Phoenix Area!

So all the San Diego Guys have there own thread that seems to grow and grow and the seem to have alot of get togethers. Well, us Phoenix Jeepers need to communicate on whats going on and have some get-togethers ourselves. Anybody do the 4 peaks/Superstition and surrounding areas? How about any other fun trails in the Phoenix area?

Yeah, 4 peaks is a good time, I've been hearing that the Florence area has a plethora of Jeep trails down in some of the canyons back there, I'm in Gilbert so thats not too far from me. This sunday I'm gonna try to head out there and check it out. The list sounds like a good idea with that long wheelbase.

Lately I've been playing/exploring up by lake pleasant, castle hot springs...
I did the trail from Prescott down to Crown King to Bumble Bee, that was cool but I was by myself and didn't really want to do a any off-trail "exploring"...

I'd be down for a get together/trail ride....

There are tons of trails in AZ. Florence Junction, Table Mesa and the White Tanks are offroad playgrounds. They all have trails from easy to wild. I would definitely recommend joining a local club or two. Also, these books are a must http://www.4x4books.com/az.htm . Try not to go out alone.

Here are some local clubs that you should look up:

www.azjeepclub.com
www.arizonatrailways.com
www.azbackcountry.com
www.crawlinaz.com
www.virtualjeepclub.com (probably the largest club in AZ)
www.wheelingarizona.com

2005 Rubicon :
4.0 Automatic,4.11 gears,4:1 Transfer Case
Teraflex 3" Coils,Rancho 9000x's,35" KM2's,(fenders...what fenders?), Cobra CB, Lowrance Baja 480c GPS,2"Wheel Spacers, Big Daddy Tie Rod,Superior Evolution Shafts.

Hello

Hello Guys and Gals, i would love to get some more wheeling friends, i have a few but they flake out on me all the time. it would be fun to see something other then XJ's too I have done the normal butcher jones ,a lot, good for beginners, some tough stuff if you got the kahones. I have done most all trails in sedona. and for something fun and close, Sunflower mine, up 87, is rad, probably one of the best times i have had, XJ pilot and I were there a few months back, it was great.

I have never been but have heard good stuff about florence as well, my buddy with a ZR2 has been going there for many years.

next sunday huh? i will have to see if i can get out of the house, when were you thinking of meeting will H ?

Hey there! One of the infamous "San Diego Guys" here!

I think another great idea would to meet up somewhere in the middle! There are plenty of places to go on the AZ/CA border. Maybe even arrange a day or weekend were you guys drive out here and we show ya around the SD trails and you can do the same for us!

Just throwing some things out there to think about! I know I'll be in the Prescott area in July and would love to find some dirt to play in.

Prescott is nice in July, it doesn't get to be 120 like here in Mesa, its in the high 90's to low 100's, its a little more tolerable, but prescott is fun with all those pine covered mountains, I've been mountain biking through there a few time, I saw some sweet jeep trails!

I can handle the heat, heat and more heat. I was stationed in Yuma for 3 1/2 years and no place is hotter than there. Combine the 115+ degree temps with the 90% humidity and, well, you get the point. I wouldn't go anywhere south of Phoenix between May and October.

Ya know, I was in Yuma for years and never made it out to those damn dunes! The beauty of SD is we don't cook in the summer! Its not to bad of a drive either. Something like 5 hours from Phoenix I think. Let me know next time you're out here.

dang...i find this thread the day i leave arizona...lol..anyways the only trails i was able to do during the 12 weeks i was here (spent most of time wrenching on the jeep to get back and forth to class) was Montana Mt which is good for a stockish jeep and a trail called 342 or 324 that branches off or montana mt. this one i would recommend b/c the views are unbeleiveable. We didnt finshed the trail b/c the ranger that was wheeling with me couldnt make the hill climb down near the mine that the trail runs by. but never the less it was a great time. i plan on coming back next fall to hit Broken Arrow and Backway to Crownking...those i wanted to do but either mechicanical problems or fire's keep me off the trails.
