Thats how I learned. Put the truck in a ditch and you learn fast! lol

Wife just pointed out in regards to the op "tell me where he lives so I don't park near him."

Page 5! Who said we'd stop at 4?

As per the jeep manual, it is recommended that one leaves their jeep in first gear when parked. What would happen if one were to leave their jeep in reverse gear when parked?
