Rookie Off roader

Hi everyone,

I opted not to get a wrangler for my first 4x4 but a trailhawk. That sucker did great in snow but I really want to try some backcountry or some trails. Has. anyone in Oregon hit up anywhere cool that's not too difficult to start or any meets? Thanks

Check on Google for Oregon off-road trails, Oregon back roads, etc.. We're planning to head to Idaho in June and Colorado in August and it is amazing what info is available, including trail books you can buy.
I'll have to check out Oregon myself!

@ohldschool ... best place to start active meets are on wranglerforum. you can browse the meets and pick your poison. i'm pretty sure that they will let you tag along.

If nothing else they would let you just to see you fail.. however I believe you may just change some of their minds. I have been in some pretty interesting situations and this little goat pulled through. Better tires next year and I think I will be good.

Welcome to the forums and congrats on the new TH....It will surprise you. Me and BizzyB did a quick trip up in the Mtns here in Colo and it turned out Jeep headquarters were doing a promotional shoot for some Wranglers...They were happy to see us show up in our TH's. Heres some picts. Loch Lomond last weekend

LOL.
That is exactly the most common mindsets for most Wrangler dominated off-road groups. The Trailhawk has a very nasty reputation though for doing way better than any of them expect.

Join the group - show it off - share pics/videos here.
