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.

Is there a location on the rubicon that you will be focusing on during that run in July?

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

I go up to Gilbert almost every year with my fourwheeler, and this year I'll probably bring the jeep up for some fun too. we usually go around memorial day or labor day last year my group did 2 trips. Its fun up there for a long weekend

The jeep is much more fun to drive though.

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

love my jeep
hate Minnesota damnn winters and salt

mn jk jeeper 02-11-2013 11:38 PM

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
