Why would you not turn off all of those controls? They only restrict you on the trail.
As mentioned there is 4WD+Parts on Military Tr in WPB and two more shops in Hobe Sound/Stuart.
You can check out my web site (this is not the club's official site, just me keeping track of things) for info on the Jupiter Jeep Club where I am a member and some other guys in the local area.

WhiskeyMike I go out once a month or so. PM if you want to go sometime. I went last week to Corbett, but the rain has been piling up, and they weren't draining at all, so everything was very high.

As far as shops, there is 4Wheel parts which is national. I've done my own work, so can't vouch for service. You'd be surprised how much you can do yourself. Morris4x4 is in North Broward off 95, Cypress. Stopped in today and they have a very small showroom, but lots of parts you can see online and pick up there.

Welcome to the Jeep World and WF. It's a fun time! If you need anything, don't hesitate to ask.

hombredelassrtas Sounds great. Normally i am able to pull but the google maps sat view on the trail and you can make out the trails in the sat picture but this time my signal was crap so it would not load. Ill try yours out and see.

WhiskeyMike Forgot to mention that it allows you to download maps prior so you can navigate when offline. Unfortunately, the maps for Corbett stink (no trails). After I record all/most of the trails, I hope to submit them to open maps so it becomes available as part of the standard package.

For this trip, I had cell data on and could watch sat maps.

WhiskeyMike I used MotionX HD on my ipad. Set it to record track when we started and stop when done. Added a couple points in google earth afterwards, but wish I had recorded more along the way. They have a similar non-HD version for iPhone as well. Although it's not the drive version with directions. At least I don't think you can do it with the drive version.

It's not bad for a $1.

hombredelassrtas How did you do that?? I need to do that next time. Curious how far we got when we broke from the group
01-11-2013 10:43 PM
WhiskeyMike Here's a Google Earth track if someone wants to see the path. We didn't go everywhere some of the others did as we stopped to help some folks, but this was the main trails we traveled.

Only good news is that he's getting a new motor. Water splashing up wrecked it pretty hard. Seemed electrical when it happened, but turned out to be a bent rod. Fortunately his insurance company is being real good to him. Can't remember where he went to, but he's been really happy with them. He's supposed to have it back this next week. He's ready to go again, but I think he's picked out an 8 ft tall snorkel and planning to mount an airboat shell to the bottom.

I have some photos from the day and a GPS track I'll upload soon.

Last time I went to Delray Jeep, I was not too impressed.
