Hey thenewx.org!

I am a Navy vet who just moved to Colorado from San Diego; originally from Connecticut.

A little about my Xterra history:
This is my second Xterra. Purchased my first X in 2005 an Avalanche White 2005 Off Road, funny thing is it was only a 2wd, yes seriously you read that correct. It was still great and did everything I wanted it to do until I started really getting the itch to go off road. After three years wishing I had a 4wd, I decided to let my baby go after scoring an amazing deal on a Smoke Metallic 2008 Titan PRO-4X, threw some big rubbers at her and it was on. Awesome truck, not a single complaint, but I still missed my X. Always looking at Xterras on the road and off, wishing I still had it, but hey it was only 2wd right. After a couple years of staring at Xterras I decided it was time to do the right thing and get another Xterra. I didn't realized until I got to the lot that they did a little refresh to the interior and more standard options. Three days after seeing her I was the proud owner of a 2010 Red Brick Off Road w/ 4wd! ;). Must be the same feeling a dog has after being reunited with his master after being lost for years.

Needless to say it feels great to be back in an X. I'm looking forward to meeting new people, as I get my new X mod'd up, and hitting up the local trails with my fellow X owners.

Keep the rubber side down,
-jmadd

Thanks for the welcomes everyone! I'm in Parker.

Those of you that know CO, I'd like to know where some trails I can get out on in my stock xterra. My first plan is to get some sliders, preferably from some local business, in the not too distant future as well an OME suspension, but until then I'd still like to have some fun.

www.traildamage.com is a good resource for Colorado trails ... stock should be able to handle anything up to the 3-4 range of ratings on their site, depending on your abilities. If you have (or decide to order, which you should ... they're good) the Wells Funtreks books (www.funtreks.com), stock should be fine for greens and some blues ... again, ability dependent.

... oh, and welcome. :eek:ccasion5:

I'm also a Navy Vet and welcome from Aurora! If you want something near Parker and fairly easy, you might try the Rampart Range. All the high altitude trails will be snowed over pretty soon.

Where is the Rampart Range located? Also, when do the higher altitude trails start piling up with snow?

It would be nice to go out on the trail with another rig.

Welcome! From the Springs as well.

Be sure to keep an eye on the "Mountain" thread for trail runs.
Thanks for the welcome and the heads up on that thread. Looks like there is a great group of X owners here in Colorado.

Thanks for the link. I can't believe how many Colorado trails there are. Quick questions, is there a way to filter through the trails based on rating at traildamage.com? From what I saw when organizing by difficulty it doesn't have any specific ascending/descending format, just appears to be randomized.

Imagine that. :p

Oh, and welcome from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. :hello2: I used to live in Monument, but my GPS said take that left turn at Alburqueque and I actually listened. :scratch: What was I thinking? :banghead:

We'll be back in Colorado 1st of January for good. :thumbup:

I know how that goes, same thing happened to me one day in California and then 1300 miles later...:D

Seriously, how could anyone want to leave this place? Sounds like a New Year's resolution, "never leave CO again".

If you go to their "Trails" link, then sort by difficulty (http://www.traildamage.com/search.php?s=difficulty), that's the best you're going to get ... it gives you their whole list, across all states, in ascending order of difficulty. Now all is not lost there, 'cause you can look for the state in each trail's name ... or cross reference names of trails from the map page, that are close to you.

They also link each trail on the map to it's description page; so sometimes what I do, if I'm looking in a particular area, is to zoom in to the area I'm interested in, then open each trail into a new browser tab ... then peruse the descriptions until I settle on one (or a few) that look good for that trip.
