I friend of mine asked me to take him and his new rig up to Crown King this Sunday April 21st.
Will be meeting up Sunday between 8:00am-8:30am at the McDonalds/Frys parking lot located on Carefree highway and I-17 on the North East side of the road (can not miss it). Other groups will be there as well I am sure.
I have ran this many times in a stock 4x4 with no issues. The run is very safe and is a lot of fun.
The trail will have others on it from Motorcycles to full on rock buggies. No shortage of people.
You can choose to bypass any of the hard trails as we make our way up.
Trip will be most of the day (about 4-5 hours) to get up. Once up there, eat lunch check out the beautiful area. Then drive down a graded dirt road (with killer views) back at the I-17 and Bloody Basin Rd in less then an hour.
Yes i can just dint have a welder lol dont have that kind of money. Well i dont know exactly how it broke but the last run i did was the back way to crown king. I hit all the hills i passed one but i am not sure if it was cracked before i went. I found out that my control arms where upside down(the oil sert was pointed down not up ) ill try and post a pic of it but it put alot of pressure on the mount when flexed out. I got the jeep with the procomp lift on it
You do not need a 100k rock buggy to make the trip.
I have done it in a 4x4 stock Toyota Truck, many of time.
You can brake off any time you want, again this is just a show and tell trip for anyone who wants to be shown the way up.
Once we get to Crown King, again you can brake off and check out the town, views...
Feel free to eat anywhere you want. Do what ever you want... You do NOT have to eat with anyone going up in the group. In other words, if you just want to be shown how to get to Crown King but not be stuck with anyone you do not know. That is perfectly acceptable.
