Success! She Loves it!
Today we took the jeep out and broke it in....light rain made it perfect out for this.
My daughter had a blast...I was scared to "scratch" the jeep and she just giggled her butt off the entire time.
We went and ran a trail we used to ride with our quads 7+ years ago...in a jeep it is much slower, not to mention erosion has taken its toll.
We stopped at ALL outlooks....put it in 4L one time to climb a hill that I honestly had no idea how the jeep would do on....with the Polaris we always needed to be in 4x4....in the jeep it was almost a joke how easy it was...she got a kick out of that because I was white knuckling it the whole way.
A very rutted trail going down that got us leaned pretty good was my big worry when coming back out....4H was all that was needed....I can't believe how great these things do!
I am enjoying figuring out what the jeep can do..and shocked at the same time that it does it all w/out blinking.
this trail goes down into a huge canyon and there is a lake at the bottom that we used to go fish for Colorado Cutthroats....we will be doing that again only in the Jeep!
