New YJ owner, want some advice before going off-road
Hey everyone, I'm a jeep newbie, I just bought a 94 wrangler 2.5l a few days ago and I'm of course anxious to take it off-road. What are some things i should check before heading to the trails with it. I wont be doing anything too serious , no rock crawling or anything, just kicking up some dust. I just want to make sure I look over everything so i dont end up getting stranded my first time out. Thanks for yalls help.

Check fluids. Spare tire. And I always have a shovel tow strap tools and my chains and of course my rifle and my binoculars and spotting scope and some food and drinks

The best precautions are a buddy w/ a 4X4 and a tow strap. :D

Then you can drive it hard, find the weak links & fix them before you go solo.

Like he said a buddy is very nice to have. I'm not that lucky to have a friend that has a 4x4 that can go where I do. But even if he rides with u (like my friends ) its a lot better to have someones help. O and I also have warm clothing and my swamp boots haha

Alright cool. Well thanks guys, hopefully I'll be back on Monday with some sweet pics and no posts about how to fix what.... (knock on wood)
