I'd be interested to go to this event, it would be the first for me and the only mods I have so far are the factory skids and engine /trans skid I put on. I have a winch but do not have a lift yet and am still on stock tires. It's a 2013 Moab with 3.73 lsd, do you think it's capable enough.
Any info on the event would be appreciated, I googled it and only got a bunch of vids and a facebook page.

Yes you're vehicle can handle it. There are a few totally stock jeeps that show up every event. There are "hero" loops that venture into some harder stuff. Rock crawls, mud, technical stuff. I'd suggest you don't attempt those. Roughly a 20 mile trail ride plus the extra hero loops and "playground" areas. The property is privately owned and is very scenic. There are plenty of elevation changes and nice views from the tops of both ridges.

Gates open up on Fri at 3pm. Dry camping is the name of the game. The road in is narrow in some spots but can handle car hauler trailers up to class A motorhomes towing rigs...With that being said, campers/travel trailers are allowed. There are port-a-johns on site. No trash collection. Pack out what you pack in.

There is a guided night ride Friday night. Nothing crazy. Follow the leader type stuff with no extreme stuff. Usually heads into town for ice cream stop.

The trails open Saturday morning for self exploration, all day until 5pm. Follow the trail arrows. The trail is one way traffic.

Chicken BBQ dinner Saturday evening with raffles.

Trails open on Sunday again until 5pm. This is a family type event with many families bringing the little ones. We try to keep the atmosphere pleasant for all involved. Campfires are ok.

There is a cook shack in the field that opens Saturday and Sunday for breakfast and lunch and beverages.

The events are usually sponsored by OK4WD and NJJA...If you're a little nervous(for lack of a better term) this being your first time, when you check in ask to be directed towards Jim or one of the Officers from NJJA. I know in the past they've been very helpful with other first-timers and can probably direct you towards some others and might even leave you in the hands of an event veteran.

Pre-register at OK4WD website.

It's a good time. I'll be checking you in more then likely. Say hello.

**EDIT** there are other requirements, such as:
recovery points on vehicle
licensed and insured vehicles only...etc etc

I suggest you check out NJJA website too. They're a really great group of people and can probably give you much more info to steer you in the right direction.
