Thought I would start posting in an Arizona Thread for anyone looking for great trails in Arizona and a thread to show off my XK. Went to the ghost town of Jerome last weekend (9/07) and wanted to share some pics, enjoy.

The trail was easy to find but was not marked, I will see if I still have my flyer that the group printed but you should have no problem finding it. We went in from the Jerome side, you can go in from the other end but I like having the cliff on the driver side.

Jerome isn't really a ghost town. It is an old mining town, which currently has a population of about 400 - 500 people.

That big building you see up on the hill is the Jerome Grand Hotel which actually started it's life as a hospital.

49er, what lift kit do you have, and how do you like it?
I have the Rocky Road 2.5 lift and for what I have around here it is more than enough. I wanted the AEV 4 inch lift but got tired of waiting for the ESP fix, The RR was alot cheaper and I was able to install it myself with a litttle help from my friends.

Looks like you have the factory standard tires on you jeep - original Goodyear Fortura. I have those too. i was just wondering how they stand up on those Arizona rocks. Those rocks look pretty sharp and jagged.You must have been ok along the trail. It looks like its a fun place to go!

My Commander is celebrating it's Birthday today. I purchased it one year ago today and am just as happy today as I was a year ago. The only service it has required was the brake recall and some warranty work on the third row seats. I now have 3,150 miles on it.

Nice pics 49er! Those trails look awesome! I absolutely love driving through Arizona! Usually, I do it a bit faster, though.
