just got it, just wrecked it.

Hello all,

New jeeper here, I just got my 2013 three weeks ago, and took it mudding in the rain today, and slid backwards down a muddy hill into a tree smashing the tailgate.

Oh well, first of many, I suspect.

Sorry about the bummed tailgate, but look on the bright side, at least you customized it while doing what it was meant to do. I almost held the record though. The dealership where I purchased mine has a Braums in the adjacent parking lot, and my wife insisted on wielding a hot fudge sundae in it before we had driven even 300 yards. As I came out of the drive thru, someone blew around the corner. Luckily we screeched to a halt within a few inches of each other. I was not so lucky on the interior with the sundae.

Said I never had much use for one. Never said I didn't know how to use one.

Hey, it is what it is. I had a jeep full of 8 year old boys and we were all whooting and laughing, I can't get to mad. as of right now its still stuck over the hill, I got two tractors stuck and broke two chains trying to get it out.
Hope it drys out tomorrow.
