    My first time off-road. Sheep Crossing.

    Hey all. Got my first Jeep back in July. '07 JK Unlimited X.

    Took it out once so far with a friend. Sheep Crossing. Had an absolute blast. Looking forward to doing this more.

    Hope it's cool if I just link to the Google Photos page.

    EDIT: ok, uploading them here, just in case. But leaving the link to Google Photos because there's a video there

    It was great. Very easy run, so good for my first time. You need some clearance, but it can be done in 2WD.

    And while this isn't my video (unfortunately... looks like they had a blast), this is a pretty good representation of what you can do there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjB7E-3B6QU

    *sigh* yeah, so many things. First thing I need is a swing arm carrier for the spare. The Jeep came with 35" tires but just a stock spare mounted. I've got the 5th 35" tire, but have been told the tailgate won't hold the weight.

    ... and that's just the start

    Wicked cool shot.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience more often than not comes from bad judgement.

    Sweet. It looks great. I was just thinking though if you took that shot without any processing I was on my way to the store to buy that camera. . Nice work. It looks great with excellent texture.

    thanks for posting. I am an AZ native, but I had never heard of this spot before. My wife and I drove out to sheep crossing bridge this weekend. great drive. Only wish there was a way to cross the Verde river to make a loop instead of having to head back the way we came.
