Need help with my JK guys

What's going on guys. New to the forum here, some pretty good info so far. Well I recently destroyed the suspension on my 13 JKU and tipped her on her side. As fun as that was I totaled her ,
however I bought her back and now need to her back on her wheels.

If anyone is in Arizona and knows where to get some cheap parts please let me know. I Basically need all new front axle, suspension and misc steering parts. I will know more after I rip into her next weekend.

Jeepnut14 I'm gonna be in Goodyear for work for an extended amount of time. Are there any good local trails for noobs?

HSKR4X4 You don't need a pass unless you park just so you guys know. I will be up there all day today and some of tomorrow if anyone wants to wheel.

Shoot me an email at hskr4x4@gmail.com

Chunkeydunkin Yeah, it is a sandy wash, fairly short. I have a buddy of mine who takes his Subaru Impreza AWD out and has no problem... except for the fact that he tends to pop his front bumper off every now and then lol. There is nothing real technical about it. Just a nice drive and should be good enough to find out if I have any issues with the lift install. There is one location along the trail we like to call "photo rock" that we drive up on and take pics, but that is optional.

If you still want to get one that's up to you.
is it an easy trail ?

Sorry, didn't realize.

Put these into Google Earth and it will take you to the Needle Rock turn off.
Lat: 33.741513°
Long: -111.671922°

(Actual input format: 33.741513°, -111.671922°)

Put these into Google Earth and it will take you to the start of the trail.

Lat: 33.772462°

(Actual input format: 33.772462°, -111.665315°)

Tentatively we will meet at 9150 E Indian Bend Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85258 ‎ at 6:30AM and wait for people to show up until about 7:00AM then head up after everyone gets there. If this changes then I will let everyone know.

Hope this helps!

This is a simple trail, its a sandy wash bottom with lots of bumps. Nothing to really write home about but it should be enough to test the new suspension. Let me know!

Haha my gf and I went alone and ran into them on the trail. Only talked to two of them for a few minutes so I'm not gonna pass judgement. But thank you for the heads up always appreciated.

Lumberjack Went out to trail 10 near and to bulldog canyon then had some fun at the playground today at the end :-) first time out with my rubicon and loved it. The RE lift is amazing and I couldn't be happier also saw a few other jeeps out the and talked to them. The group I saw said they were from the virtual jeep club so I'll have to check that out. Anyways had a blasty blast. I'll be going again this week whomever wants to join.

BI-POLAR
Dec 15th

Couple pics of last Sunday
I'm sorry about the upside down pic, can't figure out why the computer turned it and cant turn it back...
12-22-2013 04:00 PM
BI-POLAR I'm meeting a couple people at Lake Pleasant and Carefree Hwy on Christmas day at noon. We are going to do a very senic loop north of Lake Pleasant that a stock jeep with small tires can do. A lot of graded roads but a little bit of fun stuff. Its pretty much an intro to what your Jeep can do. Let me know if you want to tag along or maybe just wave if we see you out on the trails.
12-14-2013 02:38 AM
Lumberjack I'm heading to bulldog canyon in the morning if anyone wants to meet there or at the permit place.
12-01-2013 09:32 PM
BI-POLAR I might go do the loop north of pleasant next Sunday if anyone wants to tag along. You can do it in a stock jeep without getting any damage. Very scenic but boring for "kwralers". Ill be at the Wild Horse at 8. should be back at the wild horse by 1 or 2.

sittingduck331 In Moab we did;

Hells Revenge, 2 times. ran Hells Gate and Escalator, however I did not do Escalator.
Fins and Things, 2 times with Porcupine Ridge once.
Moab Rim, all of it.
Kane Creek. Hell of a trek.
Poison Spider, 2 times. Forwards then backwards including all the lookouts.

We are going up for Easter Jeep Safari but staying an extra week.

8008135 If that location is empty we will be camping there. Feel free to join us. Heading up in the morning and wheeling all day Saturday and some Sunday before we head back.
11-28-2013 07:41 PM
8008135 Not yet! Damn we wanted to go back to Moab. Perhaps a spring trip?

On a side not, got back from Moab a few weeks ago. Went for 5 days, then again for 2 (for work) what a hell of a place (all puns intended)

On a evan further side note, your jeep lifted yet?
