I estimate I was north of 16,000lbs towing the TJ, all our gear, tools, 2 adults, 2 kids. Set the cruise at 80 the entire way, except for in the mountains, which as you know is really slow going at times (amazing that those few hundred miles of slowish mountain roads dropped my average speed that much!)

Pretty happy with the fuel consumption and time especially, considering I had my 6 and 7 year old boys in the back seat
Sounds like a great trip. We went to a small town called Rangely, CO on the Utah border in northwest CO and hunted Cathedral Mountain and did some trout fishing. Campsite was about ten miles back off the paved roads. It took a brave dozier operator to build those roads hanging off the side of those mountains with what looked like thousands of feet of sheer drop off one side. We roughed it in tents. I've made two trips out there and had a great time each trip. The part of the state I was in had very few trees, mostly bushes I think called ironwood that resembles the little bushes we have around here but will flat out lift an entire four wheeler (ATV) off the ground if you try to run over them. Surprised the hell out of me to have all four tires lifted off the ground by a little scrawny 18" tall bush. It's beautiful country even if it does resemble hell with the fires put out.
