New Wrangler Unlimited

Hey all, yesterday I drove home a new Wrangler Unlimited. I've had my eye on a Wrangler for the last few years and finally saved up enough to go out and get one! The color is Rock Red. I wanted the Orange one, but those are hard to come by it seems... at least with features that I wanted.

I've been reading this message board for about a month, and it helped me better understand just exactly what the Wrangler can do. Thanks for creating this site! I will eventually be looking to go offroad with my Wrangler, but I have never, ever done it, so any advice or suggested beginner spots in New Jersey (or surrounding states) where I can go and get some trail experience with minimal risk to myself or others would be appreciated!

I'll try to post some pictures on here as soon as I get my camera back.

Thanks again for having this great message board and thanks in advance for any responses I get to this post.

Jeff

the pine barrens are a good place to go here in jersey. if you have $250 you can sign up for the pine barrens jamboree. it is May 7th-10th. the hubby and i go every year. the jamboree is a great place for an off-road newb to learn how to wheel. but if the jamboree is out of your budget then you can come out w/ us in june. a bunch of us from the forum have started makeing trips out to Rausch Creek in PA and in June we are going to go down to the pine barrens, for a saturday and sunday of wheeling. check out this thread: June Pine Barrens Trip and cast your vote for which weekend you would like to go. we will be camping and wheeling both days.

Sounds like a fun time and a way for me to learn with some fellow jeepers, unfortunately I am 5 hours away.

Thanks jgano, my jeep is still not where I want it to be. It is still stock with 235 series BFG's. Eventually I will put a 2" BB and a set of 31's, I also chat with a guy who has 2 jeeps. One for his DD and he has an off road one, and he said to join a club or go wheeling for fun you have to have a minimum of 31" tires.

Thanks for the responses everyone. Pinelands would be cool in June. I don't know what weekends I am working right now though so it's difficult to know whether I would be able to make it. And if I can't, at least I'll have some more time to save and buy some extra stuff to help protect the wrangler from getting tooooo dinged up!
