pauly21mc You can legally "wheel" in CT as long as you are on established roads or private property which you have permission to be on. ie. You can wheel places like green rd. In Ellington or Porter rd. Also in Ellington. You can also "wheel" state Forrest access roads which are marked and if the gates are open. But yes wheeling in CT is generally frowned upon and is considered to be illegal.

umk4zack I would love to wheel in CT, but don't know anywhere to. I'm from the New Haven county, so if anyone wheels, let me know. I also have buddy who wants to wheel

acf5 Any wheeling in Connecticut is illegal
However...
The guys I've been with told me they have passed DEP and other police and just got a nice wave. General rules for anywhere:
Don't litter
Don't tear stuff up
Don't be loud
Don't go out at night
Be street legal

And nobody really cares.

WillyWheeler I'm in Derby, but it seems like all the meet ups are up north in Windsor.

acf5 Yep, somewhat I guess. Whereabouts are you?

acf5 My turn signal lights keep blowing on my flares. I'm waiting to see what's causing it once the back glass is replaced. Maybe I'll have some insight

Not really. I initially thought it might be the MF switch or the relay but when I replaced the bulb in the offending marker (burned/shorted out), that particular issue resolved.

I know I need to replace the sockets in all front markers, as they are corroded. I'm guessing that the corrosion + the burned/shorted bulb both contributed to the condition. I'm not looking forward to what the stealerships have for price points on replacement sockets for the four front marker lights. I suppose I should suck it up sooner than later but I will wait for a warm-spell: buy them/do them or they will wind up lost and forgotten in the garage!

YMMV, and invariable will...

Her and your dad could ride with me, the 4runner rides 1000 times smoother than the jeep she wouldn't get bounced around too much. I took my mom and in laws wheeling before they had a blast !

It's immediately going in for a 2.5" AEV lift and Duratrac 35s wrapped around the black Pintlers I'm transferring over from my JK so I hopefully will bring her home by the end of the week! Then the real fun starts when I get to work adding all the goodies (bumpers/winch/lighting/audio) that came off my JK plus a few other things the wife allowed me to buy for the new rig; a consolation present for me giving up the 2 dr. in anticipation of the arrival of our first child... thankfully I have until early June to "finish" it.

Hope to be able to join up with the club later this winter/spring or at the very least meet a few local Jeep addicts.

Happy Trails!
Enjoy that new rig! Hopefully we will meet up soon...stay tuned for event and meeting announcements.

Tiki Dave Ok so if you have read all of this thread from the beginning you have noticed it has grown from some people meeting up for summer get-togethers to a club called ECOJOCS (East Coast Offroad Jeepers of Connecticut).
Some of you were there from the beginning and some are new to the thread.
This Sunday at noon, ECOJOCS is having its monthly meeting and membership is open. Come check us out and meet a great group of guys and gals and learn about us and hopefully if you like what you hear you will join our group.

Location is at UNION STREET TAVERN 20 Union St, Windsor, CT 06095. Sunday the 12th at noon.

Come check us out.
