Just wanted to tell all of you how kick ass you are.
I was out of the off-road crowd for a bit ( 5 years ). Before my hiatus I had an XJ and NAXJA was an amazing forum. In 2014 I bought a brand new Focus ST ( love and miss that car ) but the forums for that platform were riddled with @ss#0!e5. It is nice to be back home. The off-road community has always been so supportive. Sure there will always be random d!ck5 but this forum has been a pleasure. I check in every day and am always entertained and informed.
Thanks gals and guys.

That was taken out in the Martinez canyon area near Florence AZ.
Sad that BLM closed it. One of absolutely the most beautiful canyons (and decent wheeling) in the state, IMO. Pretty sure there's a back way in though....just haven't had time to scout it. Entirely possible that it is buggy only on that route.

Yes mot sure of an alternative route either. I don’t think there is but there are a lot of trailblazers out there.

No, I mean it's there....it's the same wash you used to come out of to start climbing the switchbacks on the way the Silver Belle Mine....if you stayed in the wash....it took you to another road on the backside of the Superstitions...on the Superior side. But...the canyon gets really tight and I'm not sure you could get through there in a buggy, let alone a full bodied rig.

I’m not sure where you guys are SeanK and Billy goat but I lived in Mesa for 20 years, and built several houses all around the foot of the Superstition Mountains. Your conversation made me reminisce a minute, lol.

I agree with op , this forum rocks.....:rock:.

Thought it looked like AZ. I spent 5 years in Tucson going to school and 5 years teaching in Ajo.

I tell people all the time that owning a Jeep is like getting 500 new friends. Joining this forum is the same way. I have been coming here for about a year and a half and think I have only seen a couple asshole post. This site is in my opinion one of the best Jeep sites on the web. I did vist a couple other forums at first, but none were as good as this one. Plus this site taought me how to buy a Jeep under invoice. I figure this site saved me about $7000 on my Jeep purchase. Then with the discount code for many vendors, it probably saved me another grand or two on mods.

I agree 100%. I have bought and sold (given away) to board members and find the group to be helpful, loads of integrity, and just plain good people. It has added so much to the job of Jeep ownership.

Yes, great batch of helpful and smart people in here. I’ve only encountered one idiot who was actually angry at any Unlimited owners and folks who didn’t modify and go off road. This clown said he hates people that “buy a Jeep for the badge and street credit” and you “shouldn’t have one if you don’t go off road”. Like it’s his business. Anyway he got ripped a new one by plenty of people.
Great forum though. I’ve said before there’s people here that know more about Jeeps than Jeep!
