New Jeeper and new in the US

Hello everyone,

I just moved from Montreal (Canada) to Bellevue and I'm the proud owner of a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport S.

I'd like to do some off-road adventure, starting with an easy trail - I have a stock jeep - so any advice is welcome (I already read a bunch of threads on that).

Also I'd like to equip my jeep with some new equipment - I was thinking front and rear bumper + new tires/rims + lifting the car - so again I'll take any advice on the brand/model, shop etc...

Thanks a lot!

PS: I'm pretty much a newbie in the mechanic area...

Our club is heading up to Walker Valley on sunday, you are welcome to come along. There are easy trails there, we might have some open seats if you want ride along. See our thread on walker valley for directions.
Always bring a compass, it is awkward to have to eat your friends.

Hi Skyounet! Check out the sticky at the top of the WA thread here. I've posted a number of ORV trail areas around the state. The tough part is that most of them will be shutting down soon due to weather or seasonal closures.

Tahuya, Elbe, Walker, and Reiter should still be open. And of course there are all sorts of forest roads to explore. Which can be fun for some snow wheel'n.

Tahuya and Walker should have some easier trails to run. Elbe and Reiter will have much harder trails and aren't recommended for stock. And Reiter is just now re-opening so the number of trails and length of trails is VERY limited.

Once spring / summer rolls around there will be some great options. But NEVER go wheel'n alone.

I'm out of it for a while but send a PM and keep in touch. . . when I get my rig put back together in late spring I certainly want to hit the trails.
