Stock JKU make it up Miller Trail?

I have a 2010 JKU sahara. No LSD and stock other than 33" nitto grapplers. Do you think i'd be able to make it up Miller trail without LSD or Lockers? I dont plan to do much wheeling so I wasn't going to get a locker. But I want the jeep to be capable, not sure how much it can handle with the open diffs.

Miller is no problem. There are some tight spots at the top with some rocks so rock rails would be nice but they are not mandatory just watch where you put your wheels.

Haven't been up there in a while but last time at the top right before you pop out into the camp ground the bush up there was getting thick so your rig might get some pin striping. Maybe someone that has been up there in the last week or two will pipe in about the current trail condition.

Very easy trail. The 4x4 course in Gorman is tougher than Miller.

Try going downhill first. My first run on Miller in a stock JK Rubi was downhill. Have fun!

Easily. Just take it slow so you do not slam rails on the rocks. When you going?

Yes I made it completely stock but I would highly recommend rock rails as stated by other post.

I made it up with a stock 2.5 YJ on 31 inch street tires and a 1 inch shackle lift. Only got strapped twice. My first ever Jeep trail. Now I know to put the tire on the big rock, don't straddle it. You have a lot more jeep than I do and other than those two spots it was easy.
