    Aloha from the Big Island of Hawaii,
    We have been running our current 2005 Wrangler Sport since 2007. 32x 11.5 with 3"BDS lift. Helps getting around the beach.

    Picture isn't working, but welcome to the forum!

    Owning a TJ in Hawaii seems like paradise!

    When we have been you see rentals all over the road. Expensive as hell to rent plus you have to sign a waiver to not go off road. Lame.

    Yep, I see the same thing every time we go! What a blast though. The island air and a topless Wrangler!

    I know i sound like a broken record regarding offroading in Hawaii but try Lanai.
    The wife and i spent all week on many different trails in a JK and the rental place actually highly recommend a Jeep.
    My favorite island :)

    Not much there (except beautiful and scenic nature), but it is a gorgeous island!

    Maybe that's the good part about it, that it's mostly untouched by man.

    Wow... Just wow... So envious of you!

    Do you have to watch out for car thief's? I hear there's a lot of car thefts in Hawaii.

    Not too bad, if you have a Honda it might get taken and don't leave any valuables in a rental.

    Great pics. How do tires hold up on that jagged lava rock? I imagine that stuff tears em up pretty quickly.

    Used to run Mud Terrain and you can get some nice chunks taken out. Moved to AT and so far no issues, of course we do take it a bit nicer when on the lava rock.
