New to WA

Hello to all . I'm a Navy guy that's up in the Northwest until February 08. Just received my 2008 Rubicon and believe that it really needs to see some dirt or maybe in some snow while I'm up here. Living in Oak Harbor and just searching the site looking for some locals.

Just did some wheel'n at Reiter this Sunday with Synax, a new member to the forum here. It was his first time hitting the trail in his stock TJ and I must say I was impressed! Great example of how good the stock Jeeps are as he made it on all the trails we ran that day with some of them being pretty challenging. And a lot of for a guy willing to push his Jeep on that terrain. Reiter isn't always kind to rigs.

Read the write-up and see pix here.

Anyways, look'n good on the trails, Synax!

Jon did awesome and definetely pushed his stocker to the limit. I was surprised how far he was able to get on alot of the more difficult obstacles. When he throws on alittle lift and some better tires he'll be set.

more problems arose, and more parts are on order for the t-case:

Some of the early rubis had some assembly problems with the tail shaft and a thing in there that provides the speedo signal called a "tone ring". The Rubi uses a NP241OR t-case, and the speedo signal is all electronic, instead of old school gear driven. the tone ring and associated gadgetry is FUBAR'd.

So right now it doesn't sound likely that the heep will be home for Christmas.

Reiter was awesome. I was very impressed with how the Jeep held up. I know my old S10 Blazer couldn't have made it through have of the stuff I did.

If you have a stock Jeep, don't be afraid to take it offroad - remove the sway bar links and you will have quite a bit of flex to get over some of the tough stuff.

The thing that surprised me most is how well street tires held up on the trails - lowering the tire pressure sure helped a lot.

I think that'd definitely be possible. I'm itching to stick with Reiter to wrap up some mapping but I don't see why a run to Walker Valley couldn't be considered . . . . it's
