Looking for some family friendly 4wheeling.

Just finished building my jeep last fall (suspension wise) haven't really had a chance to take her out. Don't really know allot of trails in my area or people to go wheeling with. Been looking into clubs but not sure if I want to join yet.
I'm located in middleboro ma near Plymouth

My ride is a 97 tj with a 6" long arm lift riding on 35" tires. Stock Dana 30/35 with 4:10 gears, eng and drive line is brand new.

Would really appreciate some input.

try PatriotJeepers.but I'd be careful with 35" tires and a Dana 35!

If I were you I would look for a Ford 8.8 or Dana 44 for the rear and add a rear locker. open diffs would get you to far but if you lock that Dana 35 you will blow it up and will not be able to drive it.

also check out northshore jeeps. I went with them several times last year, good safe group, usually once a month wheeling from stock friendly trails to difficult.
