I am not sure because I have yet to do the trail but I know people have taken stock outfits through there, I assume bypassing some of the more difficult sections. I plan on making a trip out there in about 2 years and give it a try.

Do you have lockers or limited slip? That would make a big difference as well I imagine.

Not sure if you've seen the Project JK guys/gals do it but here is their video with several different set ups running the Rubicon. This is part 1 of 3 videos you can watch on youtube.

BTW my is 08 4d Rubicon, so I do have lockers. I'm planning to do Rubicon and a lot of other trails this summer. Will take a 2months trip to do as much as I can.
