Rick’s Explorer is accompanied by a Grand Cherokee, CJ-5, CJ-7 and, of course, a Hummer. Subjects covered include: 4WD components, trip preparation, guidelines, rules, climbing hills, backing down hills you don’t make, descending hills, side hilling, crossing a ditch and driving techniques in a variety of terrain (mud, sand, water, snow, and rocks).
