Takeoff in 4L is awesome but can be a little challenging in 4H. But it is something you will need to check. Other than that you will get used to it quickly. It is a fun drive and has some advantages and when you select 4H or 4L you won't grind it in like an auto.|

Only time they can get real tricky is when you are on a hill you couldnt make it to the top of. In those situations a lot of the time it is just having the guts to completely let go of the brakes and let it creep back in 4x4 low. I will never own an automatic. Standards are the best.|

Keep your foot off the clutch. Start with moderate trails and wheel with at least one other rig. Makes the trip more fun and safe. If you have any technical questions, feel free to ask. Very helpful group on here.

I've driven automatics my whole life and recently bought my yj and I have no idea how to offroad in a manual, any tips?
