Newbie - need help getting started

Im fairly new to the off-road seen (with 4wd vehicles at least) and want to learn as much as I can, as I like to research things and get a good grip on them before I go out and do them. I have a good gauge on what I think I'd be good at and I learn very quickly. Although they might not seem obvious, I come from a background of sports and activities that share the same characteristic as off-roading does. Like piloting, downhill mnt biking, and sailing. I do a lot of off-roading with friends in the pine barrens in NJ and Everglades in Florida and try to learn as much as possible from them. I'm getting a wrangler soon but I want to pretend like I'm completely ignorant to the the sport and get any advice, tips, equipment etc. from you guys that have much more experience . I'm an off-road kinda dude and most likely will become better at it. But I want to gain as much experience as I can first before I take it to the next level. Hope this makes sense. Any help is greatly appreciated .

As a start i would see if there are any 4wd clubs in your area.. go to a few meeting, meet some folks and go back to the one you like best.

U can read and learn a lot. Hut putting the time in on the trails etc is the only way. Rausch creek offers a beginners course 101 that would be good for you
