I've done it a few times...you can choose an easier line in a couple places, but I'd recommend at least a rear locker, lift and 33's. Had a friend do it on 31's (Rubicon) and he got high centered and had to self-winch himself off the boulder.

Been done in a stock XJ with 29" tires, open diffs and rock rails. Take your time, pick your lines and do not be afraid to use your rails, that is what they are for. It is makes a good day run so make sure your crew is up for it. Seems a lot of folks nowadays like to finish fast and thus rig size minimums are over-exagerated at times. Imo

Hey Dave, here's some pictures. Don't need no stinking locker!
Actually, there are a couple of spots a locker might come in handy depending on the line you take.

I might like to join. It would be my 3rd week in a row on that trail, but its a good trail and I like deep creek.
I dont think "requirements" may be the correct term. As noted some can run it on their rails with smaller lifts and tires. With that said, I wouldnt want to and I just like to let people know what they may encounter (I dont want to feel responsible if they damage their jeep). We have stock jeeps with us all the time and it can be fun to get them through the tougher stuff. The run we have this weekend is two trails, that why I kinda wanted Jeeps that were equipped.

When's the last time you lead a group of stock jeep through any trails?

Not everyone has an XJ to carelessly bash through trails. People are anal with their JK's and every scratch and dent counts. Folks these days don't want to spend all day trail fixing. They also feel more safe having a minimum requirement to confidently attend a trail outing.

Haha, you all are funny it has been years but it can be done. Requirements can vary by person's experience and lines taken. Sure some of the "Big Boys" and "Big Girls" can get through faster but on a trail like this a stocker can get through with time and patience, so does that make a locker and 33"+ tires a requirement? I think not.
I prefer to enjoy the trail and the thought process that goes with having to carefully select a line. I do appreciate the well built rigs and the engineering that goes into them, however trails like this do not require it. IMO.
Oh yeah, the XJ's only "damage" was to the paint on the rock sliders and a limb through the tire before the trail even started. All fixed and we had a great day on the trail, not a few hours.

Oh and I was not trying to knock IH8RDS recommendations, she has a lot of experience, just trying to say a stocker could do it with time.
I think this said it best with these runs, " Folks these days don't want to spend all day trail fixing." I guess I am not one of those folks in a hurry.

They're not scratches. It's Desert Pinstriping. And plastic running boards aren't sliders. More like snag, stuck on the rock. Lol.

So if that happens do I push peddle on the right push the right pedal down harder?
I had sage brush do the pinstriping on my Jeep! He does good work!

I did that on Doran at Calico at night. Ended up replacing most of the undercarriage. Lol. Good excuse for the lift and tires that go on Friday. WooHoo!!!
