What's everyone up to around AZ?

Been seeing the SoCal WF group have started getting together for some wheelin lately. Just curious if any of the AZ crew are up for a run or at the least up for a Meet and Greet some night at one of our fine local watering holes?

Anybody game?

You are thinking Mid May and you are correct. It's the 11th, 12th, and 13th. Joe and I will be heading up there on Friday morning with the jeeps and the motorhome. I was going to mention this to you when the time got closer. Shhhhhh, don't tell anyone we don't have XJ's (Since it's the Arizona XJ run, don't worry the owner of AZXJ doesn't have one either)

But yeah, that will deffinatly be something to do then.

That's no worries boss, there will be plenty of times to come. We'll be up there all weekend. I think you know Joe and I's rigs well enough to come up and say high when you see us.

Been up there right after snow melt. When the last fall is completely full to the right of it. Definitely makes for a different experience not being able to see the bottom.

I'd say 4"... but depending on the company, a 3" might do.

I've heard lots of good things about the Full Traction 3" and have seen people run 33" tires. But they run the stock control arms. I'd prolly go for the RUbicon Express 3.5" basic kit w/ a new trac bar.

It appears that I'm the only one from AZ that's not up around Phoenix. Stationed down in Yuma at MCAS. Not the greatest place ever, but hey........

Oh yeah, and my air conditioner in my house just broke, so that's really good.

LoL - That sucks! I'm 70+ miles from Phoenix, so I don't get to play with everyone either.
