Tampa area

I'm sure this post has already been made, but I'm just checking to see if there is anybody in the Tampa area? Would like to meet some local jeepers to go 4 wheeling with.

Seems most locals recommend Hardcore jeep club which is a Brandon club. I'm looking to try to meetup soon as my newborn future jeeper settles down

Hardcore has been disbanded because of one bad seed. If your interested in meeting some good folks to hang out with, Gulf coast jeeps is having a small meet and greet Friday 03/08/2013 7:00 Pm at the Steak 'n Shake on Hillsborough av at harney rd. come on out and show off your ride.

There is a good chance that a night ride might happen afterward.

Oh and that Tabber guy, he's not too bad of a dude to go riding with either.

Glad to hear there are plenty of local jeepers around. I took my jeep out completely stock about a week or so ago and must say it really surprised me. I can't wait to get a lift, tires and lockers. I will deff try to make it to that meet on Friday.

I went to Hardrock with a buddy who was in a stock sport. He was climbing up stuff big trucks were unable to climb. And this was with the stock street tires.

Don't be afraid of going wheeling with a stock jeep!

Just be careful following that Tabber guy down the narrow trails! JK

you're better off meeting up with some folks or linking up with a club. many people won't openly discuss the trails... try to keep them quite and keep them from getting closed down.
