Thanks, looks like we should get into Tucson 3/14, Will spend a couple days there then, head up to Phoenix for a few days and work our way up to the grand canyon. Know the daughter wants to do Crown King.
If you're going to do Crown King on the weekend... 3/21 or 3/22, shoot me a PM. I'd be happy to run it with you if you want some backup.

That would be great, will let you know once I know for sure what days we will be there.

Have been wheeling in most of these places with a lifted TRD OR. Now looking for a JL. It’s been hard to find a 3.6 up in WA. Lots of 2.0 turbos, how do they do out wheeling in these places?

If you’re in Tucson, the backway up Mt Lemmon is beautiful and very accessible. It starts in Oracle just north of Phoenix. It has some side roads if you want to explore a little.

There is a nice ghost town loop East of Tombstone that’s kind of a loop around the Dragoon Mountains. Old mining sites, equipment, graveyard.

Send a FB message to SOAZ Off Road. THE most active group in Tucson. Lotta great rubs around here.
Thanks for the recommendation. Will be going to an event they have listed this Sunday, Tumacacori loop drive. Not sure what to expect but figured it would be fun going out with a group, looks like 12 going.

Planning on doing the back way up MT Lemon on Monday, then up to the Phoenix area for a few days.

Thanks for the offer. Unfortunately we will be leaving the Phoenix area that Friday. Looks like we will be getting into Phoenix Tuesday then leaving Friday morning.

Awesome! That’s a pretty cool and tame loop. Won’t have to worry about destroying anything. I won’t be able to make it as I have a sick kiddo. Have fun and best of luck on your trip!

That should be "Oracle, Just north of Tucson"

Here I am drinking coffee at 7:35 in the morning waiting for some pics of said trails. Trying to live vicariously through the OP. Help a brother out. AZ is on my list.

Why you holding out. You have to have more pics of that Punk'N Jeep out in the desert. It is 6:30 in the morning and the coffee is strong.

Thank you. Arizona is on my list. I have been to Arizona many times, but not to off road yet. This helps keep me motivated.
