Very green in a new red Rubicon

Ever since the 4-dr came out in 07, I have wanted one, and now I got it, an '11 Rubi. I just bought it and am looking to start learning the ropes. I got the dual top since I love open air riding, and I am having a ball with that already (although installing the soft top was a royal pain!). Looking to start some mild rock climbing, but I have NO off-road experience. Need to figure out how to learn without doing something stupid and hurting my Rubi or its passengers!

Welcome to the Forum. Sounds like your going to have a lot of fun. Do it like I did, start slow with the off-roading and work your way up.
By the way we need pictures!!!

Rock Climbing means you should probably make sure your protected.. IE Rocker protection and Skid Plates.. Just a heads up

Welcome! I think you will be surprised at what a stock rig can do! Remember to not go out alone!

Welcome to the Forum. Check out some of your local jeep clubs. This is a great way to get started in off-roading and learn the tricks. You can probably find one or two listed in the AZ section of this forum. They usually have runs for inexperienced drivers.
