Hi folks. I'm new to off-roading, but not to my Jeep. We got it about 8 years ago for a family car, the wife has a sedan now to haul the kids around in and the Jeep is paid off. We discussed trading it in for a pickup or even another Jeep, but again it's already paid off, and I kinda like the old girl.
I discovered trail riding by accident really. I was following my gps to a campground in Blackwater River State Forest with my son when it led me down an unnamed two-track trail. I was a tad nervous as I own a RWD (I know, it's gonna be taken care of), but it was an easy trail and we had a blast.
It's a 2002 Grand Cherokee, 4.0L I6, RWD. I have been doing some research and it turns out I can convert it to 4WD for around $1000 and some elbow grease. The wife and i agree that it would be cheaper to do that than to get into another car payment. We'll be PCSing early next year, so that will have to wait a while. Until then, I'm looking for some easy trails my son and I can safely enjoy in a RWD.
2002 Grand Cherokee - 2WD, for now
Zero mods/upgrades, just getting started
