Jeep Trip to Turkey Creek

Jarrett and I went out jeeping with Tom and Ray at Turkey Creek (Black Canyon Wash) in the Bradshaw Mountains between Phoenix and Prescott. I posted new pics of the trip in the gallery.

I posted a couple weeks ago about the new skid plate and oil and tranny pans. Well, thankfully, I didn't get to test the oil pan because the skid plate did its job. I did get to test the rock sliders, diff skids, oil pan skid, and the flex of the suspension.

Testing the articulation of the Rubicon Express lift:

Great trip. The weather was in the low 90's in Phoenix and the mid 80's at the trailhead when we got there at 9:00 AM. It was a dry winter and it is a drought to begin with, so there was no real water in the wash like there normally is, but the run was still great. A good way to spend a Saturday.

Some of those pics look like the wheels are even attached. Looks like fun.
