Dude not this weekend but the next you and I are going to go to one of my favorite spots with a couple other guys in Toyotas. I can tell you are dying to get that thing dirty. I like how you warn us that you are 17 but not a punk ! Funny shit, I'm 32 and I'm still a punk lol.

Winter Wheeling

haha thanks man, Im glad you had fun. We went on Saturday and the ice was crazy thick. I was leading and had to be the ice breaker it was intense, the water was deep, the mud was thick and frozen. Charlie threw a rod in his 2000 4runner 3.4 (only 100,000 miles on it) it was insane. Im trying to post a video of Charlie and Scott (one of my jeeper buddies) in his built TJ, but I cant figure out how to link it from here. I have lots of video and pictures of our many CT wheeling trips on my Facebook page. My name is Joshua Ensling check it out.

ps. my tires suck on hill climbs, the snow required some evil kinevil speeds to clear some of the tougher grades.

Hey all, new jk sport owner here. I'm in the Glastonbury/east Hartford area mostly. When it comes to off roading I'm a complete noob, but can't wait to get her out on a trail.

Ok so if you have read all of this thread from the beginning you have noticed it has grown from some people meeting up for summer get-togethers to a club called ECOJOCS (East Coast Offroad Jeepers of Connecticut).
Some of you were there from the beginning and some are new to the thread.
This Sunday at noon, ECOJOCS is having its monthly meeting and membership is open. Come check us out and meet a great group of guys and gals and learn about us and hopefully if you like what you hear you will join our group.

Location is at UNION STREET TAVERN 20 Union St, Windsor, CT 06095. Sunday the 12th at noon.

Come check us out.

Howdy from Stamford!

Wish I could make it up to the meeting today, but I'm knee deep in prepping for the arrival of my new JKURX. Heading up to the dealer in Danbury tomorrow night to trade my '12 JK and check out the new rig which just arrived at the dealer on Friday! It's immediately going in for a 2.5" AEV lift and Duratrac 35s wrapped around the black Pintlers I'm transferring over from my JK so I hopefully will bring her home by the end of the week! Then the real fun starts when I get to work adding all the goodies (bumpers/winch/lighting/audio) that came off my JK plus a few other things the wife allowed me to buy for the new rig; a consolation present for me giving up the 2 dr. in anticipation of the arrival of our first child... thankfully I have until early June to "finish" it.

Hope to be able to join up with the club later this winter/spring or at the very least meet a few local Jeep addicts.

Happy Trails!

The only thing limiting me going off-road is my mother. She insists I cannot go alone (as in only one in my vehicle) and she won't want to bounce around. So that leaves father, who works weekends often.

How can I convince my mother I will be fine with the other people (in 4runners and FJ Cruisers) in a group?

I love it but like most fun things, there's no place closer than an hour from me so I don't go NEARLY as often as I want.

Being a holiday On Track Karting in Wallingford is opening at 10am, and I'm planning on making a trip down. Would be cool to race against some of you other CT Jeepers!
