I'm looking to go tomorrow for the first time, what are the good spots? This will be my first time with the Jeep so I don't want anything crazy

Karma point. Haleiwa side past the air field. Keep going and you litterally drive into it. Its fun easy and I've taken everything in 2w. Though at times you'll need 4WD. There is a spot to the right as soon you as you enter that you can climb. Its just a few rocks and dirt but so much fun and you can test your jeep out. Suggestion. Sway bars disconnected and mud terrains are ideal for the climbs though im not sure. I feel comfy doing them with rear track bar off adj front, discos and running m/t 31s. Don't know the lift but seems to be a small one. Go in the am, bring some drinks, some supplies, I do I've helped lots of people and they've helped me. Im in a red yj front windsheild always down when I go offroad. See me just stop and say hey.

Kaena** Point, not Karma lol.

That's where I ended up going, awesome spot. 3 miles (I believe) from front to back, only one way in or out in a vehicle. Not too hard but there are mud pits, rocks, and small hill climbs if you want to venture.

I had a blast, the jeep was great and gave me no trouble. One thing though- I don't know too much about lifts to be honest. All of my high school shenanigans were on stock vehicles, and I've had cars since then until now. My jeep has a 2-3" lift and 35's, I believe it is ProComp but I don't really know. It was done by the previous owner and I couldn't get any info on it. I hate buying modded vehicles b/c you don't know jack about how the work was done, but at the time I wasn't planning on doing anything crazy with it (stupid me- I should have known the bug would bite again).

That being said, I'd love some help some time or just meet up with someone to give it a look-over and see what I have, or lend a hand wrenching if anyone needs help so I can learn. Any takers? haha

PS. I'll put up some pictures when I get home from work.

I just drove out to Kaena Point last Saturday. Had a lot of fun too. Didn't go too far back since the family was with me but will return.

We used to have a blast out at Kaena Point when I was stationed out there. I heard a rumor about it getting shut down but that was 3 years ago. Anyways, here's some crappy pics from a trip out there. Mine is the Blazer. My roomate was in the Disco

Hi all,

Noob here. Just got my Jeep (details in the "hello" forum). Anyway, I wanted to check the 4WD so I went to that spot near Sandy Beach where everyone drives past the sign that says "No vehicles on beach" and buried the back, put it in 4H, drove out, went to the deeper sand, pulled a U-turn in 4L and zero problems.

So now I want to do something moderate, but fun. I'm thinking about going out to Kaena Point Saturday morning around 9ish. However, advice seems to suggest NOT going wheeling anywhere alone, ever. Any chance anyone will be out there?

Kevin

Not sure if you already went but Kaena Point is pretty safe to go alone. It's really only a bumpy trail with a few inclines along the water edge. You choose if you want to drive those. Plus there is always other Jeeps out there willing to assist you if needed.

A couple of weeks ago I went with others up Peacok Flats on the other side of the mountains. We took some pretty intense trails and had a lot of fun. That location I would never go alone.

Yeah, I went on Friday! REALLY bumpy. Haha. My wife was NOT a happy Jeeper and my daughter thought we were going to "roll over and die." There was a small incline I went to the bottom of, got stuck (intentionally), put it in 4H and it pulled right out with no problem. The biggest reason I wanted to get out there soon was to make sure all the drive train stuff was good before my courtesy-of-Hawaii warranty expired. I need better tires before I get serious, though. The GY Wrangler's are getting toward the end of life. Naturally, I'm going to bump up the size (maybe as big as 31"). I want different rims, too, but time will tell. I re-up in October, so I'll have some mad money.

Maybe one day we can get together and you can teach me some Jeepisms. If you don't mind hanging out with an Army guy.

Sounds good too me. I'm an old Army guy myself. Started my career in the Marines and now jump out of airplanes so that explains my user name.

Sweet. I have a couple of busy weekends coming up, but things should slow down next month. I'll hit you up via PM. And I used to jump out of airplanes. No more static line for me thanks. Haha. I started working on getting my skydiving license, but after 4, I learned that my wife was scared senseless every time I went up, so I put it on the back burner.

I'll be in touch!
