In need of advice for off road jeeping

Last week I purchased a 2012 wrangler Sahara arctic edition. My question is....can my stock wrangler handle off road driving well (speaking of durability) or should I consider modifications to suspension, tires etc.?

The Jeep Wrangler--in any trim level--is as far as I know the most capable offroad production vehicle available in the US.

Setting aside heavily modified vehicles and Rubicon trim level Wranglers, the chances that you pass anything on your way to work that is more capable offroad than your Wrangler are very, very slim.

However, that does not mean it is invincible. It is a tool like any other, and if you don't know how to use it, you're likely to break something. But by the time you do that, you would've long broken (or gotten stuck) in any other mass production vehicle.

Being that the wrangler is the best out of the box off road streetable vehlcile in the world.. Just point and go.. A stock wrangler can do amazing things. As you go along when you offroad it as it is now.. you will learn what you will need to add.. Armor, Recovery, Lift, Tires, aditional traction help.. Depending on where you go offroading can effect greatly on what you will need to do or not need to do
