1 to run the black trails you will need biger tires.
2 don't leave the Hilift jack where you have it on the trail.
mount it some where esle. Inside or on the hood.

Why not stick to green until you're comfortable with the drive, and then step up? Powerline road had me shutting stones because I had 33's on with stick ride height, and the tires would hit the genders at every bump. This with 900 miles on it.

Move your jack and your all set. No rig is ever "done" or perfectly set up. Go, enjoy the trails you are comfortable with and make changes as you feel you need them. You might just be surprised how well the machine does, the limiting factor is usually the driver.

Agreed! Airing down and disconecting the front swaybar are two of the biggest changes you can really feel in your rig. People are often shocked at the difference the first time they try it.
