Sunday run near phx?
Jeepers !!!

Looking to run Sunday. Ck, coke ovens. Other trails? I'm running stock jku so I'd prefer something doable. With this rain the trails should be fun and no dust. !!!

Give me about 7-8 weeks, I'll be game. I ordered my JKUR earlier this week and eagerly awaiting its arrival. :)

Went with white and the upgraded soft top.

I previously owned a white sports car when I lived in Texas and was pretty easy to keep clean. I've wanted one for quite a while and pumped that I'll have it just before my 40th birthday. I can see the trainyard from my office building in downtown and can't wait to get the notice it is on the way.

JKUdad 01-26-2013 10:47 PM

clull05rubi 01-28-2013 11:19 PM

Looks sweet great pics! Wish i woulda found this forum sooner

musicforme 01-28-2013 11:54 PM

I knew it was going to be hard waiting for my Jeep, but seeing photos like this make the wait that much harder! :)

dk1319 01-29-2013 07:05 AM

Do you think my stock jk sport will make it all the way to crown king?

JKUdad 01-29-2013 08:23 AM

Absolutely dk

Mine is a stock jku except the tires. I think I rubbed the belly twice.but with your short body you should be fine. Even with all the mud and water we saw two stock jeeps rally up there. It's all about wheel placement and being prepared. Make sure you are with someone as it takes a good part of a day and have fun !!

dk1319 01-29-2013 08:37 AM

Next time you go I would love to tag along if you don't mind. I'm always looking to go out with poeple

ferninAZ 01-29-2013 09:49 AM

Really good pics of 3 Generations of Jeeps playing together.

Matt13 01-29-2013 11:23 AM

Thanks for sharing. Hey dk- wish there were some trails a littel closer to Avondale! I'm in Laveen.

dk1319 01-29-2013 03:32 PM

Yea Matt. There's really nothing over here. The drive to lake pleasent isn't to bad it its definitely not a quick afternoon run

Tom-JK6spds 01-29-2013 09:24 PM

Hey all, I just picked up a stock unlimited Sunday and I'm itchin' to get off the pavement. I need to get some new rubber on it soon though. How much gas did youz burn btw? Not that it matters- just curious. Cool pics!

johnny102393 01-29-2013 11:54 PM

wow looks like you guys had a great time i was worryied about flash floods but me and a couple other realitivly stock vehicles would love to go

JKUdad 01-30-2013 12:02 PM

Yeah Guys its would be great to go out again and again and again.... BOX canyon? Coke ovens? Ideas? I think Sunday is off the plate " superbowl" but I could probably do this Saturday or the following weekend for sure..

>Tom, I think I used a half tank of gas for the complete trip of about 7 hours door to door. Congrats on the new Jeep !! I got my tires from discount and they have been great..

> Johnny, Yeah, we were keeping an eye on the amount of rainfall and looks of water crossings. Rain was heavy at times but no enough to flash..

> DK \ all Im always down for finding people to trail with.. If you all want to do a run lets get something organized.. Im laid back and just like getting out and enjoying the scenery..

I know Discount tire is doing a CK sponsored run march 3rd @ 7am so thats an option..
