One of the main reasons........... besides the highway by-passing
them................. is there are plans for a large truck stop right
at the Hwy 60/79 junction. Too bad Vern didn't plan ahead and do the
truck stop himself......... he knew about this by-pass 3 years ago.

He says "THANKS" to all of the 4x4 community!! We're the ones that have
kept him alive this past year. He stated he was "sorry to bale out on
all of us, but didn't have a choice". He does however, also own the
Texaco in Gold Canyon so we can still support him by fueling up or
stocking up on food at this station from now on.

From what I have heard, no. The highway reroute pretty much ruined
their business as it now diverts everything right past the station.

Ack, sorry to hear that. That place is almost a landmark. Wonder if
they will be putting in a QuickStop or something else there?

Subject: Limited Slip Diffs


Can someone who knows diffs help me out?
I am supposed to have limited slip in front and back (original owner
ordered them from the factory that way). I changed the oil in both
differentials this week (for the first time ), and expected to
see some kind of clutch packs in the differentials. But none were
there. Should there be some kind of packs, Am I supposed to be able
to see them, or are they hidden behind something?

Thanks

Hi all!
I have a 1980 Wagoneer, and I am rim and tire shopping. I have a 6 bolt pattern on the rims. All or most of the rims I see you all have for sale have a 5 on 5.5" pattern. Does anybody have any steel rims available for my Jeep? I would prefer 10" deep so if at a later date, if I want to go to 35" tires I can. For now only 33's since I'm just doing a 4" suspension lift.

Thanks for all of your valuable information!

Hello group,

Is there any reason that the head of through bolts must be towards the front and the nut to the rear? I finally got the motor mount off the drivers side of a 2001TJ w/AC. Getting it back on is going to be a bigger challange. The A/C compressor prevents the through bolt from being insterted from the front. I have removed the motor mount assembly from the engine block as one piece.

Best regards,

Mike

Not really. Possibly the bolt could stick out far enough to hit the

Hello All,John Halverson is leading a Crown King from Lake Pleasant trail run on Sunday, December 28, 2003.<br><br>When: 8am meet, 8:15 rollout
Where: end of the pavement, start of the dirt at Lake Pleasant road.
Rating: 3.0-
Length:
CB Channel: 4



The Lake Pleasang to Crown King trail is a local favorite. On any given weekend, there will be numerous groups of four wheelers, ATV's and motorcycles heading to and from Crown King. It is a fun and scenic trail into the cooler pines of the Bradshaws. <a href="../Main/History.asp">This trail was the first trip ever done by AzVJC.</a>

The trail takes off from the Castle Hotsprings Rd and travels through the foot hills and up the side of the mountain, giving nice views of Lake Pleasant and the Valley. There are some tougher optional sections that can make it interesting.

The trail goes through the old ghost towns of Fort Misery and Oro Belle, both of which are remnants of the Mining era of the Bradshaw Mountains. All that remains now, are foundations and a few crumbling walls. Fort Misery makes a nice place to stop and eat lunch as the small creek usually has running water and there are trees to provide shade.

In the winter months, the trail from Fort Misery through Oro Belle to Crown King will often have snow and/or ice. In the summer, an early start is necessary to stay ahead of the rising temperatures.

Once on top of the mountain, the trail runs through the cool pines and into Crown King. In Crown King there are places to eat and have a drink, and a general store that sells some excellent fudge. The old Crown King Saloon was actually built in Oro Belle, and later hauled up (many years ago) to Crown King and rebuilt. In Oro Belle, the saloon was built into the side of the hill, so the upstairs were mainly accessable from the rear of the building (at ground level). The upstairs served as a place repose for women of ill fame.

There are campgrounds on top of the mountain near Crown King for those wishing to stay overnight. The fastest way down is via the main road which leads through Cleator and toward Bumble Bee. You can split off and go through Cordes Junction, which will get you to the Freeway quicker, or keep going strait and go through the little town of Bumble Bee.

Alternatively, you can take the Senator Highway toward Prescott or Mayer, this can be a very interesting trail during snow season. If you have the time, follow Towers Mountain rd through Crown King and up to the top of Towers Mountain, there are some excellent views and you can join back up with the Senator Highway afterward.

Have fun, remember to bring water and your camera.

Enjoy, and remember to TREAD Lightly!
