South Jersey meet up
 
Hey Everyone!

I just bought a 2012 JK and I will be returning to South Jersey on July 18th. This is the first Jeep i've ever owned but I am extremely excited todrive it when I return from my overseas assignment. Would anyone in South Jersey, particularly the Sicklerville/Williamstown area be interested to meet up and show me some trails and/or useful info about my jeep? Also, I huge into fishing and will be headin to the shore quite a bit so if any other Jeepers out there want to join let me know.

I'm game for the trails part.
Don't know anything about 2012 JK's other than I can;t afford one :-)

I'm going to guess you want wide trails with no loss of paint or water inside, right?
Thursday night ride or Friday sometime is OK.

ssgtjpusmc 07-05-2012 02:46 PM

She is still brand new so I would rather not add some "pinstripes" just yet...kinda hoping to sling a little mud and see what it's like in a Jeep. I used to do it a little in my old Dodge Ram but i'm sure this is completely different (and way more awesome)

SJS 07-05-2012 04:33 PM

Let me know I just got 2012 jk too and would love to meet up

i'm the somewhat new owner of a JKUR, i've been out wheeling with some guys from the forum a few times in Wharton, it's definitely a good time. there's always a little something for everyone. if you guys want to go out wheeling PM me and ill give you my number, i'm not superr familiar with the wharton trails yet but i know my way around the major ones. i'm mostly free randoms weekdays. i'm off wednesday and friday next week.

Lineman827 07-05-2012 09:43 PM

ssgtjpusmc 07-06-2012 01:58 AM

Thanks for all the replies! Once I get back in 12 days I will send you guys a PM with my cell # and we can meet up. Hopefully your heat wave ends by that time.

SJS 07-06-2012 09:36 AM

Great, count me in

Lineman827 07-11-2012 06:14 AM

poss. thinkin bout baggin thurs or fri altogether, or leavin work early. any1 up for some trails?

ssgtjpusmc 07-11-2012 06:22 AM

When I get home next week it is for 30 days of leave so I will be free to go anytime. I am actually looking into buying some JKS Sway Bar Quicker Disconnects for better off-road handling...you guys think this is a worth while investment for our area?

Saranrap 07-11-2012 08:54 AM

Im in glassboro, just posted about jeep meets for SJ. Would love to get together with some fellow jeepers, meet and maybe do some light trails. My jeep is bone stock aside from tint/quick disconnect mirrors so i cant do anything crazy :(

Lineman827 07-11-2012 09:28 AM

mines outfitted pretty gd, but i dont get crazy.

BIGTom 07-13-2012 06:55 AM

Lineman827 07-13-2012 04:30 PM

aJeep4Jaime 07-22-2012 08:21 PM

Just now chiming in....I'd be in for a run through Wharton, I'm a school teacher so I'm off weekdays too.

Looking forward to meeting some other Jeepers!

ssgtjpusmc 07-22-2012 08:27 PM

I went for an exploratory drive down through batsto today and it seems the trails down there are endless. I stuck to the main trails since I was alone and didn't feel like getting lost but there only a few mud holes and the rest was really dry. I think that these trails could handled by any jeep.

Lineman827 07-22-2012 08:37 PM

id be in, but.... lost the rear on sat. not sure of the extent of the damage yet... hopin its just ring & pinion. a relatively cheap fix compared to a nice d44. soon as i get it fixed im up for a wkday ride

dennis461 07-22-2012 09:48 PM

Friday 7/27 ?
Meet at a diner.

srad600 07-22-2012 10:04 PM

Damn lineman thats balls.

I have a noise I noticed today too but I think its probably just a bad/dry joint some where. I should be able to fix it tomorrow.

Yes! Everything is better disco'd

Olsen185 07-25-2012 12:19 AM

If anyone is interested I'm heading to Wharton on Sunday. It will be at least two of us, but possibly two other friends may go. I've never been there so we were just gonna explore, but if someone that has been there before and wants to lead, that would work too.

Depending on time & meet place I may be in. I am taking my littler sister out to practice driving on the trails---the only thing she can hit out there are trees! :punk:

Lineman827 07-25-2012 05:40 PM

I may be interested to go Sunday. Where and what time are you guys meeting?

Olsen185 07-26-2012 01:50 AM

That is still up in the air. In prior threads members mentioned that some trails begin at the Atsion Ranger Station, that may be a good place to start, but I have no experience. If that is the starting point I was thinking about a 11 am meet, but that is flexible too. That time works for my family but I'm not sure how that will work for everyone else.

But for right now I'll say 11am at the Atsion Ranger Station.
