I'm a Marine stationed here. I've bought 3 Jeeps here so far, none of which were "destroyed" by rust. Don't be lazy, buy a hose and wash it once a week, and it'll stay pretty. Leave it sit outside and never wash it, and wowwww go figure it's going to rust.
Wheeling wheeling wheeling. Is there as many trails out here? No, of course not. Is it alright? Yup.
Oahu is what you make of it. If you think it's sucky, it's because you made it sucky.
Not one shop in Wahiawa will give you an inspection sticker, even if you pay extra. I've tried. And yes the restrictions on modified vehicles are retarded, but it IS Hawaii. Oahu's education rate is among the worst in the nation.
So, take it for what it is. There's lots of us have-to-but-dont-want-to-live-here military guys, but we make it a good time. Jeep's are a hell of a good hobby to have over here, because you'll do all the normal touristy stuff in about a month, and be sick of it.
Best of luck man -
