I like the new Jeep. Where is the Austin Jeep Exclusive meeting at and is there a web site for them?

I googled it, and they also have a new site that is on shutterfly.. There calendar is there along with the forms for membership.. It's only $30 a year, and it looks like they do a lot as a group.. A friend of my son told us about it..

Jeeps Rule!

I was reading the thread and noticed several of you guys are in the Round Rock/Georgetown area. I think we should get together and talk about our love of Jeeps, and maybe have an "adult beverage." Keep my posted.

That sounds like a good idea. I would like to get a group together for Hidden falls as well.

Yes, we went, good group, a little on the formal side, but I don't mind a little structure. We have to go on an outing with them, and then attend another meeting before we can officially join.. No biggie. Again, good group, worth the time for sure..

I was at that Austin Jeep Exclusive meeting also. I like the good organization and the full calendar. My 2013 jkur wont be here until August. I can wait to take it out. For now, I am taking my lifted Chevy to hidden falls. Has lockers all around, so I do ok.

In the Market

Never had a Jeep. Any advice on how to buy first one? Best dealer or other outlet? What to lookout for on reliability issues? Am in Austin as well as Marble Falls.

I talked with Newt last year when he was at southpoint, good guy. I guess he moved on (unless southpoint is also called benny boyd)?

Hey JKO, glad to see you are over the shock of that first bit of trail damage. LOL I may be going in 2 weeks with GTT1, if he is able. I need to see what the weather is going to be. It was too hot last weekend. I'll keep ya up to date.

Saw the pics from the run this last weekend. Looks like y'all had a good time. Did you see my mark on the tree climbing out of Wet and Wild. I would be willing to bet RubiconLJMech and Madkins said something about it!

Maybe next time!

Actully it was brought up at camp before we went wheeling, then again at the tree itself, then I do believe it came up again later in the afternoon. RubiconljMechanic also said it is on the video that they put together. You may not have been there,but you were in spirit. Looking forward to meeting the Tree Killer! LOL
