What I consider "real wheeling" would be going somewhere that is Legal and testing your rig . Rocks, Mud, Sand, Snow, Hill climbs Whatever is your style of wheeling as long as its Legal its "Real Wheeling" in my opinion

I personally like rocks.

I think Real Wheeling is when your crawling up a rock you didn't think you could, then you start to slip, cause you have nothing locked, and your wife thinks you ganna roll, then you back up a little, and crawl right up

And in general any time your up there flexin and doin things that push limits. ITS A BLAST!

When you push your vehicle past your own limits and make it.

I remember going on this trail with my bone stock TJ, my first off road ride on it, and I sure thought I wouldn't go over this long steep wall of large loose, sharp rocks. It took me three tries to make it to the top, but when I got there I had pushed the envelope with my stock TJ. That's when I fell in love with it and started modding it to push it even further.

Someone said it earlier here...and it is the perfect description

When your heart stops for a second, your stomach sinks, inside your head you go "oh ****!", which means either something did break (now your REALLY wheelin) or you make it through because of skill/your in a jeep.

Real Wheeling is when you use what you built (or bought) and go and have fun.

From Jeep, "Have Fun Out There"

doesnt have to be damaging or illegal...just fun

That's why there is so much of an issue with trespassing and destruction of property and people are protective of their land. And there's not as much wide open territory in the middle and eastern states.
You own the land. In the West, most "wheeling" areas are public lands, administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) or the U.S. Forest Service. The lands are "owned" by the Federal Government, meaning U.S. citizens. Something like 80% of the State of Nevada is wide open BLM administered land. Just go out and hit the trail, no pay.

BLM land near my home in Eastern California close to the Nevada border...

Real Wheelin to me is when your experience exceeds your bragging. When you actually go drive somewhere instead of talking about all the cool things you're going to do, or how much better your rig is then someone else's.

I moved from Indiana where it's Badlands 5 times a summer until you're just sick to death of the same trails to Colorado where Telluride, Moab and countless amounts of BLM are my backyard. Funny thing, I've found more people who yap about how great their s#!t is but won't hook up to run a dirt road out here then I ever did in Indiana.

That's why the west is so awesome. There is no such thing around here (lower michigan). "Wheeling" is paying to drive in circles on some over-used, muddy, 100 acres (at most).

That picture is amazing.

It is great out here! In my picture above it shows the beginning of a trail that continues on back some 25 miles into the mountains leading to some great primitive campsites, and trout fishing, at the base of the 14,000' peaks in the picture below:
