I'm in Peachtree city. Have a '04 Jeep GC, but haven't got it fixed to go wheelin' yet. Have a lot of stuff just waiting on some warm weather and my friends to help install it all. Lookin' forward to getting out there.

Why wait on warm weather? It's not like any of the trails around there are snowed-in. You've got a fairly capable trail vehicle as is, although it certainly can be improved...

As long as your heater works, get out and enjoy the trails!

The best advice to "newbies" is to do easy trails first. Get used to driving the vehicle in 4wd high & low range. Start small and work your way up. This is for you and your jeeps benefit. You will be glad you did. Nothing like getting yourself in a dangerous situation and letting fear make the wrong decision for you. Some people do this and never return to 4 wheelin'.

Just my .02 cents.

Remember............just have fun.

Another piece of advise for the newbies. Decide BEFORE you head out how much damage you're willing to inflict on your rig, and select trails accordingly. Some of us don't care about body damage - it's only sheetmetal, and chicks dig scars. Others, for whatever reason, think that trucks are suposed to be pretty.

From my experience with body damage, I'll say this. It only hurts the first time.

Then, of course, there are those of us who are caught in the middle.... WE don't mind a bit of body damage here and there, but our WIVES think that trucks are supposed to be pretty!
