Axle clearance is not that great.

Obviously the most extreme trails call for raised jeeps among other things... and naturally it would make sense to have good knowledge where you can and cannot go in the stock rubi.... I love this new one and my 04 went everywhere I needed ... I'll take the time and get used to wheelin' the '12 . I'd venture a guess, especially here in Monterey and Pebble Beach... the raised rubi's are a fashion statement, still much cooler than all the damn Range Rovers takin up space around here.

Mine is still stock. I can take it to about 75% of the trails around here safely. To get to 95%, I'll need 35s. However, I'm fine with avoiding some and learning to wheel on moderate trails. I see a few stock Jeeps when I go wheeling...makes me feel a lot better.

^^ Yup... same here... After a year or two I may want to do the tough stuff and will need to raise and buy more rubber... I may hold off on the extra armor for now as well. I really like the auto sway bar disco and the lockers... I used the front and rear lockers on my 04... many times in deep mud where I'd have been stuck w/out em

Sure, a stock Rubicon can tackle the Rubicon Trail as advertised. Of course, it's always easier when you're using someone else's Jeep.

What you'll notice about that video is all the sport models in the first shot are no where to be found on the trail. Once there, it's all rubis.

^this is why I love this forum and the folks on it. I don't think it could have been said any better.
