Did you get banned from the Rocky Mountain Forums too??
No, I never banned him or anyone else when RockiesRiders.com was running. I pulled the plug on that forum experiment as it was DEAD IN THE WATER.
It has been closed for some time & will not be opened again regardless of the whining.
Riding by Canon city yesterday, I saw the first "Buick-slashie" sign. I really need to get some of these.
Lewis Creek was awesome, but it was a Winter F'n Wonderland on top.
If you're gonig to ride in snow, riding in few inches that is only hours old with dirt below is pretty sweet.
Now THIS is a funny ad. I could easily see any number of motorcycles fitting in.

that's too cool to get bumped a page so quickly.
That makes me want to go pop wheelies and be all hooligan
on the KLR. Yea, go figure, an oxy moron.
VERY COOL! It's also very cool that Jeep, as a corporation, can stand back and let these guys play and design like this.

Hey, its still seconds!
Actually I didn't see your post until after I posted mine, no idea why other than possible pilot error :huh
I did seem accurate in my estimation that the plug vs. no plug would quickly go awry though....
That was a pretty nice van.
"....but the truth is, conversion vans are pretty much worthless..."
When I was younger we had a conversion van with an UVL (under-van lift) for my mom's wheelchair. It had a dropped deck, a chevy 350, and a suicide handle and hand controls. It also had a power folding rear seat/bed, and the front seats rotated 90°.
Yeah I had fun with that, I don't know how I didn't flip it.
My parent's bought a conversion van recently (a 2006 I think). That thing is sweet- 360, super comfy, roomy. Got if for cheap, too.
Jeanne was a soccer mom and had an Astro conversion van ('92?) when I met her in '94 shortly after her divorce from The Kids' Dad.
We drove it from Vegas out here one winter so I could spend Christmas with, and meet her gigantic family.
Epic snow not only over the Rockies....but from Green River to Salina and beyond.
Like 15mph snow in a 2WD van. Took us forEVER to get back to Vegas.
Nice rig though, Capt chairs x4, fold-down bed in back, and a tv for the kids.
It was a horrible winter driver here though, so when we moved here in 2000 she sold it and got an Outback.
My wife has had several conversion vans. Great comfort for everyone but the driver (well at least in the GM models). If you are long legged there's not much room in the drivers area. To get the seat far enough back to keep my legs from cramping up the steering wheel was miles away My father-in-law had a Ford but I didn't get to drive it enough to know if it had more leg room, they probably do. They actually do pretty decent in snow for a 2 wheel drive vehicle. there's enough weight you don't have to worry about sand bags
