Just found this thread, was wondering there was an Arizona thread. I haven't been out in a few weeks but this was Chevy Hill in Superior a few weeks ago. The rain really changed the trail. Lots of mud and some damage on my new sparkling 21 snazzle. Also quite a few pin stripes from Sycamore creek. A lot of overgrowth out there.

If anyone is looking for a good shop I've been going to BulletProof Off Road in Mesa. Solid shop, Honest, won't up sell you on something you don't need. They are getting all my work going forward.

Hope someone here gets out today after the rains yesterday. Have fun and post pics

Those stripes on the flare are gnarly! Those came from Sycamore? Which part? There's so much traffic through there I'm genuinely surprised you got gouged that bad!

Just checkin' in. Met @TrailSnail last week and I expect we'll be hooking up again in the future for some local trail runs.

I can't say my Snazzy is done but it's close. I wonder if it will ever be done... LOL

Howdy to all the Arizona folks out there.

I would be open to a trail run if not too difficult (still getting my newest AZ trail ready). Really have to be careful with the Diesel until I get a better belly skid to protect the fuel filter and oil pan.

Box Canyon just NE of Florence is an easy trail.

I think it would be a fun trip...once it cools down!

Its easy except for the waterfall. I ran it in my stock 2019 Rubicon. Not sure my diesel without skids would do as well though.

A lot of stuff came down during the monsoon through the waterfall area. The first ledge is buried in woody debris and a few new boulders. My thought is when we get to the base we stop.

I have never run up the waterfall, both times I have done it I went down amd ended in Florence. Up would be a new experience.

I went up the waterfall when I had a bone stock Jlu sport without issue. Granted that was early 2020.

I'd have to see the waterfall in person, but I don't imagine the debris would be there for long. Also, the far left line (facing up) has always been easy (up and down) for even midsize trucks with mild lifts and 33s... I'm sure a JL would have no issues.

Oh no i got those on Chevy Hill in Hackberry Creek down in Superior. I didn’t ease into the Offroad scene so took a trail or two to get comfortable where my corners are. On the other hand tho i got those first scratches out of the way 😉

You could just take the bypass around it.

Hackberry is my favorite trail in Arizona. I've run that 20+ times and never gets old.
