It's when you go off of the main road and onto the trails that you might run into more challenging terrain. They have sand, water, hills, and mud. You pick what you want
yea but is it worth the 30 dollars to just cruise the beach

There is a lot more to it than just the beach, I guess you would have to go and see for yourself if it is worth it. By the way, it's $20, when I went there about a month ago, $10 for the Jeep and $10 for me.

DSO has plenty of different areas to it. The beach is cool. They have the sand pit with hills and some mud. They have some trails that aren't that bad. Easily doable in a stock jeep. Then they have some bad trails. Even on the bad trails you can go around most holes and the ones you can't you can turn around and drive back out. Can easily make a full day in stock jeep so yea to me its worth the 30 dollars.

I was looking at DSO in google maps and also looking at DSO's own maps from their website. It looks like a very large area. Question though... suppose I do not like to do mudding. Are there any other types of obstacles out at DSO for a jeep that is built primarily for rock crawling and low gearing?

I'm not too keen on getting into deep mud. Although I have a lot of clearance, big tires and a reliable winch... my jeep is very heavy and has a stock 4.0 and it is geared very low... my jeep is just not built for mudding. I suppose it would still be awesome just to explore as many trails as possible and if I have to go through some mud, that is okay.

And it's a breeding ground for four wheelers and side by sides.

No worries, we can be close cousins. Mine only has a 1.25" body lift and 3/4" coil spacers.

This is me......just no where close to this clean these days.

Please note that every Jeep is different, so one answer does not suit all Jeeps; however,......

Generally with the longer rear driveshaft of the LJ, you don't encounter driveline issues until 3"+.
If you incorporate a 1" or 1.25" body lift into whatever setup you decide to go with, you can also opt for a 1" motor mount lift, which will assist in correcting the rear driveline. That will keep you from having to lower the tcase.

A very common lift for TJs to run 33" tires is a 2.5" suspension lift and 1.25" body lift. Too much past that and you get too tall for the tires.

Steering upgrades will have more to do with the size tire you're running than the lift itself.


I will probably be out in the garage working on my Jeep this weekend if you feel like stopping by.

What about a 3inch spacer lift. New shocks and a tcase drop. I'm not big into body lifts. Would it work or would it be pointless?

Alright so if anyone even checks this deal anymore. I think Ima go with the rough country 4 inch n2.0 lift kit. 33/12.5/15 as recommended. Any objections to this lift and or brand?

You are thinking about going with the rough country because it is the cheapest you can find? You get what you pay for...

What's the problem with it? And is a $3000 pro comp lift that gives me 3.5 inches better? I don't see how price factors. I'm willing to pay more but idk what brand is the best quality. Any suggestions?

Pro Comp, Zone, Rough Country, Sky Jacker, Rancho, Super Lift, Rubicon Express, Fabtech, etc, etc, etc......they are all kits in the same boat as each other. Their shocks come from the same factories in Mexico, and they all have the same quality and basic designed kits.

Pure and simple.......You have to move away from a "box-kit" lift to get anything different.

RC's product is as good (and in some cases better) as any of those fore-mentioned companies...at a fraction of the price.
They are making their money on volume sales and reduced and free marketing vs selling through 4 Wheel Parts and Quadratec. It's simple business dynamics....not "it's the cheapest...you get what you pay for." That's a scare tactic by people that don't know any better.
