Sunday run near phx?

Jeepers !!!

Looking to run Sunday. Ck, coke ovens. Other trails? I'm running stock jku so I'd prefer something doable. With this rain the trails should be fun and no dust. !!!

Went with white and the upgraded soft top.

I previously owned a white sports car when I lived in Texas and was pretty easy to keep clean. I've wanted one for quite a while and pumped that I'll have it just before my 40th birthday. I can see the trainyard from my office building in downtown and can't wait to get the notice it is on the way.

I knew it was going to be hard waiting for my Jeep, but seeing photos like this make the wait that much harder!

Absolutely dk


Mine is a stock jku except the tires. I think I rubbed the belly twice.but with your short body you should be fine. Even with all the mud and water we saw two stock jeeps rally up there. It's all about wheel placement and being prepared. Make sure you are with someone as it takes a good part of a day and have fun !!

Yeah Guys its would be great to go out again and again and again.... BOX canyon? Coke ovens? Ideas? I think Sunday is off the plate " superbowl" but I could probably do this Saturday or the following weekend for sure..

>Tom, I think I used a half tank of gas for the complete trip of about 7 hours door to door. Congrats on the new Jeep !! I got my tires from discount and they have been great..

> Johnny, Yeah, we were keeping an eye on the amount of rainfall and looks of water crossings. Rain was heavy at times but no enough to flash..

> DK \ all Im always down for finding people to trail with.. If you all want to do a run lets get something organized.. Im laid back and just like getting out and enjoying the scenery..


I know Discount tire is doing a CK sponsored run march 3rd @ 7am so thats an option..
