    During the summer triple digits are the norm. 100-110 is about the normal daily average. 110-118 isn't totally uncommon. The current record I believe is 122. So if you get 100-120 norm in Vegas you shouldn't be to far off if any from Phoenix. As for K5'ers in PHX and the rest of the state, there are quite a few. I will name as many as possible, and I am sorry if I leave anyone out.

    AZBlazer (aka Rocky Mountain Redneck) and myself have run away to Colorado. I will be back sometime though, but not sure when.

    There are more I know of in AZ that I can't remember the call sign for right now. Sorry if I left you off the list, but this gives you a rough start as to who is there.

    hey, jimmyjack, not to hijack the post, and i know it's a longshot, but do you happen to know a guy in tucson named jerry reding?? he moved to phoenix just a couple months ago, and lived in tucson for about 20 years. he lived out on arroyo chico road...i couldn't tell you where exactly that is because i've only been there twice, but tucson is a very awesome town from what i remember, the planetarium is really cool there.

    It's a great place to live and one of my friends kids went to UTI. He really enjoyed it and after graduation moved up to washington where his mom lives and got a great job.

    That is not a bad area. It isn't far from the freeway, and is only about 8 miles from school. Potato76 lives not to far from there. He is off Cactus and 25th Ave. He is one I didn't mention as he doesn't have a K5 yet, but he is looking into one here real. He is one of my best friends from high school.

    You decided if you are going to take the Burb down to AZ yet?

    not sure how long it stays hot in vegas for, but generaly phoenix sees triple digits starting the end of march/begining of april, and lasting until the end of august. Monsoon season doesn't really make it any cooler, it just makes it more humid then the east coast, while maintaining triple digit temperatures. ( in other parts of the world it'd be rain... in phoenix, water falls, but doesn't quite make it to the ground before evaporating/turning into steam, except durring the most violent of storms)

    you're going to need a reliable 4x4 out here in phoenix... remember, this is arizona, which is still part of the wild wild west, where we still ride horses, and most roads are just a dirt trace through the cactus fields.

    besides, how'd they stop you from taking such a gainormous beast?

    On a serious note, the high country is only 1.5 hr's away and there is good camping and all the good stuff. A 4x4 is the only way to go to get there though, at least in style and have fun exploring.

    Scott,

    If you lived in Vegas, Phoenix won't be to bad, about the same but Vegas seem to get more of a breeze. It does get hot her, but nothing a good pool in the backyard and AC can't fix when it's super hot.

    Our wheeling season is comming to an end. We generaly stay the $uck out of the sun and out of the desert when it's in the triple digits. Just too dam hard on both machines and humans. Maybe some night runs, but mostly we spend our summers bottie fabing on our rigs.

    We get 8 months of killer nice weather, so when the heat hits we stay out of it. Unless of course we just have to get a trail ride in... And it will happen.

    Tranny coolers, oil coolers, power steering cooler and electric fans are a must if you are going to wheel in the summer here, along with an extremely good cooling system on the blazer. Last year I roasted a trannie due to the heat. The doubler really helped the trannie temp, as it does not work as hard now.

    All I can tell you, is welcome, congradulations, you have moved to the land of the outdoors..... This place is awesome as far as wheeling is concerned, but body damage is part of the act....

    Drop me a PM and will will get together when things work out.

    I am in the same situation. It is my truck, but it is technically still my dads on the Title. He doesn't even consider it his anymore though. He gave it to me and now I do with it what I want. Next time he see's it from what it was when I left Phoenix for Colorado and it comes back he might not recognize it. I just picked up a set of 35's for it, I am going to lift it some more, trim the fenders, and losts more. It will be a totally different truck when he sees it again. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I told him the other day I was gettin the 35's and he was like, what the hell do you need those for.
