Not really no. It's all Private property and posted, or it's a couple of dirt roads down in the River Hills. Rausch Creek and AOAA are your legal local options. I know they aren't that local or that cheap but it's a good place to go.

You're the first in line at the traffic light, but you have to lean your head down to see the light. Small windshields

When A tune up has to be ordered online from Rock Auto because the local NAPA doesn't stock the parts, unless you wait a day

Note : Rich Squares NAPA now carries common parts for my Jeep

When running errans becomes a cardio workout from jumping into your jeep so often.

When you try and bait your heavy friends to just try out the driver seat so they can see how it feels to sit in a jeep, only to laugh your A$$ off when they fall on the ground.

Oh man, that made me bust out laughing. I could hear the panic in your voice. I've been in the same place before with different parts.

In two and a half years of ownership, I have not ripped a belt loop off yet. Of course I wear jeans with a wide belt that just barely goes through the loops, so that may have an impact. If you wear a narrow belt the loop may stick out more.

Belt loops are located in different places based on the waste size of the pants. Also, different makers put the belt loops in different places. I have a lot of Levi's, but I am fat, so I also own some cheaper stuff I got at the "fat boy store." The fat boy store off-brand jeans have the loops in a location that fairly guarantees that the TJ will rip that same loop off at the bottom. Every time. Every pair.

The Levi's in my size have loops that are offset by three or so inches from where the "fat boy store" ones (Harbor Bay, if anyone GAS) and I have never had one of them torn off.

However, my best bud has had most of his Levi's loops pulled off because in his size the loop is in that same location as on my Harbor Bay pants.

I am a professional symphony orchestra musician, and sometimes when I show up for work in my tuxedo (jacket hanging in the back) I will get in and my freaking cummerbund elastic band will get caught and I will be sort of trapped until I can twist around to unhook it. Instead of busting off like a belt loop it will stretch like six or eight inches, effectively trapping me in the doorway of the TJ.

Oh, well...

That may provide the answer. My jeans are Wranglers in size 44.

I think that the belt loop thing is worse for taller people. With the seat farther back there is more of a chance to get it ripped off as you slide in. I have lost a lot of belt loops. One day I will learn. Just a theory.

My head hits the roll bar, so my seat is all the way back and I catch my pants on the striker almost every time. I should make a photo gallery of all my pants and their broken belt loops.
