What's your favorite type of wheeling?

whats your favorite type of wheeling? i have a 2001 TJ sport with a 3 inch zone lift and 33x12.50x15's wrangler mt/r's. my favorite type of wheeling is just a mild trail, some small water but nothing big enough to swamp or sink it in. i just like to hit some trails with whoops, hills, and some cool scenery. maybe some sand. but nothing big, just the occasional wheeling that is enjoyable. it is my DD so i dont do anything big and dont plan on it.
I understand thsat my favorite type of wheeling is different then many of yours, but theres nothing wrong with that. Whats your favorite type? is it rocks, sand, extreme, or mild like me?

I'm all about the milder trails, just getting out in the woods and enjoying the nature. However, I am lucky enough to know private land owners that give me access to trails ranging from mild to wild! I did the "wild" trail in torrential rain last weekend and was glad I had a winch! It got me out of a majorly stuck situation. I'm running a BB lift with 31s on my open diff TJ for now that did better than a locked CJ-7 on 33s. Sure I beat the skid plates up a bit and then some, that's what their there for. Going to the mild trail tomorrow, oops, later today to hit some new more challenging hill climbs and hopefully a new mud pit, not deep, just getting it started. We should have videos on YouTube before long, I'll post links.

Rock crawling is really about the only kind of wheeling I enjoy. I'm not into mud at all. I view mud as a means to an end. If I have to go through mud, there had better be some good rock crawling at the other end of it.....
Scenic wheeling is cool too, but once again, there had better be some good crawling at the end. I like the challenge that rock crawling offers. Mud doesn't offer that same challenge to me.

Rocks get my heart all a' twitterin'. The red Jeep is my previous Jeep, the black one is my recent acquisition and there's not any cool pics of it yet. All pics of the red Jeep were taken in Johnson Valley on Sledgehammer and Sun Bonnet. The black Jeep pic was on the Gatekeeper section of John Bull.

^^^^^Holy...!!!


I'm into long walks on the beach...
Here's a sample of the local trail - Trabuco Canyon/Holy Jims. I feel like such a postwhore for posting this everywhere but I'm excited about my GoPro camera and learning the video editing stuff.

I like to cruise though woods and the beach. The beach is about the only time I use four wheel drive. I'm not into mudding or rock crawling. Looks fun but I can't afford it.

I like anything that doesn't have pavement. Love water crossings, but not fond of rides that are completely water logged. Also like some play areas with obstacles where you can have a little fun and test out the limits. Anything with a nice view.

I guess I'll be the first admit...I LOVE MUD

I like rocks too, but my state is a bit limited. We're a bunch of muddy rednecks up here I guess. A few wooded ATV trails with whoops and mud, and 2 large strip mines with muddy and rocky hill climbs.

Got a pretty cool bombed out industrial area that gets technical. Hills, busted concrete, ditches, and a factory with water and busted up walls. Kinda cool. It's wheelin' with urban scenery.

Mud's really all we got. Love it or leave it

Mountain trails first, desert next, beach rides, and anything but mud. If I have to go through it I will but I prefer not to.
