Are either of the places good for newbies in stock factory lift Jeepers?

I'd love to go out with someone sometime to learn how to ride the trails.

Maybe we need to all meet up and do some trails.

You can probably do bungalows fully stock being that your in a jk. But be warned there's about an 80% chance you will get some scratches. We've tried to clear the trail as much as possible but there's some that just poke out.

Hey I'd be willing to give it a shot. Gotta learn sometime. Better to learn with someone than by yourself.

Let me know next time you're heading up there. I'd like to join you if you don't mind.

You can do this with street tires with some work. The water pits would be questionable tho but if you went after someone you should do fine.

No CB's I do have some old walkie talkies from when I was younger I've been meaning to test out! My friends yj doesn't have a sway bar. And I have home made disconnects but almost never actually disconnect them.
