Anyone know of a good 4x4 shop near Ellsworth? I have a stock '04 TJ Sport that I want to get a lift on so I can run 33's. I have neither the patience nor mechanical skill to do this myself and want to find a reputable shop to do the work for me. Thanks in advance.

Hey. There is actually a Jeep club based out of the Bangor area. There is lots of know how and could probably help you out so you don't need a shop.

Penobscot Valley 4-Wheel Drive

Hey All, obviously this thread has been dead for awhile... but Im sure theres some noobs (like me) and guru's around looking for places to wheel in Maine. Im sure places have changed since the last 2010 posting on this thread.
Im in Bridgton....lakes region, stock WJ (2002 Grand Cherokee) Im looking for places around here and others to 4wheel with.

Sand is for people unable to navigate objects.
1st Jeep I ever drove or worked on.....the M151A2.

Havent really had a chance to find anything legit, I mean theres tons of back roads here. But its creepy shooting down a narrow dirt road for a mile or two and coming face to face with the front door of somebodies house. Lots of long, unmarked private driveways up here with people preferring you wern't wheelin on their road.
I'd like to hook up with a club once I get some decent off-road tires on my Jeep. But with the holidays coming, its gunna be awhile.

Yeah I haven't met up with any clubs around here yet. Haven't found much other than the offroad park in Lewiston. I would definitely be interested in meeting up for a drive anywhere that's in the dirt!

Markr I'll keep that in mind. I'll try and ask around about some places near by.

for those of you living in the Southern Maine area, I'd recommend looking up Maine4x4 . Their a large club with many weekend rides and annual events.

Western Maine Mountain Jeepers in Bethel have monthly rides, they are the host club / local coordinators of the Maine Mountain Jeep Jamboree. They do monthly runs in the Bethel or Mid Coast areas.

Exploring New Hampshire is another active club, but obviously they are based in NH but they do some interesting, mild runs on class 6 roads mostly. Class 6 roads are closed to 4x4 during the winter - late spring.

Northern Maine is the place to jeep. Aroostook county is the largest county east od the mississippi, and also the northmost in Maine, a lot of rock quaries and farm road. With a little rain means mud, weeling up here is real off roading, when you have to cut down trees to keep going, you know your in the woods. if anyone is ever in houlton or north of it and want to go wheeling hit me up, im always looking for new people to get stuck with

Wow! This is exactly why landowners close off their land. Keep treating others property like this and it wont be that long before no trails are left.


Visit Treadlightly.com and do some reading. It'll help all of us.
