Gilbert sounds like a good time, lets wait till we get a little closer and have more details.

Jamboree sounds fun but trying to get to the Rubicon in July. The trip will be Epic. We'll have jeeps from AZ, Canada, SoCal and hopefully MN.

$275 seems expensive for the jamboree. Payed $125 for three days of wheeling in Las Cruces which included food and camping. We will have to see.

We are going to run the whole trail. Planning on taking three days and camping on the trail.

Just supercharge the jeep then you'll have the best of both worlds

got into the jeep this weekend replaced the ball joints with h/d ones
replaced inner axle seals
installed new outer axle seals
new brakes all corners
tried for new u joints in the steering axle shafts to find they are nla
so I ordered a set of ten factory shafts to replace them
everything was very rusted and seized and a hell of a time but hopefully will be back to driving tomarrow as I had the shafts next day aired
