Found these on youtube and thought they would be useful for new and veteran Jeep owners alike.
Off-Road Tips and Techniques
The first thing you need to know about off-roading is to "Tread Lightly" - make very little impact on the environment. Don't leave trash or anything behind and make sure to pick up any trash other people left behind. Stay on the Trail - because damaged & trashed trails give all 4x4's a bad name and give people a reason to close a trail. Then noone is happy.

John Rich has a video on youtube that has been posted on this forum numerous times that has helped me in the past to strap up a vehicle for recovery.
While this is good is still doesn't really show me what I can do with a winch. So I went out on the prowl to find some suitable videos that where actually enlightening and taught me something. And I think I found them, if these have already been posted sorry, I couldn't find them.
These videos talk about the correct basic recovery kits to have, whats good and what's bad and what to look out for. Talks about hand signals and general winch safety and what to look out for. It also covers differences in electric, hydraulic, and industrial winches. And then they go on for several parts showing basic winching, 2 line winching(moving pulley), sideways winch, dual winch etc. It's put out by a group of guys called Badlands Off-road Adventures and I found them pretty informative and helpful, hopefully a few other Jeepers will appreciate these videos like I did.
So for all the other newbies out there, and for some of the old timers wanting to maybe brush up here they are!
i wave at dog walkers and pink vw bugs and michelle pfeiffer look-a-likes and folks dressed like harry potter and two person bikes and pissed off squirrels and butterflys and day lilies and jump ropers and hobos with shotguns but there is no way in hell i will wave at a liberty. that's just gay.
i leave a small note letting people know that there jerks for letting me be the one to clean up there trash for them..it dosent work tho,,they still leave there trash as if they know me or someone else will clean it up..im used to it..
