dinorocks Hi There-


I have been reading though the Jeep Buffalo thread and saw a post by XJ Knight regarding the name of an honest jeep (4x4) shop in the area. I tried to PM XJ Knight but box if full. If someone knows the name, can they please PM it to me?


Thanks!


I have a 2011 JK (bought last June with 28K miles from NF dealer...6 speed stock sahara)...I love it but having lots of problems and getting no help from dealer...latest issue I need to resolve ASAP is a death wobble (DW). I lost control on the thruway this morning and went off the road...lucky I was the only one involved. This happened AFTER the dealer replaced the steering shock. Took it back to the dealer today and they suggested $2K of repairs...steering box and new ball joints. The first time the DW happened I had my two young childern with me...I'm still shaking. I would like to have someone (other than the dealer) install a bolt kit which, from what I read, is the next best step.


I'm in Lancaster.


Thanks again for any suggestions!

Dino

Jeep Wrangler Club of WNY (JWCWNY) (Buf)


WNYOffroad.org (Buf)

Roc Jeeps (im not sure on site name or fb page) (Roc)

There are two clubs in elmira/corning
Twisted toys 4x4 and Back Country 4 wheelers

Wheeling options:

Whispering Pines (Lyons, Ny)
Wrangler Ave (Savona, Ny)
Specific to winter are Seasonal roads.

Some few times a year multiple private property open invite events.


Best thing I can recomend is follow along with the clubs. All events for the area they will notify of. Best bet is to start with the 3 FB based Buffalo area clubs. Especially WNY 4x4 as they are the most active local club in the area.

One thing to note about NY is that everything is private property or state land. All of which is closed to wheeling unless given permission.

Seasonal roads are a exception in that they are authorized by nys for motor vehicles but are not plowed in the winter


Hope to talk to you soon on one of the FB pages. Wrangler Ave is having a poker run/play day next weekend


Thank you brother...

Where exactly is this place? I live in Niagara falls and I've been looking for some places to wheel without worrying about getting in trouble (life in the city sucks) I never would trespass anyone's private property but I know there has to be some abandoned spots somewhere
