I've driven a couple of trails around Telluride many years ago, Engineers Pass was one of them. Happy days.

Our mountains aren't on the same scale, but they're good wheeling territory all the same.

And today I drove like a god !!!! Class win and Overall win ..... \:D \:D \:D \:D

Nice stuff. Looks like fun.

Dual brake calipers? I wouldn't think that would have been required? Please explain.

My first "car" was a rusted out 1970 International Harvester Travelall. It was HUGE! and we took it "Muddin", as often as I could cut school and get away with it.

Thanks for the link. it gave me a smile.

LLoyldy,
Let me know if you come back to Colorado. I spend a lot of time there and have a nice F-250 Crew Cab, 4x4, deisel. A fantastic ride to thunder over the continental divide!

the dual brake calipers are - the original set for the footbrake as standard - the second, more powerful set for the independant fiddle brakes ( cutting brakes in the US ) to lock one rear wheel up and slew the whole vehicle around in its own length.
They are operated from a pair of hand levers between the seats and very handy for getting out of trouble.

One day soon I'll finish the damned thing !

If we get over to the States next summer some wheelin is in order, I missed some good Colorado trails last time we were there because I trashed the rental Cherokee in Utah :rolleyes:
And there's some trails around Moab and Death Valley that I really want to drive as well.

I'll try to remember to add some pics of the rental Jeep stuck in Utah's finest mud as well, It was actually a very scary experience, but one we got away with.
