How tough

So ive been wondering I take my jeep on light easy trails and open fields but how much can a stock YJ take i mean i just pulled my buddys Ram 1500 out and she didnt even seem to mind and its only a 4 banger which i am learning more and more how powerful those lower gears are.

Most people will be surprised just how much a stock jeep will do.

Test it till you break it, then upgrade!

^ I was shocked a number of times when my stock jeep didn't get stuck when I thought for sure I wasn't going to make it. My friends were too.

My mother's been driving her 4 banger Wrangler since 1998...130,000 miles and minimal indication that it won't last forever.

oh yeah, you'll be amazed at a stock jeep. and those gears are great. honestly the 4 cylinder is great off road, i wheeled my old 4 banger soa and all out and loved it. the nice thing is it doesn't have enough power to break itself if you make a mistake. the only thing it isn't good in is sand climbs, they rob horsepower.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
