I was injured this year in a terrible car accident not my fault. so I got rid of all the fast stuff and I too purchased a jeep to do a trip like this. She is almost ready. But the next time or next year you want to do a summer trip I would love to tag along with you im in pa now but since the accident took me and placed me on long term disabilty I am available at anytime. Accidents some times can be life changing. Hope to hear from you and love your trip... cheers....

Hi, fellow ADV dude.

By most of the accounts I've read of the whole thing, the TAT is mostly Jeepable until you get into the wilds of Colorado, Utah, and westward. Some of that is singletrack. Perfect for a dirt bike, but not so much for a street-legal Yeep.

But the Mississippi portion is entirely Jeepable, save for a couple water crossings, depending on the time of year (flooding from hurricanes, etc). Bypasses are marked on the TAT maps you get from Sam.

For a great TAT Ride Report, check out Cannonshot's...

Wildkardboyz, here is a link to information on the Trans-Eastern Trail, which includes a lot of stuff in your area (PA)... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=508552

I'm Stretch67 on ADVrider. Here are a couple of my own ADV rides that could be done by Jeep:

Alaska... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=240664

I just read the ride report on the TAT that seems like it would be a fun trip in a jeep. Definitely more comfortable even in a YJ!

Sorry to dig up this old thread, but, it's epic! I'll be preparing my Jeep for this trip in 2017 as a graduation gift to myself. You should check out OutdoorX4 magazine. they only have 2 editions so far, but it's a great read! its an expedition/outdoorsman/jeep modding magazine that goes perfectly with this lifestyle.
