      The new outdoor adventure park or whatever it's called below Treverton is on my list, just haven't been up that way yet, but we used to ride near whaleback damn near a decade ago...

Alot of it is nice clay up there and real soupy. Step in it and lose your boot. The main trails are easy riding and you could even take a car down some if you wanted (ive seen it done at highspeeds ) Pretty much everyone goes there and gets trashed. As far as directions hop on 61n and ride it all the way up. Go past old 61 and its like i wana say 20 minutes or so past mt carmel. Once you get up there, theres locals that will help you out and stuff but dont go solo. Very small world. Glad to see another local on here. (95% of these pictures dont show up for me) whats your rig? Also a heads up, if your rolling on some a/t's that arent very many plys then i would recomend bringing plugs and a pump as theres some debris up there from the locals. I cut 3 sidewalls on my 35x12.50's but plugged them to get me home. I now ride on 35x10.50 boggers which are 6 ply so i no longer have to worry about that.
      Thanks...my rigs a 2005 LJ, 2inch lift, 31X10.5 Duratracs Im in the process of monstalining it...pretty mild and mostly stock as you can see. I am worried about my tires as if you are familar the duratracs are an AT, although a very agressive one at that. Why do you say not to go up alone..get lost, get stuck, hear banjos?

      If you decide to go sometime hit me up...Id like to wheel for a day.

      Oh alright, i was under the impression for some reason that you never venture that way. Yea i have heard word that your supposed to have a reading anthracite permit but honestly i have never even seen one before and i have been going there for years. I also heard they only give out a very small number of permits a year and they are only available at a certain time so if this is true i wouldnt end up with one anyways as im sure the locals buy them out. Those are all good areas as well personally on the way up every time i love stopping at the old 61 and checking the cracks in the road as well as the new grafitti. Im not sure how much you have ridin up there but pretty much all the trails and pits have names like smurfs pond, mud rd, mud ln, the sands, the clay pits, etc. I believe its mud ln thats the worst one up there. Pretty much just really deep clay to the point where you have trouble even walking through it but i have seen some high dollar machines get stuck there as well as a stock rover on mudders make it through on the sidelines so i guess really as long as you have experience and arent stupid about it you will be fine.
      They finally got around to doing the outdoor park? I havnt been up there in close to a year but last time i was the locals were all pissed off because of talk about shutting down all the trails and making a park but then there would be no more drinking, camping, or other shenanigans. Hopefully its still good up there. Im sad to see everytime i go up its more and more destroyed by people dumping junk and whatever else.

      Nice, dont see too many newer rigs up there but all the main trails are plenty wide enough that you wont need to worry about scratchs until you get to the good trails. Clearance wise you should be fine for the most part just got to watch the lines you take. As long as they are meaty you will be fine tread wise but if they are only like 2 ply then just know that you are warned. I went many times before having tire issues but that one time was enough to make me upgrade. I dont recomend wheeling anywhere alone honestly for obvious reasons but i dont recomend going solo up there because you can get lost easily, or if you break down, run out of gas, get stuck, run into a pack of coyotes (yes there are many and even some bear) I rolled up in a buddys cherokee previously and we got it stuck. Burried up to the hood in clay (he has 4" lift and 34" tsl's) and his winch line was long but 2 feet shy of the nearest tree. We ended up sitting there for about an hour or two before a local found us and pulled us out. He then told us about how nobody enters that pit really because its soo soupy. It was our own faults though as it was one of few pits we never tried and alcohol gets the best of you. While its on my head i recomend a snorkel as well. Ive seen many people hydrolock up there. You can get away without one but its recomended.
      I run a 78 suburban with a 4" lift, 35's, and no snorkel until now but when i ripped my engine apart my oil pan was caked in mud and i know i had water in there many times. Im wreckless though on the trails. We baja the rocky trails at like 35mph where the back ends starting to slide out on ya. Ill be sure to keep you in mind though for future rides. IM trying to get something together soon so i can take my kx or blaster up as i havnt had either up there yet.

