For Las Vegas Jeep Wrangler owners, joining a Jeep club doesn’t have to be for die-hard off-roaders. The Desert Wrangler’s Jeep Club is a family oriented off-road group that mainly focuses more on trials that can be driven by any Wrangler, although on some occasions, four-wheel drive may be required. Most trail rides are actually in nearby national parks, monuments, and recreation areas.
The only official club rules are to stay on the trail, stay with the group, and be safe. Plus, you have to drive a Wrangler. There is no requirement to attend meetings or events, or to volunteer for anything. Due to a great sponsor, there are no required membership fees associated with the club. Plus, Food/dinner and sodas are provided at the meetings. Meetings are typically the second Thursday of every month, with a featured trip usually the second Saturday or Sunday.
Some upcoming events include:
Sunday, April 28, 2013 – Hike Kohta Circus (Gold Butte)

The group will be meeting at the Petro Station at 6595 North Hollywood Boulevard, North Las Vegas, NV at 8:00 am and heading to the Gold Butte area near Whitney Pockets. The hike is an easy to moderate four mile round trip over dirt and bedrock. The total estimated time, including driving and hiking is six hours.
Saturday, May 11, 2013 – Day Trip Over Wheeler Pass Trail to the Pahrump Winery
Once up the east side of the pass, you’ll stop at the pass for some more than spectacular views of the surrounding mountain ranges and valleys below. Continuing on down the others side you’ll stop at the old remains of the Charcoal Ovens, and stop for lunch. Remember, these trails are used by all, so you’ll most likely run into other vehicles like trail bikes and ATV’s. Once you make it to Pahrump, you’ll head for the Winery, where you’ll have the opportunity to go on a guided tour or adults can just enjoy the wine tasting room. The group will be meeting at McDonalds at 8480 Farm Rd, Las Vegas, NV at 7:30 am.

Chrysler is turning to an old name for a brand new Jeep. Taking the place of the Jeep Liberty, the replacement model that will be added to the line-up for 2014 will be rechristened the Jeep Cherokee, reviving a nameplate that helped kick off one of the most dramatic transformations in modern automotive history. To inquire about the Jeep Cherokee, visit a Jeep dealer in Henderson.
The Jeep label was a major factor in the explosive growth of the sport-utility segment during the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s. The launch of the original Cherokee in 1974 created a surge in demand as U.S. buyers looked for more enticing alternatives to their traditional sedans and wagons. The early version of the Cherokee, which remained in production through 2001, helped introduce the concept of four-wheel-drive to a more mainstream audience. Today’s newest all-wheel-drive systems are becoming increasingly common on conventional sedans and even sports cars, as well as SUVs.
The new 2014 Jeep Cherokee is being seen as a critical part of the brand’s global growth plans, and the reborn Cherokee will likely play a critical part of that. According to Chrysler, the new model will focus less on the traditional, go-anywhere capabilities associated with Jeep products, putting more emphasis on the on-road ride and comfort that today’s buyers prefer.
For 2014, Cherokee continues in two- and four-door styling. The two-door comes in a Sport price level, and the four-door comes in Sport and Limited price levels. Both body styles are 167 inches long, 14 inches shorter than the Grand Cherokee. The styling suggests the automaker wanted a more modern and distinctive look, with design cues clearly borrowing from the Jeep brand’s flagship sport-utility model.
The exterior features a folded take on the brand’s familiar, 7-slot grille, as well as distinctive split headlight and fog lamps. Under the hood, the 2.5-liter four-cylinder that had been the base engine is gone. A 4.0-liter inline-six-cylinder with 190 horsepower is now the only choice. Cherokee comes with two-wheel drive, part-time four-wheel drive or full-time 4WD that can be used on smooth, dry pavement.

Family Plan which is designed to make the Jeep Jamboree USA experience more affordable for families of four or more, pricing per vehicle instead of per person.
As far as the adventure itself, the trip contains several trails of varying difficulty. The group is divided into caravans of around 50 Jeeps or less. Jamboree officials grade off-road trails by degree of difficulty on an ascending scale from one to 10. Most trails fall in the four to eight ranges. Progress along the route usually remains steady until the group comes upon an obstacle where Jeepers will take on the challenge one by one, then stop again to wait for the rest of the group.

For years, the Chrysler Sebring has turned heads as one of the few affordable convertible sedans available on the market. When the Sebring was discontinued in 2010, Chrysler introduced the Chrysler 200 to take its place. As the sedan continues to mature into its third model year, the 2013 Chrysler 200 experiences further refinements without losing touch with its base offering.
Car and Driver reports that the most significant improvement from last year’s model is that the 2013 Chrysler 200 rides and handles better than ever. Coming mostly as a result of Chrysler’s alignment with Fiat – the Chrysler brand will be discontinued in Europe and will be sold using the Lancia badge – the 200′s suspension, steering, and transmission have been re-tuned in the spirit of Italy’s legendary pedigree of well-built, responsive autos. Stiffer struts and springs and rebuilt steering give way to a driving experience which is tighter and more direct than in the 2012 iteration, which remains available at your Chrysler Las Vegas dealer.
Of course, there is more to the 200 than improved suspension. The 200 comes in several trim levels, from the base 200 LX with its 30 miles-per-gallon highway efficiency all the way up to the 200S Convertible with a choice of soft- or hard-top convertible options and a stout 3.6-liter V6 engine with variable valve timing. The 200S achieves 283 horsepower with 260 lb-ft of torque, but still maintains an impressive 29 miles-per-gallon highway efficiency estimate.
The interior of the 2013 Chrysler 200 retains its unmatched spacious design and includes standard heated leather-trimmed front seats, a 40GB touchscreen radio with Uconnect, and a free one-year subscription to Sirius XM radio. In terms of comfort, virtually no other convertible can match the comfort and space afforded to four adult passengers in the Chrysler 200.
The associates at Chapman Chrysler understand that today’s auto buyer demands more from their vehicle – the updated 2013 Chrysler 200 is carefully designed to exceed those expectations.
