    2010 JK-R "vaal"

    Background I owned a 1978 Toyota FJ-40 in the Seattle - Tacoma area in the eighties. I had wanted a Jeep but that's what was approved by my dad for my "acquisition". After a few years of high maintenance and (gasp 10mpg) I let the vehicle go for something more economical. Just a few trips into the forest and many ski trips to take advantage of 4WD. Fast forward to January of 2014 and my acquisition of the '10 JK-R. On my second day of ownership my daughter and I took the Jeep out for a little Tonto trail ride and came across ORP, met Diane and the club by the Verde River and from then started attending ORP events and learning about my Jeep. 2010 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon had these notable mods when I bought it: 2.5" Terraflex Lift 35x12.5x17 Mickey Thompson MTR Chrome Tip Dual Exhaust with glass packs Chromed Running Step/Bars K&N Cold Air Intake Short Headers I knew that the chrome step boards were "fake" and were not sliders and they were the first item to be damaged and removed in favor of true steel rubi-rails. Within a year I made these changes: Removed damaged plastic chrome running boards & replaced with steel sliders. Removed Cold Air Intake & replaced with stock air box/filter. Removed flattened chromed duals tips and glass packs & replaced with single Magnaflow exhaust Added a Cobra CB with 5' Firestick / 3' Shorty for around town, garaging. New Jeep: First Trail Ride: Over the next few years with the jeep I enjoyed multiple trail rides with ORP and reviewed the capabilities of other Jeeps and started to develop a strategy (and savings) for the next "Jeep 2.0" which arrived in May of 2018. Details on the "Jeep 2.0" ...
  13. Saturday October 20th 8AM Heading to Sedona to run Broken Arrow. This is the premier "Pink Jeep Tour" and the notable "Stairs". At this time I plan to take Schnebly Hill Rd. down to Sedona prior to Broken Arrow. https://offroadpassport.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5497
  14. Heading to Bagdad to explore some alternative routes into the Prescott West forest. This is exploratory and I don't have an exact routing. I will post some pictures from a pre-run earlier this August and additional details in the next few days. https://offroadpassport.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5498
  15. RESCHEDULED! Saturday Nov 3rd Heading to Bagdad to explore some alternative routes into the Prescott West forest. This is exploratory and I don't have an exact routing. I will post some pictures from a pre-run earlier this August and additional details in the next few days. Meet Up 9AM @ McDonalds in Wickenberg. Depart 9:15AM Meet Up 10:15 @ Conoco Station Baghdad Takes about 1 hour to get to Bagdad where we will fuel up. I have some ideas on exploring alternatives to Camp Wood Road prior to the forest. The goal is to exit the National Forest on the east side and have dinner in the Prescott area (see below). I am classifying this as a DIFFICULT due to the exploratory nature of this run. End: Left-Ts Steakhouse, Dewey, AZ for Dinner. http://www.steaksaz.com REQUIREMENTS: - High-clearance vehicle, a 3+ lift with oversize A/T or M/T tires - Working CB (Ch 4) Optional HAM 146.460mhz - Drivers and vehicles must meet all state/federal legal requirements (seatbelts, insurance, etc.) Attending: (limited to 5 rigs) 1.

  16. Saturday October 20th 8AM. Meetup changed. Heading to Sedona to run Broken Arrow. This is the premier "Pink Jeep Tour" and the notable "Stairs". At this time I plan to take Schnebly Hill Rd. down to Sedona prior to Broken Arrow. I have heard that this road is bumpy, so be prepared for that. I'd like to picnic broken arrow @ Chicken Point about 1pm. Bring Chairs. I will provide brownies too. I am classifying this is moderate, however, some of the optional diversions can be difficult. Meet Up: _Flexible_ Post or PM Takes about 1.5 hours from PHX to the trailhead on I-17 (95 Miles) Be prepared for mud on the upper half of Schnebly Hill Rd. End: After Broken Arrow light exploring and dinner in Sedona OR Return back to Phoenix on your own. REQUIREMENTS: - High-clearance vehicle, a mild lift with oversize A/T or M/T tires - Working CB (Ch 4) Optional HAM 146.460mhz - Drivers and vehicles must meet all state/federal legal requirements (seatbelts, insurance, etc.) RECOMMENDATIONS: - Camera! - Rear-Lockers (if you want to take on the optional climbs) - Hiking Boots (if you want to climb around submarine rock for some good pictures) - Airing down will help the bump(s) on the first run and seriously improve traction on the red rock. Attending: (limited to 5 rigs) 1. SonoranWanderer 2. 3. 4. 5.
  17. The Jeep does have a name.... It's "Vaal" Is a retro-active build thread worth doing? I don't want to bore anyone
