hit up the guys at cnyjeep.org . pretty good people, and they have quite a few trail rides. they also have about 3 or 4 members with rangers. i was a member until i moved to nc from binghamton, ny. just dont ruin trails or act retarded and they wont scold you, lol. look for a trail ride posting and ask if its ok you join. i know paul (cant remember his screen name) is on here as well.

lol, yeah, no jeep stickers please. you dont have to put one on, lol. you actually have to pay for one if you want it. expect minor ball busting for driving a ford in a jeep club, but just roll with it for a while before you start throwing back jeep jokes... let them get to know you first! lol.
