Alright haha, nice shocks and springs by the way. I believe since baja is normally hot you may want hood louvers to let more engine heat escape, check out poison spyder for them. Besides that there's not a whole lot, in baja armor isn't really that big of an issue. You have a lift and larger tires, Just make sure your a/c works.

I agree ^ I thought about that after I posted it. Baja is notorious for riding at night, light is always a biggie

I've never been to Baja but what might help:
-Specs or a list of mods you've already done to your Jeep
-Some better pics

It looks like you have a Sport so 6cyl, and a lift of some sort, and some larger tires. What about:

-Recovery points?
-Recovery gear?
-Winch?
-Armor?
-Any motor/exhaust mods?
-What lift? Suspension? Body?
-Full size spare?

Not knowing much, I'd suggest making sure you have a full size spare and the proper tools to fix something should it break on the trail, and proper recovery points should you end up off trail? Basic Wranglers are extremely capable, so start with the basics and move on from there.

Yeah, I agree. Coil up an extra Serp belt somewhere in the engine compartment.

I would also make sure your Cooling system is working 100% with no leaks or weeps.

Tequila!

Seriously it's pretty sandy and dusty, check your air filter.

Also, make sure you stop half way down at Todos Santos and check out the real Hotel California
