    Hello everyone! Excited to announce the Offroad Passport Club's 2024 Event Lineup! There are 12 official events on the 2024 itinerary! Many are multi-day overland style adventures, along with day/night runs, the Holiday Party and the 15th Annual Dirt Formal Gala (which is returning to the Cinders for 2024!) Trail ratings range from easy to extreme, and are located primarily in Arizona, though we'll also visit California, Nevada, Colorado, and Utah! Some trips are live NOW - others will be posted and opened for sign-ups as the year goes on. Be sure to check out the Adventures section of the site from time to time to keep on top of the latest! Massive thanks to all of the club members who stepped up and volunteered to plan and lead these trips. These folks were willing to commit to leading their adventures well in advance so that other ORP members can plan ahead. We also try to have a full year's worth of events on the calendar so prospective new members can see what a vibrant and active club this is! Most of these trips are open to members of the Offroad Passport Club only, so if you haven't upgraded yet - don't miss out! The Holiday Party and the Dirt Formal Gala are open to any basic members.

    That's one hell of a calendar line-up! Huge props to @4x4tographer, @shellback91, and @gearhead for taking the initiative to plan and lead so many wonderful adventures. I think @Ladybug might have a trip or two up her sleeve still as well. Everyone be sure to thank these guys when you attend one of their trips! Just FYI, last minute runs are OK too. I know a lot of us randomly get the urge to do a day or night run on an upcoming weekend. If anyone ever needs help posting to the calendar or forum, just PM me. We'd love for you to share a run on this site! It coudl be "open to anyone" or for "club members only", it's totally up to you as the leader who can attend and what rig limit you are comfortable with. I look forward to seeing all of you on a trail sometime in 2024!

    Awesome day on the trails with @theksmith @kaspily @Bradywgn71 @gmookher! Massive thanks to @theksmith for planning/leading this rock crawling adventure. Great seeing @Curly and Mrs. Curly at breakfast! That was a nice surprise. 😊 We even had a @Eugene sighting - Cottonwood was an ORP magnet today! *click on any photo for the full-resolution image* The road out to Smasher. Ledge, ledges and more ledges! From mild to wild, there's something for everyone. Plenty of rock gardens to keep you on your toes. "The Squeeze" was filled with loose boulders. No room for error on this one - literally 2-3 inches away from fender damage. Note the broken window glass on the ground at the top of the ledge. A look back at Mingus. More ledges! Our lunchtime views Look closely and you'll spy the Verde Canyon Railroad tracks.

    So this is pretty cool. Frank joined me and a friend on Bulldog Friday. Thanks Ryan! Your mention got my attention and I PM'd him. Anyways, we are hanging out at the entrance gate, airing down, setting up lunch, etc. A guy name Joel comes over and asks us how he gets a permit. We give him the info and tell him, if he wants, he can tag along with us. He does. We get to our the first stop. A beautiful spot with great views. Unfortunately some time ago some jerk dumped 6 old used worthless tires there. I mentioned next time my buddy shows up with his J10 we will haul them out. Without hesitation Joel said "No Problem I'll get rid of them". So our tag along friend had us toss them in the back of his pickup. What luck! Hopefully he will join the site. Super great guy. We had a nice time. Friday was a great day to be out wheeling. Temps were perfect and the rain the night before meant no dust on the trail.

    Please sign me and the 2 boys up for the trail ride (3 total). I'll bring the condiments and fixings. 🍅🧅 We're actually going to RV camp at Desert Tortoise Campground on Friday and Saturday nights. If anyone else is considering doing the same, please let me know. Mike

    got on Metalcloak's CTI trailer at a local shop yesterday. only scored a 770, which is a bit disappointing... with the current level of mods i expected to at least break 800. still better than the last time though! in 2018 Gadget had just a baby lift and tires and scored a 600. i did find it interesting that the JL's consistently out-flexed the JK's (comparing similar tire size and overall rig height, all short-arm lifts).

    I had such a fun time even without my Jeep ;) Thanks Kristoffer and Ryan for your passenger seats. It was a nice surprise to see Tim, Devon, and Michael at breakfast! Our ORP newbie Gem and his wife Vim kicked butt and I hope to see them at the Holiday Party coming up. What a fun trail! Here are my photos and videos.

    Good evening everyone, I dusted off the cobwebs and will be setting up a new club membership tomorrow, if you'll have me. You've got some good looking events on your calendar. It's been a long time. Chad

    Good morning, I just joined, and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Chad and this is my 14 JKR. I've been a follower for a while but never a member. I recently retired from President from Copperstate 4 Wheelers though still a member, I wanted to branch out, meet some new people, and reacquaint myself with some old friends. I am an I4WDTA trainer and I've very active in the 4x4 scene. I've got a Youtube channel called The Right Line and that's where I post all my adventures including my overland trailer build. I'm looking forward to some ORP trips.

    Welcome! I am glad you joined! I was super happy to find this club when the virtual jeep site died. It's a great group of folks!

    Thanks for putting this together! Currently I (yes me, not my Jeep) am out of commission with a sprained ankle. I am going to sign up for some of these runs. And I plan on putting together the classic 'Florence box canyon' run sometime soon. You can also count on me to hit Bull Dog Canyon a few times this season (once my foot heals), so watch for those posts as well. My stupid foot! I am missing all of the nice weather.

    there's a hole in the fill tube and so it leaks with too much roll or upward pitch. low priority issue! that might not be what leaked on the rock, but it's in the right spot for that. i haven't done a full post-trip underbelly inspection yet though.

    Poking @theksmith and @gmookher did either of you have a fluid leak on the trail? Notice the rock just behind me, that appears fresh from the photo's perspective, but it isn't from me, I just double checked my entire underside.

    I agree 100% on OEM where ever possible on my own vehicles. It is certainly possible that frame flex is contributing to your failures. To further support using OEM radiators. It’s my experience, that there is almost always accelerometer data collected on the radiator during a full vehicle data collection test. This info is provided to the OEM vendor for their in house testing. I seriously doubt that many of the after market companies are using this type of data for their testing, if they are even doing any testing. I agree with your online selection. That is the vendor I use for my MOPAR parts. Saving the shipping is a good deal
