My Family and I just cam back from the mormon pass trail and the area of the washout. I spent two days there having fun got my jeep up onto two wheels and we had a blast as well. I am always looking for a partner to off road with. better in pairs than alone.

I realize this last post was from May, but are you still looking for people to go with? I've never gone off-roading but would be into it, especially with another. Think my Latitude (non TH) could work?

it should be fine you might need a different line but with a spotter you shouldn't have any issues

Oh Vegas how I miss you. I lived there for about six years before I moved up to Elko. I loved how you could leave town in the middle of winter and go explore the hills without needing tons of cold weather gear or snow shoes lol. Luckily I'm headed down to visit some family after Christmas, maybe I'll spot a few of you around, however unlikely.

A question - what kind of fuel mileage have you folks in Vegas been seeing? The city is relatively flat and at a lower altitude, so I'm wondering how much of a difference I could expect from up here.

I off-roaded from Scotty's Castle to Gold Point, NV via Oriental Wash and had a blast. Lots of abandoned gold mines along the way and stayed in the Gold Point Ghost town for a few days. From Beatty to Chloride was the most challangng. Looking forward to going back next Spring.

Hwy miles are great. My average is 23/24. I'm very happy with the power to fuel ratio on my TH!

Just got back from a 3 day camping trip out at lake mead. Great weather and had a blast off roading looking for some good fishing spots. Last morning ran in to a two wheel drive ranger stuck frame deep in some muck. They were there since 9 pm the previous night trying to get it out. I guess a few people came by but wouldn't help...was very tough spot. We pulled them out no problem.... Went to go fish and saw them try to leave and get stuck again. lol So ended up towing them up and over the side of the hill that was rock instead . This TH is a beast! Had no trouble what so ever! Felt pretty good all day but still didn't catch any thing.
