I have a stock 2012 Sport and did have some real good fun. Even though I have done some wheeling on my Jeep before but driving across all that mud was quite a novel experience for me. That place has all sorts of trails, you can stay within your comfort zone or could get a tad adventurous and try to explore the limits of your rig.
Sahara is much more capable than my Jeep, if you have rock rails on yours then it might be worth crawling on top of the pile of rocks they have kept over there, that was quite an exhilarating experience.
