brighton +1 for Happy Trails. They did my gears/lockers and some other items on my jeep over the past few years. Molly and Melvin will take care of you.

CrossOps No real answers here unfortunately jsherman007. I don't even check here that much anymore. Call Molly at Happy Trails 4x4 904.222.8358 she is awesome, mention you spoke to me "Christian" from MEALSPEC.

jsherm007 I have a TF leveling kit I need to put on as well! Where should I go?
07-31-2014 08:52 PM
CrossOps Gecko or NFGZ... is happy trails a good place to get my TeraFlex Level Kit done? New to jeeps, but it is all I could find, and I know no other jeep owners around here.

Anybody going? Never been before, was wondering if it's fun.

The group I'm apart of (RocksnRutz) will be there. It's cool to look at all the jeeps, but your wallet hates it because your wish list grows. Also, they have great raffle prizes.

I've been to a couple events that they hosted or came to, there's some nice jeeps in their club. I doubt I'll make it ... I have an exam tomorrow ...

Not local per se, but flagler estates has few places to run through.

Wheeling T Thanks for the response. Not the answer I was looking for. LoL. Was hoping to find local places I could quickly hit.

not legally. Check out Osceola and Ocala. Those are legal wheeling and camping spots

GeckoSupra I went to Picketville/Commonwealth about 2 weeks ago - is really dry right now.

Wife and I tried to find "Four Creeks" but all the roads were blocked off with gates from the Yulee side /shrug.

Went to a small trail by Town Center behind the Gate gas station/apartments - assume this is what everyone was talking about?

Guy @ work mention the FJ Cruiser guys are going to an area of Southside Blvd. and Hogan road - he showed me the map on google.

I'm down for a trip to Osceola forest if anyone wants to meet up or beach...whatever

14OscarMike Tinseltown here on Jax southside. Anyone looking to get together to do an install on my 2014 jk one weeknd?! I thinking a 2.5TF lift with shocks.

JRoweMDN That sounds like the clutch is bad spinning free at temp.

Yeah I posted in the tech forums and then did some googling, all signs seem to point to that. Funny thing is, I drove the jeep to operating temp and then turned it off, free spun the fan and was able to do so easily which from what I read means the clutch was bad, but once I start the jeep up the fan is spinning like normal. Am I checking this correctly? Oh, then I found an article that says to try and spin it on a cold motor LOL

GeckoSupra Anyone heard of Four Creeks in Nassau -- one of the FJ Cruiser guys @ work mentioned the area. Allowed to drive? Any good trails?

Four Creeks State Forest and WMA

GeckoSupra I wouldn't drive on any land that has signs posted personally.

Unfortunately, its the property owner's burden to post the signs to keep people away:

Under Florida Statutes section 588.10, a property owner must provide proper notice to all parties that may enter the property. All gates, fence corners, and all boundaries that lay along waterways must have posted notices of proper size and composition. The postings can be no more than 500 feet apart. If no notice of trespassing is posted on a piece of property and the party cannot know who owns the land, the party may not be able to be assumed to be a trespasser. This may change the party's status in liability for damages for harm that may befall that individual. Certain facilities require different wording in the posted notices, and a different penalty for the person caught trespassing.

Keep in mind even if there are not signs, you could still be charged under:

Chapter 375.314, Florida State Statutes prohibits persons from damaging any public lands by the use of a motor vehicle and in addition to criminal penalties, also subjects the owners of the vehicles to civil liability for damages caused by the actions of their vehicles. Violators can be arrested by any law enforcement officer who witnesses a violation of this law, or for criminal trespassing.
