Lessons Learned

I made this thread on another forum and it was a damn good (and sometimes funny one). Post up lessons you have personally learned while wheeling. I learned that when my buddy is standing up int he back of the jeep playing annoying rap music on his cell phone, I can either turn up my stereo and drown him out or head for the nearest low hanging branch and damn near knock him unconcious.



So post up what you've learned. I have more I will add later.

I think I have a classic. If you break a tie-rod on an H2 in 2003 don’t post the video on the interweb or it will become infamous

When youre wheeling w/ the same guy I knocked down w/ the tree and he says "go left man, it looks better." Dont listen to him. Or at least make sure you have a winch and a CB if you listen to him.

Don't push the clutch in at the top of a tall hill before you crest...no matter what you're thinking.

When out mudding in Florida, don't listen to the girl when she says "you should swing out there in the bog where the chevy on 44"s is stuck....."
No matter HOW hot she is.

I'm too lazy to search for it, but I think there is already a thread with lessons learned on the trail given - maybe these 2 can be merged??

I've learned that: when waiting for the rest of the group to get there, don't go wandering off and try that new trail you think you saw by yourself. It's a good way to: eat a fender, crack your hard top, and do some body damage.

Or, shortly after the same experience, if you're in an uncontrolled sideways slide down a muddy hill quickly approaching a 4' drop into 3' of water, the chances are that the group you're waiting on is just on the other side of the next hill wondering where you are. And nobody can hear you scream =)

Not my personal lesson...

I learned that a stock TJ on 31s and no lift can clear a mud hole that a JK w/ 3" skyjacker and 35s cant clear when that JK has a CAI sucking water into the engine!

Lucky for him, his insurance agreed to replace his engine.

CAI + Standing water/mud = problems.

I learned, don't take your significant other with you down a trail that has a huge drop off on her side of the jeep, especially when she's scared to death of heights! She just about ripped my "oh, ****!" bar off the dash. She wan't very happy with me. I told her she could get out, just watch the first step, its a doosey That was the second thing I learned... keep your mouth shut when they're already upset with you

Yeah I learned that my wife, who I always thought of as pretty rugged given our camping and grateful dead touring past, is pretty foo foo when it comes to mud being slung all over her lol.

always use the buddy system.. let him or her go first...then you will have enough time to figure out if you want to try it..and remember when they say dont worry it will buff out,it never does...

Going last through a mudhole sucks, especially when your buddies have 42Ēs. Deep ruts arenít cool with a stock Jeep. I learned that on one of the first trips out with my new rubi. Oh, and not having a CB to call for help when they leave you behind. Good thing I had a winch.
