Wilmington Nc Jeepers!

I am trying to find out if there are any active clubs left in Wilmington Or Jacksonville NC area? I Have a 04 Sahara TJ and would like to meet some like minded jeepers and do a little wheeling. This is my second TJ and I plan to build this thing up a good bit. PM me with any info or just post to, I am sure others have the same questions.

Edit: The TJ already has a 2 inch spacer lift and I am sitting on 32x10.50x15's. I want to go a little higher without breaking the bank, I was thinking of doing a 1 or 2 inch body lift so I could fit 33x12.50x15's like I had on my older TJ. Are there downfalls of this over doing a full blow suspention lift. I don't ever plan to rock crawl, just Mud, sand and trail wheeling.

Thanks in advance for an help.

Must....move....to....wilmington..... MAN I love that town. I keep hoping a gig will open up there so the wife, Jeep, and myself can move that way.

As to your question... I have a 2in spacers and use Cragars with 4in of backspacing. Fits 33s no problem. If you trim up your flares a bit you might even be able to flex . I am moving to 31 this week to gain more articulation.

I have not been there since my discharge from The Corps in 1993. It was a fun part of the country to live in. I did not have a Jeep then.
