|gregaf3||Hence the reason I normally have my .45. If the truck was not marked and I was in the middle of no where you can guarantee that I would keep moving. Lights or not, if it was that important they can call the helicopter or marked units to get me to stop|

It was a Good run
I didn't know there were trails that gnarley that close to town.
Ray didn't mention the last thing, but maybe it belongs on the chit chat thread.
We were back to 95 just doing that final tailgate when this big Dodge crew cab and shell rolls up on us. It had those little LED running lights but they lit up in flashing blue and red. This big biker-trash looking hippie gets out with a big ol' gat on his hip and a badge hanging from a string around his neck like Miami Vice.
I didn't know if this was a shakedown by police impersonators or what. The guy claimed to be a federal special agent and Ray was performing furtive movements under his seat. Since we weren't shooting or growing pot the "agent" left, but I thought maybe somebody might want to know that there are undercover in the boonies.

|raythom3||I am with you on White being a good choice for not showing scratches or even dust. White Jeeps are great looking overall.|
|05-14-2013 02:40 PM|
To be honest I got white because it hides most of the pin striping. While I would love to have a black Jeep, I could not have one with the heat and the fact that it shows everything.
If I was that worried about it I would get something like this... TrailSkinz | Skin it - Trail it - Protect it

|raythom3||Exactly, if I was going to restrict myself from the possibility of scratching the paint we would have bought a $40k Grand Cherokee. I am having an absolute blast with the Jeep, I wish I would have let my wife talk me into a Jeep when we first came to Vegas.|

|gregaf3||That trail is where I got a bunch of the pin striping from on my old jeep.|
|05-13-2013 09:32 AM|
|raythom3||It was a good run. The brush has definitely grown quite a bit since the last time I went up there. The view of Vegas was a little hazy but was visible and the temp's were in the high 60's. All in all a good day.|
|05-13-2013 12:36 AM|
|gregaf3||So how was the run?|

|CFR Marine||Hey ray if that run goes up to the snow ill be there with the kids they've never seen snow before and the mt just got dumped on. Are we headed that high sat?|

|Xodius||We did that trip back in feb and didn't have any issues. We had a full size f150 long bed, and a couple wranglers. No lockers on any of us, might just depend on the line though. We even had a stock H3 pass us when we were coming down.|
|05-08-2013 11:58 AM|
Thanks, the last time I did this I came in from the Kyle Canyon Side and made it fine with my stock Jeep, Coming up from the 95 had quite a few wash outs that are easier going down than trying to climb up. We will have to decide which way to go on Saturday.

Angel Peak - Offroading trip | EveryTrail
Here is the route that I normally take starting out from 95 right across from the Corn Creek(To Mormon Wells). Then from the summit cut out to Kyle canyon.
I like going up from the Kyle Canyon side too, but people without lockers have had issues because of the loose rock.
|05-08-2013 09:33 AM|
Meet at the Lowes north of 95 at Durango and Farm at 8:30am May 11, 2013. Gas'd up and ready to go before 9:00am.
The last time we went up there I think that it took close to 3 hours to get to the top and just a little less to get back down to the 95. FYI, I picked up Desert Pin Stripping on the way up, I don't remember any on the way down.
Weather is looking good for Saturday right now, hoping for a clear day.
|05-08-2013 12:41 AM|
Yeah I actually signed up for the dw ride. I might break off and take the side trails over to carpenters canyon though
Be pre warned that you will get some good desert pin striping on angels peak going down the Kyle canyon side. great views from up there on a clear day though.

Was thinking about joining the trip over wheeler pass a few weeks back and then noticed the number of jeeps, 30 may be just a few too many at one time Weather should be nice, so you guys should have a great trip. See you on the next one.

|jokerchief462||Ray guess what I ended up as the event host to lead the trip this Sat I have no idea how many Jeeps but I have 62 people coming so I am figuring 30+ Jeeps. I'll be available soon buddy still need to make that hike. How is the lift you had it out this weekend yes???|
|05-07-2013 06:06 PM|
OK so I know that the Desert Wranglers have a trip scheduled over Wheeler Pass this weekend. The group is full. I am up for something on the northwest part of town Saturday, say maybe Angel Peak, if anyone is interested, let know. Or if anyone has any other ideas I am open, just trying to stay on the northwest side of town.
