good pick, it seems less nuanced than gold mine, but it looks tougher. you might want to take that into consideration when testing. I will miss gold mine hill.

Time Machine Tour T-Shirt. Nuff said about that. I know its hard to leave Boulder, but there is amazing stuff close to I-70. couple of things that come to mind right away for SUVs, like FSR 246.1 9 miles outside of Idaho Springs, and for Hard core SUVs, the network of trails on saxon mountain between Idaho Springs and Georgetown. and a few epic places to photograph cars on tailings piles with Mt. Evans in the background. so whether its cliffhanger 2.0(which i love) or something else, you'll be fine. ;)

Do you have a rating for offroad mods? I understand that your project vehicles are one offs, but having a separate rating for the mods lets viewers know if they have that vehicle if its an improvement or not.

I liked the Hummer gold mine hill episode. Showed people that it does great off road. No struggles at all.

I see many complaints about the presenters of this channel, however I do not understand what damn they are doing here, they can look for another channel where to spit their hatred ... Now got angry because they aren't professional actors?? Wtf?

Hey, on your ORI test episodes, y'all could start putting shout outs to local OHV/4x4 clubs that help keep those trails open. I know the one that I am a part of (NORAC 4x4 Club) works extensively with the Boulder Ranger District and puts in hundreds of volunteer hours each year to keep trails like these maintained and open. Garnering support for them would make your jobs easier and help keep the trails open!

Just because some hippie puts up a fence doesn't mean it's legitimate. Just tear that fence down and drive on.

Do you have windshield wind noice?
Any one ??
I drive a 2019 Jr. with 500 miles and I have wind noice from the windshield. It’s my first Jeep

Pretty normal for jeeps to have wind noise because they are not aerodynamic at all and because of the removable top.

If people don’t fight for the right to use the land the government will shut you out. Fight for your tails to stay open. Volunteer to clean those trails and maintain them

Kinda sad that its mandated that vehicles need and have rearview cameras. How lazy this generation as gotten to depend on technology rather than the old fashion method of using mirrors and lookin over your shoulder through the back window

Colorado is going the way of Oregon. Almost every trail within an hour of me has been sold to a tree hugging organization or turned into hiking trails.

Being Australian I thought you had finally caught up with the news that General Motors - Holden (GMH) had closed production in Australia. Or maybe they were closing down the brand because their products don't sell without the "made in Australia for Australian conditions" rubbish.
Glad you found a new place to rip up.

Not sure what to think- perhaps knowing why Gold Mine Hill was closed will aid thought...

BLM, otherwise known as the Bureau of Land Management. You have to ask yourself...Is the road out of the way, pretty much inaccessible you may have been driving over or using areas set aside as a fire break or some other type government road that is normally cut off. 
Some body probable removed the signs, BLM ranger driving threw the area closed the road permanently
Government Agency's as the BLM, use roads of these types as fire breaks.
Find a local BLM ranger office in the area and call them, ask.;

That looks like a pretty lame trail. Maybe it just isn't captured well on camera.

I camped up there a few weeks ago. Made it to the top in a two wheel drive ford ranger with hardly any issues except that one big tree root.

Is there a list anywhere of all vehicle results attempting Gold Mine Hill? Curious to see what made it through each stage.

the reason people live on the streets is that every other square inch of property is owned, managed, pay park, leased to cows, but people have no place else to go. maybe we should back legislate these laws and free up some land for people as well as wild animals.

You guys should see how far you can get that Rubicon up Lake Como road. That should really show where the limits of its capabilities lie. Or perhaps you're scared of one of the "Jaws" ruining a test vehicle? I could see that.

I've watched and enjoyed, liked and commented on many videos in the past ( beginning with GMH and the Suby ;) and often have comments/suggestions while viewing the videos. Ultimately, I enjoy the entertainment this channel provides.
It is, however, important you recognize and realize your reach and influence. It's appreciated that TFL is putting a well-funded layman's effort into helping viewers with auto-related decisions and questions, and as such it is important that you recognize and accept the responsibility you've accepted in being public figures with over 3/4 million subscribers.
19:56 "We always try to give back and clean up."
Oh really? Do you have "we support or public lands" videos or promote, sponsor or participate in trail clean-ups? ... ever ...
Profiteering on public lands, you should read up on he legalities of the endeavors you partake in.

20:09 Roman: "Leave nothing behind but flowers, right guys, that's the rule."
And your grafitti, Roman? Boo. That's amazingly poor form, and videoed for perpetuity on the internet.

I do enjoy the channel and will continue watching, however please take a moment, have a meeting, really talk it out and consider your influence and measure on your viewers, If those are values and ethics important to you.

ciao and stay safe out there.
