South Jersey meet up

Hey Everyone!

I just bought a 2012 JK and I will be returning to South Jersey on July 18th. This is the first Jeep i've ever owned but I am extremely excited todrive it when I return from my overseas assignment. Would anyone in South Jersey, particularly the Sicklerville/Williamstown area be interested to meet up and show me some trails and/or useful info about my jeep? Also, I huge into fishing and will be headin to the shore quite a bit so if any other Jeepers out there want to join let me know.

-Justin

I'm game for the trails part.
Don't know anything about 2012 JK's other than I can;t afford one :-)

I'm going to guess you want wide trails with no loss of paint or water inside, right?
Thursday night ride or Friday sometime is OK.

She is still brand new so I would rather not add some "pinstripes" just yet...kinda hoping to sling a little mud and see what it's like in a Jeep. I used to do it a little in my old Dodge Ram but i'm sure this is completely different (and way more awesome)

When I get home next week it is for 30 days of leave so I will be free to go anytime. I am actually looking into buying some JKS Sway Bar Quicker Disconnects for better off-road handling...you guys think this is a worth while investment for our area?

Just now chiming in....I'd be in for a run through Wharton, I'm a school teacher so I'm off weekdays too.

Looking forward to meeting some other Jeepers!

I went for an exploratory drive down through batsto today and it seems the trails down there are endless. I stuck to the main trails since I was alone and didn't feel like getting lost but there only a few mud holes and the rest was really dry. I think that these trails could handled by any jeep.

If anyone is interested I'm heading to Wharton on Sunday. It will be at least two of us, but possibly two other friends may go. I've never been there so we were just gonna explore, but if someone that has been there before and wants to lead, that would work too.

Depending on time & meet place I may be in. I am taking my littler sister out to practice driving on the trails---the only thing she can hit out there are trees!

That is still up in the air. In prior threads members mentioned that some trails begin at the Atsion Ranger Station, that may be a good place to start, but I have no experience. If that is the starting point I was thinking about a 11 am meet, but that is flexible too. That time works for my family but I'm not sure how that will work for everyone else.

But for right now I'll say 11am at the Atsion Ranger Station.
