I am thinking of moving to Colorado in the next year or so....I have a few questions. My family and I used to drive out there every summer, we stayed at my grandma's house in Grand Junction. I absolutely loved it, I enjoyed going up on the "Monument" and walking the "Ute Canyon Trail" etc. The last time I was out there was 1993, I was 15 yrs. old. I am now interested in firearms(duh!) and very much into Jeeps. Can someone give me a basic rundown of gun laws in Colorado? Does anyone know about vehicle registration? i.e. Emissions tests, lift laws, window tint,(bumper/headlight height) engine swaps etc. How restricted are you on taking your Truck/Jeep off-road? I was too young to be interested in these things while I was out there before, so any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Colorado does its own background checks, against federal Brady laws, of course. It's a generally gun-friendly state. The only negative, if you consider it as such, is that background checks are required for any firearms purchases at gun shows. Not many states currently require this. Concealed carry requirements are a hodge-podge from county to county and city to city. There was a bill before the Colorado legislature to make these uniform, but it didn't pass. I don't think you'll be too displeased. It's a hell of a long way from being Kalifornia. [;)]

Although lift laws are threatened every year, there are none at the time, and no laws on any other vehicle mods that I know of. As a matter of fact, several guys in the four wheeling club I used to be Pres of considered it a challenge to get a "street rod" license plate...that says something for a bunch of rock-crawlers. We had one guy who could lift the front left tire of his 70'ish Land Cruiser from the ground at a stoplight. On restrictions, you just have to stay where the USFS has the little white arrows. None of use Colorado 4x'ers like non-Tread Lightly folks screwing up our reputation. Get some low gears, some lockers, and some good tires, and you can do anything, and without tearing up the ground.
