    Hey folks,

    I was just logging out of Hotmail and I seen this item about how to wheel your grand ma's SUV or something. The idiots writing this and that were the Tech's were suggesting getting off the marked and posted trail and wheel where you feel your vehicle can make it, they don't mention that if you vehicle isn't setup for where you are ALLOWED to wheel, you shouldn't wheel, their answer to the problem... Just tear up some place where there is no trail... WTF!!!!

    Pick Your Own Line
    On off-road trails, it's often tempting to just drive your vehicle on the same tire tracks and ruts as the vehicle that went before you.

    But you should pick your own line, your own path, which will let you and your vehicle pass with minimal difficulty.

    I agree it isn't very clearly worded and may leave some room for confusion. I do think they meant not taking the same line within the confines of the trail. I often straddle the rutted part of the trail rather than drive in the ruts for example. I rarely take the same line through tough spots that my buddy in his YJ does.

    go to msn.com real quick before they change it, its right there "tips on goin 4X4ing". ya its pretty confusing, i didnt see it the same way as you Corey, i rekn they're sayin if you see some ruts made by a set of locked 44inch boggers, it don't mean your independent suspension packing CR-V with P215 BFG land terrains are gonna stroll right through, so try to find an easier route. jus my thinkins

    It sounds like sound advise, to join a club, don't go alone, ect. I do like the link about modifying your suv. The article lists the important stuff, you know, matching luggage, bug shields, ect...
