Wasn't happy with my new JK Rubicon's performance UNTIL.....

Went to 491 Off Road Park today. Bills491Offroad It was the first time that I've taken my new Rubicon Unlimited off-road. I truly wasn't happy with how it was performing. Many trails I couldn't make it up and then I finally got stuck in a gulley between two steep hills. No matter how hard I tried and how much air I let out of the tires I couldn't make it out of there.

I was on the verge of really getting pissed when I looked down and noticed that I had forgotten to put it in 4 wheel drive!!!! Yes, it was a blonde moment. After that I didn't have a problem anywhere! LMAO!

On the upside. That Jeep went more places in 2 wheel drive than some of the other vehicles there.

I'd be glad to upload pics if someone can tell me how. I've been trying and it keeps failing. The size is correct but it won't upload.

The easiest way is to use an online photo hosting site such as Photobucket then just click the insert image button.
