getting started around Philly

Right now I've got a stock 2013 JKUS with the wimpy 29" tires, 3.73 gears, limited slip diff, and manual transmission. What's the best way to get started? Is there a beginner class around, or should I just come out with some of you and give it a try some day?

What equipment will I need to begin? The lift, bigger wheels, and installed CB will probably come eventually, but I'd like to get a feel for what it's like before I start spending money.

Come on out and wheel. Wharton is your best bet for free legal wheelin, as long as you're street legal. Rausch creek is an off road park maybe an hour away and they have off road 101 runs. Buy yourself a recovery strap before you head out anywhere though

Where can you wheel in Conshy? I lived there for a couple of years, and can't think of a place to go.

Yeah, would love to go wheelin' in Conshy. Exactly where do you all go? I was always wondering about that area for Jeepin'.
