!st time wheeling with Jeep,5sp,question

Im going away this w-end to do some off roading & was wondering should I be engaging/disingaging the clutch when going slow even though the engine is bogging down? Ive got 32's & to go real slow w/o pushing in the clutch it bogs/chugs some.I just dont want to burn up my clutch.Its fairly new.

I keep my in 4lo and 2nd gear in most of the trails I ride(a good slow creep speed). RPMs is always over 1100, and I also run 32" tires. I hardly ever step on my clutch (pending the terrain)

If ur bogging down, I would keep it in 4lo the whole time. It's very hard to get bogged when in 4 Lo, I barely even use the gas, just let the clutch out and jeep will just crawl.

U should never have ur engine sound or get bogged. That's a lot of strain on a lot if parts !
