If everyone is up for more of a challenge, Broken Arrow is the way to go.

Meet in north Phoenix/I-17 somewhere early? or up in Sedona?

2020 Jeep Wrangler JLU Sahara
{I live in Tucson, and I'm pasting here the introduction I just posted in the general new member forum. I'd enjoy meeting and running with others from Arizona.}

Hi,

I owned a red 2-door Wrangler 30 years ago. Loved that car but life intervened and I only kept it for a few years. Now, retired in Arizona for some years, I traded my Lexus in for a 2020 JLU Sahara three weeks ago. Basically, COVID isolation issues were getting to me, and I wanted to be able to explore areas of Arizona and New Mexico that I wasn't comfortable accessing in my Lexus.

Good Lord, the changes 30 years have brought, but it's still a Jeep and I love it. I've had it out several times already in some fairly rough areas including Redington Pass, Box Canyon (the one near Madera Canyon, not the one near Florence (which is on the list)), and the Patagonia Mountains. It's performed perfectly, of course. And the smoothness of the in-town driving is remarkable.

I'm so happy to be a Jeep-owner again, and really enjoying and learning a lot from this forum.

Cheers!

I'm in Sierra Vista. We (spousal unit and myself) try to do something every Saturday. We are new to the area, so every trip has been an exploration to say the least. It's been difficult to find people to wheel with and we don't have the Jeep fully outfitted yet so there have been times we just turned around for safety reasons. That said, Gardener Canyon north of Sonoita is a good area. We have been there a few times.

Montana Mtn would be much easier for Jeepsk8

She's a beauty! I have that same/similar pic of my rig right up there.. That's at the top before you start doubling back down to Devil's Staircase, right? What a special place. I imagine it's a touch better with pink traffic on a weekday? I like the stance - 3" and 37s?
