What a beautiful shot Sherif. You do nice work.

As for the video, I thought the early part using the wife mount was interesting, almost like a poor man's steadicam the way the horizon stayed pretty stable while the vehicle vibrated around.

4peaks is a great road/trail for a maiden voyage. It's fairly long 2-3hrs if you follow it all the way up and over to the lake side. Just beware of the 422/El Oso unless you want to go down it ;-)

My first Jeep was a Wrangler that I bought new in '95. I took that thing anywhere I could. Those things are meant for that. Now I'm just looking for some nice scenic off-road trails that aren't going to damage my much more expensive Grand Cherokee that's also the family SUV.

I feel the same way. I don't want to bust up the family truckster either, but there are plenty of trails out there to have fun on.

The main 188 road on 4peaks is wide enough for 2 vehicles to pass one another. As long as you say on the 188, it's scenic and plenty of places to pull over and have a picnic. There are some places (maybe the last 25% going up) where it's kind of rugged and clearance is good to have, but heck there was a Nissan Sentra (or similar) driving down when I was going up a few weekends back. I thought they were crazy, but it wasn't my car.

I agree with all the comments, nobody wants to damage their GC..but then again trust me when I tell you they can go almost anywhere..you just have to be carefull.

That definitely looks fun Victor, but I gotta tell you, you are a lot braver than I am. I can't see myself diving through water that deep. Nice pictures.

Re: Vids off road at Butcher Jones trails in AZ

FYI, if you guys ever fear the basics of AZ Pinstriping....there are temporary products you can apply to the sides of your jeeps to protect them while offroading anywhere brush may be tight. Absolute Offroad sells it, along with anywhere you can find it online. just a thin bit of clear or colored vinyl type of wrap that lays down and comes off easy.

Too late for that :-)

you can also use some of that spray on wax on the sides and most of the brush will slide off. Even a thin layer of dust will help brush slide off.

In this photos, this might look bad, but it's all dust - you can see where I ran my finger through it. Anything heavy that does leave marks you can get it buffed out if it's bad enough.
