Rides in Southern Nevada

New to Southern Nevada area (Mesquite) and looking forward to all the great rides in the area. I have met a few people that have jeeps and are like myself, like to ride but not looking for rocking crawling. Last weekend and, after a good breakfast at Sugars on Overton, we headed to the Bitter Spring County Byway. All I can say about that trail is "been there done that" and can't endorse that trail.

Today we are heading to Lime Kiln and then to Whitney Pockets.

Just having fun in Southern Nevada and loving it

Take Harrison pass to the saddle and head north up gravel road. Go through gate and take the bowl around the east side stay right go through gate and head up that mountain. Then continue up/down that road. It will kick you out onto...228 I think it is. Awesome country and some fun areas. Nothing "extreme" but still fun. Might get interesting if stock and possibly stuck as clearance is needed in a couple areas.
As for here in Vegas, I have an ultrasound on my thyroid sat. not looking forward to it but know that a probe is not required so that makes me feel better. Nothing like a huge a$$ needle stabbed into your throat.
My wife had that biopsy done. That is one gnarly procedure!

jokerchief462 Looking at the radar not going to be today. Back is acting up so I will just kick back and take some pills for pain and spasms.

Next weekend I am open on Sunday.

Willson I know this is a Jeep thread and all... but my wife got me into a little project with her sisters mini S. Putting in a new clutch, I've been following a schematic for a 2002-2008 version, hers is a 2010 and things are in different places but it's been going along great so far. I've got the front wheels off, the shrouds around them, front bumper, crash bars, axles out, linkage off the tranny, slave cylinder off, and next I think is the starter on my list. I was just wondering if anyone knew of a more updated how to? I've looked on mini forums, YouTube videos but everything is older versions.

Posted another thread. Do you anticipate taking your arsenal? If so I may hang back a little and just meet you at the shooting area, just let me know what time you think that you may plan on being done and I will gauge my timing around that.

Hey Rocky,

Looks like I have to go into work Saturday in the AM, since I chose to go and play a little today. I could go Sunday if you are interested.

raythom3 I made it with our jeep when it was stock. I won't guarantee that you won't scrap a skid plate but there is only one area that is slightly difficult. You just need to take the right path. There are some groups that will run more of the washes but I stay on the trail for the most part.
08-06-2014 05:15 PM
Buddylee I might be able to go, how difficult is the Rocky Gap?
08-06-2014 03:26 PM
raythom3 I'm game for Saturday. Rocky Gap???
08-06-2014 11:57 AM
Relocatedduckman Anyone doing any trails the next few days. I'm coming to Vegas today -Friday or Saturday.

RepairMan Glad to see the yj is getting back into shape. I just had to put an adjustable front track bar in mine.
08-03-2014 12:09 AM
jokerchief462 Just got most of my parts. Did the front and rear brakes, hubs up front, rear axle seals and a rear pinion leak.

Just need to get a brake booster and master set up and should be back on the road.

Hope to be done when it starts to cool off.

Feeling pretty good after 8 hours working on the heap.

rockey8279 Hardly a new motor with 67000 miles on it.
08-02-2014 09:10 PM
raythom3 Those wheels just don't work on that jeep. But whatever floats his boat, right!
08-02-2014 09:09 PM
raythom3 It is a similar color, but mine is a JK, don't you have a TJ? What year is it?
08-02-2014 07:20 PM
RepairMan It would match yours Ray
08-02-2014 05:51 PM
raythom3 Is that why we haven't seen you in a while, hard to wheel with 26"s isn't it??
