2011 JK off road

I've been a 2011 JK owner for 2 years now and I have yet to take my jeep off-roading...no joke... I have yet to get my wrangler mud tires or lifted so it's still at its basic form just they way I bought it. My question is, is it okay/safe for me to go off roading in my jeep that hasn't had any work done on it? I REALLY WANNA GO.

Yes. Jeeps are made to go off roading right off the factory line. I got my brand new jeep 4 months ago and besides rims it is stock and I take it twice a month off roading. My tires are stock tires.

Other than putting some skid plates on mine, I off-roaded for a couple of years, before I got a lift.

I wheeled my Jeep stock for roughly 8 years due to budgetary constraints - best times and memories of my Jeep to date.

just be careful because once you wheel it stock you're going to want to spend lots of money and spend lots of time wrenching on it. stick to greens for starters and go with exprienced people, and go slow and take your time. the jeep can do A LOT stock.

It is the wrong time of year for this part of the country, but look for events where there are controlled courses with experienced spotters there to help you learn the capabilities of your Jeep. I have worked at the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival all three years and there are tons of first time wheelers there and they are all amazed at what their stock Jeeps can do. You should look into it for next June. The web site is supposed to be updated by thanksgiving.
