Back from vacation
Well, I am back from a couple of weeks of wheeling in southern Colorado.
My brother and I were in his stock TJ and it performed beautifully.
His TJ has the three speed aout tranny in it and I was concerned about the downhill parts and wearing out the brakes.
Well, we went down some pretty steep trails and all we did was kicked it into 1st and let it idle down the trail.
As far as uphill goes it was great too, no shifting or clutch work involved which let me enjoy the view while wheeling instead of having to concentrate on the trail evert waking second of the drive.
We went over Cinnamon Pass a couple of times between Lake City, Silverton, and Ouray.
We would have gone over Engineer pass too, but they had not finished plowing the twenty plus feet of snow yet.
Overall, we had a great time seeing the sites, camping, fishing, and of course four wheeling.
