Eastern PA here. 1994 YJ SE 4.0

Owned since new in 2/1994. Been all over the East coast. asked for help in another thread on replaceing the windshield cowling, as I've fried my stereo and everything else under the dash is getting flooded everytime it rains. The job looks easy, but I am always wary of the unforseen, especially as I have had many such jobs creep into major clusterf&^%ks when things went awry.

Love my jeep, and love taking it to new places. Anywhere outside is where I want to be, and if there is water to fish, I am in heaven.

Thanks to everyone fo the warm welcome.

Been lovin' my jeep since the day I got it. Nothing else like it. Although once it was no longer the daily driver, I loved it even more.

Vaultzz - I grew up in Abington, and as a kid, we used to cruise the Hatboro strip.

I am in Morrisville, just along the Delaware river across from Trenton, NJ. It's a quick hop to the Pine Barrens, where there are plenty of sandy trails, sand pits, swamps, logs and other playgrounds, but no rocks, walls, or any real climbing. There are plenty of great places to fish for Largemouth and pickerel throughout the woods, as the rivers are meandering, twisting, slow moving, and stained with the pine trees. They open up into large sprawling, shallow lakes all over. The only issue you may have wheeling there is maintaining a sense of direction. Paddling these rivers is also a lot of fun, no real moving water, but there are s many obstacles to get past, you need to be ready to get out of your canoe/kayak and get wet.

Wheeling in the Poconos is more difficult as so much of the land is posted. For a great weekend destination, take a ride down to Shenandoah. There are so many great trails all over the woods down there. You can traverse maountains and valleys, cross creeks, ride along ridges, there are double tracks, dirts roads and barely noticeable trails criss-crossing the mountains, with great terrain for exploring.

We also love the OBX. We make at least one pilgramage a year. The last several years have seen a lot of development, and now there are increasing numbers of regulations and beach closures. It has the natives in an uproar, especially as so many of the agitators pushing for these regulations are not residents. You now need a salt water fishing license to surf fish, and each year brings renewed discussions of beach buggy permits. It's all a money grab. Still, there's nothing like cruising the beach on Ocracoke with no one else in sight, pulling up to some virgin sand and tossing out some bait for blues, reds, black drum and sharks.

All the beaches in Jersey require permits, and I'm just not yet willing to pay a few hundred dollars to drive on the beach for a few months in the winter, or in the case of IBSP, only at the open end. I just don't get there often enough to justify the expense. Delaware also requires permits for their beaches, biatches!!!

My YJ is mostly stock, as without the need to climb rocks, I have been able to go everywhere I wanted on the stock set up. The GY-wrangler tires that came on it really sucked. I had a major sidewall blowout after wheeling. That sent me right to NTW, and I've run the BFG ATs ever since. Never been stuck, and the wear is excellent. I have a custom rear step bumper, front receiver bumper, roof rack for the kayaks, and that's about it. After 112,000 miles and almost 16 years, the only parts replaced so far are the alternator (siezed on me), the exhaust (Rusted out and the cat broke apart and rattled like hell), and the brakeliines which rusted and burst on me. As I noted in another trhead, if you'rew in the NE, the liquid ice melter on the roads is particularly corrosive to these, so check yours. Fortunately, mine blew out just after starting, so the engine was cold. Had it been warmed up and moving, I would have had a flaming jeep with no brakes careening down the highway!!!

At this point, she's just my toy, so I keep the mileage under 5,000 a year, and she remains exempt from emissions testing. That's how I wound up with a siezed alternator, The body is in excellent shape, but I need to consider replacing all of the rubber, as it has seen better days. It's noisy as all hell between the wind and all of the rattles and squeeks, but it's a jeep. The engine is strong, and the clutch seems tight as ever. I have regularly mainatined the fluids, changing all of them to synthetics years ago.

Perhaps I'll break down and so the lift, the bushings, body mounts and so on sometime in the near future, but for now, she just takes a beating and keeps on going.
