@tnichols - i cant sort out those ski areas 100%
Almost certain now it is Vail, but not so sure.
Cool shot either way.


I have actually only skied a handful of our ski areas here.
spent more time climbing and skiing in the back country -where there use to be no people. Now its over run with morons

Is a hippostewardess related to a twatapotamous?

Similar, though not as direct as one may think. Hippostewardess is mostly based on being fat and bossy, twatapotamous is a descriptor of just behavior and has no link to their genetically assigned gender. can be male or female (only 2, seriously).

For example, a hippo stewardess can also be a twatapotampous

Thank you good sir for the education. If they taught our kids this in the school systems, we would be much better off.

    No beadlock at all. Mall crawler? Are you implying this Jeep doesn’t get dirty or work?

    edit: it is actually a simulated two piece wheel like a hummwv style, but without the dangerous real qualities a two piece wheel gives you.
    The HMMWV wheel is a beadlock wheel.

    Not saying yours doesn't get dirty but the fake beadlock look is usually reserved for the posers. If you aren't one, then good on you for using the Jeep as intended. Though all that extra meat on wheels simply adds unwanted, un-sprung weight. Wheels should be as light as possible (while still retaining strength) to offset the increase in weight going to a larger tire adds.

    This is my ride on the gatekeeper in Calico Canyon. I got those crushed rockers doing a couple of the Hammer Trails.





    That was at the 35th Anniversary of the Bronco. If you look close in both pictures you can see the person that took the opposite picture. One through my windshield and the other poking out from my rear passenger side.

    This was my wife's ride until we sold it when we left CA. Kind of regreting that now as with the release of the new Bronco I could have gotten another $10K for it in the current market. A friend of mine's nicely built Bronco that will be on the market soon, has jumped from the $60K he was anticipatng to $120K now.



    On Edit - That creased front fender was earned off-road running the Pilot Rock trail at a Bronco get together.

    Hi,

    Commonly confused but different species altogether...although the 289lb lard ass with the 80lb English bulldog as emotional support animal was indeed the twatapotamus species...the very elusive asexual genre...
    The dog was needed for his PTSD but wait, there's more....
    PTSD is because his cousin is serving in US Army.

    Sincerely,
    Theis

    this the one who is planning to be a vet?
    Darn good artwork either way.
    Just cool to be artistic like that. My oldest brother has it, very gifted.

    Yes sir, that’s the one.
    Thanks Powdahound. Her and her brother both are very talented when it comes to drawing. If you remember, she’s the one that drew the glasses I posted a couple years ago. This is done in pencil.

    It could very well be Vail, IDK. I know we were past Aspen and Rifle at that point.

    Yes, that is one type of beadlock setup.

    The split rim is needed to enable the run flat insert to be mounted and it does lock the beads in place. That's how they can continue to drive with the run flat insert. Otherwise the tire would just come off the rim.
    Ok, so new learnin for me then. I always assumed they were just regular old rims in all those days if torturing them. I did some reading and it is actually considered a double beadlock style. So, were my corvette wheels beadlock since they had run flats in them? That would make me a real poser to have beadlocks on a coupe

    Yes I was aware of the double beadlock feature but didn't want to get more technical then the conversation required. For a while we had guys running modified HMMWV wheels on their Early Broncos. Though it was more for the "look at me" feature since they are HEAVY and like I said adds unsprung weight that is a bad thing.

    As to your Vette, you didn't have run flat inserts nor beadlocks. What you have are run flat "TIRES". That are specially reinforced to stay seated in the wheel bead and support the car without air in tire. They are heavier and perform less well than regular tires.

    Wasn't any need for sarcasm in the first place.

    While I correctly commented that fake beadlocks were mostly for the poser crowd, I did continue on with kudos for you if you were in fact using the Jeep as intended.

    Kind of like going out in skinny jeans with a man bun and then wondering why people assume you are a soyboi.

    Feel free to post up some pictures of the Jeep "getting dirty".

    my dad had those on a little coupe and got rid of them pronto for a quieter and better ride, as well as the performance.
    295 hp in a light car (Z4) needs serious tires.
    He and my mom love cruising around in that thing.

    That one is a 2020 Durango. Certainly not fast but more practical for what we do.

    Hi,

    Except when you are dealing with anything related to "The Bug"..you are posing as a hippy. Didn't you get the memo from Steve??

    Heat and humidity are my dealbreakers. Did my last leg of service here so just decided to stay for the kids sake.
    Colorado would be a fine place but as you said, thy have changed the rules so much lately I don’t believe I would fit in. We just want to disappear into the nothing and enjoy life without people everywhere.
    The fatties here are pretty amazing creatures. Makes you wonder what the human body can endure sometimes.

    It also might have different front and rear driver side wheels. The rear wheel is black on the inside with a chrome lip. Factory size and cheap, but aftermarket. The front wheel looks like a standard black wheel, like you would see under hubcaps, but I'm not totally sure.
