Did I tell you about all the times I've left my house on the dirt bike and ridden for several hours into the woods without seeing a single other person?

To me real wheeling = low range, locked, as few as 2 tires on terra firma at any given time, having to think 2 or 3 obstacles ahead of the one your currently negotiating, and of course pucker factor.

Essentially needing 4WD on something a little more difficult to traverse than a washed out dirt road.

Wheeling to work would be stressful under those conditions.

To me it is just getting the heck out of Dodge, whether it's the desert or the mountains, rocks or mud. Just get out there and get dirty, break something and laugh about it. My buddy thinks he needs every accesory on his Jeep to enjoy it and I enjoy making him look like a ******. Good times

No pavement, 4wd is a necessity, obvious possibility of getting stuck/damaged/ or broken, and getting home wondering what to buy for your rig next.

a real jeep is one that will drive you hundreds of miles to the trail, take all the hell you can give it, break nothing important, drive you home, then bring you to work the next day.

real wheeling includes being on the edge of getting stuck, wether in rocks, boulders, or mud, but almost always you will pull through.

Wheeling over terrain that actually requires 4x4 to get through, not just that you have put your Jeep into 4x4.

^^ Lucky
in texas i have to pay here in colorado i dont but i have no one to go with so im stuck not going. although yesterday i found to my surprise an XJ on 33s parked next my jeep. ill have figure out whos it is so that i have a wheelin buddy.

wheeling to me would be getting out and being with friends, having to use 4x4, pucker factor, a couple tries to get past the obsticle, someone breaks something, figuring out how to temp fix it till we get back into town

Why do you have to go out and break things to be "wheeling?" Just get out there in the woods or wherever you wheel and chill out. Get away from work and stress, sometimes even the family.

Why do you have to be getting stuck and using 4lo to be wheeling? I've had just as much fun wheeling trails in 2wd and finding ghost towns and abandoned mines as I have had rock crawling, and there are fewer broken things wrong afterwards which means more money for mods instead of replacing broken ****.
