Sat pm & DW

I'm down for the mine saturday, too. [Mormon Well sunday, too, but that's another thread.]


My 2012's starting a little shimmy, especially when aired down on asphalt. The oscillations seem to self-dampen for now. Thanks for the tips.


Another half day idea sometime would be those dirt roads between the north side of the Flamingo sanctuary and Lake Mead. They're not real Jeepy - a sedan could make it - but they weave through some nice mud canyons. I like to keep these in my back pocket for out-of-town guests because it's only a couple of hours and they're so mellow.
One of 'em's called Rainbow Garden, I think.
If anyone's interested, start a thread.

LVRaptor I used to have an 08 FJ Cruiser and ran/run with Sin City wicked FJ's, anyways Nick over there is a huge mine and ghost town trail leader. We just did a run to one of the biggest gold mines in Nevada not to long ago hittin up a few other abandoned ones on the way. They are very interesting to see and visit.

RepairMan I always like to see old mines and ghost towns.

Xodius That Ada and Edith mine might be interesting. I have not gone to that one either but have been on the trail head a couple times. Hmmm. Might need lockers for that one. It was pretty interesting last time I went that way. That is where the two pines are super close to one another and sometimes you need to have your mirrors in to get past. I say sometimes only due to the size/width of your vehicle.

Xodius Sounds good. Will probable get a group run for that area later this month or next.

As for the DW, I would first check all the bolts and check for extra play in joints and what not. I don't think it would be the SS but I could be wrong there.

jokerchief462 pat65th there are tons of threads using the search on DW. Simple is rotate and balance sometimes it goes away but DW simply put is when the aggregate of all components vibrate in rythym giving the great scary DW. It could be anything from tires to ball joints, tie rod ends, shocks, wheel bearings, steering stabilizer. So after reading the threads and some have the solutions to that particular problem make a checklist of items to check from easy to hard cheap to expensive and see whats up with you rig.

pat65th just joined yesterday, still trying to figure things out

I wouldn't mind checking it out. I went up a few weeks ago to try and find it with a buddy of mine but we ended up on the wrong road and got side tracked with the old car cemetery up by the heliport. (cars are getting removed FYI not as cool as it was a couple years ago.)
I'm so in! Side tracking is fine also lol

Haha. Try posting this in the general discussion threads. You'll have much better luck getting an answer.

gregaf3 could be many things. First hijack a thread, then check your track bar bolts to ensure they are tight.


Ha Ha

I'm in the next time you go to investigate, if you don't mind an extra vehicle tagging along.

Mine near charleston

Have any of you hit it? My wife and I got fairly close one before but the trail got a bit too interesting for my modified KJ. The JK should walk through to it.
It is located pretty much in the middle between Kyle and lee canyons. About half way up.
