    Went to go pick my dad up from the airport today and suddenly started running really hot, almost to the point of overheating. Went home, swapped out the thermostat, added a little coolant and all is well now!

    Whew! Talk about a last minute scare, was worried I was going to miss this year!

    See you guys in Silverton!

    Mine had the same issue. Could be bad height sensors, leak in a shock, low ahc fluid among many other things. I have a front passenger side shock I can bring along if it magically happens to have a leak on that side.

    How loaded is the cruiser? Had this problem last year on the way to HIH7 due to too much weight. Unloaded some items before running trails and was fine.

    Drove thru the night from Texas, made it to Durango around 1pm yesterday. Leaving to Silverton today, anyone know what the earliest time to set up camp in Kendall is? I'd like to drop the trailer off so we can drive around town.

    For this one, try removing some weight from the rig. You can overload that system. Someone else also mentioned that worked for them last year.


    For this one, 2pm for Kendall Mountain access. It really helps us out if folks will stick to that so we can prepare. Lots to do today, for us.

    Thanks

    I’m game again. Trying to rouse the family now to go get some grub.

    I think we should be ready by 9:30-10:00

    I’m at The Bent Elbow Inn. I think I can see you guys from my balcony. White LX backed in, looks like a green tarp up on the roof rack?

    It's not too loaded. He unhooked his trailer, put it in low, and it never came back up again. He has air bags in the rear to help with the load.

    We swapped his rear AHC sensor with mine and no difference. What I'm reading on mud suggests it's a bad pump.

    I take it that the LC with trailer at the comfort inn is yours? I'm here too. That's a heck of a rig! I was out checking it out this morning, lol. I'm in the much less modified LX :)

    I was in Denver for the night on business and there was a nice hundy at the Embassy Suites out towards the airport that was loaded and one would assume headed out to Silverton. Jealous of the trip.

    550 south from montrose was no problem at 9AM. 2 sections of single lane roads added up to a 10 minute delay, tops.

    Do you have access to techstream? Chances are you might have some bad sensors. But techstream will tell you more or less what is going on.

    About 4-5 hours out. See you all soon!

    Coming from Colorado Springs via Buena Vista 24 - 285 - 50 - 550. Hopefully 550 is looking good!
