Houston area/ south texas jeepers

Just moved down to houston month ago and have joined a jeep club but thought I'd throw it out on here as well. Looking for anybody that lives close or knows the area. Would love to go wheeling soon or find a fun jeep friendly wheel to camp site. I'm in northwest houston near jersey village. HMU!

Welcome to the area, Live at Jones and Grant. Only wheeling I have done is at the beach at San Luis pass. Some trails and big sand piles to play on. If you get a chance try it out.

Hey bro, welcome to HTown.

There are a few places "near by" around here. Couple places north of here. Texas Off Road Ranch (Huntville ish), two places 59 north, General Sams and Creekside. There is a little place off Bissonett and the Beltway SugarHill ORP. (12000 Bissonett). It's a old par 3 golf course made into a light off road (practice) park.

Your club should know some places and fees associated. All the above have Websites or Facebook pages...as always call/check before you head out.

Generally once football season is over and the weather clears up, I'll hit one of those spots once a month to get dirty. Also head up to Austin for some get togethers. Galveston, etc, etc.

Good to know there are folks in the area!

I just moved to Tomball week before last. Been too busy with work and moving and unpacking to get out and do anything. Cold rainy weather isn't much fun either. But, it looks like I'll finally get a chance to hang my new bumper on Saturday, then I will definitely be looking for stuff to do, and placed to go play around at.

What can you tell me about San Luis Pass? It sounds like it could be a cool spot. I googled it, but didn't get to far.

There's not much there, just some sand dunes. At least wait till summer when you can see some bathing suits while you wheel.

Actually better in the winter, The sand is not packed down and there is less traffic and less police presence. Mostly just fisherman. Great place to start learning how to drive in 4wd. Plenty of small dunes that are not off limits to get confidence on and not so far away as that if you get stuck there is not someone there to help you. Trails run pretty far back into the dunes to the different fishing areas some go thru some fairly nice little water crossings.

Easy to find Go to Galveston till you hit the ocean Cut a right. Drive till you think you went to far and make a left on the road that goes down under the toll bridge.

I will be working out of the to ball area. Have you joined a jeep club yet? We should meet up some time for some wheeling.

General Sam's is in Huntsville, too. I think it shares a border with TX Offroad Ranch. Here is a list I've been putting together, all in TX except Superlift ORV Park:



Creekside Edge - Splendora
Gen Sams - Huntsville
TX Offroad Ranch - Huntsville
Down South Offroad - Crosby
Shiloh Ridge - Alto
Hidden Falls - Austin
Brazos Valley Offroad Ranch - Bryan
Canyons Offroad Park - Fredericksburg
Gator Run - Longview
Barnwell Mtn - Gilmer - Need TX ORV sticker and no drinkin on trails
SuperLift ORV Park - Hot Springs, AR

Any one going to Hidden Falls this month? A couple of us are going to camp and wheel on the weekend of the 22nd. Would like to meet up with anyone who will be there.

The winter is a good time of year because of the crowds. The packed sand will be there after any good rain. The fluffy stuff gets fluffier the longer it goes without rain.

Be careful when wheeling in this area, or any beach in Texas for that matter. It can be very expensive if you are caught on a dune that is NOT a trail or road. In other words, if there is(was) grass under your tires you could find yourself in deep doo-doo with the man! $500 for the ticket, even more for the tow if you happen to get stuck! They won't let your buddy pull you out. All of the Galveston cops have relatives with tow trucks, and San Luis Pass is in the City Limits of Galveston.

Also, try the taller dune on the north side of the bridge (actually just under and beside) after it has dried out a bit. That stuff is like powder. Lots of area to show how good your rig is in the sand. I've seen a Raptor doing about 60 jumping and fartin' around. I've also seen Jeeps with mud tires buried pretty good.

There's a few active club around the Houston area.
Texas Jeep, South Coast Jeep and Skyline Jeep. Most members probably affiliate with all three some how.
You can find them on Facebook

Need Houston Advice

Hi all, don't mean to bust in on this thread but really need advice from the Houston area: I have a 2013 Rubicon 10A and want some mods done. Specifically lights and an S-pod install, maybe a hoop and winch. Can anyone recommend a shop or someone who I can pay to do this install. I am a female and not at all comfortable with this type of work. Thanks for any recommendations.

We can have a wrenching party. You just gotta provide the food and drink. Bunch of us guys can show up and help you out. Then maybe we can all go on a cruise afterwards. Just a thought. P.S. I'm married; not trying to hit on you or anything! ha

It does seem like a lot of work to do on one day. What is a hoop?
