Well today was the Fall Festival at Superlift Offroad Park in Hot Springs Arkansas. I went with two friends of mine, one who has an 07 wrangler rubicon and the other has a 70s model jimmy thats a dedicated crawler that is so awesome. Anyways I figured I was gonna get my you know what kicked in the dirt, but I kept up with them all day. I was advised to not steer away from twos because my jk couldn't handle threes (this park is rated 1-5, 1 being almost no 4wd needed, and 5 being near impossible even in dedicated crawlers), well they were wrong.
My jk went everywhere my buddies rubicon did, and with ease. I didn't even bother to disco. I guess 2 inches of lift, 33's and my rugged ridge xhd was just enough to keep up with my buddies stock rubicon. I actually suprised my buddy that has the Jimmy, he has an 04 rubicon, and is a very competent off roader, and he told me that his 04 has trouble making it up some of the trails that I did with ease. 3's and a couple of 4's all day. JK's are the real deal, just as capable as they have always been. OH btw, I have an 07 jk 2door with an auto tranny, and ran in 4 low for over 4 hours and had absolutely no issues with overheating. God I love my jeep.
