New JK owner - Seattle!

Hello Washington,

Just moved to Seattle for law school (Seattle U!) from California and traded my car for my dream Jeep! I never knew she'd be on my mind 24/7!

What do the Washington Wrangler gurus suggest for some trails to drive though on a stock Wrangler for beginners? I want to do some off-roading, but I have to crawl before I walk! (Or would it be walk before I crawl in the Jeep world??)

Also, does anyone have any recommendations for a good Jeep auto body shop in Seattle?

And last...any Wrangler clubs in the Seattle area? I'd love to meet other Jeep enthusiasts!

There are a lot of trails out here. Frequent postings for Tahuya, which is a good place to start. Welcome to the family. Just remember the jeep wave.

I just took a road trip around the northwest and broke in the Wrangler and definitely got acquainted with the jeep wave! However, I've noticed that most Jeeps in Seattle don't wave back!

And Mac, Seattle is wonderful! I never knew I'd like Sea this much!

Welcome!

As far as trails...sometimes you just need to walk

This site is a good resource for local 4x4 trail information: Washington Trails

Hope to see you Jeepin' around some day (and you can be sure I will wave back )...enjoy the new ride!

Welcome! I go out to Tahuya all the time, and it is a great place to take a stock Jeep, especially if you are worried about flogging your daily driver.
