Anyway I'm learning as I go. No expert, I know enough to know I don't know enough.

Getting awesome help from other forum members and local shops, club instructors/members.
Did a little off-road, little family camping, little build work. Thanks Stage3 Frank etc.

Then I signed up for this Overland clubs Skill Builder day this weekend.

A fun totally insane baptism by fire !!!

Put the F150, ridge grapplers, RCI skids and driver to the test. OMG

So thought I'd share and invite anyone else who wants to share their experiences, plans etc. with Gen14 or anything. What works, what doesn't. - in this new section: Overlanding, Off Roading, Backcountry, Camping, Family Fun Outings

I ran my XLT with basically just Ridge Grapplers and RCI front engine plates. (Awesome!)

Lessons learned: Need more plates, min 2.0 level kit, more seat time. ha ha

Scraped about everything possible, air dam, bumper, skid plates, lower control arms, transmission cross member, Diff. LOL Go out with folks who know what the heck they are doing.

Buried her up to the axles, learned many recovery lessons.

This Newb was terrified and excited. Working towards comfortable and competent

Admins, I still think we need an official all inclusive dirt section like this title implies.

What is the clubs name? I am also in SoCal and looking to get more into off roading/overlanding. Most of the groups I find are more Jeep focused.

I read this thinking it was someone responding and digging on your wheel, then saw it was you, the owner of said wheel. Results are the same, and when doing stuff like that it's good to have the reference. Loved the videos!

Lead Foot Lariat PowerBoost (on order)
Inspiring. Thinking I should take a course like this.

I live in NorCal. Looks like there may be a few available there. Like the sound of this one: Don’t get frustrated and confused by all the trainers out there who talk about getting bigger wheels and tires, lift kits, suspension upgrades, and the like. If you bought a nice Jeep, pickup, or SUV to go on adventures you don’t need to spend even more money to take it safely off road.

Hopefully an FX4 package will be enough.
