This is a great set of classes for the new to off-road crowd all the way up to those with lots of experience.


Off-Camber Crawlers does not charge for the class, however The Cove does charge camping/land use fees.

Thanks

should help each other to avoid damage. However some rigs do get damaged.
It's part of driving off-road.

I've seen and driven Jeeps with street tire through some crazy stuff.
That being said, There's alot of rock at The Cove and I'd hate to see a daily driver with split sidewalls.
Your call...

Thanks for the heads up. I think I'll wait until I get some better tires. Getting rock sliders next week, and tires and wheels in a few months, I'm actually going to post a tire question after I post this. Look for it you may be able to assist. I'd also like to look into maybe a membership to the OCC. Your club seems to be close, I'm new to the area, and a new first time jeep owner.
Thanks again
