The Yuma4wheelers ran out to the Jackson Gulch here in Yuma, it's one of the harder trails that the club wheels. We were joined once again by CruiserJim and WarRated from Phoenix. The group included 3 toyota (pickup, 2 FJ40's), a Razor RZR (I rode in this one and was a blast made it though most obstacle without a hitch, we were on 3 wheels quite a bit though) and 5 Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Cherokee and WarRated's Toyota/Jeep hybrid.
We had no breakage on this run but one Jeep substained damage to a front fender and bent steering and suspension components. The Cherokee about lost the transmission (the cross member came loose casuing the transmission to hang) and about it rolled (see video).
Here are the two videos I have (same area, first rock garden/major obstacle on the trail, sorry for the quality I was to close in the videos).

Good times! Thanks for taking the pictures. From the topo maps that were kindly handed out before the run there has to be dozens of really tough trails out there that are not being run.

Ya, there's trails out there alright (the group knows of a few) but you got the BLM and military lands to look out for.

Can someone give me the GPS coordinate for the starting point and end of this trail?
Thanks
Mike
