Not looking for anything special, just regular maintenance and alignment stuff right now. I just prefer to have someone who's familiar and versed in Wranglers because I feel like every time I've taken it to an "all-services" type of place, they just sweet talk me that everything is fine even when my alignment is wobbly.
This thread is a little old. I'm hoping to bring it back to life.
I am a military haole here for three years, but hopefully I'll come back and STAY here. I LOVE this island. Not just because of the beauty, but the people are so laid back and I have yet to find one who wasn't polite. I have yet to experience what many of my mainlander friends call "howlie treatment." Maybe I have and just haven't noticed. I dunno.
ANYWAY, I have owned my Jeep for a couple of months now and am getting ready to upgrade tires, rims and some other things. I went to Ka'ena Point Sunday and yesterday. I enjoy it, but haven't really challenged myself yet. I was about to and my wife said she would get out and walk if I did. LOL My point is, who can I wheel with? I am going to make sure I have recovery equipment and such before I start getting serious, but I have always heard not to go alone, but I don't know anyone. Any input?
Aloha. Been here for a bit now, got an 87 YJ here on schofield that I have lifted and added custom roll bars and more to come here real soon. I own a tig/mig welder so there isn't much I can't do out of my garage. Always looking for parts and new friends to go hit K point with. I'll post my jeep pics this weekend. It has come along way. We might go to Kpoint this Sunday if anyone is interested. Hit me up.
How are the trails out here? I'm in need of some new tires and just wondering if All Terrains apposed to mud tires will suffice for Ohau's trails. Also if anyone is down for a ride this weekend or something I'm kinda new to the area and would love to hit some trails.
You can get by with all terrains on the most popular off-road trail (Kaena Point), but even there you will have to pick your line carefully at some points. My advice is to get the mud terrains, even though they will wear out more quickly you will just like them more, especially when you look at your Jeep. Do you really want to spend money on all-terrains and then regret it every time you see them? That being said, the BF Goodrich all-terrains look like a good compromise and I would consider them if I wasn't so superficial.
