I'm from Springfield and there are quite a few guys around here. Check out wm4x4.com That's a local club that has member runs on a fairly regular basis. There is also Newenglandjeepz.org & neow.net
I've got a TJ I'm building up. You can PM me for contact info if you want.

Hey I'm in Amherst also new to the truck thing but have been building cars for years now. I am building a yota now if you want to hang out some time, go wheeling or have a few beers and work on something I am always game.

I am not in any club, but am in the area. Lot's of decent guys around here. Some good wheeling, like up in northern MA/ Florida road area. If you see a big ugly guy in this jeep, dont hesitate to say Hi.

Some pretty good wheeling up there. Though, I am sure it has changed a bit since I last went years ago.

Cool Grand Cherokee. Yes, I live in Wilbraham on Main Street. Constantly driving all over the place. Busy, busy.

Trying to get my garage shop up and running atm for the spring itch. Putting together a CJ7 for my wife as a DD. Know anyone in the area looking to get rid of some axles for CJ (setup: carb 350, SM465, NP205 Pass drop, 33" tires)? Pref 4.10 gears. Otherwise I am going to narrow some.
