Jeep in South Korea

Hi There,

My name is Chris. I live in Pyong Taek, South Korea. I am picking up my first Jeep tomorrow, 2001 4 banger with 75,000 miles on it.

I am surprised there are not more members from Korea here, as AAFFES sells a lot of Jeeps, especially up North in Yongsan.

Anyhow, I am a helicopter mechanic, and have lived in Korea for about 7 years. I have a couple nice bikes as well, so I am used to the driving over here. Now I just need to find a local 4X4 group to show me where the good trails are.

Chris

Welcome!

Welcome, Chris, to the best Jeep Wrangler forum in the world! My first was an '01 2.5L 4 cylinder 5 speed stick. Loved that vehicle but needed a tad more room so I sold it for an '04 Unlimited. Still miss the tremendously small steering radius! Just curious, R U military? Got a son in the service and was just wondering. Again, welcome and glad to have you along for the ride!

hmenker,

I am not in the Army no, but I was the first two times I was here. I am a contractor now, and work with the Army every day, as a Blackhawk Helicopter Tech.

Thanks!

Thanks for your past service to our nation! And thanks for continuing to serve in a different way as a mechanic. It's appreciated more than you know!

I have one bike here, an 06 Softail Deluxe. I had my Sporty over here, but shipped it back to the states a few years ago.

Thank you all for the warm welcome,

Chris
