I know this is a forum for atv riding areas but I want to know if anyone out there knows of places to drive jeeps. About a year ago my brother put a lot of money into his jeep and after a month of spending all this money the only off road place we knew of closed down. If anyone knows were trails for trucks could be either in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, please tell me any info you know.

Hi, I live in Northeastern Pa. The area I ride my atv is shared with jeeps and all kinds of 4x4 vehicles. It's called Campbell's Ledge. There is probably around 100-120 miles of trails to explore with some really challenging terrain. It's five minutes from my house and I ride there all the time and I'm sure I haven't found all the trails yet. There are some really breath taking views from the tops of 3 mountains and excellent bass fishing in a swamp area and two huge reservoirs. I'm 45 minutes south of Binghamton, NY, and around 1 hr from the eastern NJ border. Not hard to get to. If you'd like to hear more about it let me know.

The great thing is that it is free. It is not a park specifically designed for atv and 4x4 riding. It is just a rural area where people have been 4x4ing with their vehicles from what I understand for around 20-25years. Nobody ever bothers you. If you meet someone they will be friendly and probably offer you a beer. Its near small towns where most of the off duty police do the same. The trails are all over, you just have to explore and explore to find them. There are mountaintops with amazing views looking over the Wyoming Valley and Susquehanna River, creeks to cross and a 150 ft. waterfall (really hard to find, I don't even know if I could explain how to find it). Like I said, I've been riding there for years and haven't found all the trails yet. I've met the owner of the land in the forests up there a few times and all he asks is that no one litters or gets hurt. You're good to need a good 6-8 hours to spare cuz you will need the time to explore and find some really cool areas.

No problem. Mapquest will get you close, but you will need specific directions as to how to get on the trails and I can tell you basically how to get around on them. It's really not hard to get there off Interstate 81. Just e-mail me at [email protected] or I will periodically check this thread to see when you need directions. Maybe I can even get out on my quad and show you around. What kind of terrain do you like to drive on with the jeep?

Hi Roody, I'm green08bigbear from that other site. The place is great for quads. You will need a lot of time there to find all the trails. There's everything you want for riding your quad. Tight trails, technical stuff, creeks, rivers. There's even an old coal breaker area that is great for jumping and climbing steep coal hills. And Outlander, it's off of a side road and once your on the trails you can get pretty far away from the road. Its hard to see all the trails on google maps but there all around those reservoirs and swamps.

I am comming from eastern NY and would like to stay overnight.

Is there any motels/camping and can you ride the Quad from the motel / campsite to the trails?

where is the best trail head ,are there many trailheads?

it sounds like there are miles and miles of trails, is there any place you can not go?

can you fish and camp on the reservoir ?

Thanks

John

      Anyone using the AtV/Motorcycle lift from Harbor Freight? I like the idea of having something other than jack stands. Is there another option that I should look into?

      Hi there!
      We just bought 4 acres and needed a work rig for moving stuff around and blazing trails. Been looking at buying a quad for a long time and finally got the opportunity.  Found a very good condition 1994 Kawi Bayou 300 4x4.  Runs great and seems to be in great operating condition with one little thing.
      The unit seems to have an issue with reverse.  Previous owner did tell me about it and its totally usable but the issue is annoying enough that I want to try and fix it.  Im pretty mechanical oriented so don’t think this will (hopefully) be too much of an issue.  I bought the kawasaki shop manual on ebay and should be here next Friday but wanted to get a head start on it.
       
      The issue seems to be similar to this post but I think may be more mechanical than just the switch.
      https://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/topic/14281-1994-bayou-220-neutral-safety-switch/
       
      Here goes!
       
      Neutral light is always on when key in on position I found that the green wire coming out of the block from neutral switch is grounded to chassis.  When plugged in to switch light never turns on no matter what gear its in (and wont start). Machine can go from 1st directly into Reverse if you don’t feather it.  This is the part that that makes me want to fix it.  I feel like its dangerous and could possibly do some damage.  It usually takes 3-4 tries to 'find' neutral.   The reverse turn knob seems to be operable and cable is connected and operates the reverse 'selector' when turned.  Springs back when released both at the switch and at the 'selector' inboard of the shifter. When in reverse the red reverse light does not illuminate Based on above and looking at the post above it seems that this would indicate that the reverse stopper is 'broken' and rotated in an 'in gear' position.  I see a few posts on here where people have said it can crack.  If I plug the green wire back in and turn machine to 'on' I can move the shifter through all gears and the neutral light and reverse light stay off.  Again, to me it seems that the 'reverse stopper' is probably broken, stuck where the switch thinks its in a forward gear and the shaft is probably just spinning inside it.
       
      Am I on the right track here?
      I wanted to get a head start on this and looking at parts diagrams it looks like the part number for the 'reverse stopper' is 13091-1443, found one on ebay for $30 shipped.  I hate buying parts before tearing it down but if this is the likely culprit I would take a $30 gamble to buy it so I can have it on hand when the manual arrives.
       
      The other question I have which I hope is an easy answer is none of the parts diagrams I have found show the bevel gear gasket part number.  Can anyone tell me what the part number is for this?
       
      Many, many thanks for the info and I promise to post pics once I have it apart.

      So, I just bought this quad off a acquaintance of mine… anyways, it’s missing the airbox which I’m trying to purchase if I could only figure out the year and what model of lt230 it is due to having only 9 visible digits for a vin…guy said he had the title at one point and lost it when he moved houses after the flood of 08 in Iowa….I just desperately need to know what model this thing is so I can start getting to work on it….it does run after a good carb cleaning….I’m having trouble getting it to idle though due to essentially just having a rigged up air filter with no airbox on the bike…I’ve sanded down the plastics and it looks like the original color was orange and the seat I believe is either from a different Suzuki or it’s been painted gold and black? The plastic nose part is originally black…it has the lever for reverse by the sprocket it has a pull string to start and I think originally it has electric start as well….idk I’ve had to bypass and use a screwdriver on the starter Solenoid to get it to start …someone has definitely done some rigging with the wiring as well.but if anyone has any clue what I need to look for to identify the year and actual model so I can get the right stuff. I’d appreciate it.
