Welcome

Got the 2010 ranger . I love it as well . So far so good , having an issue with the drivers window though as it seems to stutter when it goes up and down . May have to have it checked out . 12 K on it but it runs great so far ....

Nice, prices may be higher in that area - I don't know anything about the houses there. The area I was talking about is 8 miles away on Oakwood Drive, I don't think there are any 1 acre properties, but you might want to check that out as well.

Wherever you do decide to live, just make sure that there are side roads nearby the house that can get you around Rt 537 and 526 (I think) in the areas of Great Adventure and the outlets. It can get really congested when Great Adventure is open and the holiday time.

i will def check that area out too... not sure if you have kids, but how's the school district around there?

Didn't think of the Holidays!!! I know Great Adventure traffic would suck, but i didn't think of the congested outlet traffic during xmas. Thanks for the tip, i know Jackson is huge and i'm still trying to figure out the easiest and fastest route to get there from North NJ. I know Rt. 9 is more direct, but lots of lights... Parkway/Turnpike is a bit faster, but then you need to cut across 195... I can't win. LOL

We have dogs and horses... for kids, so they're home schooled. The Jackson school district is supposed to be very good from what I've heard through my neighbors.

195 is no big deal, usually you never hit any traffic on that road - the turnpike on the other hand can be hit or miss. I work up in East Brunswick, so I travel Rt 537 to Rt 9 to Rt 18 every day. That route is slower, but it only takes 5-10 more minutes than using 195 and the turnpike because it is a more direct route. There are a lot of county roads that will help you to avoid the highways, I use Rt 527 on my way home most of the time to avoid the congestion of Rt 9 and 18.
