First time off-roader

Hello my fellow jeep friends!

I am new to the jeep community. I just bought a 2014 willys wheeler unlimited!! I am beyond excited and I couldn't love my jeep more!

A few questions ..

I am going off roading up in PA on Friday at Rauche creek .. I will be doing the beginners course but if anyone has any tips for me that would be great!!

Also I have the freedom top and the soft top. Anyone who has advice on what cleaning products to use on the hard top and soft top would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks friends!

This resource is a great read for anyone:

Air down those tires, I'm sure others will chime in here but the usual is 12-18psi.

As far as soft-top care, go with Bestop cleaner and protector (sold in kits too). Also I've heard that Marine-grade vinyl products work well too. Bestop is the company that makes the tops for Jeep to install from the factory (if memory serves).

That guide is amazing even for someone with off road experience. I might print it off and keep in my glove box or order a copy.
