I've heard that the truck junkyard on lake mead and I-15 is where they take all the wranglers but I havent been there in forever. I may check it out sometime just to see exactly what they have.

Yeah it'd be nice to find one around here. Up in Seattle there's a guy who has a jeep junkyard. He has any and all parts at his house its actually quite nice. And when I say house I don't mean a house I mean a huge 2 story garage with multiple levels and a lift and 6 rooms added on that all on 2-3 acres.

He ships stuff I do know that and his prices are CHEAP as hell, When I lived up there I got axles all day for like 50$, tranny's for 100$ so here's a good place to ask for parts.

Anyone know a good jeep mechanic here in Vegas? Want to get my 2.5 and ax5 tuned up/overhauled and need someone knowledgeable and trustworthy. My last guy had a substance problem and disappeared but man was he good. About to get my lift done, new steering box, wheel bearings, ball joints and gas tank upgraded, want to get all my mechanicals looked at too

1988 YJ 2.5, again!

went down to the river with the women today, and their little brother.

Cranes Nest Rd.



A lil wild life...



it was freakin HAWT


full size is right. It sucks not being able to see your tires sticking out the side like a TJ. My woman couldnt even guide me through this slot. "you're going to hit a rock! go THAT way"

"uh....i need to hit a rock to fit and which way is THAT way?" hahaha. I think it'd be easier for her if she understood what a tire can drive over?


















vital signs were good even though it was like 108* the truck got a little warm on the way out (up hill, loose gravel, 4wd) but it only barely touched 210*. I had ZERO of the heat associated problems I've had in the past. thank you, electric fuel pump!

Cross the bridge over into AZ then drive 3 or 5 miles into AZ. You'll eventually see a paved road parking area kinda thing on your right, with a dirt road coming off of it. Take that. The trail is about 3-4 miles down to the end I think, then you walk .4 miles to the water.

Real easy to find.

Based on the pics, it looks like Cranes Nest Road.

You can download a Google Earth file from there.

I totally missed that you identified the road at the start of the post. Oops. I saw the first pic and recognized those cliffs right off the bat. Do you guys ever to the Old Ranger Station Road just to the south? There's one stretch of the drive that is a bit more tricky, but it's the same idea. You cruise down to a place where the canyon becomes impassible to any jeeps that can't hover, and it's a short hike to the water from there. Can't say I'm doing either until September though, at the earliest.

You can download a KML of my GPS track from the road. There's a point about halfway down the road where you make a left uphill into a little side wash and a sharp right out of the wash that threw me off the first time I went down there because there are a lot of "don't drive here" type signs and the right turn isn't apparent until you're right on top of it. The trail isn't difficult, but it's more difficult than Crane's nest. Also, the hike into the river has a few easy drops (and then climbs), but nothing you should have trouble with.
