My idea of "Real Wheeling" is similar to some other posts, but with a twist...

Trying something you believe your vehicle is NOT capable of, something that you are almost positive you can't overcome, something that you are almost sure will smash against a skid, bend a control arm mount, leave you high-centered awaiting rescue... "Real Wheeling" is at the very least attempting that obsticle; overcoming it is succeeding that obsticle.

It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top.

When you "wear" your rig instead of driving it. Like a pilot wears a plane.

Weird how it happens, one day you're all gas and go in the local mudpit and then something happens and you're technically working over some bigass boulder you never thought you could drive around, much less over. Wearing the rig.

That was my choice.

A real jeep has flat fenders, Cj, YJ, TJ.

I guess you can classify an xj as a real jeep and the FSJ's and the Zj's.

Needs to have solid axles.

I would say that real wheeling requires 4x4. Not just putting it in 4x4 because your on a dirt road, but because you can't advance your position in 2wd.

Real wheeling can not be defined by others. It is something that you know deep inside yourself when you do it. The very idea of letting someone else define what wheeling is ,goes against the independent Jeepers code. We dont need no stinking definitions

At least two-thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity: idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religous or political ideas.

I see it like ski resorts...an established park can offer awesome terrain and great trails, an awesome experience...but there's just something about being in the backcountry.

Just wondering who "owns" the land your wheeling on? As the other guys have said it's strange for us NOT to have to pay to ride in most places. I could go mudding in all kinds of places,, as long as I didn't get caught,,, because then it's trespassing and destruction of private property and gives us a bad name. Even some of the public land is controlled by a forestry department and you pay to ride but the money goes to land management and upkeep of the trails. The fees are usually not much, $10-30 a day or weekend but most of the time we DO pay or risk using private property.

That sux, there are roads and trails all over Az, that are not closed to the public. I couldn't imagine paying money to go out in pubic land, it seems absurd. There are forestry roads, service roads (for power lines), and just old roads out all over the place in the mountains and desert around here. You can drive wherever you want when you want w/o paying for crap. I even take my guns with me and I can go shooting! So long as I'm a mile away from a paved road. Thats just me though, and where I grew up. Basically the rangers/sheriffs out here don't give a crap so long as you are not making your own road w/ your vehicle, or doing stupid **** like leaving trash or starting bone fires lol.
