I now realize Wranglers are better at offroading then my Escort

Just saying Hi from New England! I just got my 03 Wrangler and just waiting for money to do mods. I got it for exploring trails i couldn't get thru with my Ford Escort. Its much easier with AWD and something thats not an american sedan. lol

And the moment you've all been waiting for here is my Jeep.

And this is why I got it.

Offroading Escorts could be interesting. Took my Tempo off the pavement a few times. Didn't want too but it was all I had to drive.

Welcome to WF!

I like it when people take vehicles off road that they shouldn't. My jeep likes the practice of pulling them out.

I'd really like to see someone do some hardcore offroading in a brand new Lexus.

I did some off road stunts in a 74 Hornet years ago, until the radiator got snagged back through the fan by the trans cooler lines. Things got ugly, but I still drove it home.

My escort was actually really good off roading it went thru some serious puddles and mud and could go anywhere in this area it could fit. It was actually good at sneaking down 4 wheeler trails. However those usually end in peoples backyard. They look at you confused from their back porch as you turn around on their lawn.
