Things to check before wheeling:
It's very important to give your Jeep a once over before taking it out to beat on it. Leave the house with a sloppy U-joint, and it will blow apart on the trail, and usually at the worst possible time. Check your lug nuts, tire pressure, U-joints, steering system, and all your fluids. Give your suspension bolts and bushings a once over too. This only takes a few quick seconds to double check things, you'd much rather replace things in your driveway rather than on the trail. Make sure you check these things again when you get back, as wheeling does take its toll on things.
