Cool Which Wrangler to buy for Off-roading in Mountains

Hello Off-roaders!

I'm looking at buying a new 2012 Wrangler and need some pointers - I understand the Rubicon is the one to buy but not cheap! so i'm considering a standard Wrangler Sport 6 speed and adding a few goodies...such as tougher and bigger off road tires and wheels, bull bar and winche, skid pans under fuel tank and other area's engine and side bars. My offroading is not super serious like rock climbing more off roading in the Wassach Mountains dirt roads in Utah in the summer...is there a Jeep 1-800 number for help to my questions or Help and coaching please from the forum?

as for questions about jeeps, there are tons of guys and gals here that are so well versed in wranglers that i would trust their word 100 times over before i trusted someone on the other end of the phone from Chrysler.

as for getting you comfortable about off-roading, i would suggest joining a local jeep club. or at least looking into it, sometimes (depending on the club) you can ride along with them for a bit to see if you like it before you actually join. that would be your best bet for expanding on your off-roading abilities

A locker will be probably the most beneficial to you or anyone off road.
thats my 10 cents.

As a newb, this had never crossed my mind. I've rode along with a few of my buddies in their trucks, but I would have never thought of this as a learning experience. Excellent advice. Mike.
