Took the kids out for their first real trail ride yesterday. Trail goes up Moss Wash and to the long ago abandoned Gold King Mansion. Pretty impressive for a building such as this to be built in such a rugged area pre-depression. Had a variety of Jeep generations in the group along with other trucks, some of which made it through the trail.

Sunny, mid-60's, beautiful weather, the three kiddos loved it.

The whole group made it through with only one winch aid for a low clearance YJ.

Lots of Arizona pinstriping, pretty decent tough lines available for those interested. Stuck my u-bolts from the leaf spring plate on one boulder, need to shave those down.

Looks like a good time with the family. We need more trip reports on this forum!
It was great.

It motivated me to fix some long term issues on my jeep so now I think I feel better about doing more trips and hopefully more reports

Great Pix!

How nice was the 5.3 and the NV4500 for wheeling?
They handle it pretty well. I need to regear the differentials, at 2.73:1 it would crawl better with something in the 4+ range. The engine was a craigslist find from some guys yard so I worried a little about it, but it has been the most solid part of the jeep.

After replacing my throw out bearing and adjusting the clutch linkage it is all driving a lot better

A lot of nice trails out this way. Gotta get my Scrambler out on more of them.
