9/7 - 9/8/2019: Charouleau Gap Overnight (near Tucson, AZ)

Recommended Posts

thanks @Bradywgn71 (Chris) and @kaspily (Sarah) for leading a good overnighter on Charouleau Gap.

 

the trail is very overgrown and several areas are really washed out, i'd definitely rate this as a "difficult" currently. a good lift with excellent articulation is key - my JK Unlimited was on 2 wheels several times with its 4" short arm lift and 35's.

 

it ended up just being Chris & Sarah, myself and @gearhead - just like 5 or 6 years ago when we did this same run together!

 

since i didn't take any photos, all i can offer you is links to Sarah's videos of myself and Chris on "The Step" obstacle (if you have a Facebook account):

We had a fun time but were surprised by how hard this has become.

 

I'm currently sitting at Letzroll waiting to see how much of a fight to get them to fix the steering that never should have come apart. Turns out one ton steering needs more than three threads holding it together!! I'll post a trip report hopefully this week.

 

Update: They quickly fixed it with the correct length steering bar and longer heim joint. Thankfully they took care of it for us!
