My Trip to Tucson, AZ

Just letting everyone know that I made it back in one piece. Did the Nashville to Tucson drive and man was it a drive. Had a blast though, made it there a day before father's day and drove back before the 4th. The JK did great on MPG versus what I thought would get. The computer said 22.5 with 23.5 being the best average (going through NM). Funny thing, going thru the border patrol checkpoint the attending officer was commenting on my stock JK. A few others on the side, monitoring some type of equipment, said nice Jeep as well. Never had some many compliments on a stock Wrangler but those guys are driving Rubicons... .

Here is my old man taking the wheel at Mt. Lemmon.

Do you know about the old 'jeep trail' that takes you down the back side of Mt. Lemon? It ends up in the town of Oracle. A fun day trip, wheeling but no lockers or spoter needed.

08 2Door Red Rubicon. Rock Krawler 5.5 Longarm Coilover, Polly rear Coilovers. AEV hood & wheels, 37"KM2s, JE Reel 1350 shafts, 5.38 Yukon gears, Superior axles, Shrockworks stubby, Fab Fours rear, sPod, Rebel Offroad brakes, Warn winch and lots more.

Glad to hear you made there and back with no issues. I'm looking forward to going out west again with the Jeep. The last time it was more of a family visiting trip. Zero wheeling unless you count the fs road across the Sandia Mountain in Albuquerque.

What did you think of Arizona? We went there in '04 and I was amazed by the diversity of the landscape from one area to another.

........My other hobbies include: Older cars and trucks; Spending money on unfinished projects, and continuing to not finish them...

Diversity of terrain makes Arizona one of the best places to own and wheel a jeep!

Yeah, my dad used to drive that trail in his old CJ. We were planning on doing something like that but with monsoon season, did not want to end up in a wash. Sucks too b/c we had a few of his friends that were planning on a Jeep ride but backed out due to the rain.

I love Arizona just for that reason alone. Especially up in Mesa, did the Salt River float and was amazed at the terrain and heat (116 degrees that day). May look at moving out to AZ sometime in the next few years....
