My wheels came out unscathed and these tires did a great job for what I put them through.
Sidewall on the tires is part of ride comfort. Lack of sidewall = lack of comfort in the ride in an already not comfy riding vehicle.

That and it leaves no room to air down off road.

Don't climb any steep muddy or icy hills with large ruts or washouts. It is very easy to have a rear tire fall in the rut and lift the front end off the ground and cause a roll over. Personally seen it twice. WATCH THE RUTS ON HILLS.

Experiment with friends and family.. this is the easiest way to go.. Like we do.. drive 3 hours to a friends farm on the eastern shore of Maryland, Camp out, drive their fields and service roads.. which they typically take tractors or their atv's through.

I just spent the last little while reading this while thread and nobody mentioned keeping your thumbs out of your steering wheel on the trail. When you are in the rocks, or washouts/ruts, if your steering wheel whips around catching your thumb it could bend it right back to your wrist. Hurts like hell...

It is also wise to carry a fire extinguisher in your rig.

Lots of local groups around MA are really the only way to gain access/knowledge of many jeep friendly trails in the area. The group I wheel with is called North Shore Jeeps - lots of friendly guys with every type of jeep from stock TJ's to heavily built JK's and everything in between, we do lots of runs from spring to late fall

http://northshorejeeps.com/

There are also many other MA based groups like Cape Cod Jeeps, Patriot Jeepers, MassKrawlers, Bay State Jeepers, New England 4 wheelers....etc.

Because of the limited number of trails in the new england area and many past and recent trail abuse problems - the only way you're ever going to find the good places to wheel is to join a local club
