Looking to start a club based in the northern front range area of Colorado. Activities might include trail runs, wrench days, brewery socials, etc... We have so many great trails to explore!

Open to everyone from the experienced to the newbies.

Post ideas and how involved you would want to be! Anyone interested in helping get it started?

My compliments! It is not often to find someone interested in planning what to do once their Bronco arrives. For me, it seems the global pandemic has altered my plans. If I receive my Bronco in 2021, I will need to work on my off-roading skills. Northern New England will be my focus as I tackle mud, rocks, and narrow wooded trails. If all goes well, 2022 could be the year I add elevations to my list of Bronco experiences.

I hope you have an interest in GAIA GPS and trip planning. Most perspective Bronco owners may not have an interest. I always felt if you have a destination in mind, you should know where you are going. Maybe you will share your thoughts on trips in Northern Colorado.

You might see in the picture below, I have an interest!

I haven’t used GAIA GPS yet but it’s on my list! I have used Avenza maps because all the US Forest roads are available for free download on their platform. However I find the interface not the easiest..

The guide you show in the picture is awesome. I have both Colorado north and south and the Moab version and have used it extensively! Great books, worth every penny.

There are a couple of early (Gen 1) Bronco Clubs that cover CO. It's kind of wait and see how well the new Bronco integrates with the established older Bronco groups. My thought is that at first when there are relatively few new Broncos on the trails it would be good to tag along with the current Clubs and then new Bronco Clubs will naturally evolve. Lots of discussion on what constitutes a real "Club". Simply a FB group? A Club web site? A local BN "Chapter"? A club with a constitution and bylaws and dues-paying members? Established and Vendor sponsored events? A full-fledged "Club" is lots of work!! Good luck!

I am part to the Colorado Early Bronco Group, it’s a great group of guys and some cool rigs. Events, getting together and working on rigs, trail-rides. I known very few (or none?) will have a problem with me bringing my new bronco along, they even tolerate my Samurai! My 67 should be finished soon. Working on wiring as we speak.....

They even let you help out on the trail rides in your Sami at SC West!

(Thanks for the help with the radios, BTW.)

But I agree, the CO Early Bronco Group will likely be new Bronco friendly.

I took the Sami on one ride to Holy Cross, since it is loaded with recovery gear (to make sure everybody got out), but the rigs were more than capable. I kept busy on comms and a few bronco fuel injection issues (including a late night drive ability diagnosis and repair in a closed gas station, but that’s my kind of fun!

I’ve been tagging along with the Mile High Jeep Club but I’m looking to be with Bronco owners.

I just picked up the Funtreks Guide. It’s the same feeling as the Sears Catalog. We’ll need to replace the Jeep pictures with Broncos.

For sure... For this club, I'm thinking of it as a chance to get social and meet other owners in the area and share ideas and passion for the Bronco. I'm not trying to replace any of the hardcore 4x4 clubs, they are awesome and I would encourage everyone that is new to the hobby to get involved with some of these other clubs as well. There is so much to learn from experienced off-roaders. As a matter-of-fact, I would highly discourage anyone new to 4x4 from taking their truck out on the trails by themselves until they know the basics of driving, recovery, trail etiquette, weather, vehicle maintenance, etc!

For those that want to start at the basics or build upon what you already know:


I have taken his basic and advanced recovery courses. He is entertaining and knowledgeable.

I also recommend getting the CO Trex app. It has trail info (filterable by difficulty, area, distance, etc), downloadable satellite and topo maps (good for no service areas) fun challenges, and campsite locations.
