None.....One of the true joys of living here. Rausch Creek in PA or the Pine Barrens in NJ are unfortunately the closest spots to legally wheel.

Im new from LI as well. And unfortunately theres no place to legally wheel. your only "sort-of" alternative is the hunting trails all the way out east... the beach is the only legal place with permits... robert moses isnt so bad, but its def not the trails

If you guys are into wheeling, check out Long Island Off Road:
http://www.ec4wda.org/lior/

Most of them hail from out on the Island but, as you have just seen, due to the distinct lack of legal wheeling ON the Island, they venture off at least once a month and come north up here into CT and MA and have access to private lands and they know most if not all the legal public stuff up here too.

Talk soon,

Tj Long Island Gearing Shops and Axle Work

Hi All,

New to the Jeep Forum and lovin it! I picked up a 2001 Wrangler SE with 33's, a 4" lift, custom bumpers, winch, and a bunch of other goodies this Summer. Problem is, there's virtually no power with the stock gearing and the 33's. If I am going to be doing daily driving (some highway and Summer beach), do you guys recommend 4.10 or 4.56 ratio?

Also, since we are all from Long Island (I am on the Nassau-Suffolk border), does anyone know of any good shops that re-gear? Or better yet, does anyone know a reputable mechanic who does it on the side for less? What should I expect to pay for re-gearing both ends and potentially 2 axle swaps?

Thanks for your help!

Matt

Extreme Vehicle Builders, up in Danbury CT gets a lot of use from Islanders.
Not sure of anything more local though.
I'm sure the members of LIOR would have some great insight, as many of them have well built rigs.

Talk soon,

Depends on which permit you want to get. The STATE fishing permit you can get at Belmont Lake state park. With that permit you need to have fishing equipment with you for everyone in your party otherwise you risk a ticket from the state parks police.

There is a county permit also. To get that you need a suffolk county green key first. After you get that I think you can just buy your permit at the ranger station at the beach, Smiths Point or out in Montauk. That permit is mainly for camping.

There really is no wheeling on the beach, just cruise down to where you want to park and fish for the day or camp.
