I know this will seem crazy (at least that's what my mother and a few friends have told me), but I'm really not. I'm just a girl looking to add some fun to her life. I just bought this killer Jeep, but have no idea where to go to start learning what I can do with it. All the mods/specs are listed in my profile. Clearly, I will be the limiting factor; not the Jeep itself! I live in Tuscaloosa and would appreciate ANY advice on a good place to start, what to do, what NOT to do, etc.
Try and get you some good recovery equipment (recovery straps, tree straps, winch line lengthener's, gloves, d-rings/ shackles, high-lift. . . .)
Just start slow and learn the Jeep's capabilities. You will grow in knowledge and skill and will start to get into more and more harder things. Like said above, a good start would be getting in a group/ club that likes the sport and will help you to learn your new vehicles ins and outs. Respect your Jeep, the land and those with you and you're sure to have a great time with that Jeep!
Also, i'm a new member here myself so welcome from another JeepForum newb!

Just now got my internet back...however, that's nothing compared to what all I've seen the last few days. I was very fortunate; just lost power for a few hours and internet until today.
I've been working with a clean-up crew and have been totally overwhelmed at what all I've experienced. There are people who have lost everything, but there are also people who have given everything. On our way out this morning, a guy shows up from Atlanta with the back of his Yukon filled with brand new chain saws, oil, gas cans (already filled up), and a case of water. He said he wanted to do something, so he brought over 6 chain saws for anybody who could use them. That's just one example of the outpouring of concern we've had.
Let me know if you would like to know when we are going.

Nice Jeep . First thing is look up the local off rd club . Google 4x4 club or off rd club will the trick . And then get a CB installed ! very important for group rides . Good luck and have fun
This. A good offroad club will help you with picking out basic recovery stuff and other general things. Its always best to go with a friend who is more familiar so if theres an issue, you aren't completely out of luck. A club is a great source of said friends.
A bad offroad club is the kind that shoots down questions with "google it" and expects you to already know everything
