Off-roading is a growing sport among outdoor enthusiasts who want to get out of the city and experience the challenges of driving over rough terrain. Getting started can be a challenge, though.

One way is to plug into the off-roading community in your local area. You can find local clubs that meet regularly listed in the phone book, or you can connect with them on internet forums for off-road vehicles. Manufacturers of off-road vehicles like Jeep will also hold events like Jeep Jamborees, which can give you a chance to connect with people in your area.

Once you get started in off-roading, you'll also want to look into the types of after-market modifications that you can add to your vehicle to improve its performance. They range from specialty tires designed for different terrain to lift kits that will give your vehicle additional clearance.
