Do they still run Jeep Camp in Germany? If so, perhaps next year we should all meet up and camp together. I'll bring the beer!

they have Camp4Fun at Nurburgring, but it's closed for "renovation" and they don't know when they'll be done....

Royal Berks is about 2 hours drive, around London on the M25. Might be longer if you chose the wrong day or hit traffic on the M25.

Welcome, UKJeepboy and Bruce. Seems I must be living in a bit of a 'Jeep desert', as I've yet to spot another TJ in the North West.

hi

sastanack here, i've had a '98 Wrangler TJ for a few months and i finally took it to an off-roading day in Chelmsford on Sunday (I'm 'just outside london', in other words.. essex)

got stuck after ten minutes! a muddy cross-roads at the bottom of a little hill, hard as i tried i couldn't get out on my own - it took a lot of rocking backwards and forwards to get out of the tracks going the other way and i couldn't get enough momentum to get up the track infront of me (or reverse the way i came in). made it halfway up the track to the right when my new jeepey friends went to get me some help.

we played around in the mud some more until the other half flooded the engine.. but anyway

can anyone recommend some good off-roading tyres? the ones i'm on at the moment look pretty standard. looking to buy a whole set of wheels (or steelies?) because a friend has one of those tyre-changing-gun things and we can do a swap for muddy days and i can drive on normal ones during the week. sorry, i'm not very up on the lingo at the moment but we all have to learn some time!

time to hit the classifieds and see what's going locally..

Another UK Jeeper..awesome. IF you're gonna swap tires back and forth like that, I would recommend just having them on their own set of rims..much easier to take off one rim and tire, and put the other on. Tire wise, cant beat super swampers for off roading, but there are alot of good tires to choose from, so research is your best bet to find out what you need/want. Looks like we could have a good group to get together sometime and do some wheelin.

Hi Mate,

Firslty, welcome aboard.

Was that Essex Offroad.com? If so, I've been meaning to check that place out as I'm just up the road (A12) from there. I'm near Ipswich.

I have a few forest/farm trails on my doorstep for some light offroading but rarely need 4x4 for those.

Bazzer - Yep, essexoffroad is the place. As a noob I thought it was GREAT!

I practised my off-road 4H and 4L on some extreme potholes and a local byway (now my favourite shortcuts) but this was just the right place to see what the car could do and how well I could drive it (not very well as it turns out). I do have a more hard-core mechanic friend who said it was just a muddy field but seeing as he's a bit crazy I don't know what he's used to driving through for comparison..

As you drive in thereís a station on the left to pay and ramps on the right Ė if you arrive in a convoy of 5+ itís £20 rather than £25 and on the way out they pressure wash your wheels for you. We pulled up next to the burger van/parking area and hopped out to check the map, even the guy behind the counter was happy to give us directions. The further out you get the harder it gets, we did pass someone who had rolled their Land Rover but once he was set right he carried on driving.

I was the only Wrangler there but after the engine flooded my cherokee friends let us hop in the back while they drove about. The 4l engine and bigger tyres powered through the places we had difficulty reaching (mine is a 2.5).

Brutus, that's what I was trying to get at with changing the tyres. Checked eBay but not seeing much used jeep-able gear on there. Some of the forums are blocked while Iím at work but Iíll see what I can get to today. I also need to get some towing eyes stuck on front and back because I had to get pulled out by the axle first time around, and after the flooding incident we thought it might have to move it from where it was parked and couldn't get to anything at the rear to hook onto.

Iíve a picture up on the essex forums of my purple monster J itís been converted to run on LPG so it wasn't as painful burning through half a tank on sunday!

Ah i gotcha

Like I said, cant beat super swampers off road..I would reccomend those if you can afford them. The BFGoodrich KM2's are supposed to be pretty awesome tires as well and wont hurt your wallet as badly.

My bad, I tend to jibber on when Iím excited.

Any opinions on snorkels? The wheels/tyres (and wellies after the state my trainers were left in) are top of the list, but after we went swimming on Sunday we couldnít get it started to go driving again and lucky to make it home without calling AA.

Or just avoid the puddles?

There is a thread on here somewhere about snorkels. Personally, I like them and think they look awesome, but to each his own. I think if you're going to be doing alot of deep water crossings, then it would be worth it, but you can always save the money, and just go around.

I'm in essex, there's quite a lot of farmland and byways running in between. There's a few that I see horses coming in and out of quite a lot and I've avoided them but apparently all the routes are on Ordnance Survey maps.

There's a Northumberland council website with a map showing all public rights of way - can you send links in here or is it best in a message? I don't want to spam/break any forum rules. Just found one for Cambridgeshire as well (had a look at your for-sale post an saw where you're based, any pics of the seats?)

Off to google one for Essex now, it's my last day at work before I start a new job so not working all that hard! : D
