Jeep 101

NJJC got together and held a 101 class for the newbies. A local dealer let us use their service dept and we lifted a YJ & TJ. After a review of Jeep anatomy, education on trail safety and recommendations on trail tools...19 rigs with a couple of shotgun riders headed out to the trail. Bundled up against single digit temperatures with a brisk wind added, we worked on recovery skills with tow straps and winches. Everyone had a great time & maybe went home a little smarter
got rid of the husband.....bought another Jeep

Awesome! Always nice to see clubs educating their members on safety and recovery!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

That's great that your club did that. We also did something similar to that here in Phoenix over the summer. One of the off road shops lent their lifts to help show how to replace axle shafts, ujoints etc. It was great for some of the less mechanically inclined to be more comfortable on the trail.

101 at Paragon

BMJA will be holding a 101 in April at Paragon.
You don't have to be a member to attend, but it's limited to 50 Jeeps and fills up fast.
This 101 is more oriented towards driving than mechanics. There's also a 201 that teaches recovery on a separate day. Follow the link for more info if you're in the area.

The spring session of Jeep 101 will be held Sunday April 9th at Paragon Adventure Park. This is a basic off-road driving instruction. We'll cover safety procedures for wheeling, proper equipment for your Jeep and different techniques for tackling obstacles. The day starts with a classroom type instruction. You will then be taken on the 101 course to test what you have learned. This will be followed by heading out into the park to traverse some stock trails, to futher enhance your wheeling training. Trail guides will be there to assist with your questions and concerns.
We will begin at 10 a.m. be sure to bring some lunch and something, (non alcoholic) to drink. This is open to anyone with a Jeep, You do not have to be a BMJA member, and is limited to the first 50 vehicles to sign up. Register by emailing

Ours-- You must be in a Jeep.
Paragon's--A full sized spare and at least one tow point.
The cost is $15 for vehicle and driver and $5 per passenger.
