Don't go puffin out your chest. In mud like that, I'm sure they'll return the favor one day.

One more variable that cant been seen with pictures is the DRIVER. Just because you bought a nice shinny new jeep and passed you state's drivers license test does not make you qualified to takle every mud hole or trail out there.

I agree with FJ Marine, a poor driver in a great vehicle will get themselves in trouble.

the best way to learn though is for the worst to go wrong :D
True

Ok, story time.

I finished recruiters school in June of 06 and was one of 4 recruiters to get orders to Recruiting Station Nashville, TN. We were all assigned to different offices through out the state. One ended up in Oak Ridge just outside of Knoxville. While this young Marine, I think he was like 23 or 24, was on leave he leased a brand new Rubicon. Yup, I said leased........ In an attempt to get to know and bond with the recruiters at his new office they all went wheeling on some local trails. I thin we all know where ths is going, lol. Young guy trying to fit in......... 3 other Marine egging him on. Anyways, he ended up burying the Jeep up to the windshield in a mud hole. Took 2 trucks to pull him out and the guys that pulled him out were nice enough to inform him that the hole they hit was only used for mud bog drag racers, lol. 7K worth of damage to a leased vehicle later and I guess he learned his tought lesson, lol. :bigthumb:
