Her and your dad could ride with me, the 4runner rides 1000 times smoother than the jeep she wouldn't get bounced around too much. I took my mom and in laws wheeling before they had a blast !

I finally picked up my Jeep yesterday, so I'm ready for the next meet up.

Here are a few pics:

You ever figure out what happened to your turn signals in the running mode?

Not really. I initially thought it might be the MF switch or the relay but when I replaced the bulb in the offending marker (burned/shorted out), that particular issue resolved.

I know I need to replace the sockets in all front markers, as they are corroded. I'm guessing that the corrosion + the burned/shorted bulb both contributed to the condition. I'm not looking forward to what the stealerships have for price points on replacement sockets for the four front marker lights. I suppose I should suck it up sooner than later but I will wait for a warm-spell: buy them/do them or they will wind up lost and forgotten in the garage!

YMMV, and invariable will...

My turn signal lights keep blowing on my flares. I'm waiting to see what's causing it once the back glass is replaced. Maybe I'll have some insight

I've been to Middletown and East Haddam
Middletown is pretty light, more dirt than rock.
East Haddam has "options" for pretty much any hill climb/decent whether you want rocks or mostly dirt. It's a lot more technical.

Any wheeling in Connecticut is illegal
However...
The guys I've been with told me they have passed DEP and other police and just got a nice wave. General rules for anywhere:
Don't litter
Don't tear stuff up
Don't be loud
Don't go out at night
Be street legal

And nobody really cares.

I would love to wheel in CT, but don't know anywhere to. I'm from the New Haven county, so if anyone wheels, let me know. I also have buddy who wants to wheel

You can legally "wheel" in CT as long as you are on established roads or private property which you have permission to be on. ie. You can wheel places like green rd. In Ellington or Porter rd. Also in Ellington. You can also "wheel" state Forrest access roads which are marked and if the gates are open. But yes wheeling in CT is generally frowned upon and is considered to be illegal.
