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
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.

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.

Fred1 Hey Don, Thanks for representing for the TJ/LJ owners.
11-02-2012 09:09 PM
yeeper5150 Is it time to go again?
11-02-2012 06:23 PM
suicideking I'm going to watch it tonight, can't wait!
11-02-2012 06:17 PM
2acrawl Thanks again D love both video's. Maybe don't want you to take your jeep becouse It is pretty cool having a Camera man.
11-02-2012 04:40 PM
donbadabon Excellent videos - nice work as always.
11-02-2012 02:38 PM
Lab Lover 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
11-02-2012 11:52 AM
longnose 359 Thanks D. Just got home and watched them both. Must say I learned things by driving it and and by watching your videos. Great job!

The sad part is that I've been wheeling for years. And know that a stock rig at night up there is a bad idea. But pride and the skinny pedal got the best of me that night. Lol.

But again, mad props on getting them all home. Look forward to wheeling with you guys soon.

With Don? That was a punctured side wall. Nothing you can do about that.

Amazing job on the spotting. Love the Sports with the open Diffs, spinning tires and rail sliding. Great job getting them through.
