Does one of you live in Ouray? We've been camping at Amphitheater the last 4 years. Every year I consider bringing the Scout but it's cheaper to rent a jeep. Doc Stewart had a Scout gathering a few years ago in Ouray.It would really be fun to do our own "Scout Summit". Not a show to compete with the Rendezvous but just wheeling the usual trails around Ouray.

Next question. My Scout is a 345,727, 3.73 with a 4 inch suspension lift, 2300 carb with all the Michael Mayben carb modifications, jets for higher elevation and a working parking brake. Other than terra low gears in the transfer case, what would I need? No winch by the way.Would immediately after the Rendezvous be good so that more trails are open and to attract Rendezvous people? We were camping with the Honda the week of the FJ summit and Black Bear had just opened.

as long as you have 31-33 inch tires you don't need anything.
maybe some patience if your carb acts up or vapor locks with the high altitude
but really I don't think you need anything. optional would be a locker in either axel.
iv been running the san juan trails all my life.
yes a good time would be mid july to mid September. mid july being my #1 choice

I do have 32" BF Goodrich all terrain tires and lock rite locker in the rear. The only thing that worries me is downhill with the automatic. I've been to the Rendezvous in the past and I have to ride the brakes coming down.

ya there will be some brake riding, every one of the san juan trails are long steep climbs, with the same long steep decent.

1st gear wont hold back ?

No. With the automatic in low and the transfer case in low. I do have a 4 speed sitting in the garage. I just don't know if I want to be shifting all the time in Houston traffic. We had a manual volvo for 13 years though. And I drove my manual beetle for 18 years in Houston. But the traffic has gotten much worse.

Brian Tucker is running, installing, and now a dealer for the Tera-Low kit and is very happy with them.

I would be up for a Scout gathering in the San Juans.
