turkalini Hows it
I Just bought a 2013 jk Gecko green, added rims with 33's and my lift kit will be getting installed in a few days.
Just wanted to say Aloha to my fellow Jeepers on Oahu.

Mad dog 21 This was both groups coming together on the go topless day out at bellows beach.
05-20-2014 02:24 AM
Mad dog 21 Well, I have been on island for half a year so far and there are two groups here. You will have use Facebook for these two. You have the huge club "Oahu jeeps" and more serious "Oahu heavy hitters". You make your call as both are good and educated

HRQLS Aloha Jeepers... I'm new to forums and also Jeeps. Looking for some people to do some wheeling with, and learn about jeeps. I'm local, prior Navy, but just looking for pure enthusiasts, not 'go for broke' wheelers. Please keep me posted on future events on Oahu. Mahalo

supacooper Just arrived myself. Beautiful is an understatement. Ran across a rally for National Topless day today. Luvin the island already.

Tressie I'll be on Oahu in June. Military.
03-09-2014 11:58 PM
Mad dog 21 There are so many jeeps here but they (tourists) are not serious jeepers. After looking at your profile I see your military and most of us are military or locals. We are all friendly but we can help with any information that you can think of. Also look at the above posts for local clubs (oahu heavy hitters). I reside in pearl city but work out of KBay. I'm new to jeeps and off roading.

Texrock Hi all, I'm getting ready to move to Oahu in April. Looking for a fellow jeep people to meet up with.

Mad dog 21 I'm very interested in going out with y'all. I'm very new to jeeps and off roading in general. I have some basic knowledge though. I have been reviewing, you tubing, forum hunting everything. So anything it better than nothing. Also I have played under the jeep just to make sure everything is we're it needs to be. Long story short, I will keep an open mid and learning on my own. Thanks again for all the information as well. I wasn't aware that I was in the wrong and I should know better than others except HPD. Thanks again.

Like Jason said, Oahu Heavy Hitters is a great group. I was one of the founding members, but ended up leaving (LONG story I won't repeat, but BLUF, I ultimately blame it on my burn-out). They are very active and have some of the most collective knowledge of any group out there. There is also Oahu Jeeps, which is bigger, but I think less active as a group (more like a collection of sub-groups under one banner). Not knocking either, just depends on what you want.

Just do us a favor, keep serious wheeling activities to legitimate areas. DLNR can get a hard-on for Jeepers sometimes, especially at Ka'ena Point (on the Dillingham side).

All that being said, while I'm not a part of a group, I do go wheeling every couple of months. One of the guys I go with knows Peacock Flats like the back of his hand. You can hit me up via PM here or on Facebook (there are a million Kevin Parker's but not many in Hawaii, I don't think) if you are interested. Next trip is going to be in late March or early April.

Have fun and keep the shiny side, er, MOSTLY up.
Kevin

Facebook oahu jeeps. Not really a club per say but a group. There's another one also called Oahu Heavy Hitters which I'm a part of with my stock jeep. They are a great group and real helpful. Someone always turning wrenches and willing to help if needed for beer and pizza

Post pics of the wheel wells and one head on from the front. List the tire size. The forum is really good at identifying suspension.

cosmokramer Welcome to the club. Which island are you on? Maui off road and 4 wheel parts are probably the best bet to have your suspension check out if you are on oahu. After searching and asking around, not many other off road places are reputable. Good luck.

Alwayzforgotn Just picked up a TJ yesterday! Proud to be part of the Wrangler Ohana. I think I need to get my suspension inspected before going wheeling. I can't wait! Anybody know somewhere inexpensive or perhaps want to meet up to school me on some lift knowledge? Really want to make a hobby out of this. Expensive hobby I know, but who can blame me?
