• Hands, feet and head must stay INSIDE the vehicle. I don’t care how strong you think you are, you cannot stiff arm your Jeep off a tree. If it’s going to make contact, at least make sure no part of you is in the way.

• Follow all winching. A winch is a powerful tool that requires respect when you use it. Make sure one person is clearly in charge, and responsible to make sure spectators are out of the way in case a mishap occurs.

Safe Jeeping should be a habit that you consciously develop and encourage in others. If you build a foundation of good skills, you will enjoy a lifetime of adventure on the trail and your st aftermarket expenditure will prove to be a good one!
