New Home in Colorado

Hey everybody new to Co and around the Denver area, not new to LR have a swapped truck that scoots pretty good and was wondering what the local lightning guys do for fun. If there are any local GTG happening I'd like to meet you guys and compare mods, talk trucks tunes and find out if I need to do anything different.
Thanks,
John

Lightning Swap,
BAR inspected, smog legal, 460-70hp/520tq,'02 low mi. Stock Lightning Motor & Trans w/ a 2.3 Kenne Bell and a JLP sheet metal intake, tuned by JJ and an X-Cal 4, All the usual supporting mods and a few extras thrown in for reliability, cooling, handling and weight carrying capabilities. Oh and dont forget power!!! Over 433,000mi. in this truck with over 120 oil chnges, 50 brake jobs. Definitely need a new paint job! I made it past 400,000! 150,000 with the L-motor!

Well I dont think the truck is going to be out much in the winter but that is a good point, sits really low plus the roads out here are hammered and my Trutrac rear end would make ice driving a real exciting time.
