Hi everyone, I'm new to this board as of today! Currently getting ready to build a 1981 Jeep CJ-7, a winter project. It's going to be a "Clean Driver" set up for both street and mild to moderate wheeling. My question for you guys/gals living near the Rubicon is this.. I'm flying into Reno next week, actually making my way to Sacramento for a family Reunion, but I thought I'd check out the Rubicon on my way. Does anyone know where I can rent a Jeep or ATV without having to be on a guided tour. Lake Tahoe Adventures has the ATV gig with a guided six hour tour, but I'd rather be on my own so I can use it like it was my own, and take in some challenges, stop talk to fellow Jeepers, etc. Someone on the Shortwheelbase board said there might be a place in Georgetown that rents Rubicon Jeeps.. any help is appreciated! Thanks Rick

Doing Rubicon in a "RENTED" Jeep is a SCARY thought.

If they offer that $100 insurance, GET IT LOL

Most are equipped with winches, all are low-geared and have lockers front and rear. The instruction includes all aspects of the sport.

Seach any and all car rental places from Reno to Sac, find one that has a Wrangler or Cherokee. Rent it, with as much insurance as they'll allow, and run the sucker on the Con. Then tell us all about it. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

P.S. If you break something all you have to do is get it back on the highway.(There's always lots of folks on the trail willing to help out.) When the tow truck arrives give 'em the ol', "Gee I don't know, <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> I was just driven along the road and... <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">" If there's any body damage make up a great story about a gangland war cross fire car jacking incident. <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> They'll eat it up.

P.S.S. I had a friend <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> who rented a car, got all the insurance, and may have accidently rubbed off the mirror. (I don't know, I wasn't there, he may have been lying.) Anyway, I hear that when he returned the car he had to fill out a little form then he was on his way. <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0"> But again, I'm not sure if that's how it happened, I wasn't there, you have no evidence, you can't prove a thing. <IMG SRC="smilies/roxy.gif" border="0">
