That's why I only went for a Turkey Day drive along the main stretch of it... Just got lucky since it had been raining and came across some mud

There's a few places not to far in lower NJ, not that i want to go to NJ. I just wating for the snow this year, i haven't even hit 3k on my jeep yet and i already ordered my Rubicon kit. I was thinking of doing 20s with 35s, do you guys think i should just stick with 18s for the 35s, alot better side wall.

where in Jersey? How far from DE? I've been going to Rausch Park in Tremont, PA. About 2.5hr drive from Bear. Like RC but would like to find something closer.

A few mud/sand trails in the "Pine Barrens". Look up Hammonton NJ on google maps then look north in that road-less area between Rt 30 and Rt 70. The place I usually go to is Wharton State Forest, it's about an hour away. No rocks, strictly mud, sand and water. Most of the forest is easy enough that you can do in 2wd with street tires but once you get into the muddy sections even trucks with tractor tires have problems (and dig the ruts even deeper so Jeeps don't have a chance without using a winch). I'm trying to figure out a route for a DEJA trip on New Years.

That sounds like a good run.

It's Joe here (cut.it.out on DÉJÀ) from our RC run the other week. I went back this past Sat as I said. Was great.

One of the guys in our group has the JK unlimited with 3" lift and 33's and got stuck in the same spot on that blue trail as the other week. Teetering on same rock!

My tires are getting worn, not sure if I could handle extreme mud with these. Debating what to do with my Jeep as we discussed. Could always go for the easier trails or I'll upgrade to 33 Dura Tracs like PainProphet.

Id do 17's. You have a lot better tire selection and sidewall. If you are going to off-road there is no point in getting fancy wheels they will just get damaged.

From Mifflintown, PA, but visit down in Dover/Hazlettville area quite often.

There seems to be nothin' in Delaware, wheelin' wise. I thought we were unfortunate!

Not only that, but the stares I get when I cruise on down the strip in the TJ, its like I'm an alien. Ha.
No one in the Dover area thats a hardcore wheeler?

There are a couple big TJs around Dover, but most stay on the Delaware forum... www.delawareja.com/forum/ We do monthly rides at Rausch Creek, and the more hardcore guys goto Big Dogs regularly.

I was just curious seeing how Jeeps nothin around here and when I go down there, it's like I'm crazy or somethin.
We'll have to plan a get together sometime in Dover if y'all are interested.

ESJA land is Technically in Delaware. But we are a MD Based club. I am only 20 mins from it.

We can say it's the only "Legal" Wheeling in Delaware at least.

it's legal because it's private land... there's a private spot about a mile from my house that a few people I know use for mudding, but it's not my thing. So, technically, there is "legal wheeling" in Delaware, but only if you know the owners of the property or pay the land fee and other rules that ESJA has.
