Hi all, I'm new to the board but not so new to Jeeps in general.
Yes I am on a few other Local Jeep boards, so I will spare the fine details....
I mainly cruise the Long Beach Peninsula where I live, but do on occasion do get out of the area.
I am glad to see you made it of here. There are a lot more people in your area tan on the Eastern Washington Off Road forum. Don't forget us over there though. :green machine:
Thank you for the welcome!
I'm always looking for new PNW 4 wheeling clubs, especially local ones. Living on the beach has it's advantages, and it's drawbacks. Like no-one to wheel with.....
I intend on showing up for the Beach LB Peninsula Clean-up Saturday Morning providing my Jeep will run. It's on it's last legs. Engine is way tired......
I can only attend for a couple hour due to prior engagements in the afternoon, But i will definitely help out. I wheel here, so I help keep it clean too.
I was there last year for the Long beach clean up. I got to meet alot of great local wheelers from the area. I am surprised you are haveing trouble finding a club there.
I will admit, I really haven't tried to get one started. I have looked for existing clubs, but there none that wheel responsibly around here. What I have here is young, stupid kids just out of or still in High school that don't give a rip about responsibly wheeling.
I refuse to hang out with a group like that. It's tough enough to overcome the stereotype....
Once I get some ink for my printer, I am going to make up some fliers. My Neighbor up the road (awesome guy, also runs his own repair shop) has two Jeeps, a TJ and an XJ, so He may be willing to join in the fun. I also have a few other friends here that like to go out (toyota, Nissan, and a mazda) and wheel responsibly, so if I can get a hold of them, at least my foot is in the door, so to speak.
Kelly from PNWJeep?
I won't tell a soul....
The Little Red Wagon
I figured this needed an update... It's only been 5 years!!
The white two door got sold, got divorced.....
Now we have the Little Red wagon!
Last year I picked a super clean '96 XJ. Bone stock, owned by a little old man out of Montana. He traded it in to a local dealer here and I got it for a decent price.
This year I spend WAY more money than it's worth on parts and mods.
Bone stock as purchased:
She needed a little love:
Now, god only knows how much money and a year later:
3.5" RE lift, 31-10.5 Duratracs, Smittybilt XRC Rear Bumper and Carrier.
Bumper went on:
Not long after the bumper:
She got her first trail time since the build last week, and a really super hardcore shake down run.
Took her out with Pistons Wild motorsports to Ladee Flats and had a blast!
Got to watch Crystal Crowder own the rock pile.
She got some mud, but not nearly as much as I thought she would.
I didn't break her, and drove her home without an issue! Save for a dead headlight...
I was very impressed with how she flexed, even with the sway bars still connected. She flat out dominated the Hot tubs that I did run. I got hung up right at the end of the 800 trail on a small rock pile. Dave spotted me and taught me the "Moab Bump", then up and over she went! Everybody was telling me that I was doing a wheel stand, but I wouldn't know, all I saw was the sky!
For my very first moderate difficulty trail and a fresh, unfamiliar (offroad) build, I couldn't be happier. :friday:
Next on the list is Lockers, skids, front bumper, Sway bar discos and Rock sliders.
