Borrego Springs, California
 
Has anyone ever been to Borrego Springs, California? I'm really wanting to do that Jeep Jamboree this Oct.

I have pretty much a stock JK Unlimited with 33 tires and soon to be Auto Tranny cooler. Worth it?

I have never been to the Jamboree there, but have been to Borrego Springs which is in the middle of the Anza Borrego State Park, and there is some great off roading in the area.

You'll be fine. Great offroading there. Might be careful about going through the squeeze though. Don't know if you'll be too wide or not. Here's a pic of me going through it.....

Wow, that is pretty narrow... I'd still like to try!

I am probably going to buy a ticket this week. I am trying to get my old man to go as well. I think it can be a nice father-son weekend trip. Plus I am eager to meet some new Jeepers because there are not that many around here. :/

You should be fine taking your JK through the squeeze. I'd fold the mirrors in or just remove your doors/mirrors. Borrego Springs wheeling is a lot of fun. Make sure you take plenty of pics and post them up for us!! :D

:D Try to make sure you've got that aux cooler installed before and try to use 4lo when you've got some good climbs, takes the load (heat) off the tranny !!

I've never had a overheating problem... then again I haven't done any long trails with intense climbing. I want to be as prepared as I can be without breaking the bank.

And pics will happen. THe only reason I bought a camera in the first place was to take pics of me Jeep in a higher quality than my phone can. :D

:D Yea, the aux cooler will cost you less than $80 bucks and if you Google-- JK auto aux cooler--

You'll get lots of info on installation and it'll make a world of difference !!

Good luck
