Beginner to both jeeping and driving manual.

Hi people. I recently purchased a 2011 jeep wrangler with a manual transmission and am looking to find some tips for towing and getting unstuck (first timer driving manual). Might be using poor search words but I would appreciate some assistance to locate threads on such topics. I have gone mudding once so far and struggled to get unstuck, burned my clutch a bit and stalled a few times. Any tips or direction would be amazing. Thanks and look forward to getting familiar with this community!

Finesse is important. There are exceptions but normally don't try to blast your way out of a situation. Use the minimum amount of power.

Avoid going out alone. Getting stuck is a real possibility, especially when you are beginning. I don't know where you are located, but in some areas there are offroading clubs, or even business that provide training. Often there are organized groups which would be a good idea.

Also search youtube for videos on trail techniques.
