Hello all

The name is Jim and I'm an off road greenhorn. I feel rather silly posting on a forum about Jeeps especially since I have been driving them for over 40 yrs.

Most if not all of my Jeeps were Wagoneer's, my last one was a 98 Wagoneer which gave up after 255,000 very hard miles. Here's the rub, I never drove any of them off road, and hence I have some very basic questions about off roading in our (thanks to my son) newly acquired 95 YJ.

I want to say thanx for having me aboard.

Howdy, Jim.

Welcome aboard.

Dont fret...not all of us are professional off-roaders. I rarely get the chance to get dirty but sure have fun when I can.

Every step....or I guess every "revolution" is a learning process. No two trails are alike, and no trail is identical the next day. Thats what makes it fun.

Best 5-second soundbite advice I can offer is: Take your time to enjoy the trail. Problems start when you get in a hurry. The Jeep will crawl though some increadible stuff...but if you try to run through that same stuff it might get unpleasant...uncomfortable...and unaffordable real quick.

Happy trails.
