RVA Meet Up

Ladies and Gentlemen

Due to popular demand (and my inability to read other posts) - let's get this party started.

Let's use this thread to post meeting times, discuss get togethers, meetings, etc and planning events. Even if it's just all of us grabbing a cup of coffee on Saturday morning and getting to know each other and talking Jeeps, etc.

Let's make this a fun place to share experiences (or lack thereof) and organize as many meet ups and get togethers as possible. It looks like we have a lot of people from Richmond and the surrounding areas that are willing to participate.

I don't have my Jeep yet, and probably won't until late March or early April. I'd be happy to meet up with some of you guys for coffee or something one weekend coming up. We can just shoot the and maybe plan a trail run or something.

Let's also "check in" with your first post. Maybe a bit of background of your rig, how much trail experience, and anything else you deem necessary.

Hopefully this will be a great group guys! Can't wait to get started!

Nice man, we're neighbors! I'm right at Gaskins and Three Chopt. I'll follow your lead..

Name: Kevin
Location: West End
Ride: 2014 JKU Willys
Mods: Some on their way before the truck maybe...winch, fenders.
Trail Experience: None for the most part. Used to take my 91' YJ off-road a bit when I was 16-18 years old, but I had zero idea what I was doing. Trying to learn now.

Nice ride man! How do you like the bumpers? Have pics of them?

My first mod will probably be bumpers and a winch. Will I need to get new springs right away?

Thanks!

No Jeep yet...Still in D status, my guess is it should be ready by end of March, early April. I can't wait!

We will get together for sure once I pick this bad boy up...

Welcome, Bill. Land Rovers are fun toys for sure! Looks like we got lots of 2014 Jeeps...

Oh for sure.
I am not sure where to start but I think it looks naked w/o rock rails IMO.
I think I will hold off on a lift for a bit...basically wait until I need to replace the tires...then get the 33' with a slight lift.

I'm just gonna throw it out I think we should meet two weekends from now cause it will be too cold this weekend but the weekend after should be good so I think we should meet on Saturday or Sunday during the day so everyone can really see the jeeps and interact outside maybe at that same chipotle? Or if anyone had other ideas for a place that's fine

What about the same spot they had cars and coffee in innsbrook? It's a big parking lot and if it's during lunch time we can eat at firehouse subs right there?

That may work for me, but I won't have my Jeep yet! Inssbrook is right down the street from my house...Let's try and firm up a time? Better to meet up in the morning for coffee or afternoon for lunch?
