Good luck!!! Thats all I can say... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Nah, really though I rented the Jeep from a rental agency near Stardust called Brooks Car Rental.
I HIGHLY suggest you read the thread I wrote on my fun little Jaunt to the Grand Canyon. Jlove86CJ linked to it above and here is one too:Here
Here's 3 things I learned from renting the Wrangler from Brooks.
1. Check the air in the spare - make sure all parts needed to change tire are there before leaving the lot.
2. If the Jeep looks like a complete and udder piece of [email protected]
#$, don't rent it. I can guarantee it will run that way.
3. Temperaturewise, the Jeep runs completely fine - its the maintenence of the vehicle that fails you.
If you do venture out of the Vegas general area, make sure your cell phone is completely charged.
If you can, head to the Grand Canyon. Except, go to the West Rim which is definetly driveable for a day trip. It is located on the Havasupai Indian reservation. From the research I did (since I never was able to get there) it is a lot less congested and there are less regulations because it is on the reservation. Meaning, no railings etc.. just pure unaldulterated views.
You can supposedly leave at 7am-ish, see the Grand Canyon, and return by 5:30 PM to catch a show.
Check out this link: Audio Tour
for information about taking an audio tour of the ride to the West Rim of the GC.
The Grand Canyon is a once-in-a-lifetime natural wonder if you aren't fortunate enough to live out there. I'd check that out and on the way see tons of cool sights including the Joshua Tree forest and the Hoover Dam.
Just make sure that the Jeep you are renting isn't a POS.
Good luck, and let us know if you make it!!! I sure wish I did...
P.S. DON'T RENT FROM BROOKS CAR RENTAL!!! THEY ARE CHEAP BACKSTABBING UNSAFE %$&^%... I CANNOT STRESS HOW POOR OF A BUSINESS THEY RUN.
