New to 4x4 in Bham

Ive been doing the rc trucks for almost a year now and decided to graduate to the big boy toys. So I bought a 95 jeep wrangler. All the specs I have are on my profile.

I'm looking for places to start out that are easy like mostly Mudding and small climbs. It needs better shocks and suspension I think before I take on bigger trails plus I need the experience.

Any help is appreciated!

Check out C.A.O.S. They are a club that does ride once a month. Rides are all over central AL. I am planning on joining when I get a few mods done on my Grand Cherokee. Membership is like $75 / year and you have to attend at least 1 (maybe 2) work days per year at the club land down near Auburn I think. They seem like a friendly sort and seem like they would be willing to help noobs learn how to off road. My contact says they do some tech days/swap meet events too.

I really want to join but I work M-Sat with Sunday being my only day off. It wouldn't be fair for me to be at the club rides but not help out on the work days. Hopefully in the future here soon I won't be working 6 days a week and can join up!

Don't fret. They rotate ride days and work days so some months they will fall on Sunday. You can also pay a fee for a missed workday if I read the website correctly.

This is correct. Not all workdays are on Saturday and not all club rides are on Sunday. We switch them up because alot of people DO work on Saturdays.

If you can't/don't want to make the workdays then it's $25 for each one missed ($50 max for your 2 required days).

We have a great group of people. Come check us out sometime.

I wish I could be there but jeep is out of commission until I get this inspection cover back on so I don't mess up my flywheel or clutch. Just found the discontinued part on ebay today so won't be in for about a week or two. I'll keep tabs on the group and see if I can make it soon.

thanks for the invites!
