I have been wheeling the seven springs area for a couple decades. You live in the perfect town for being on the dirt in minutes.

Been a long time, but I lived and Jeeped in southern AZ about 40 years ago, from 1969 to 1979. Lots of running washes around Tucson, and out into the Santa Ritas and Rincons. Had a 1949 Willys wagon, then a 1969 Commando. Worked in Ajo for five years. Overland past Gran Chaco, down to Quijotoa, west into the Cabeza Prieta, east on Pipeline through Burro Gap, then into the hills north of the res. Looked at ghost towns, climbed Coffeepot on foot. Wild West days, totally unstructured.

Beautiful areas... and totally under appreciated.

Not sure if this belongs here, but I saw a late model JK (bumpers looked like the JL) with a swing arm on the factory bumper. I didn’t get a chance to yell at the driver to find out what it was. It looked real clean though. Anyone know what it could have been? The ARB comes close, but I don’t remember there being any tow hooks.

How are the 2.0 turbos doing out wheeling? Been looking at the JLU looking for the 3.6 but up here in WA only can find the 2.0!

Tucson here. Used to live in northern arizona near sedona and did quite a bit of offroading. Was away from jeeps for 7 years but am back now with a 2019 2.0 rubicon. I dont even remember how to go offroad.
How do you like the 2.0 out wheeling? Any pros or cons?

I lived in AZ (mostly the Glendale and Avondale areas) for 20 years. Moved to the SC coast a year and a half ago. I plan on moving back to AZ this year. SC is nice but I REALLY miss AZ. There is nowhere to wheel at all here. I can't wait to get back to AZ!

That's my biggest issue with moving anywhere... how many trails are available?!

My wife and I are planning retirement locations, and she laughs when I'm looking up Jeep trails nearby. No trails = not acceptable

We are spoiled here in the southwest. So much wide open space and beautiful trails to drive.
