Off-Road for the First Time
Tonight I got my first chance to see what my TJ was made to do. I was at a friend's property in the woods to make a fire but the weather got rainy and wet and I said, well what better time to get my Jeep muddy.
They were some real basic wide trails, we used to always ride our dirtbikes on them but wow was it fun. I couldn't believe how nice the thing handled over any type of terrain. I was able to climb up and over anything there with a single tire spin. The only problem I had was being in 2 wheel drive and not making it up a hill. I couldn't put in 4wd sitting on the hill so I had to back down it but it wasn't anything steep.
Anyway I am just so thrilled and I had such a great time. I definetely want to do some mild off-roading a lot. I just don't want the branches and stuff scratching up my paint and my windows though, but I did my best to avoid them. Just wanted to tell you guys that I couldn't possibly love this vehicle more after seeing what it actually is capable of. And I barely did anything.
