I live south of Tampa but I always end up going with the Florida 4x4 group. Great group of people to wheel with. Never a dull moment and always welcoming new people

Definitely! What part of town are you in? I'm in south Lakeland off Lakeland highlands road. If you see a bone stock white sport 4 door with temp tags on the weekend it's probably me.

I have a lot of maintenance to do on it before i do any kind of extensive wheeling but I'd like to hit a trail or two in the meantime. Is there anywhere in or around Lakeland to get off the pavement for a while?

Are there any good salvage yards around the central part of the state? I passed by a pick and pull type place near largo and thought about getting over there one weekend. Would rather not have to drive that far if possible

Hey Everyone,
I'm relatively new to the forum, but have found a wealth of info already! I have a couple of mods I would love to do, but first I gotta get her running right! I am in the Apopka/ Longwood area. Nice to see I've got some "neighbors" here....

Just saw a lifted XJ heading north on 75 near the tarpon springs/land o lakes exit, covered in what looked to be fresh mud. Was this one of y'all?

putting a feeler out on a headliner board, and 4 2000 sport rims w/ crappy tires. I removed the headliner board and original headliner to redo the fabric.. got it all done, and reinstalled and realized I hated the way it looked. It is just taking up space in my garage and I have no immediate plans to replace it.

The rims were on it when i bought it. They're in great shape, but the tires are awful. They just come as a package as I don't have any plans to remove the tires.

If you're interested, make an offer. I'm up for trades; I'd like to get a black grille and headlight trim rings. Let me know what you have.

I still need to drain my head lights and fog lights after my exploration of swamp ghost last weekend. A lot of guys from Orlando area on the Florida 4x4 Facebook page. Should go check it out!
