Northeastern looking for friends and help
 
Hi all i am new to this whole forum thing. I live in mentor but moving back down towards the akron area soon, just looking for some jeep friends, and friends that like to work on jeeps. I would love to learn how to fix and take care of the problems with my jeep as well as add mods myself, i really don't want to pay lots of money to have someone else do it. My jeep is currently down( i am hoping it's just a clutch issue and not the transmission ) just looking for people that love their wranglers as much as i do and enjoy working on them in their free time. I am looking to do lots of mods soon and would love in put at what to do first or some of the better ones to do

You may pm me as well, I am in the suburbs of Akron.

Akron area here as well. Anybody got some off road areas around here they know of? Hell, I'd even like a few fellow local Jeepers to cruise with!

Beaston23 06-04-2012 07:30 PM

A lot of people enjoy Southington OffroadAbout Us which is not to far from us in the Akron area



Good group of people and fun times!

localc13 06-04-2012 09:48 PM

well once i get mine up and running again i would gladly go cruising with you, i need more jeepster friends

Jesse the Ripper 06-05-2012 05:14 AM

Well I'd like to say I can help fix your wrangler but I'm just not THAT good with auto mechanics. I know some but not enough to diagnose a problem properly. I do, though, use tools and fix stuff like a boss. We just got to get you running. No one should be Jeepless!

localc13 06-05-2012 03:44 PM

I know especially this time of year

Jesse the Ripper 06-05-2012 03:55 PM

Well get that Jeep running! I can help you to the best of my abilities. BTW were you planning on going to Bantam? Check it out on my other thread. It would be a great incentive to get your Jeep running!

Jesse the Ripper 06-07-2012 06:14 AM

localc13 06-07-2012 02:02 PM

Is it private or public land? Any fees or vehicle requirements?

YJ Addict 06-12-2012 09:16 AM

Its totally free its all private land but is owned by an overly friendly amish family who has given us full permission to wheel anywhere in the woods as long as none of the bordering crop fields are damaged along the road going in. And like i said anything from stock setups to built rigs can have fun here my first trip was in a bone stock yj on street tires and we went plenty of places and had a good day. I will also be planning some wellsville trips soon after i get my jeep this weekend also if youve never been there thats a place you have to see lol
