My 4×4 101 – January 21, 2017


Out of stock


A class that will teach you all the basics you need to know about your Jeep and 4×4.

So you got a jeep, or another 4×4 and you are ready to go play, but how do you prepare your ride for a weekend of splashing in the mud or bouncing on a rocky road? Forums take a long time to read, and while everyone on the forums is well intentioned, they usually can only tell you about their particular vehicle, products they they tried, and give their sometimes bias opinion because thats all they are familiar with. This is your chance to talk to the pros that have 4x4s of all breeds and with all kids of modifications going in and out of the shop all day, everyday.  We are prepared to answer any questions from how to change a tire to how to build your ride to compete inin some of the toughest races in the world.

Some of the topics will include:
What should I equip my Jeep with for the weekend? The week?
How to mechanically inspect and prepare my Jeep to go trail riding?
We will go over some of the common breaks that happen on the trail and how to get home.
What’s the correct air pressure to air down to and why? Is it different for different terrain?
What are bead locks?
How to re seat the tire on the bead.
How to repair a puncture in the tire.
How to ensure you can get back into 2wd hi if nothing happens when you pull the 4wd lever.
What are sway bars and why should I disconnect them?
What’s the proper line to drive when I’m off-roading?
I see people use an awful lot of wheel speed to make a climb, do I have to do that?
What are…insert anything you could possibly want to know about your vehicle… and why is it important?
How does my winch work? Am I doing it right?
What’s a hi-lift and why does everyone have them?
What are the next mods I should to do my Jeep?
We will also go over a full winching session and how to properly use all of your equipment.  What equipment?!?!
