moving to orange county and ...

I was just offered a position in Ontario but will be living in Yorba Linda (my girlfriend is going to law school in Costa Mesa so it's in the middle). The only person I know out there is her so if anyone goes on any runs please pm me as I need new wheeling buddies.

Any recommendations on places to check out? Parts stores? Good mechanics? "Good" dealerships (the jeep is still under warranty so if I can get it paid for I will - haha)

Also, how well do jeeps run on the freeway - haven't seen too many out there and most that I do see are jks? I have taken it on the freeway stock but never w/ the lift/tires - want to regear and this might be the final push to do so.

Thanks guys - look forward to hopefully meeting some of you soon.

Keep it fast since the cops don't even look at you until you are over 75MPH. And that's just to see if you're breaking 85. Keeping up with traffic will be a b!tch sometimes. Things are fast there. Just not during rush hours. As for wheeling it's close to the same as your AZ spots. Not too gnarley. No good shop hook ups but if you want a great steak hit up Tony's Spunky Steer. It's just off Van Buren and the 15 out there in Riverside or Ontario. Can't remember exactly. Get the "Stockyard" and get it cooked just under what you like. The plate is sizzling so it cooks a little more in front of you. SOOOO GOOOOD!!! (I actually grew up in YL and frequently return there. Just got back to VA from there yesterday) And enjoy the In-N-Out for all of us that can't.

Check out Cleghorn rd, east of the I-15 in the Cajon pass. Big Bear also has nice trail. Pic-a-part in Ontario is the local junk yard and has a few jeeps. Welcome to OC!

I am in Yorba Linda too. Best dealership is Donavee in Placentia by far.

Check out myjeeprocks.com for a more local base of jeepers.

I don't have a problem keeping up on the freeways, cops rarely stop you. They are mostly after sports cars going about 80. As long as you keep it under say 75 your fine. Your biggest thing will be the traffic. We are going to big bear sept 11th. That's pretty near you, so pm if you want. Here's the link.

You'll be close to me. Welcome. Let me know when you want to regear. I know a few guys who do gear work.

Just went up to Big Bear last weekend to run John Bull. I rode in my friends' LJ. It did very well. But damn that belly pan!
