching muscle car with a 50 year history etc. I want to see a list of whats done so I can eliminate it as an option without having to contact you.

      Totally agree on "too much to list" - if you couldn't take the time to type it out, how many shortcuts did you take on the build, you know? Your explanation makes sense, GLWS!

      Read this whole thread. Awesome truck and it seemed to be fairly trouble free. I'm bummed you sold it but always gotta progress to the next thing.

      This thread solidifies my want for an american regular cab 4x4 truck with a V8. I've always wanted one of those GMT900 Silverados 1500 with everything manual/basic.
      I'll probably end up with an xterra or similar for practicality.

      Anyway awesome read, can't wait to see the adventures you'll have in the jeep.

      Thank you! I dont necessarily care for Xterras but if you insist make sure you get a 2nd generation one. The first gens with the torsion bar suspension are HORRIBLE. Pickup is a much better idea!

      Read the whole thread, love the truck and pics. I am also looking for something like what you got once I get off my lease. Stripped 2500 4x4 but it's impossible to find a single cab anywhere.

      Thanks. In your searches if you ever find anything around Denver and want me to check it out I gladly will.

      Saw this thread bumped and thought maybe OP had bought the truck back. Obviously not the case, dammit.

      Report the posts when you see them. Mods can't review every post but do get to the reported ones quickly and take the appropriate action.
