And just to clarify, you got the service message while in Rock mode, OR1 height with 4L?

Yes. Right before we started the climb I switched to 4LO. I am almost 100% sure I switched to Rock mode but then a bit later changed the ride height to OR1 as Ophir while narrow and steep, didn't have a lot of ground clearance concerns. I did leave in OR2 on the upper Camp Bird road leading to the Imogene Basin...there were ground clearance and approach/departure angle concerns there.

I didn't mention this before, but I really like the hill descent control, especially when creeping down some of the rock outcrops into the dips on the upper Camp Bird road. That little feature just allowed me to work the throttle and letting off the throttle allowed the jeep to descend down the rock into the dip as smooth and gentle as a baby being place in a crib.

Beautiful photos. I wish Jeep didn't drop Inferno Red after 2011, I much prefer it to the darker Deep Cherry color that replaced it in 2012+.

Beautiful shots. Imogene is a saucy wench, prettiest part of Colorado.

Are you taking your WK2 down Black Bear? It'll be interesting to see how that goes...it was closed when I was there. Seems like I saw some posted notes somewhere in Telluride last week that there was going to be some special up hill run of Black Bear this year. Not that I have the guts to try it either way. I have only seen BB from a distance in Telluride/Imogene. I've seen video of runs from the top, that first descent past the point of no return gets my heart going just watching it on YouTube! I would imagine it is doable, I just hear that you need either lockers of some sort (check) and/or decent articulation (not so much).

Anyway, look forward to those pics. I wish I could have made the trip later this month instead of so early. But even then, they had so little snow that way more trails were open than normally would be in early June.

I agree and also wonder about Black Bear. I didn't get to run it or Imogene last year due to snow, but I wasn't in the Jeep. Dont think I would attempt BB in the Grand Cherokee.

And I thought that BB was run in reverse once a year.
