Default Montrose trip

Went to Montrose in my cruiser last weekend. I had a great time but I had to cut the wheeling part of the trip a little short because my clutch decided to slip on me when going over rocks and ledges. I should have done the clutch before I left
The cruiser did well over the passes and I made it home. 550 miles round trip!!!
If you have never been to Montrose and the sorrounding area then you are missing out.
Its worth the journey.

The slide show is from Scratch N Dent. It lived up to its name.
Damage report:
1 tore up side wall ( BFG Mud )
1 ripped off fender flare ( Blazer )
1 smokin/slipping clutch
2 missing anchor shackles
1 bent up rocker.

The other vehicle was my buddy's built up blazer with a doubler and huge swampers. He walked over everything. Except the last obsticle where his wide gerth caused some issues.
I will post some more pics of damage when I get around to it. For now enjoy.

78 FJ40, 2F, HEI, 4" lift, 33x10.5, rear aussie locker, rust.

Great pics. I'm going to have to check out this trail the next time I visit my inlaws in Cedaredge (near Delta). Did you talk to Jermiah before you went out there?

Your buddy has some enormous tires!
