Grew up in Washingtonville. Just thought I would say "hi" while passing thru this thread.

Back when I was a teen, I use to be able to take my trail bike all over Washingtonville. Today, I see that there are numerous "new" housing developments where there use to be nothing but open (abandoned) land. From what I understood, the land was all the old Winery vineyards.

I only recently bought my Jeep but I learner to drive in an older one when I was younger so I knew about the wave... Its because not just anyone drives a Jeep.. It does not appeal to the sane market as some other cars... Just kinda a wave saying hey we on the same page Iit is nice to see

Ordered my first accessories.

Weathertech floor mats,
Locking lug nuts
lock container for the rear compartment so I feel a little better keeping things locked up in there and leaving the glove compartment/center divider unlocked and empty so if one day someone decides to look through it they find nothing and dont break anything in the process (i Hope)

You might have lost a resistor bank on the 1, 2, and 3 settings. This can be tested with a multimeter, or just replace the resistor bank (don't know what it's called in a Jeep) to fix it. Also, it could be caused by a lose wire. Good luck.

You might want to talk to Kyle, he his very good at setting up JK's for reasonable amounts of cash input. His rig outperforms every kit that comes to my place for less money than even the cheap crappy stuff. Pretty cool, guy did his homework. He has a facebook page under "dip this lift that".

Anyone familiar with the Hudson valley 4 wheelers club Hudson Valley 4 Wheelers ?

I'm thinking of checking them out and seeing if I might want to really offroad my rubicon a bit. Its a bit leery doing anything with a new vehicle but I like the idea of climbing up on mt beacon or someplace with it and kinda having some fun with it.

Got some good tough spots for you now, the rock section will work you hard if you choose the side with the bigger rocks. It has only been done once, plenty have tried. The two newest hills are quite hard, once will question your intelligence the other is just real technical.

Hey whats up! Like the new toy, been riding my off road bikes a lot this summer myself. We've added a lot of singletrack and just two new hills. Which race quad is that? Ever heard of Trevorton PA, one of the best places to ride off road (bike or quad) that I've been to. About a 3hr trip but so worth it.
