Default Liberty Trail 11/3/2012 Penrose, CO

Frank Zimkas was nice enough to take me out on my second real trail run in my rig. It was a beautiful day, and Frank was awesome about the whole day, which included many issues, lol. I have never written a trail report, and it is hard to say how much or little I should include. When my XJ wasn't vapor locked/heat soaked, it was doing decent on the trail, thanks to the great spotting by Frank. I have a LOT still to learn, and I think I will hit some easier trails to get more control on my clutch, but I am super thankful to have someone like Frank willing to take me out, knowing I am a rookie/noob to wheeling. The trail had a lot of good obstacles and I got to test/flex out my rig quite a bit. Quick rundown on my rig, '01 XJ, 6" Rusty's LA, 33" MT/R Kevlars, Eaton E lockers F/R, 4.56 gears, Dana 30/XJ Dana 44. Unless otherwise noted, the photos were taken by Frank. Here are photos from the day, in no particular order:

Had a great day Ernie.
Once your heat soak issue is resolved you'll be set.

Great pics y'all! The Mrs. and i are planning a trip to Colorado in the spring time to do some wheeling. We have been talking about this trip forever and we are finally going to pull the trigger!

Looks like y'all had a blast out there! Where abouts was this?
