You ever watch those old war movies where the hero's buddy gets hit andthrough gritted teeth manages to squeak out the words, "just leave me, save yourself." It can sometimes feel like that when you're wheeling. Most times you're the hero who makes it out unscathed, but sometimes you're the unlucky buddy who gets nailed by a sniper and slows the whole group to a crawl.

When your Jeep breaks down on the trail, it not only affects you, it affects everybody you're wheeling with. If it's an honest break then everybody is usually gung-ho to lend a hand, patch you up, and get you moving on down the trail. But if it's a stupid break caused by apathetic maintenance or careless upkeep on your part, then your buddies may be tempted to leave you for the enemy. So here are a few areas that may cause your Jeep troubles on the trail and what you can do to minimize the chances you'll become a casualty of the trail.
