Just got my first jeep and new to the forum

Hey guys what's up I'm Rob I just got my first jeep its an 03 rubicon needless to say I am pretty stoked about it as well as all the plans of the build I want to do. I live in forest grove so I am really close to TSF any body know any good easy to medium trails don't want to do anything to crazy since she is stock sitting on 30.5 x 9.5 R16's but hey it's a jeep and a rubi at that so I am pretty confident I can get along ok. Look forward to meeting every one and thanks for the help in advance.

Ps and since I am a newbie always looking for and appreciate on people's opinions on what my first step in the build should be and what exact parts u recommend

Hello and welcome to the Forum, You find a lot of great idea's on this site for your 03' and their are many trails at TSF that you can run on just as you are now. It just depends on your skill level as a driver, it is always safer to go with a buddy just in case you get in a position that an extra rig can help with a strap or a winch. We have a group of Wrangler owners that hold many events at TSF along with other places in SW Washington and NW Oregon and usually there is always someone in the group that is inching to run down there for the day just to wheel but can't find a buddy to run with. You are more than welcome to check out our group at: SW Washington & NW Oregon Group and attend any of our meetings or events. We are just a group of Wrangler owners that enjoy each others company and enjoy doing things together. If you have any questions, PM myself or n2jeepn and we can tell you more about our group.

Hey guys thanks a lot and that just got done installing a winch and new stereo today so jeep looks and sounds better and the newbie run sounds great and as to my skill as a driver I used to be fast in the quarter in my mustang, and rode a street bike way to fast but some how I don't think that will translate oh well

I normally lead the advance groups on the more difficult trails. When you get alittle taller or want to try them git me up.

Jeeping is a thrill ride for sure, but not a fast one
