Thumbs up My jku is no longer a virgin!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally since buying it this past April, we finally was able to go off road for 1st time ever.. us personally and the Jeep

I have a few pics and vids, nothing crazy, as this was my confident building trip to see what this vehicle was capable of

I wanted to go with a group for fellow Jeepers as this was our first time and plus its safer, hence the reason we waited so long. There were 6 other Jeeps along and we all had a blast.

this place was a off road park, it had some mud holes..(been dry), lots of wooden trail, creek beds, mounds and hills , just a bit of everything. I don't know what the ratings would be, but the stuff I drove on was steeper and higher in person compared to the pics.

I used a combo of 4HI and 4LO. No matter where I pointed the nose, that Jeep just did it.. not even a hesitation I was so excited over it, I was in a state of shock. I felt the BLD kick in a few times but never got stuck. Even when I rolled through a nasty hole bout 20-30 long filled with semi-thick mud up to the axles.

Also, we did everything BONE FREAKIN STOCKů Crappy GY SRA, NO airing down, NO sway bar disc. I wanted to see what it can do right from the factory.

Im totally stoked and look forward to more adventures with this amazing piece of machinery PLUS we got 22MPG

Couple of pics of 3 wheel action




LITTLE MUDDY





It was steeper and bigger steps then it looked in the last video

you could manually disconnect your links. it's just a 17/18mm nut. 2 min job.

those are 37's but they actually measure out to 35.5"

Our daughter is the reason for the Jurassic Park sticker on the side and the T-rex skull hanging form the rearview mirror

I had to clean the Jeep to see what damage I had accomplished.

We went through some tight wooded trails and had branches and limbs streaking across the hood, windshield surround, and the b-pillar..glad I wasn't running doors

Very nerve racking

Plus we were at one point in a dry field, came to a ledge and had to get over it, the L/F tire fell into a groove while trying to climb out, it brought the whole Jeep to a dead stop..hard. Backed up, found new footing and climbed out. After getting home and clean, found out the bumper took the brunt of the impact, flexed it back enough that it tore open a small gash at the top backside, close to the mounting point. Didn't cave in the plastic thought.

So that and small scratches that cleaned up with some compound, that was it for damage
