Hi from Brunswick, Maryland

Hello from Brunswick, Maryland. I just picked up my 2016 Jeep Willys. It has a 2" Mopar lift (dealer installed) and six-speed manual tranny. I have owned several other 4x4s, including:
- 1977 GMC Jimmy (full-size)
- 1977 CJ-5
- 1993 Toyota 4-Runner
- 1963 CJ3B Willys
- 1999 Dodge Durango
- 2001 Audi S4 (ok.. not a wheeler, but the quattro was great in snow)
- 2004 Chevy Tahoe
- 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser (TRD)
- 2016 Jeep Willys (current vehicle)

Looking forward to reading and writing in the forum.

Cheers,
Vaughn

I'm always on the lookout for fellow wheelers in Maryland, Northern Virginia, Southern PA, and the pan-handle of WV.

Also, I helped start a non-profit off-road club (the FJ Bruisers) about eight years ago.

I tend to wheel at Rausch Creek in PA, Green Ridge state park in MD, Assateague Island, MD, and the Outer Banks. I'm also open to any other local(ish) parks.

Here she is on the morning after I picked her up...



Next... Two days old, and my son and I broke her in proper.



Afterward, my seven year old learned about the responsibility that comes with having fun... Kicked off 2016 with a great "Dad Weekend!"

Welcome! I am in Maryland and head up to Rausch Creek Off Road Park when I get a free chance. We are talking about a March trip.
