I've learned I want Pluke to be my spotter the first time I go though anything like this

Seeing everyone getting through that stuff made me feel more comfortable that my Jeep might survive

Awesome video!!! Great footage and spotting by the camera man - pluke the 2?

Does anyone know what mod's the jeeps in the video above (post #134) have done to them? what is the minimum recommended mod's needed on a 2013 JKUR? I'd like to build mine up to be able to do this trail someday. i have a list of parts but want to double check it before i buy anything.

thanks

Skids-you can't have to many skids. Rockers, lca's, evap, maybe engine and tranny, rear shocks. That is a neat trail. Good Luck.

I agree with what the others said.

If you want to see someone's build, click on 'GARAGE' under their username to the left. I have my complete build in that profile as do many others.

In the meantime, yeah: Lift, tires, armor, locker. Rails are always a good first mod.
