OffRoading with a 5 speed

I am looking to buy a Jeep. They one I am looking at is mostly stock. I am going to be doing more cruising on roads, but would like to take it off road sometimes. Now I heard taking a stock Jeep offroad as long as you dont go to crazy is very doable. Now my question is I know how to drive a stick but have not done it very often. If I were to take it offroad am I going to embarrass myself with the 5speed and have lots of trouble as a more begineer to offroading and not a ton of stick driving experience??

If you can drive a stick you'll be fine, it's all a learning experience anyway. Find a club in your area, fill in your profile so we know, and hang out with them. It is a good idea to go out with others and not alone, you will know what I mean if your out alone and break down.

Don't worry so much about what a stock Jeep can do, it will be able to do more than you can at this point, know what I mean?

Stock jeeps are very capable, as long as you're not looking to go rock climbing or thru 3 ft of mud and water. A little common sense will get you thru most any off road trail.
