About two years ago, a group from this forum organized a run through Box Canyon - Florence. It was a success, but was hard to organize. One of the members said it would be easier to handle on Facebook, so he started the "Four Corners off-road Adventures" Facebook Group. In hindsight, the lack of "Jeep" in the title has allowed folks to skip over the group when searching for fellow Jeepers. It currently has 162 members. A little later, AZ Newbie Jeepers was formed as a Facebook group. With "Newbie" and "Jeep" in the title, folks seemed to find it a little easier when searching. Newbies is currently at 940 members. This past spring two other groups sprang up - "State 48 Jeepers" and "Arizona Jeepers" - and grew very rapidly. State 48 Jeepers has just passed 1000 members and Arizona Jeepers have 849 members. Each of the groups has a slightly different personality, energy for organizing trail rides, and helpfulness towards fellow members.

There are a few other virtual groups on Facebook and the internet that cover Arizona, but these are the four that I've joined and continue to follow. The thing that makes all four stand out is the positive attitude displayed in the postings. There is NONE of the "negativity", "that's a stupid question", and "read the manual" crap that shows up in many Facebook groups.
I know I’m younger but I don’t care for Facebook or much social media I’ve been successful without it 😂 are there any ways to stay in the loop without these social media’s? Do these groups have forums or websites?

Not that I have first hand knowledge about. You might try these folks: https://offroadpassport.com/

I was weaned on forums in the kiting and big green egg fraternity years ago. But, then kiting folks moved to Facebook, so when I started looking for Jeep groups in the Phoenix area, Facebook was an easy transition. The four groups that I mentioned are "members only" groups, so stay within those confines and Facebook isn't so scary. Those four groups are positive and supportive of each other. No politics, religion, nor other offensive off topic stuff is tolerated.

You can always register with a made up name, try them out, and delete your account if it doesn't work out. PM "Cypher" on this forum for some IT type tricks to keep your identity off the internet.

Any suggestions for ceramic coating and PPF in the valley? Preferably west side but willing to travel for a deal.

I've gotta guy that does mobile detailing. He's been detailing vehicles for me for almost 10 years. He just gave me a quote of 950 for ceramic coating. Haven't priced any where else yet.

As a matter of fact, my son has his own automotive detail business. Normal drivers all the way to Rolls Royce, classic cars, and higher end C8 Corvettes and Teslas, you name it. He is certified in ceramic coating and does all the finishing and paint correction as well. Does it literally out of our house. Many references and photos of clients cars. WE did our Jeep once we took it home. Ceramic coating is awesome. Doesn't stop rock nicks but certainly swirls, minor scratches, and of course paint fade. Ours literally blows right off when we wash it. We have 4 cars in the family already ceramic coated.

As for PPF, don't have anyone for that yet. Been looking as well. For the detail work, call my son Zach, 630-743-9995. Tell him your on the forum and a fellow Jeeper. He can work out a deal for you. We are in Goodyear, west valley.

My son will do it for under $700 in most cases, but again a lot depends on the amount of paint correction needed and what you want. But you need to come to us for the deal. Has other services as well, and he can do the wheels for extra. Works with whatever your budget and wish list is. Call him (Zach) at 630-743-9995. Tell him you saw us on the forum.

Perfect. I’ve gathered a few references between here and my old forum for ceramic. Any PPF recommendations? My wheels and tires are throwing all sorts of nasty crap at my rear fenders. I’ve messaged people on OfferUp but they never respond.

As long as you go with a top notch ceramic, preferably 10H in hardness, those are hydrophobic and oleophobic, meaning they resist water and oil based contaminates. Bird crap included LOL. Again nothing can stop the rock dings except PPF. But mud flaps to contain the stones, but ceramic helps a ton on keeping the garbage from attacking the paint. And the shine is awesome and swirls are all but non-existent after... as long as you care for it properly.

Here is some of his most recent full paint correction and ceramic coating projects. Take a look O|||||O

as for the PPF, buy some off Amazon, preferably 3M clear, and try it yourself. For a small area you might be surprised you can do it. The craft is in the full car, with bends and curves, and hiding the seams. Those guys put out a work of art.

But for a small section, you could glide and stretch that and use a good hair dryer or a simple heat gun. Worth a Saturday try I'd say.

Howdy all from Apache Junction.

Purchased a new 2021 Snazzberry JL from Courtesy on 2/5/21.

I've come to the conclusion that JLWranglerForums will be a huge danger to my bank account balance. 😆
