I like Broncos because my brother used to go crawl and off-road in NorCal. A few months ago I picked up a ‘95 Eddie Bauer with a 351 and E40D tranny that I’ve been fixing up. I’ve done some light off-roading in Wyoming and Colorado when I lived there but nothing serious.

I’m new to the area and wanting to make friends who like this stuff. Any groups or people nearby?

Other interests include mustangs(got an ‘05 GT), guns, camping, and fishing.

Welcome to the forum and to North GA. I live in North Ga also, just below Chattanooga. Glad to have a FSB neighbor up here.

What part of N Ga are you in?

I live in North east Atlanta.. Suwannee. North Georgia is pretty cool for some outdoors activities. I took a year off after college in 2002 and explored the country. I hiked the Tetons in Wyoming, Rocky mountain national park, and the black canyon of the Gunnison in Colorado. My two favorite parks would have to be Yosemite and Glacier with Olympic a close third. The east coast is still very fun. Our go to camping spot is Lake Lanier with trips to Nantahala in North Carolina 3 or 4 times a year. I have hiked a lot of trails in the area ( most of them with one of my kids in a hiking back pack). Now the boy is 11 and ready to start his 'boot camp" style training... ( he has been on delayed entry since birth). let me know where you are located. I would love to meet up and explore some of the Chattahoochee national forest or do some white water rafting. We have the Chattooga and Oconee rivers that offer some great class 4 white water. I have done both and they ROCK.

Yo ElectricBoogalooBronco,
Welcome!

Was speed control, if equipped recall work completed by dealership? Call local dealer or register and view status @ Welcome to Ford Owner | Official Ford Owner Site; or @ Recalls Look-up by VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) ... have VIN ready.
"Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, PASSENGER VEHICLES, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND MOTOR HOMES CHASSIS, THE SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH MAY, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, LEAK INTERNALLY AND THEN OVERHEAT, SMOKE, OR BURN. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE."
See this guide by jowens1126 to confirm recall status @ 93 & 94-96 Cruise Control Recalls Repair
Note that the 93 recall is different than 94-96.

Hey Paul,
That all sounds good to me. I’m in Brookhaven, so it looks like we are pretty close.
Since I’ve been here I have mostly been up around the AT in Dahlonega and Suches. I definitely need to see more. I picked up a trailhead map of Nantahala last month because I was looking at heading that way too!

Check out the Bartram trail. There is a awesome portion that starts in Franklin North Carolina and goes 12 miles to Wayah bald ( where it intersects with the AT on the top). Massive elevation changes but definitely one of my favorite trails in the east. Not far from Wayah bald you have Nantahala lake. Beautiful lake nestled 3,000 feet up with mountains views all around.



Only a few miles away you have a crazy mountain bike park called Tsali. I have hiked all over the place and it is worth the trip. They alternate horses and bikes on the trails... but allow hikers on either. Trust me and hike the trails that are for Horses on that day. Some of the mountain bike guys are suicidal on the downhills. My brother-in-law rode with a bunch a knuckleheads who would disconnect their back brakes before they headed out. Each had a go pro and they would put in 20$ a piece to see who had the nastiest wipe out video.

Welcome to Georgia. There are a few trails in north Georgia. In the Chattahoochee NF there are a few forest service roads. I forget the name of the road but it goes up Trey mountain is one. The only official trail in north Georgia is Beasley knob OHV near Blairsville. I’ve never been there but looks pretty serious. If you want some cool off-road parks, look in Tennessee or Alabama. I’ve been to adventure off-road park outside Chattanooga and windrock near oak ridge, TN. Both are well worth the trip. There may be some other parks in North or South Carolina, I haven’t looked into it because I’m on the northwest side of Georgia so Tennessee and Alabama are much closer to me.

if you are searching for trails, one tip I’ve found is search google and YouTube for “Jeep” trails. Using that keyword returns more results.

unfortunately my bronco is unavailable right now but I’d be down to ride along if there’s an extra seat available. Just plan a trip and post it up here, I’m sure you could get a few guys to join in.

@Mels @sharpshooter109 yall are nuts lmao. City slickers. Jkjkjk. Tray mtn seems to be closed from what I've seen. OP just go ahead and 60 swap it, lock it on bothends, put a 460 in it and go balls out at windrock. Couple batteries and an axle seal and I guess I could break some more stuff. Course mine hasnt started in 2 years, which is coincidentally as many years as my son has been alive, but whos counting.

Hi all,

I just came across this thread. I’m also in metro Atlanta. Not really into off-reading; I got that out of my system when I was a teenager growing up in Arizona. But I’m a huge gear head and I love wrenching on old cars.

Besides forums like this, what is the best way to meet Bronco people in the wild?

Also, does anyone have a mechanic that they recommend? Electrical is my weakness so if they’re good with circuits that would be ideal (ironic because my Bronco has a carb).

Thanks
Chad

Hi from Sandy Springs ! I’m also newer to Atlanta, moved from Chicago with my wife and kids almost 2yrs ago. Besides my a 4yr old and 1yr old, I’ve got a 1996 Bronco XLT with the 5.8L. I haven’t done much off-roading but I am interested to begin going or sell this beautiful beast to work harder on my fishing skills :)

The above thread seemed to signal some of you were about to get together or meet. If that’s happened, let’s do it again. If not, I’ll give a shot at organizing something - could just just one

About time we all get together for a camping trip. This is my "go to" camp site that is only 12 miles from the house. I hit it up at least 5 times a year. It is part of Lake Lanier islands so if you have kids that want to hit the water park you get discount tickets and a free parking pass to get you through the gate. I'm just throwing this out there to see what we get. It will be family orientated …. but grilling and undercover alcohol consumption is a must. Most sites are lake front access with decent fishing.

Got some family in Royston … the home of Ty cobb. We camp right there at exit 1 in SC.

nice place to live
Sweet - Royston is where I do all of my shopping and such. Its the country life for sure.

I enjoy Sarah's creek and Overflow for camping/trout fishing. Not much of a lake person, but Lake Hartwell has its charms for sure.
