Houston keeps the surprises coming... in terms of weather and crazy drivers there are cool things and crappy things like every city. We live down south of Houston, and only really go into town for special things... so its nice when you don't constantly have to deal with downtown.

Enjoy H-town and hope you find some cool place to jeep around!

I live in the Houston/Heights. Inside the 610 Loop. About two miles from Down town central. nice older Neighborhood. It is a "Dry" area, so doesn't attract a lot of noisy drunks. ---But no matter where ya live here, it's still Houston. Hot, sticky, and flat, with no nice water to cool off in. --But there are Jobs, and that's the bottom line for me. I need to live where I can work, no matter where that is.

They have been pricing their jeeps pretty decently lately. Last time I was there the condition of the jeeps was okay, I think they have improved over the last year or so.

Texas? Come on down

Don't know if you are here yet, but I live in Texas City on the coast next door to Galveston. Good place to live, and getting better all the time. It used to stink from the chemical plants here, but they are seldom noticed. Every few years something blows up, but for the most part you wouldn't know unless someone told you there had been a problem, We have beaches, fishing,and one of the lowest tax rates in thea area due to the chemical plants taking up the slack and wheelin in some local mud bogs and sandpits. I am an ex-officer from here and they welcome reserve officers. No problems from hurricanes here due to the extensive dike system surrounding the city and the huge rainwater pumps-no flooding at all. Just a suggestion. Many new homes and subdivisions being constructed on the water at Moses Lake here. 25 minutes to Houston, 15 minutes to Galveston, 20 minutes to Clear Lake/Nasa area. Just a thought if you are coming this way.

Oh yeah

About Select-seems to be ripoff.
Ask prices from one guy there, get different price from another. Used parts they have are priced almost as new, but are beat up and worn out. They have some nice Jeeps on the lot, but check elsewhere. I beat their prices and the odometer readings last year by quite a lot by keeping an eye on Craigslist Houston (and watching out for the Nigerian scammers).

Hey I live 59 north of Houston in the kingwood area, we need to have more local runs and stuff! There's nothing better than having a platoon of jeeps haulin down the freeway headin out to go wheelin and having every passing vehicle starring in awe, wishing that was them! I mean come on motorcycle guys do it why can't jeep owners, would really like to set something up! I use to go to spring creek all the time but it's now been shut down and I've been waiting to find out where he plans on opening up a new offroad park!

I live in League City also and am currently looking for a used Jeep TJ. I've been visiting Select Jeeps a few times looking for the right Jeep. They don't seem to be that overpriced but I'm also looking elsewhere.

Pearland is a good safe place to live, Silverlake area is really nice and affordable houses range from 150's to 250's your about 15 minutes from downtown Houston (traffic adjustment 20 minutes)

I've been all over Houston, and I have to say that I see a greater concentration of Wranglers in the South/Southeast side. Mainly anywhere South of 45S and Beltway 8. Webster, La Porte, League City, Alvin, Friendswood.. and all the way to Texas City. I wonder why that is? Maybe because it is closer to the water? I see Wranglers everywhere but not quite like those areas. For example, I drive down Bay Area Blvd and Nasa Rd 1 and I'll pass up at least 5 Wranglers, driving in the opposite direction, in a 2 mile stretch just to go to work!

I am in the Richmond / Sugar Land area so if you see a shiny new jeep driving around that area that will probably be me! I just got it a week or so ago.



Anyplace close by for a newbie to wheeling and jeeps to go play in the dirt?

Another one in Cypress here. Love it! Great schools, great neighbors, but not enough places to wheel! Just bought my second Jeep today! Cant wait to get it, suppose to be here Monday or Tuesday. Thanks to this website, I saved a couple thousand dollars!

If you like mud, then try Down South Offroad and ATV Park. It's just off old Hwy 90 (Beaumont Hwy) outside of Crosby. I follows the San Jac river north of old 90 up for about two miles or so (just south of Lake Houston).

Just be prepared for lots of four wheelers, and unfortunately lots of dust right now.

This is probably not a big deal, but I actually had to use my windshield wipers today! And not because of bug splatter, dust or pollen, but because of rain!!!

I didn't use mine today, but they are Rain X'd. I'm glad it rained a little bit, wish we'd get more!



Just checked out Down South Offroad, I wish I'd known about that sooner! This is my last weekend down here, so I doubt I'll be able to make it. But I'll be back in October.
