Well I try to stick to the rules of posting in the right place but I just don't see any other place for this post. Since I am a TJ owner I want to hear from you guys. I just got orders to Key West and will be leaving Hawaii. ( I know the Coast Guard is tough on me :-) My question is what type of 4 wheeling will I get into there? I know there is no wheeling on the Keys but how about South Florida? I have some big upgrades in the future and want to plan accordingly. I also don't want to upgrade my axle if there is no wheeling to be had down there. I will just upgrade my gears and try again in 4 more years. Well guys let me know what you think. Thanks

Shane

Flat, no rock crawling. Don't know if they let you run the beaches there. Doubt it, though.

Look at it this way -- now you can take your rig to Moab, Utah; Ouray, Colorado, or Tellico, NC. You couldn't have driven over the Pacific ocean before...

I drove 1,800 miles one way to wheel in Moab. For you, it's 2600 miles.

There are some pretty good Jeep clubs in FLA. And the wheeling there is a lot of sand & mud. There are some beaches that are open to traffic after a certain hour of the day, but check the local rules.

Hi welcome to South Florida almost. I've never been to Hawaii but Key west is interesting Check out www.jeeptalk.net (jeep club in Miami,palm beaches use this site.) www.caloosajeepers.com (Jeep club for Naples/Fort Myers or SW Florida) www.Floridajeepers.com. Closest place to wheel in key west is near mainland in Florida city and many places in Miami. Get set up for sticky soupy mud and sand and water.

You can take a longer trip and wheel the Ocala national Forest. Porbably nothing but mud and trails but its better than nothing.
