Hello everyone. Thought I would introduce myself. I bought my first jeep a few months ago. it is a 2012 Wrangler JKU Rubicon. I am not sure what size lift it has as I bought it used. It does have 33" tires, a LED light bar(which I am not a fan of currently) and 2 LED spot lights on the bottom corners of the windshield. Other that a stubby antenna I added it is pretty stock.

 

I have been looking to get out on the trails. I have zero off road time so I am wanting to learn some things and get together with people who are willing to show me how it's done. So far I have had no luck anywhere so I thought I would jump in here. Are there "schools" (Probably dumb to ask but I read somewhere there may be) to learn the basics of off-roading or is it get out and run around?

Welcome to the site. Do some runs with us and you will learn fast. A good 12v air pump and tire deflators are a must have when running trails.

welcome to the site! you have a great setup to start learning with - capable, but shouldn't get you in over your head.

 

there are in fact training places, Nena Barlow of Sedona Jeep school is an excellent instructor.

 

...nothing beats seat-time on the trails though.

 

as soon as the weather cools off a bit i'm sure you'll see some easier runs posted here that will be perfect to get your feet wet on!

Thanks, still convincing my CEO(aka Wife :D ) to let me buy stuff. I am looking forward to getting out. I signed up for a run in September so I am looking forward to that. Can you recommend a air pump that works good for 33" tires?

Thanks for the link! I will definitely check out Barlows. That along with seat time I should get more comfortable.

the bigger Smittybilt compressor is probably still the best bang for your buck - it's darn quick even on larger tires.

 

just make sure you get something that hooks directly to the battery instead of a cigarette lighter plug.

Hi there and :welcome:

 

That's a nice looking rig you've got, there! I agree, seat time is the best teacher, but Jeep school is cool too, for learning the basics. Looking forward to seeing you out on the trails!
