Intro from WY, UT, CO

Hey gents and ladies,
My name is Charles, and I am just starting to get active in the CO wheeling scene again. I am from Laramie, WY I have been a student at CSU for the past 3 1/2 years studying Construction Management, and have done some wheeling while I was there. I just got a lot more sereous about it with the purcahse and upgrades of my 2003 Doublecab Taco this year.
I have been out on my internship in Utah, and have been wheeling all summer and have met some cool people and seen some really cool places. I would like that trend to continue when I move back to Fort Collins to finish up school, so I am hoping to join up on some trail runs with the COTTORA crew!

My steed has a full Old Man Emu Suspension, ARB Bull Bar, Warn 8k, Stubbs Welding HD-SKO sliders, Bud-Built Skid, TRD rear locker, 255/85/R16 BFG Mud Terrain KM2's, ARE shell, and some other odds and ends.


I will be checking the forums often for trip plans, and will post up my own when I am planning on heading out.

Nice to meet you all!

WOOHOO!! GO RAMS!!! Top of the World is a great trail. OME ROCKS!! I'm saving to put OME on my Tundra. If OME made Camry suspensions I'd have one on the wife's car too.

Haha, how I love being a RAM!

I completely love my OME suspension, it has greatly exceeded my expectations. The ride in my rig is firm but very forgiving and takes huge bumps with ease. Great flex with no swaybar too...


Thanks for the warm welcome!

I cant wait to move back to the Fort next weekend!

Welcome. IceHorse and I are Mech Engineering majors at CSU. She's got a place close to campus, and I'm up the hill in Rist Canyon. Maybe we'll see you around. A few other members are students (or former students) in the area too.

That would be fun, but we'll be out of town, and Doris still needs a new harness.

I just did the math. It is, in fact, cheaper to go out drinking every weekend than it would be for me to pay for a legitimate therapist. What are you doing next Friday night?
