Ok now that I have my Jeep, I have this urge to take it offroad :) I live in northern NJ and was wondering if anyone knew a good place to do some entry level wheeling? Nothing too crazy, but I would like to at least try to take my vehicle offroad :)

Thanks in advance!!

It's been 15+ years since I lived in New Jersey, but the Pine Barrens in central NJ have miles and miles of trails. It's pretty flat. Lots of sand and there's mud if you want to drive through that too. I wouldn't go alone out there. There's gotta be some trails in the Poconos too. But in New Jersey, most of the wheeling is done in the Pine Barrens/Wharton State Forest. It's a neat area and huge. You can get lost out there. Bring a GPS and don't go alone.

Anybody know good Mod ship in Northern NJ
I'm planning to lift my Jeep in few weeks.
If it were my jeep I'd go down to south jersey to Liquid Iron Industries.

As far as wheeling in North Jersey it's pretty scarce or illegal. I've hit some trails up in the West Milford area in the past, but really wouldn't remember how to get there as I with with a buddy who grew up there. I've spent more time down in the pine barrons tho. It's mild wheeling and all sandy trails. As the others said definitely don't go alone. We've ended up in the absolute middle of nowhere before and thank god we kept track of where we were going.

Or, take it about 3 hours west to Rausch Creek Offroad park in PA. They have entry level four wheeling classes and tons of trails for stock jeeps. $35 for the day.

like how easy? Lots of mud or rock? I have a renegade and wouldn't mind trying some off-roading.

You won't have any issues. Depending on the weather, it can be a little muddy but nothing terrible. Pretty flat, just a little bumpy here n there. They may close some of the roads up during the winter though.

thanks, sounds like it should be fine. I've never been there, obviously, are the off-road spots different from the hiking trails?
