So cal Jeepers had some fun in Parker AZ

This a post from my other favorite forum, it's gonna grow some when more video and pictures get posted, we had a blast
Who ever thought about this and didn't make it ya missed out like bandits.
Curtis got us hooked up with a gentleman from the Parker 4x4 club that loves wheeling and for 2 days showed us a ton of extra credit stuff, was a ball. Jeeps dropped like flies and we created a Franken Jeep while we where add it. Amazingly it did very well today in that form. All I can say Arizona wheelin rocks. Tight twisty canyons and tons of steep waterfalls for those wonderful pucker and Oh sheat moments

Anyway, here are some of the makings of Franken Jeep kept us entertained for a few hours










Then we got around to fixing Fred's compressor it ended up with a hole in one of the pistons



Mike patching his Jeep back together.



We thought the Hammers was tough lol, actually the AZ stuff isn't as bad, but was plenty rough on some of our Jeeps. It sure was fun though, especially when somebody shows ya all the fun spots

Here are the pics I took

Since I was busy cruising my put put through the very narrow canyons and did some spotting I missed a lot of the action, Cliff has some very entertaining video clips

This is what we were doing for a good part of all 3 days



The wheelin there was very different from our normal routine. As they say variety is the spice of life. Big thanks goes to the Parker 4 wheelers club.
Their president hooked us up with a Gent named New Mexico Dave. Very entertaining gentleman with an awesome Jeep and Ultra4 buggy. He ran trails with us in both vehicles, the man knows his wheeling and knows those trails better than the lint in the pockets of his favorite pants.
Dying to get my hands on more pics and video. The roll was pretty epic and it's caught very well on video.

Andrew for your big boy built start looking at 40" Maxis kreepy krawlers.
If you set your suspension up right and roll those under there you will have an awesome performing Jeep for your neck of the woods.
Other thing I learned that was interesting is gluing the inner tire beads on your beadlocks to the rim with Urethane windshield glue, keeps the tires from burping or the inner bead from unseating

It was a barrel of fun allright. The best thing of the whole trip was that the Parker4wheeler club send us a host and tour guide that showed us all the good stuff and extra credit stuff. He had himself a ball challenging us.

Found a few more pics

One more video for the road

You're a braver man than I. Someday I might have to buy a beater jeep for such adventures. Thank you for sharing. My folks have a place in Lake Havasu and I've been to the Desert Bar with my dad's '89 YJ. Your pictures make me look at that area in a new light.
