    Talking Silverback



    Howdy all!

    I am a recent convert to 4x4 (Jeep specifically for me) and have fallen in love with the ultimate pragmatic aspect of being able to take this vehicle damn near anywhere.

    My neighbor took me out shortly after I bought my jeep last month and put me through a bootcamp that left me processing everything we did and he taught me for a day and a half. We bounded up hills, over rocks, through deep snows, I towed and was towed, I left my mirror cover on Yankee hill, met other 4x4ers, aired down and back up, and a gaumet of other things that all led me to a real sense of confidence in my vehicle and in me. And a huge shopping list for all the things I need!

    So the build commences on the Silverback (my Jeep) and my focus is more on the expedition/overlanding aspects long term and want as much trail time as I can get to better understand the right build for me. I usually have a seat open as well; always open to learn new things!

    SO EXCITED

    YAY

    Jesse

    Temp tags + Wheel'n = the right attitude

    Get a kick out of the "mud on pavement" that happens under every trail jeep after sitting through a rain.

    Thanks for the offer; I'm out of town until the 3rd and then I'm down to wheel! I should have mentioned that in my original post.

    YAY

    Thanks! I couldn't wait to get dirt on it. I am a firm believer in driving how it was supposed to be driven. My last car was a mini and I will not talk about my speeding tickets

    Welcome and nice new Jeep! You will want better off road tires as those stock tires will blow a sidewalk pretty easy (happened to a stock JK on a trail I was on with him last week). That said, these Jeeps can and will go just about anywhere! I know Im addicted.....