      The more I check this thread the more I desire a jeep as a second car and not a mki jetta coupe. Hope I can afford a 4 door jk someday.

      stay away from this thread...Jeeps are a contagious lifelong affliction.....if you dont listen to me you will end up living out of the back of your pristine jacked up JKU with maxed out credit cards and mud crusted on your clothing,and your face will still look like this

      I'm not going to lie, but I was some what disappointed with this thread

      I've loved jeeps since I was little because my dad has a 74 cj5, and that's what got me hooked on jeeps, but looking through this entire thread I've only saw a couple willies, one wagon (freaking loved that one the most), a couple cj's, an old school chief grand cherokee, and only a couple old j10's, I was quite surprised seeing brutas here, seen photos of that truck every where

      but this thread had mostly cherokee's and new yj's and tj's and even the new goofy jeeps, I just dont care about new jeeps and cherokee's they are every where, and when I read "JEEP only thread" i thought it was going to be a bunch of old school jeeps, but i guess I was misled

      but oh well, here is my old odd jeep, he has been put aside for now, work will continue on him in the future

      but he is an old 84 jeep J10

      holly cow

      such a good looking truck Irocz, Ive seen a couple J2000's and a J3000's and one J10, some had the 327 vigilante and others with a straight 6, i cant remember which one i saw were long beds instead, but they were all in pick n pull, just so sad, they had them for sale at a very cheap price too but i didnt have the money to buy them at the time

      but i love the V8 360 in mine, but the transmission and transfer case has to go though, seriously no numbers on them so i cant get any info on them and cant figure out what they are lol

      sigh..

      Yes of course let's not forget the "rule" that any jeep 1 model year newer then the one we happen to own isn't a real jeep and should never be discussed...


      Every Jeep pictured in this thread or being discussed is in fact a Jeep, how can the title be misleading when it simply says "the Jeeps only thread"?

      Well the thing is when I here the name Jeep, I think of the old cj's or scramblers and willies and wagons, and the full size jeeps like the j10s and the wagoneers and chief cherokees

      I've seen so many Cherokees I just don't care for them, and the tj's and yj's and the Rubicons are all to new and just don't really like them for some reason, hey look good but it seems like some thing is missing, but I don't know

      Every one has their preferences, and I prefer older jeeps

      And that is where any debate about this issue ends. This isn't the place to discuss that, start a new thread if you'd like to continue this line of thought. Thanks.

      How could you let the poor XJ sit for 2 years. Find a part out and buy the harness, swap it in and go.

      Selling? parting? modifying?

      I'd love to get my hands on that 3.07 hp30 I can't find one in the local pull a parts, don't really feel like buying one just to regear it. I think I found a few 3.73 and 3.55s, maybe a 4.10 locally. If any are what you'd want let me know I can bring one to WV with me and then meet with you to swap.. dead serious

      I recently drove my '83 Scrambler from Denver to San Francisco via Moab and Tahoe. It was like riding a horse for four days.

      Picked her up Friday morning, 2.5l, 5sp - rebuilt the transfer case, rebuilt the top end of the engine and she runs like a champ. $1500 came with hard top and bikini tops. I'm going to pull the interior and rhinoline the interior next weekend.

      Its great I havent had a Jeep since my 77 CJ7. Big tires coming soon.

      I've got a bunch of high end vintage audio gear I'm clearing out, restored Marantz 4270 - better than new condition; Pioneer SX-5590, 8/10; Concept 16.5, 8/10 cosmetically - 10/10 function. Various high end vintage speakers: Rectilinear Research, AR, Kenwood, Infinity, McIntosh, Leslie 251. PM me for details, clearing out to finance home theater upgrade.

      My tj is going back on the road in the next month! I can't wait to drive in the snow, and happy I won't need to take my low tdi out.

      There's actually wheeling to be done up there. There's really no place like Rausch Creek anywhere in MD or Eastern WV. I've heard GW national forest has trails, but I've heard they're just kind of meh.

      Very nice pictures.

      I''ve got a Jeep Wrangler TJ 4.0 stock and I'm amazed how good it is is off-road. Better then other stock 4x4s I've owned.
