Hey Guys! New to CT and Jeep Ownership
« on: December 04, 2017, 01:33:59 PM »
Hey everyone! My name is Nick and I just moved to Norwalk from the Seattle area to start a new job. I purchased a 2017 JKU Rubicon to make the cross-country drive. I traded in my '09 4Runner for the Jeep, so I'm crossing over from the dark side I guess.

I'm really excited to make it out to a meet-and-greet soon and meet some of you. Seems like Northeast Jeep is an awesome organization so hopefully I can make the cut and join the club.

Welcome to the forum,

The dive was non-eventful. The first 2 days were great, but once I hit eastern North Dakota I was ready to be done haha. I did quite a bit of off-roading on the west coast in my 4Runner. There were a ton of old logging roads where I lived that weren't maintained, but were legal to drive on. In the winter I did a ton of snow driving, which is probably my favorite type of off-roading.
