You don't "need" a 'nice lift and tires'.
Adding to the list: fire extinguisher, cell phone, food, jackets, CB radio, extra parts, and of course, at least one other rig.

A vehicle in good mechanical condition, recovery gear for the type of terrain you're going to encounter, and the usual safety/emergency gear you should have otherwise.

You don't have to buy kit, modify your vehicle, or spend a fortune in order to leave the tarmac. Despite what the 4x4 rags and webwheelers would have you believe.

If a JKR can be driven the length of the Rubicon Trail stock, there really isn't a need to modify suspension and wheels for trailing. OTH, for "trialing", where you're intentionally looking for obstacles to overcome, mods may be needed.

Best way to put it I've ever seen!!

read the forum long enough and you thing you need 42s on full welded cages with coilovers and 5 point harness' to put your jeep on natural mother earth.

I think basic first aid stuff, a wheeling partner and a good cell phone signal if you are staying close to home. More things if the trip is farther away and extended time wise that aid in safety and recovery.

First aid kit too obviously, just make sure you have a good idea of the limits of your vehicle and you should be fine and still have fun. You dont need a $50,000 rig to wheel.
