Any Jeepers living in Italy out there?

I'm studying abroad in Rome til december. I've been missing my Jeeps and got to wondering if there are any Jeepers living in Italy out here. I see a lot of land rovers and zuks but very few Jeeps. Ciao!

John

I'm down in Sicily. I'm sure there's a few in Naples. Pretty much any city with a military base will have Jeepers. Although there are a surprising amount of Italians with Jeeps. I bumped into one guy with a TJ running off of Propane

There's a guy at my favorite bar in Rome, La Botticella, who has a propane driven TJ. He said the laws for lifted vehicles are insane over there.

I'm going to be in Italy next month with my 09 Rubicon. Going to be stationed in Vicenza, I'm hoping to do some wheeling while I'm there!

I am station down in Sicily at Sigonella. My 98 Tj will be here by the end of the month. I cant wait to go off roading. There is a huge Jeep and offroading community here is Sicily. Not just on base, but out in town as well. There are quite a few Sicilian offroading websites here with boatloads of members. Practically every weekend all year round, I see mudded 4x4's returning from a fun weekend.

I can't wait.

another one here, and I believe I've seen at least 6-7 other Jeeps on post too. I miss the Jeep wave though They look at me like I'm crazy, but I won't stop doing it, it's a tradition! And it sounds like I need to go down to Sicily, I don't know of any clubs up here.

Nice. Well that makes two of us now. Where are you located? I actually have been out twice now, once with one of the clubs here and once with some friends. There are a ton of Jeeps on base. I need to start our own club.

Ciao. I am also in Sicily. Are you Italian or American? I am signed up with the Ciclopi Club here in Aci San Antonio. I have been offroading a lot with a couple of other groups, mainly in Nebrodi. I live in Aci Reale and have a Jeep Wrangler.

Well, I am a very freindly guy and I think that you will like my freinds. We are very nice Americans. We have Jeep Wranglers and mostly go off roading up in Nebrodi and Etna. I have been on a lot of trips around the island. I will pm you my number so you can call me. We are looking to go this weekend 13 and 14 November. Hope that you can come. Thanks. Mike
