Hi, I am absolutely brand new to this - no prior experience whatsoever. I have a Dodge Ram Rebel+ 2021. Looking forward to learning some stuff, and hopefully doing this more often in future! From what I can tell, very little is required in the way of purchases for the first drive? Is it supplied? Or should I hustle to the store and pick up the essentials? thanks!

Welcome to Carnity of-road club. And congrats on the new Ram Rebel, indeed a very capable pickup truck and a good choice you've made. Please make sure that your Ram has a minimum of 8 inches of ground clearance along with front and rear tow point or tow hooks, as few Ram with sport bumper lacks both of the above mandatory requirements.

From off-road gear requirements, you need to have a tire pressure gauge, deflator and compressor as a minimum. For your first drive walkie talkie (radio) will be provided to you by trip lead. From the second drive onward you will need all off-road gears mentioned as per offroad structure at different ranks.

Hi @Ijaz the absolute newbie drive is mandatory for anyone new in Carnity community. Yes you are in the right drive looking on your profile. I'll probably see you then. After this we can join the newbie drives. Cheers!

Ok, so I have two front tow hooks, and the 8 inch clearance. However, at the rear I dont have dedicated tow hooks. I have the tow hitch, which has two holes in it which look like they are designed to take a shackle or similar. What would you suggest?

thanks
